service_identity 14.0.0

Service identity verification for pyOpenSSL.

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.


service_identity is currently maintained by Hynek Schlawack.

The development is kindly supported by Variomedia AG.
