splunksecrets - Encrypt / Decrypt Splunk encrypted passwords

## Project description

splunksecrets is a tool for working with Splunk secrets offline. It currently supports encryption and decryption of passwords, but in the future will support offline recursive conversion of a Splunk installation from one splunk.secret file to another (e.g. for synchronizing splunk.secret across your entire distributed infrastructure).

## Installation

splunksecrets can be installed using pip3:

pip3 install splunksecrets


Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, can be installed directly from github:

pip3 install git+https://github.com/HurricaneLabs/splunksecrets.git


## Usage

usage: splunksecrets [-h] [--splunk-secret SPLUNK_SECRET]
[--splunk-secret-text SPLUNK_SECRET_TEXT] [-D] [--new]

optional arguments:
-h, --help            show this help message and exit
--splunk-secret SPLUNK_SECRET
--splunk-secret-text SPLUNK_SECRET_TEXT
-D, --decrypt
-H, --hash-passwd
--new
--nosalt

• Use --new when encrypting/decrypting Splunk 7.2 secrets (indicated by $7$)

• Use --nosalt when encrypting/decrypting Splunk pre-7.2 secrets that are not hashed

• Use --splunk-secret to specify a path to splunk.secret, or use the SPLUNK_SECRET environment variable

• Use --splunk-secret-text to specify splunk.secret contents on the command line, or use the SPLUNK_SECRET_TEXT environment variable

• Use --password to specify password to be encrypted/decrypted on the command line, or use the PASSWORD environment variable

• NOTE: when doing so, on *nix or other platforms running bash-like shells, you must escape the $in passwords, like so: splunksecrets --splunk-secret-text ... --password \$1\$.....  • Use --hash-password to generate a hash for$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/passwd

## Encryption Schemes

### Splunk passwd hashes

Splunk password hashes are not, strictly speaking, encrypted. They’re hashed using the standard Unix crypt function. The $6$ indicates that SHA-512 hashing algorithm is used. Details on SHA-crypt can be found here.

### Splunk pre-7.2

Splunk prior to 7.2 used RC4 encryption for secrets, indicated in configuration files by $1$ in the encrypted password. The plaintext password is XOR’ed with a static salt (DEFAULTSA) and then RC4 encrypted using the first 16-bytes of splunk.secret as the key. The resulting ciphertext is base64-encoded and prepended with $1$ to produce the encrypted password seen in the configuration files.

### Splunk 7.2

Starting in Splunk 7.2, AES256-GCM is used for encryption of secrets, indicated in configuration files by $7$ in the encrypted password. The PBKDF2 algorithm is used to derive an encryption key from all 254 bytes of splunk.secret (the newline character is stripped from the end of the file), using a static salt of disk-encryption and a single iteration. This 256-bit key is then used as the encryption key for AES256-GCM, with a 16-byte randomly generated initialization vector. The encryption produces both the ciphertext as well as a “tag” that is used as part of integrity verification. The iv, ciphertext, and tag (in that order) are concatenated, base64-encoded, and prepended with $7$ to produce the encrypted password seen in the configuration files.

## Known Issues

• If the splunk secret and an encrypted password don’t match, one of two things will happen - either you’ll get gibberish output, or a Python traceback. At some point, we’ll hopefully have better error checking for this.

## Version History

### Version 0.5.0 (2020-06-23)

• Add support for passing a path to splunk.secret, the splunk.secret contents, and the password/password hash via environment variables (thanks hanswurscht)

### Version 0.4.3 (2020-02-17)

• Correct an issue when splunk secret is too long. Splunk handles this by truncating splunk.secret to 254 bytes, so we now do the same (thanks nbertram)
• Added error checking in case, somehow, splunk secret is too short.

### Version 0.4.1 (2019-09-11)

• Fix an issue in Python 3 when using --splunk-secret-text (thanks Joeboyc2)

### Version 0.3.1 (2019-02-06)

• Fix bug when a character in the password was the same as the salt character

### Version 0.2.1 (2018-10-27)

• Cosmetic release to update metadata on PyPI

### Version 0.2.0 (2018-10-24)

• Add support for Splunk 7.2

### Version 0.1.0 (2018-10-08)

• Initial release
• Support Splunk < 7.2
