Python Client for Google Cloud KMS

Project description

This is a shared codebase for gcloud-aio-kms and gcloud-rest-kms

Latest PyPI Version (gcloud-aio-kms) Python Version Support (gcloud-aio-kms) Python Version Support (gcloud-rest-kms)


$ pip install --upgrade gcloud-{aio,rest}-kms


We’re still working on more complete documentation, but roughly you can do:

from gcloud.aio.kms import KMS
from gcloud.aio.kms import decode
from gcloud.aio.kms import encode

kms = KMS('my-kms-project', 'my-keyring', 'my-key-name')

# encrypt
plaintext = 'the-best-animal-is-the-aardvark'
ciphertext = await kms.encrypt(encode(plaintext))

# decrypt
assert decode(await kms.decrypt(ciphertext)) == plaintext

# close the HTTP session
# Note that other options include:
# * providing your own session: `KMS(.., session=session)`
# * using a context manager: `async with KMS(..) as kms:`
await kms.close()


For testing purposes, you may want to use gcloud-aio-kms along with a local emulator. Setting the $KMS_EMULATOR_HOST environment variable to the address of your emulator should be enough to do the trick.
