Let's talk about what Python has for encryption and cryptography.

We'll cover the following

Python doesn’t have very much in its standard library that deals with encryption. Instead, we get hashing libraries. We’ll take a brief look at those in the chapter, but the primary focus will be on the following 3rd party packages: PyCrypto and cryptography. We will learn how to encrypt and decrypt strings with both of these libraries.
