I'm trying to establish a secure socket connection in Python, and i'm having a hard time with the SSL bit of it. I've found some code examples of how to establish a connection with SSL, but they all involve key files. The server i'm trying to connect with doesn't need to receive any keys or certificates. My question is how do I essentially wrap a python socket connection with SSL. I know for a fact that the cipher i'm suppose to use is
ADH-AES256-SHA, and the protocol is
TLSv1. This is what i've been trying:
import socket import ssl # SET VARIABLES packet, reply = "<packet>SOME_DATA</packet>", "" HOST, PORT = 'XX.XX.XX.XX', 4434 # CREATE SOCKET sock = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM) sock.settimeout(10) # WRAP SOCKET ??? ssl.wrap_socket(sock, ssl_version="TLSv1", ciphers="ADH-AES256-SHA") # CONNECT AND PRINT REPLY sock.connect((HOST, PORT)) sock.send(packet) print sock.recv(1280) # CLOSE SOCKET CONNECTION sock.close()
When I run this code, I don't get any errors, but I get a blank response. When trying to debug this code in the command line, by typing in
python in the terminal and pasting in code line by line, I get what i'm assuming is a status code when running
sock.send(packet). The integer response I get is
26. If anyone knows what this means, or can help in anyway it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
