Mock SSH server for testing purposes

Project Description

mock-ssh-server packs a Python context manager that implements an SSH server for testing purposes. It is built on top of paramiko, so it does not need OpenSSH binaries to be installed.

Sample usage

As a py.test fixture:

import os

from pytest import yield_fixture

import mockssh


@yield_fixture()
def server():
    users = {
        "sample-user": "/path/to/user-private-key,
    }
    with mockssh.Server(users) as s:
        yield s


def test_ssh_session(server):
    for uid in server.users:
        with server.client(uid) as c:
            _, stdout, _ = c.exec_command("ls /")
            assert stdout.read()

def test_sftp_session(server):
    for uid in server.users:
        target_dir = tempfile.mkdtemp()
        target_fname = os.path.join(target_dir, "foo")
        assert not os.access(target_fname, os.F_OK)

        with server.client(uid) as c:
            sftp = c.open_sftp()
            sftp.put(__file__, target_fname, confirm=True)
            assert os.access(target_fname, os.F_OK)
