How wolfSSL’s Python and Golang Wrappers Simplify SSL/TLS Security in Embedded and IoT Systems

The wolfSSL Python wrapper provides a Python interface to the wolfSSL library, a lightweight and portable SSL/TLS library optimized for performance in embedded and IoT devices.

The wolfSSL Python wrapper allows Python developers to use the wolfSSL library, simplifying the development process and reducing time-to-market. Furthermore, The wolfSSL port allows you to use Python with our FIPS 140-2/3 certified wolfCrypt library, ensuring that it meets strict security standards for developers working with sensitive data.

To use the wolfSSL Python wrapper, developers can follow the instructions provided in the wolfSSL open source projects repository on GitHub. Once installed, developers can easily integrate wolfSSL into their Python applications, from IoT devices to embedded systems.

wolfSSL also has a very simple Golang wrapper. While GO has its own tls/crypto library, wolfSSL is a proven and optimized solution that is a viable option for GO projects. For some insight on how it would work, follow the instructions in this README to view/build a simple server/client example secured by wolfSSL TLS.
