Project Description

Ticket creation

Importing nessesary modules:

>>> from M2Crypto import RSA
>>> import auth_pubtkt
>>> import auth_pubtkt.tests
>>> import os.path
>>> import time, datetime

Loading RSA private key from tests package:

>>> privkey_path = os.path.join(os.path.dirname(auth_pubtkt.tests.__file__), 'rsa_priv.pem')
>>> privkey = RSA.load_key(privkey_path)

Set expiration time to 2011/01/01 00:00

>>> validuntil = int(time.mktime(datetime.datetime(2011, 1, 1).timetuple()))

Generating ticket for user ‘john’:

>>> ticket = auth_pubtkt.create_ticket(privkey, 'john', validuntil, tokens=['su'])
>>> ticket


>>> import urllib
>>> pubkey_path = os.path.join(os.path.dirname(auth_pubtkt.tests.__file__), 'rsa_pub.pem')
>>> pubkey = RSA.load_pub_key(pubkey_path)
>>> def test_app(environ, start_response):
...    for key in sorted(environ.keys()):
...        print '%s: %s' % (key, environ[key])
>>> app = auth_pubtkt.AuthPubTKTMiddleware(test_app, pubkey)
>>> env = {}
>>> env['REMOTE_ADDR'] = ''
>>> env['REQUEST_METHOD'] = 'GET'
>>> env['HTTP_COOKIE'] = 'auth_pubtkt="%s"' % urllib.quote(ticket)
>>> app(env, lambda status, start: None)
AUTH_TYPE: cookie
HTTP_COOKIE: auth_pubtkt="uid%3Djohn%3Bvaliduntil%3D1293814800%3Btokens%3Dsu%3Bsig%3DYuM/RL8ub%2BXMb0ZTTlFYF6ehwRV8SnKx%2BTLj/syZmVx1ncR4QD58OMdRkmdmDCY9sdsoivcf%2BACRCRX19nmEc5Ba%2B182FyRKC8bGL51GwPs%2BlMgaIaXxvhSvRbl/00sTWny%2BXEv1fEQDSc5tw3/ug6/YA9xt2wywUX1%2BhxfWQ5U%3D"
auth_pubtkt.ticket_fields: {'tokens': ['su'], 'validuntil': 1293814800, 'uid': 'john'}
