Library for accessing Swagger-enabled API's with bitjws authentication.

Project description

Bravado-bitjws is an add on for Bravado that allows bitjws authentication.


By default it’s expected that secp256k1 is available, so install it before proceeding; make sure to run ./configure --enable-module-recovery. If you’re using some other library that provides the functionality necessary for this, check the Using a custom library section of the bitjws README.

Bravado-bitjws can be installed by running:

pip install bravado-bitjws

Building secp256k1

In case you need to install the secp256k1 C library, the following sequence of commands is recommended. If you already have secp256k1, make sure it was compiled from the expected git commit or it might fail to work due to API incompatibilities.

git clone git:// libsecp256k1
cd libsecp256k1
git checkout d7eb1ae96dfe9d497a26b3e7ff8b6f58e61e400a
./configure --enable-module-recovery
sudo make install


Bravado-bitjws is used just like Bravado. The primary difference users need to be aware of is the management of bitjws keys.

Create a client with existing keys

# Your bitjws private key in WIF
privkey = "KweY4PozGhtkGPMvvD7vk7nLiN6211XZ2QGxLBMginAQW7MBbgp8"

# the URL of the swagger spec
url = ""

# initialize your client
client = BitJWSSwaggerClient.from_url(url, privkey=privkey)

If no key is provided to BitJWSSwaggerClient, one will be generated. However the private key originated, it is important to store private key somewhere secure.

Known Limitations

Currently there is no management of server keys. This means that Bravado-bitjws checks the signature of server responses, but trusts all keys. It is up to the Bravado-bitjws user to match the server’s key against a trusted list.
