xml rpc library for sending signed data

Project description

signed_xmlrpc - Send signed XML RPC Requests

signed_xmlrpc is a python library send signed xml rpc requests.

This library can be used in cyber defense exercises when communication with a compromised server and using credentials like usernames and passwords is not possible, because an attacker can use those to compromise more services and servers.

:warning: do not use this library in proiduction environments!


pip install signed_xmlrpc

Create Key Pair

At this time, the ecdsa library ( is used to handle signature verification.

from ecdsa import SigningKey
sk = SigningKey.generate()

# private_key

# public_key

Example Server

import base64

from ecdsa import VerifyingKey
from signed_xmlrpc.server import SignedXMLRPCServer, SignedRequestHandler

public_key = b'dmTk8IGtxQBC4lPuk9tXUIJqbiz4G01qLEzmt5Fmh9AkpqOWwcSyyVeDczrhGWe7'

# if the signature is not required, the standard python xmlrpc library can be used as client
SignedRequestHandler.REQUIRE_SIGNATURE = True

    ('', 8081)

Example Client

import base64
from ecdsa import SigningKey
from signed_xmlrpc.client import SigningTransport
import xmlrpc

private_key = b'BxbHQpNKpwKmYOs1RDSMg1vkIYsTTP3o'

server = xmlrpc.client.ServerProxy(
