Project description Documentation Status

A command line utility to update AWS Security Groups rules.


  • Update a list of security groups of your AWS account at once.

  • Grant access to informed ports for your current IP address or an informed IP.

  • Read profile files in JSON with all the information needed to contact.

  • Fit for use as script (e.g. to update your dynamic IP regularly).


$ pip install ip-liberator


Consider a file /path/my-profile.json with the following content:

  "credentials": {
    "access_key": "<AWS_ACCESS_KEY>",
    "secret_key": "<AWS_SECRET_KEY>",
    "region_name": "<AWS REGION>"
  "config": {
    "operator": "John",
    "services": [
        "name": "FTP+SFTP",
        "port": "21-22"
        "name": "HTTPS",
        "port": "443"
    "security_groups": [

Using the profile defined above will create or update two entries in the informed security groups:

  • John FTP+SFTP granting access for the current IP the ports 21 and 22.

  • John HTTPS granting access for the current IP the port 443.

To accomplish it, simply run:

$ ip-liberator --profile /path/my-profile.json
Authorizing rules ['John FTP+SSH', 'John HTTPS'] to IP
- sg-<GROUP_ID_1>
- sg-<GROUP_ID_2>
