Project description

u2flib-host
=========

Provides library functionality for communicating with a U2F device over USB.

Two executables are provided, u2f-enroll and u2f-sign, which support the enroll
and sign commands of U2F v0, as well as v2, as defined in the 2014-02-09
draft specification, from: http://fidoalliance.org/specifications/download

==License==
This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify
it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or
(at your option) any later version.

This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the
GNU General Public License for more details.

==Installation==

u2flib-host is installable by running the following command:

$ python setup.py install

Under Linux you will need to add a Udev rule to be able to access the U2F
device, or run as root. For example, the Udev rule may contain the following:

# For Udev 188 and later
# /etc/udev/rules.d/70-gnubby.rules

ACTION!="add|change", GOTO="gnubby_end"

ATTRS{idVendor}=="1050", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0211", \
ENV{ID_SECURITY_TOKEN}="1"

LABEL="gnubby_end"


# For older Udev versions
# /etc/udev/rules.d/70-gnubby.rules

ACTION=="add|change", SUBSYSTEM=="usb", \
ATTRS{idVendor}=="1050", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0211", \
TEST=="/var/run/ConsoleKit/database", \
RUN+="udev-acl --action=$env{ACTION} --device=$env{DEVNAME}"

==Dependencies==

u2flib-host requires a PyUSB compatible backend, such as libusb.

The soft U2F device implementation requires M2Crypto.

==Examples==

===Library use===

from u2flib_host import winusb

#Enumerate available devices
devices = winusb.list_devices()

for device in devices:
#The with block ensures that the device is opened and closed.
with device as dev:
#Send a command to the device:
dev.call(cmd, data)

===Executable use===

The examples below use the soft U2F device to enroll and sign against the
u2f_server example server from the python-u2flib-server project. See that
project for more details.
The enroll step will create a new U2F key pair and store the credential in the
soft_device.json file. The sign step will use this credential to sign a
challenge given by the server.

====Enroll====
Enroll takes a registration request as input, registering the attached device
and returns the registration response as output.

$ u2f-enroll -s soft_device.json http://localhost:8081
Enter enrollment JSON data...
