Package to manage your Cyberark implementation

Project description


This python package allow you to use high level functions with your Cyberark implementation



First define a configuration file

  Username: Administrator #optional
  Password: "Cyberark1"   #optional
  Authtype: Cyberark      #optional, default = Cyberark
PVWA: "pvwa.acme.corp"    #mandatory parameter
CAFile: "/valid/path/to/base64_Root_CA.cer" #optional, if not specified cert is not verified
timeout: 30 #(seconds) optional, timeout for requests to PVWA, default = 30
retention: 10 #(days) optional, days of retention for objects in safe, default = 10
CPM: "PasswordManager" #optional, CPM to assign to safes, default = "" (no CPM)

Then in your python code, instantiate the EPV Class with your configuration file

import bastion

epv = EPV("/path/to/config.yml")

Then you call the login function to login to PVWA


If you didn't specified Connection parameters in configuration file, you can also call constructor with these parameters

epv.login(username="Administrator", password="Cyberark1")

Note that if you are already logged in, epv.login() has no effect, but if your session is timed out it create a new token.

Once you are done, you can disconnect with logoff



EPV objects can be serialized using "to_json" function, then deserialized using constructor. However, for security reasons, login and password are not stored in serialized object so you can't relogin after a timeout with a serialized object

epv = EPV("configfile")
json_epv = epv.to_json()

epv = EPV(serialized=json_epv)

Account Manipulation

We provide an object "PrivilegedAccount" that is used for account manipulation. His parameters are the same that Cyberark account representation so you can call constructor with the return of a get_account function unpacked

  "name": "string",
  "address": "string",
  "userName": "string",
  "platformId": "string",
  "safeName": "string",
  "secretType": "key",
  "secret": "string",
  "platformAccountProperties": {},
  "secretManagement": {
    "automaticManagementEnabled": true,
    "manualManagementReason": "string"
  "remoteMachinesAccess": {
    "remoteMachines": "string",
    "accessRestrictedToRemoteMachines": true
