Python interface to CryptoSys PKI
This is a Python interface to the CryptoSys PKI Pro library.
Requires: Python 2 (2.6 or above) on Windows platforms only. CryptoSys PKI Pro v11.2 or above must be installed. This is available from
To use in Python’s REPL
>>> from cryptosyspki import * >>> Gen.version() # "hello world!" for CryptoSys PKI 110200 >>> Hash.hex_from_data('abc') # compute SHA-1 hash in hex of the string 'abc' 'a9993e364706816aba3e25717850c26c9cd0d89d' >>> Hash.hex_from_data('abc', Hash.Alg.SHA256) # same but using SHA-256 'ba7816bf8f01cfea414140de5dae2223b00361a396177a9cb410ff61f20015ad' >>> h = Hash.data('abc') # h is a byte array >>> print Cnv.tohex(h) # display the byte array in hex A9993E364706816ABA3E25717850C26C9CD0D89D
If you don’t like import * and find cryptosyspki a bit long to type each time, try
>>> import cryptosyspki as pki >>> pki.Gen.version() 110200
Look in the file test\test_pki.py and you should find an example of use for almost every available method (perhaps contrived somewhat so they’ll work in the test environment, but you should get the idea). See also the main Python web page https://www.cryptosys.net/pki/python.html.
There is a series of tests in test\test_pki.py.
The tests require certain files to exist in the current working directory and create extra files when they run. To manage this, test_pki.py creates a temporary subdirectory. It requires a subdirectory work to exist in the same folder as the test_pki.py file which should contain all the required test files, available separately in the file pkiPythonTestFiles.zip. The test function then creates a temporary subdirectory which is deleted automatically.
test/ test_pki.py # this module pkiPythonTestFiles.zip # spare copies work/ # this _must_ exist <all required test files> pki.tmp.XXXXXXXX/ # created by `setup_temp_dir()` <copy of all required test files> <files created by tests>

Synchronized cryptosyspki.py version number with main core module (11.2).
Substantial changes to inline documentation.
Renamed Rng.bytes to Rng.bytestring to avoid clashes with Python built-in function.
Changed parameters in X509.cert_path_is_valid() and X509.get_cert_count_from_p7().
cryptosyspki.py v0.1.0 released.
