Project Description
A HTTPS client implementation for
  • httplib (Python 2), http.client (Python 3) and
  • urllib2 (Python 2) and urllib (Python 3)

… based on PyOpenSSL. PyOpenSSL provides a more fully featured SSL implementation over the default provided with Python and importantly enables full verification of the SSL peer using pyasn1.

Releases

0.4.2

  • Fix to bug in ndg.httpsclient.utils.open_url - duplicate open call. Nb. This bug and the fix DO NOT affect the httplib``and ``urllib2 interfaces that this package provides.

0.4.1

  • Added explicit ref to Python 3 in classifier text for Python 3 checking tools.
  • Moved LICENSE file into package

0.4.0

  • Made dual compatible with Python 2 / 3.

0.3.3

  • Fix to add in AnotherName for subjectAltNames field - added for support for CACert issued certs (thanks to Gu1).
  • Fix to HTTP Basic Auth option for ndg.httpsclient.utils.main
  • Fix to ServerSSLCertVerification so that it can pass a function-based callback instead of using __call__. In newer versions of OpenSSL (>= 0.14) the latter failed because of a request for __name__ attribute.

0.3.2

  • Fix to SubjectAltNames support check - should only be enabled if pyasn1 is installed.
  • Fix to open_url: HTTP Request object was being created inside if headers is None block - now corrected to create regardless.
  • Added http basic auth support to script. (Thanks to Willem van Engen)

0.3.1

  • extended utils functions to support keyword for passing additional urllib2 handlers.

0.3.0

  • Added ndg.httpsclient.utils.fetch_stream_from_url function and added parameter for data to post in open_url and fetch_* methods.
  • fix to ndg.httpsclient.utils module _should_use_proxy and open_url functions

0.2.0

  • added support for SSL verification with subjectAltNames using pyasn1
  • fixed minor bug - SSL cert DN prefix matching

0.1.0
