Mohawk is an alternate Python implementation of the Hawk HTTP authorization scheme.
Hawk lets two parties securely communicate with each other using messages signed by a shared key. It is based on HTTP MAC access authentication (which was based on parts of OAuth 1.0).
The Mohawk API is a little different from that of the Node library (i.e. the living Hawk spec). It was redesigned to be more intuitive to developers, less prone to security problems, and more Pythonic.
