Negotiate authentication for the requests HTTP client library

Project description

# requests-negotiate

An implementation of HTTP Negotiate authentication ([RFC 4559]( for [requests](

Negotiate authentication is commonly used to provide Kerberos authentication through GSSAPI.

## Usage

Here’s a trivial example:

import requests import requests_negotiate

auth = requests_negotiate.HTTPNegotiateAuth() response = requests.get(‘’, auth=auth)

You’ll need a valid Kerberos ticket — acquired using e.g. kinit — for this to work.

### Options

You can instantiate an HTTPNegotiateAuth with the following optional parameters:

  • service — A Kerberos principal is generally composed of a service name (e.g. ‘HTTP’) and a hostname, separated by a slash (‘/’). This lets you override the default service of 'HTTP'.
  • service_name — Overrides the full service name (e.g. 'HTTP/')
  • negotiate_client_name — Explicitly specify which client principal to authenticate as. Particularly useful when you’re using a credential cache collection.
  • preempt — Attempt Negotiate authentication before it is offered.
