Convenience wrapper for the PyXMLSec library

Project description

A XML Signature (XMLDSig) is a syntax to provide digital signatures of an XML file. Support for these signatures is provided by, for instance, the libxmlsec C library. A Python wrapper for this library is available as pyXMLSec. However, this wrapper only provides access to the low-level API functions and does not achieve a Pythonic API.

This xmldsig module is a convenience wrapper for pyXMLSec. It has been built initially to be used for signing and validating messages from the Dutch iDEAL payment processing system, but has been extended for general use. The module is inspired by the code examples of pyXMLSec and the module made by Philippe Lagadec. However, his module lacks the ability to specify the key format, which is required to load certificates as named keys. This module has been made to mimic large parts of Lagadec’s API to ensure an easy transition.
