Not sure how this relates to pycrypto.  But if you keep a unique UID per row,
and a last updated field per row it becomes very straight forward to do a:
select from table where update_time>last_sync

So server A says:
  server B, send me all records updated since X

Then server B says:
  server A, send me all records updated since X

Then you can use a flag for deleted records, an additional table, or even just
a queue, then don't purge a record till you are sure both sides are aware of the.

You didn't mention your database, but be careful not to use auto increment, or
if you do don't use that as a key/index.
