Authenticate http requests from an API key
Authenticate http requests from an API key.
API keys are codes passed in (in the http header API-KEY) by programs calling an API in order to identify -in this case- the calling program’s user.
Take care while using this kind of mechanism since information into http headers are visible in clear. Thus, use it only to authenticate requests from known sources. For unknown sources, it is a good practice to filter out this header at proxy level.
Table of contents
The api key must be provided by the configuration parameter named ‘api_key_*.key’, and the user under the same option ‘api_key_*.user’.
For instance :
[api_key_mykey] key=my_api_key user=my_user
To apply this authentication system to your http request you must set ‘api_key’ as value for the ‘auth’ parameter of your route definition into your controller.
class MyController(Controller): @route('/my_service', auth='api_key', ...) def my_service(self, *args, **kwargs): pass
