Experimental OpenSSL wrapper for Python 3.6+ and SSLyze. Do NOT use for anything serious. This code has not been properly tested/reviewed and is absolutely not production ready.
Nassl can be installed directly via pip:
pip install nassl
If you want to setup a local environment where you can work on SSLyze, you will first need to install pipenv. Then, the environment can initialized using:
$ cd nassl $ pipenv install --dev $ pivenv shell
Nassl relies on a C extension to call into OpenSSL; you can compile everything using:
$ invoke build.all
Then, the tests can be run using:
$ invoke test
Classes implemented in Python are part of the
nassl namespace; they are designed to provide a simpler, higher-level
interface to perform SSL connections.
Classes implemented in C are part of the
nassl._nassl namespace; they try to stay as close as possible to OpenSSL's
API. In most cases, Python methods of such objects directly match the OpenSSL function with same name. For example the
_nassl.SSL.read() Python method matches OpenSSL's
These classes should be considered internal.
Why another SSL library?
I'm the author of SSLyze, an SSL scanner written in Python. Scanning SSL servers requires access to low-level SSL functions within the OpenSSL API, for example to test for things like insecure renegotiation or session resumption.
None of the existing OpenSSL wrappers for Python (including ssl, M2Crypto and pyOpenSSL) expose the APIs that I need for SSLyze, so I had to write my own wrapper.
