Integration of boto and keyring

Project description

Note: My hope is that this package will become redundant by integrating something very similar into boto itself.

Boto is awesome for controlling AWS. Unfortunately, there are times when specifying credentials is awkward. Typically, one has to either:

  • includint the AWS password (aws_secret_access_key) in a clear text dot file, which is insecure, or
  • setting an environment variable with the password, which is inconvenient and insecure on multi-user systems.

It would be better to use a secure keyring to store the password. zc.botokeyring provides exactlly that capability. To use it, set aws_access_key_id in the Credentials section of your boto configuration filem as usual, and instead of setting aws_secret_access_key, set keyring to the name of a keyring containing the password:

[Credentials]
aws_access_key_id = 1234
keyring = test
