Look for mxCrypto.  Note that both AMK's package and mxCrypto use
external C libraries, so they aren't pure Python.  I don't know if
that's platform-independent enough for you.

See http://www.nightsong.com/phr/python/crypto.txt for a description
of something I've been doing.  It doesn't support RSA at the moment but
I can add that if there's a reason to do so.  It's in pure Python.

Can you say what your precise application is, that requires RSA?
