Library used to check the OCSP revocation status for a x509 digital certificate.
OCSP-Checker is a python package based on Alban Diquet's nassl wrapper and the Python Cryptographic Authority's cryptography package. Relying on a web browser to check the revocation status of a x509 digital certificate has been broken from the beginning, and validating certificates outside of the web browser is a manual process. OCSP-Checker aims to solve this by providing an automated means to check the OCSP revocation status for a x509 digital certificate.
Python - Python 3.7 (64-bit) and above.
It is strongly recommended to run ocsp-checker in a virtual environment. This will prevent you from impacting your system python when installing its dependencies. venv is a good option, with an example below:
python -m venv ocsp-checker
cd ocsp-checker && source bin/activate
Once your virtual environment is activated, install ocsp-checker as follows:
pip install ocsp-checker
>>> from ocspchecker import ocspchecker >>> ocsp_request = ocspchecker.get_ocsp_status("github.com")
Sample output below, let me know if you want to add more fields/information to the output.
['Host: github.com:443', 'OCSP URL: http://ocsp.digicert.com', 'OCSP Status: GOOD']
PLEASE NOTE: If you run this on a network with a MITM SSL proxy, you may receive unintended results (see below):
["Error: Certificate Authority Information Access (AIA) Extension Missing. Possible MITM Proxy."]
