python-vipaccess is a free and open source software (FOSS) implementation of Symantec's VIP Access client. It is able to generate OATH URIs and their corresponding QR codes so any TOTP-generating application can be used as a VIP OTP token.

Right now, it only supports the bare minimum number of features of the VIP Access provisioning protocol to work, but I might add support for the other features at some point in the future.

You can see my original blog post here, in which I describe how I reverse-engineered the VIP Access application.


If you have pip installed on your system, you can install them with pip install image lxml oath PyCrypto qrcode requests.


Via pip (recommended)

pip install python-vipaccess


  1. Check out this repository by running git clone https://github.com/cyrozap/python-vipaccess.git
  2. Switch to the python-vipaccess directory by running cd python-vipaccess
  3. Install the vipaccess module
    • With pip: pip install .
    • Without pip: python setup.py install


Execute vipaccess (it should be in your PATH).
