A crtauth authentication plugin for Python Requests.

Project Description


A plugin to support [crtauth authentication]( in [Python Requests](


requests-crtauth works as an authentication plugin for Python Requests. See the [authentication documentation]( for more details. The following arguments may be provided to a new instance of HttpCrtAuth: ` username: User to authenticate as. Defaults to $USER. private_key: A PEM encoded private key string. Overrides signer. signer: A crtauth SigningPlug instance. Defaults to using the SSH agent (AgentSigner). version: Integer version of the crtauth protocol. Defaults to version 1. `

Here’s an example. `python In [1]: import requests, requests_crtauth, json, logging In [2]: logging.basicConfig(level=logging.DEBUG) In [3]: session = requests.Session() # HttpCrtAuth() will default to authenticating with your $USER env variable and a key from your SSH agent. # To specify an explicit key: requests_crtauth.HttpCrtAuth(username='negz', private_key='key data as a string') In [4]: session.auth = requests_crtauth.HttpCrtAuth() In [5]: data = json.dumps({'comment': 'I\'m a comment!'}) In [6]: headers = {'content-type': 'application/json; charset=utf-8'} In [7]: response = session.put('', data=data, headers=headers) INFO:requests.packages.urllib3.connectionpool:Starting new HTTPS connection (1): DEBUG:requests.packages.urllib3.connectionpool:"PUT /v1/things/yomaris HTTP/1.1" 401 12 DEBUG:root:Sending challenge request DEBUG:requests.packages.urllib3.connectionpool:"HEAD /_auth HTTP/1.1" 200 0 DEBUG:root:Sending response to challenge REDACTED DEBUG:requests.packages.urllib3.connectionpool:"HEAD /_auth HTTP/1.1" 200 0 DEBUG:root:Stored CHAP token REDACTED DEBUG:root:Using newly stored CHAP token.
