Project description


Client for the PamAuthService


pip install PamAuthServiceClient


Use the PamAuthService running on a unix socket at /run/pam_auth_service.sock.

(If the PamAuthService is running on a network socket use url instead of path)

from pamauthserviceclient.client import PamAuthServiceClient

encryption_key = 'ENCRYPTION KEY'
verification_key = 'VERIFICATION KEY'

path = "/run/pam_auth_service.sock"
# url = ""

client = PamAuthServiceClient(encryption_key, verification_key, path=path)
# client = PamAuthServiceClient(encryption_key, verification_key, url=url)

res = client.authenticate("name", "password")
# None
#    if  name/password don't match
# {'version': '1.0', 'username': 'name', 'allowed_groups': []}
#    if user/password match

allowed_groups = ["group1", "xxx", "yyy", "zzz"]

res2 = client.authenticate("name", "password", allowed_groups)
# {'version': '1.0', 'username': 'name', 'allowed_groups': ['xxx', 'zzz']}
#    if user is authorized and member of the 'xxx' and 'zzz' group
#    and not member of the other groups.
