Apache libcloud - a unified interface into the cloud ==================================================== The goal of this project is to create a basic yet functional standard library into various cloud providers. Apache libcloud is an incubator project at the Apache Software Foundation, see <http://incubator.apache.org/libcloud> for more information. For API documentation and examples, see: <http://incubator.apache.org/libcloud/getting-started.html> Important Security Note ======================= Python's built-in SSL module does not do certificate validation. To address this, we've introduced the libcloud.security module with tunable parameters. View the entire guide at: <http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/LibcloudSSL> Enabling SSL Certificate Check ============================== import libcloud.security libcloud.security.VERIFY_SSL_CERT = True # optionally, add to CA_CERTS_PATH libcloud.security.CA_CERTS_PATH.append("/path/to/your/cacerts.txt") CA_CERTS_PATH contains common paths to CA bundle installations on the following platforms: * openssl on CentOS/Fedora * ca-certificates on Debian/Ubuntu/Arch/Gentoo * ca_root_nss on FreeBSD * curl-ca-bundle on Mac OS X Note for OS X Users =================== OS X root certificates are stored in the Keychain format, unlike the standard PEM format available on other *nix platforms. For this reason, it is not possible to include the standard OS X root certificates with CA_CERTS_PATH. Acquiring CA Certificates ========================= If the above packages are unavailable to you, and you don't wish to roll your own, the makers of cURL provides an excellent resource, generated from Mozilla: http://curl.haxx.se/docs/caextract.html Feedback ======== Please send feedback to the mailing list at <email@example.com>, or the JIRA at <https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LIBCLOUD>.
