AST based Obfuscator for Python

Project description


An AST based Python obfuscator that robustly mangles names in Python code

Current limitations:

  • DOES NOT SUPPORT: Annotations, evals, templated strings
  • No configuration but instead takes a cautious approach in determining what identifiers to mangle. Globals, kwargs, class namespace identifiers, and others are not obfuscated but this should be user selected in the future
  • It is only tested with Python v3.5 and might not work with other AST versions
  • Scoping for comprehensions are kind of hacky (and basically follows Python 2 comprehension scope leaking methodology)
  • Doesn't support imports of the form import xxx.yyy, as this ast pattern isn't put into the scope and will bomb out


pip install bobskater


from bobskater import obfuscateFile, obfuscateString

#Takes a file path and overwrites it with the obfuscated file

#Takes a string of Python code and obfuscates it, returning the result
output = obfuscateString(open('', 'r').read())
