python-nss - Python bindings for Network Security Services (NSS)
This package provides Python bindings for Network Security Services
(NSS) and the Netscape Portable Runtime (NSPR).
NSS is a set of libraries supporting security-enabled client and
server applications. Applications built with NSS can support SSL v2
and v3, TLS, PKCS #5, PKCS #7, PKCS #11, PKCS #12, S/MIME, X.509 v3
certificates, and other security standards. Specific NSS
implementations have been FIPS-140 certified.
