httplib2 extension that is more paranoid about input

Project Description

TinfoilHat is a httplib2 extension that is more paranoid about input. It won’t allow downloading data from private IP ranges.

This library was inspired by, but is not yet as paranoid as, Perl’s LWPx::ParanoidAgent.

Example usage

TinfoilHat is a drop-in replacement for httplib2:

>>> import tinfoilhat
>>> client = tinfoilhat.Http()
>>> client.request('http://0.1.2.3/')
...
tinfoilhat.BlockedError: Host name 0.1.2.3 is blocked

You can also specify an additional blacklist as a list of regular expressions:

>>> import tinfoilhat
>>> client = tinfoilhat.Http(blacklist=['83\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+'])
>>> client.request('http://83.5.6.7')
...
tinfoilhat.BlockedError: Host name 83.5.6.7 is blocked
