Flask client side session serializer, using Sodium SecretBox authenticated encryption

Project description

This is a Flask session serializer that encrypts the session using crypto_secretbox. Flask-SecretBox-Session is a drop-in replacement for the default Flask session serializer.


from secretbox_session import SecretboxCookieSessionInterface app.session_interface = SecretboxCookieSessionInterface()

To override the key used for storing the timestamp for avoiding clashes with your own session objects, you can use the timestamp_key named argument, like so:

app.session_interface = SecretboxCookieSessionInterface(timestamp_key=’__timestamp’)

The default value of timestamp_key is ‘__session_timestamp__’.
