Project Description

Full documentation is available.

Obtaining an API Key

The absio library requires a valid API Key that must be passed into the absio.initialize(...) function. Obtain an API Key by contacting us here or sending an email to An API key should be considered private and protected as such.

Quick Start


pip install absio

Import and initialize the module:

import absio
absio.initialize(api_key='your api key')

Create accounts:

alice = absio.user.create('password', 'reminder', 'passphrase')
bob = absio.user.create('password', 'reminder', 'passphrase')

Log in with an account:

absio.login(, 'password', 'passphrase')

Create and share an Absio Secured Container:

container = absio.container.create(
    header={'some sensitive metadata': None},
    content=open('/some/sensitive/data.bin', 'rb').read(),

Securely access this container from another system:

absio.login(, 'password', 'passphrase')

# Access the container with the container ID returned during creation, or a Container Event.
container = absio.container.get('container_id')
