Python library and tests for the YubiHSM 2. This library is compatible with both Python 2 and 3.
This library communicates with the YubiHSM 2 connector daemon, which must already be running. It can also communicate directly with the YubiHSM 2 via USB.

$ pip install yubihsm[http,usb]
From a source .tar.gz:
$ pip install yubihsm-<version>.tar.gz[http,usb]
Omitting a tag from the brackets will install the library without support for that backend, and will avoid installing unneeded dependencies.
Quick reference commands:
from yubihsm import YubiHsm from yubihsm.defs import CAPABILITY, ALGORITHM from yubihsm.objects import AsymmetricKey # Connect to the YubiHSM via the connector using the default password: hsm = YubiHsm.connect('http://localhost:12345') session = hsm.create_session_derived(1, 'password') # Generate a private key on the YubiHSM for creating signatures: key = AsymmetricKey.generate( # Generate a new key object in the YubiHSM. session, # Secure YubiHsm session to use. 0, # Object ID, 0 to get one assigned. 'My key', # Label for the object. 1, # Domain(s) for the object. CAPABILITY.SIGN_ECDSA, # Capabilities for the object. ALGORITHM.EC_P256 # Algorithm for the key. ) # pub_key is a cryptography.io ec.PublicKey, see https://cryptography.io pub_key = key.get_public_key() # Write the public key to a file: with open('public_key.pem', 'w') as f: f.write(pub_key.public_bytes( encoding=serialization.Encoding.PEM, format=serialization.PublicFormat.SubjectPublicKeyInfo )) # Sign some data: signature = key.sign_ecdsa(b'Hello world!') # Create a signature. # Clean up session.close() hsm.close()
For development of the library, we recommend using
pipenv. To set up the dev
environment, run this command in the root directory of the repository:
$ pipenv install --dev
Running the tests require a YubiHSM2 to run against, with the default authentication key set.
|The YubiHSM under test will be factory reset by the tests!|
$ pipenv run test
You can specify a specific module or test to run by using the -s flag:
$ pipenv run test -s test.device.test_ec
By default the tests will connect to a yubihsm-connector running with the
default settings on http://localhost:12345. To change this, use the
$ BACKEND="yhusb://" pipenv run python setup.py test
Access to the device requires proper permissions, so either use sudo or setup a udev rule.
Generating HTML documentation
To build the HTML documentation, run:
$ pipenv run docs
The resulting output will be in docs/_build/html/.
Source releases for distribution
Build a source release:
$ pipenv run python setup.py sdist
The resulting .tar.gz will be created in
