Security Vulnerabilities

If you’ve identified a security vulnerability in a driver or any other MongoDB project, please report it according to the instructions here.

Installation

PyMongoCrypt can be installed with pip:

$ python -m pip install pymongocrypt
$ python -c "import pymongocrypt; print(pymongocrypt.libmongocrypt_version())"
1.0.0

PyMongoCrypt ships wheels for macOS, Windows, and manylinux2010 that include an embedded libmongocrypt build.

Installing from wheels on Linux requires pip 19 or later because it adds support for manylinux2010 wheels. Older versions of pip will attempt installation using the pymongocrypt-X.Y.tar.gz source distribution which requires the extra step of downloading and installing libmongocrypt as described below. Users can upgrade to pip 19 by running:

$ python -m pip install --upgrade 'pip>=19'

Installing from source

Installing from source (or the pymongocrypt-X.Y.tar.gz source distribution, or pip < 19 on Linux) requires an extra step of installing libmongocrypt. First, install PyMongoCrypt from source:

$ git clone git@github.com:mongodb/libmongocrypt.git
$ python -m pip install ./libmongocrypt/bindings/python

Next, install libmongocrypt.

libmongocrypt is [continuously built and published on evergreen] (https://evergreen.mongodb.com/waterfall/libmongocrypt). The latest tarball containing libmongocrypt built on all supported variants is (published here)[https://s3.amazonaws.com/mciuploads/libmongocrypt/all/master/latest/libmongocrypt-all.tar.gz]. Download and extract libmongocrypt-all.tar.gz and set PYMONGOCRYPT_LIB to the path to your operating system’s libmongocrypt.so file. For example:

$ curl -O https://s3.amazonaws.com/mciuploads/libmongocrypt/all/master/latest/libmongocrypt-all.tar.gz
$ mkdir libmongocrypt-all && tar xzf libmongocrypt-all.tar.gz -C libmongocrypt-all
$ ls libmongocrypt-all

macOS:

$ # Set PYMONGOCRYPT_LIB for macOS:
$ export PYMONGOCRYPT_LIB=$(pwd)/libmongocrypt-all/macos/nocrypto/lib/libmongocrypt.dylib
$ python -c "import pymongocrypt; print(pymongocrypt.libmongocrypt_version())"

Windows:

$ # Set PYMONGOCRYPT_LIB for Windows:
$ chmod +x $(pwd)/libmongocrypt-all/windows-test/nocrypto/bin/mongocrypt.dll
$ export PYMONGOCRYPT_LIB=$(pwd)/libmongocrypt-all/windows-test/nocrypto/bin/mongocrypt.dll
$ python -c "import pymongocrypt; print(pymongocrypt.libmongocrypt_version())"
1.0.0

Linux:

$ # Set PYMONGOCRYPT_LIB for RHEL 6.2 x86_64:
$ export PYMONGOCRYPT_LIB=$(pwd)/libmongocrypt-all/rhel-62-64-bit/nocrypto/lib64/libmongocrypt.so
$ python -c "import pymongocrypt; print(pymongocrypt.libmongocrypt_version())"
1.0.0

Dependencies

PyMongoCrypt supports CPython 2.7, 3.4+, PyPy, and PyPy3.5+.

PyMongoCrypt requires cffi and cryptography.

PyMongoCrypt also requires libmongocrypt to be installed on your system. If libmongocrypt is not installed you will see an error like this:

>>> import pymongocrypt
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "pymongocrypt/__init__.py", line 15, in <module>
    from pymongocrypt.binding import libmongocrypt_version, lib
  File "pymongocrypt/binding.py", line 803, in <module>
    lib = ffi.dlopen(os.environ.get('PYMONGOCRYPT_LIB', 'mongocrypt'))
  File "/.../lib/python3.7/site-packages/cffi/api.py", line 146, in dlopen
    lib, function_cache = _make_ffi_library(self, name, flags)
  File "/.../lib/python3.7/site-packages/cffi/api.py", line 828, in _make_ffi_library
    backendlib = _load_backend_lib(backend, libname, flags)
  File "/.../lib/python3.7/site-packages/cffi/api.py", line 823, in _load_backend_lib
    raise OSError(msg)
OSError: ctypes.util.find_library() did not manage to locate a library called 'mongocrypt'

Use the PYMONGOCRYPT_LIB environment variable to load a locally installed libmongocrypt build without relying on platform specific library path environment variables, like LD_LIBRARY_PATH. For example:

$ export PYMONGOCRYPT_LIB='/path/to/libmongocrypt.so'
$ python -c "import pymongocrypt; print(pymongocrypt.libmongocrypt_version())"

Testing

The easiest way to run the tests is to run python setup.py test in the root of the distribution.
