tokenhandler

tokenhandler.py is a simple script to login and acquire a token used for subsequent REST API calls to a StoredSafe instance.

It can also be used to keep a token alive, by scheduling a tokenhandler.py check regularly (e.g. via cron(1)).

The script is written in Python v3 and has been tested on macOS Sierra and on Linux (any fairly recent version of Ubuntu or Red Hat should work fine).

It is designed for version 1.0 of StoredSafes REST-Like API.

Installation instructions

This script requires Python v3 and some libraries. All of the required libraries are normally installed by default.

It has been developed on Linux using Python 3.6, modified and tested using Python v3.7.4 on macOS Mojave 10.14.5.

Syntax

$ tokenhandler.py --help
usage: tokenhandler.py [-h] [-f FILE] [-q] [-c TRUSTED_CA]
                       {login,check,logout} ...

Aquire and maintain StoredSafe tokens

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -f FILE, --file FILE  File where StoredSafe token is/should be stored
                        (defaults to ~/.storedsafe-client.rc)
  -q, --quiet           Silence all output except errors and requests for
                        input
  -c TRUSTED_CA, --trusted-ca TRUSTED_CA
                        File or directory containing certificates of trusted
                        CAs

action:
  {login,check,logout}  What to do
    login               Login to StoredSafe and acquire token
    check               Renew token if still valid
    logout              Logout from StoredSafe and disable token

Optional arguments can be:

--file FILE, -f FILE

Store token and relevant information in FILE (Defaults to ~/.storedsafe-client.rc)

--quiet, -q

Silence all output except errors and requests for input

--trusted-ca TRUSTED_CA, -c TRUSTED_CA

File or directory containing certificates of trusted CAs

And action can be any of:

login

Login to the StoredSafe appliance, acquire a token and store all relevant information in ~/.storedsafe-client.rc.

logout

Logout from the StoredSafe appliance and destroy the acquired token. Zeroes out the token in ~/.storedsafe-client.rc.

check

Renews the lifetime of the acquired token and ensures connectivity to the StoredSafe appliance. Can be scheduled with cron(1).

Login

When action is login the following optional arguments might be used.

--username USERNAME, -u USERNAME

StoredSafe username.

--hostname HOSTNAME, -h HOSTNAME

hostname of StoredSafe server.

--apikey APIKEY, -a APIKEY

API-key to use.

Environment variables

When action is login the following optional environment variables might be used.

$ export STOREDSAFE_USER="sven"

StoredSafe username.

$ export STOREDSAFE_HOST="safe.domain.cc"

hostname of StoredSafe server.

$ export STOREDSAFE_APIKEY="MyAPIKey"

API-key to use.

$ export STOREDSAFE_PASS="<super-secret-passphrase>"

Passphrase for login.

$ export STOREDSAFE_OTP="<an-yubikey-otp>"

OTP (or TOTP) to be used for login.

Usage

Login to the StoredSafe appliance. This will acquire a valid token which can be used for subsequent REST API calls to StoredSafe.

$ tokenhandler.py login
Please enter StoredSafe username: sven
Please enter StoredSafe hostname: safe.domain.cc
Please enter StoredSafe apikey: AnAPIKey
StoredSafe password: <secret password entered>
Enter OTP (Yubikey or TOTP): <OTP or TOTP>
Login successful.

If a previous login has been done (the ~/.storedsafe-client.rc exists), information will be used from it to suggest values.

$ tokenhandler.py login
StoredSafe password: <secret password entered>
Enter OTP (Yubikey or TOTP): <OTP or TOTP>
Login successful.

Alternative using command line options

Instead of getting prompted for username, hostname and API-key, the information can be provided with the optional arguments valid when the action is login.

$ tokenhandler.py login --username sven --hostname safe.domain.cc --apikey MyAPIKey
StoredSafe password:
Enter OTP (Yubikey or TOTP): <OTP or TOTP>
Login successful.

Alternative using environment variables

A second alternative, would be to use environment variables to supply the necessary information.

$ STOREDSAFE_USER="sven" STOREDSAFE_HOST="safe.domain.cc" STOREDSAFE_APIKEY="MyAPIKey" STOREDSAFE_PASS="<secret password>" STOREDSAFE_OTP="875124" tokenhandler.py login
Login successful.

Logout

Logout and destroy the acquired token.

$ tokenhandler.py logout
Logout successful.

Check token

Check validity of the token, connectivity to the StoredSafe appliance and renew lifetime of the acquired token.

$ tokenhandler.py check
StoredSafe token still valid.

Limitations / Known issues

Script tries to ensure fairly strict permissions on the actual rc-file and the directory where it is stored. If it finds any of those insufficient, it will print an error message and exit.

~/.storedsafe-client.rc is expected to be only readable and writeable by it's owner.

The directory to hold the RC file (when using the --file option) is expected to be only readable and writeable by it's owner and possibly have read permissions for the users group.

Legacy

The old, python2, client is available in the python2 directory.

Author

The refactored tokenhandler for python3 was completely re-written from scratch by Fredrik Eriksson, CERT-SE. Many thanks and mad shouts to him for his great work.
