Service Identity Verification for pyOpenSSL¶
Release v17.0.0 (What’s new?).
Use this package if:
- you use pyOpenSSL and don’t want to be MITMed or
- if you want to verify that a PyCA cryptography certificate is valid for a certain hostname.
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.
service_identity implements RFC 6125 fully and plans to add other relevant RFCs too.
