Yet another newbie question/observation ...
So every example I can find of using python-cryptography includes a
call to cryptography.hazmat.backends.default_backend(). Of course, the
documentation at https://cryptography.io/en/latest/hazmat/backends/
This is a “Hazardous Materials” module. You should ONLY use it if
you’re 100% absolutely sure that you know what you’re doing because
this module is full of land mines, dragons, and dinosaurs with laser
Anyone else see a conflict here?
