PyKCS11 project home

PyKCS11 is a full PKCS11 wrapper for Python.
PyKCS11 let you access to almost all PKCS#11 functions and data types using any PKCS#11 library, such as the various modules supplied by smartcard vendors.
The wrapper comes with 2 interfaces: a low level and very thin interface over the original PKCS#11 API, generated using the SWIG compiler (designed for library tests); and an high level interface that offers a simpler access (with few limits) to the PKCS#11 APIs.

PyKCS11 is released under the GNU General Public License
