Library to authenticate with a LEAP platform

Project description

This library can be used to authenticate and manage passwords in a LEAP platform. It uses the Secure Remote Password protocol.

To install it:

$ pip install leap.auth

To use it:

from leap.auth import SRPAuth

api_uri = 'https://api.leap.platform:4430/'
ca_cert_path = './path_to_certificate.crt'
# TIP: the certificate is usually at https://api.leap.platform/ca.crt

user = 'username'
password = 'longandsecurepassword'

srp_auth = SRPAuth(api_uri, ca_cert_path)

# register a user
srp_auth.register(user, password)

# authenticate with the defined LEAP server using the registered credentials
auth = srp_auth.authenticate(user, password)
# then you can access:
auth.username
auth.session_id
auth.uuid
auth.token

# changes the authenticated user password using the authentication data
srp_auth.change_password(username, current_password, new_password, auth.token, auth.uuid)

# deletes the session on the server and resets the session locally
srp_auth.logout()
