Secure Reliable UDP

Project description

Secure Reliable UDP

This repository provides Secure Reliable Data Stream that works like TCP.
My purpose is enable users create P2P connection between clients in closed NAT.


  • Pure Python
  • Usage like normal socket object
  • Protocol similar to RUDP
  • UDP hole punching
  • high performance (8Mbps/s Up&Down)
  • ipv4/ipv6



pip3 install --user srudp


Prepare two independent PCs.

from srudp import SecureReliableSocket
from time import sleep, time
sock = SecureReliableSocket()
sock.connect(("<remote host 1>", 12345))
while not sock.is_closed:
    sock.sendall(b'hello ' + str(time()).encode())
print("closed", sock)

A side, send message hello once in a 3 sec.

from srudp import SecureReliableSocket
from time import time
sock = SecureReliableSocket()
sock.connect(("<remote host 2>", 12345))
while not sock.is_closed:
    data = sock.recv(1024)
    if not data:
    print(time(), data)
print("closed", sock)

Another side, receive the message and show immediately.

Note: Why make this?

These days, PC is located in a local environment protected by NAT. It is difficult to transfer data between two outsides. In order to solve this problem, connection is realized by UDP hole punching without using UPnP.

UDP is a socket protocol with minimum functions for connecting applications. Therefore, there is no connection state, data may not be reachable, spoofing the source is easy. This is why, you cannot substitute it as TCP.

With this program, you can treat it just like TCP without worrying about the above problems. In other words, it has a connection state, guarantees data reachability, and is difficult to forge.
