Python is an awful technology stack when it comes to cryptographic libraries
support, I'm sorry to say. You could try and expand on the developing pycryptopp
(Language binding for libcrypto++) library. I'm confident that you'll have to
use at least 2-3 different cryptographic packages to make use of all the
algorithms needed for a decent setup.
Try `pip search crypto` to get an idea of what's available.
If what you are doing is for production I'd be careful what I would use, most of
the python packages I've experimented with are far from mature let alone
If you are comfortable enough with Cython and C/C++, you could group all your
needs of cryptographic functions into class(es) or function(s) using libcrypto++
or libgcrypt, they are both are very well established libraries. Then use Cython
to interface with the few classes/functions you coded in C or C++ to minimize
the amount of code you'll have to do in Cython.

I am sure this has been discussed endlessly on the list, but I am looking for
message based authentication, message integrity and encryption for PUB-SUB. And
since the first rule of cryptography is "Don't do it yourself", I was wondering
if you guys could point me in the direction of a library to use. Python is
my preferred language and I will be using ZeroMQ 3.2
