Install from PyPI
python3 -m pip install awsiotsdk
Install from source
git clone https://github.com/aws/aws-iot-device-sdk-python-v2.git python3 -m pip install ./aws-iot-device-sdk-python-v2
awsiotsdk depends on awscrt, which makes use of C extensions. Precompiled wheels are downloaded when installing on major platforms (Mac, Windows, Linux, Raspberry Pi OS). If wheels are unavailable for your platform, your machine must compile some C libraries. If you encounter issues, be sure the following are installed and try again:
- CMake 3.1+
- Python headers and libs
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install cmake sudo apt-get install python3-dev
Mac-Only TLS Behavior
Please note that on Mac, once a private key is used with a certificate, that certificate-key pair is imported into the Mac Keychain. All subsequent uses of that certificate will use the stored private key and ignore anything passed in programmatically. Beginning in v1.3.2, when a stored private key from the Keychain is used, the following will be logged at the "info" log level:
static: certificate has an existing certificate-key pair that was previously imported into the Keychain. Using key from Keychain instead of the one provided.
