You won't get around installing some thirdparty libs, in case you want speedy 

What I can recommend:

<shameless plug>

Get PyCrypto from and install on top of it. yawPyCrypto shields 
you from many of the complexities of the underlying code, and offers a 
uniform interface to encryption using PyCrypto.

Example code which demonstrates yawPyCrypto is included in the package on 
SourceForge. You need to install both yawPyCrypto and Flatten to have a 
working installation. Flatten is also found on the yawPyCrypto page at 

I'd love to get some feedback on your mileage... ;)
