salt-verifier - The salt verifier

Project description

A library that provides both a client and server that can be used to verify a salt minion’s public key before it is accepted by the master. The server is meant to run on the minion and listen on port 4533. In order to verify the public key of the minion, the client generates random challenge messages that the minion must sign.

Installation

$ pip install salt-verifier

Usage

Run the server:

$ salt-verifier-server

It will load the private key of the current minion from /etc/salt/pki/minion/minion.pem.

From the master, verify the minion by using the client library like so:

from saltverifier.client import is_valid_server_public_key

if is_valid_server_public_key('tcp://minion-ip:4533', 'SOME_PUBLIC_KEY_STR'):
    do-something-when-the-public-is-valid
else:
    do-something-when-the-public-is-invalid
