Service Identity Verification for pyOpenSSL

Release v1.0.0 (What’s new?).

TL;DR: Use this package if you use pyOpenSSL and don’t want to be MITMed.

service_identity aspires to give you all the tools you need for verifying whether a certificate is valid for the intended purposes.

In the simplest case, this means host name verification. However, service_identity implements RFC 6125 fully and plans to add other relevant RFCs too.

service_identity’s documentation lives at Read the Docs, the code on GitHub.
