Native Python interface for strongSwan's VICI protocol

Project description


The strongSwan VICI protocol allows external applications to monitor, configure and control the IKE daemon charon. This Python package provides a native client side implementation of the VICI protocol, well suited to script automated tasks in a reliable way.

Example Usage

>>> import vici
>>> s = vici.Session()
>>> s.version()
OrderedDict([('daemon', b'charon'), ('version', b'5.4.0'),
('sysname', b'Linux'), ('release', b'3.13.0-27-generic'), ('machine', b'x86_64')])
>>> s.load_pool({"p1": {"addrs": ""}})
OrderedDict([('success', b'yes')])
>>> s.get_pools()
OrderedDict([('p1', OrderedDict([('base', b''), ('size', b'254'),
('online', b'0'), ('offline', b'0')]))])
