requests-auth-aws-sigv4

Use AWS signature version 4 Authentication with the python requests module

This package provides an authentication class that can be used with the popular requests package to add the AWS Signature Version 4 authentication information.

The signing code is inspired by the python example provided by AWS.

This package should support any/all AWS API's, including API Gateway API's (execute-api), Elasticsearch clusters, and others. AWS Credentials may be pulled from the environment in an easy and familiar way. The signature is added as a header to the request.

Installation

pip install requests-auth-aws-sigv4

Usage

import requests
from requests_auth_aws_sigv4 import AWSSigV4

r = requests.request('POST', 'https://sts.us-east-1.amazonaws.com', 
    data=dict(Version='2011-06-15', Action='GetCallerIdentity'), 
    auth=AWSSigV4('sts'))
print(r.text)

If boto3 is available, it will attempt to use credentials that have been configured for the AWS CLI or SDK's, as documented in Boto3 User Guide: Credentials. Otherwise, if boto3 is not available, credentials must be provided using either environment variables or parameters.

Example using environment variables

Environment variable names are the same as documented for AWS CLI and SDK's.

export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=MYACCESSKEY
export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=THISISSECRET
export AWS_SESSION_TOKEN=THISISWHERETHESUPERLONGTOKENGOES
import requests
from requests_auth_aws_sigv4 import AWSSigV4

aws_auth = AWSSigV4('ec2') # If not provided, check for AWS Credentials from Environment Variables

r = requests.request('GET', 'https://ec2.us-east-1.amazonaws.com?Version=2016-11-15&Action=DescribeRegions',
    auth=aws_auth)
print(r.text)
Example using parameters

Passing credentials as parameters overrides all other possible sources.

import requests
from requests_auth_aws_sigv4 import AWSSigV4

aws_auth = AWSSigV4('ec2',
    aws_access_key_id=ACCESS_KEY,
    aws_secret_access_key=SECRET_KEY,
    aws_session_token=SESSION_TOKEN,
)

r = requests.request('GET', 'https://ec2.us-east-1.amazonaws.com?Version=2016-11-15&Action=DescribeRegions',
    auth=aws_auth)
print(r.text)

Usage with Elasticsearch Client (elasticsearch-py)

from elasticsearch import Elasticsearch, RequestsHttpConnection
from requests_auth_aws_sigv4 import AWSSigV4

es_host = 'search-service-foobar.us-east-1.es.amazonaws.com'
aws_auth = AWSSigV4('es')

# use the requests connection_class and pass in our custom auth class
es_client = Elasticsearch(host=es_host,
                          port=80,
                          connection_class=RequestsHttpConnection,
                          http_auth=aws_auth)
es_client.info()

Debug Logging

All log messages are at the module level.

import logging
logging.basicConfig() # Setup basic logging to stdout
log = logging.getLogger('requests_auth_aws_sigv4')
log.setLevel(logging.DEBUG)

Command Line Usage

The module can be run from the command line in a way that is similar to how cURL works.

Temporary Security Credentials

Credentials issued from AWS STS to grant temporary access can be used normally. Set the token by passing the aws_session_token parameter, setting the AWS_SESSION_TOKEN environment variable, or configure the credential for boto3 as normal.

Using boto3 (or botocore) for AWS Credentials

The packages boto3 and botocore are not requirements to use this module.
As mentioned above, if boto3 is available, a boto3.Session will be created to attempt to get credentials and configure the default region. This will happen automatically if credentials are not provided as parameters.
