Python webserver with https and upload support

Project description

Upload Python Package


Defweb is an enhancement of the standard http.server of python3. Defweb supports https and file uploads and can function as a SOCKS 4, 5 or HTTP proxy. Defweb can act as an TCP reverse proxy and can perform TLS MITM / TLS Interception.


Installing the package via pypi:

pip install defweb
usage: defweb [-h] [-b BIND] [-p PORT] [-v] [--log-level LOG_LEVEL] [-d DIR] [-i SERVER NAME] [-s] [-r] [--sign] [--key KEY] [--cert CERT] [--proxy] [--proxy_socks_only] [--proxy_http_only]
              [--rotate_user_agents] [--ip-limit CIDR] [-u USER:PASSWORD] [--rev_proxy] [--rev_proxy_tls] [-ca] [-pi PROXIED_IP] [-pp PROXIED_PORT] [-ptls] [-m MIDDLEWARES]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit

General options:
  -b BIND               ip to bind to; defaults to
  -p PORT               port to use; defaults to 8000
  -v, --version         show version and then exit
  --log-level LOG_LEVEL
                        DEBUG, INFO (default), WARNING, ERROR, CRITICAL

Webserver options:
  -d DIR                path to use as document root
  -i SERVER NAME        server name to send in headers
  -s, --secure          use https instead of http, if --key and --cert are omitted certificates will be auto generated
  -r, --recreate_cert   re-create the generated ssl certificate
  --sign                when using auto generated certs (-s without --key or --cert), should they be signed or not
  --key KEY             key file to use for webserver
  --cert CERT           certificate file to use for webserver

Proxy options:
  --proxy               start proxy for SOCKS4, SOCKS5 & HTTP(S)
  --proxy_socks_only    start proxy only for SOCKS4, SOCKS5
  --proxy_http_only     start proxy only for HTTP(S)
  --rotate_user_agents  generate random user agent for each HTTP request (only HTTP supported)
  --ip-limit CIDR       limit proxy to only accept connections coming from this CIDR range
  -u USER:PASSWORD      user credentials to use when authenticating to the proxy server

Reverse Proxy options:
  --rev_proxy           start reverse TCP proxy
  --rev_proxy_tls       add TLS support to the reverse TCP proxy
  -ca                   whether to setup own CA and sign the certificates used by the --rev_proxy_tls option
  -pi PROXIED_IP        provide the ip of the service we are proxying for
  -pp PROXIED_PORT      provide the port of the service we are proxying for
  -ptls                 whether the service we are proxying for uses TLS
  -m MIDDLEWARES        comma seperated middlewares to use
python3 -m defweb.main

Defweb facilitates uploading files to the document root via the PUT command.

Example for 'curl' and wget (the -k switch (curl) and
--no-check-certificate (wget) is needed because Defweb uses self signed certificates by default).

curl -X PUT --upload-file file.txt https://localhost:8000 -k
wget -O- --method=PUT --body-file=file.txt https://localhost:8000/somefile.txt --no-check-certificate
