How to make presigned urls in python without AWS libs?
I am trying to generate my own presigned url for DO spaces and has started from Amazons example here:
but without luck and I am now asking ou for help.
This presigned url
is generated by the web interface and works for me. I can download the png with curl.
I am then trying this:
import sys, os, base64, datetime, hashlib, hmac, urllib import requests # pip install requests # ************* REQUEST VALUES ************* method = 'GET' service = 's3' host = 'fra1.digitaloceanspaces.com' region = 'fra1' endpoint = 'https://fra1.digitaloceanspaces.com' spacename = "cpi-germany" #Or bucket objectname = "cpi-green-transparent-700x700.png" # Key derivation functions. See: # http://docs.aws.amazon.com/general/latest/gr/signature-v4-examples.html#signature-v4-examples-python def sign(key, msg): return hmac.new(key, msg.encode('utf-8'), hashlib.sha256).digest() def getSignatureKey(key, dateStamp, regionName, serviceName): kDate = sign(('AWS4' + key).encode('utf-8'), dateStamp) kRegion = sign(kDate, regionName) kService = sign(kRegion, serviceName) kSigning = sign(kService, 'aws4_request') return kSigning # Read AWS access key from env. variables or configuration file. Best practice is NOT # to embed credentials in code. access_key = os.environ.get('AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID') secret_key = os.environ.get('AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY') if access_key is None or secret_key is None: print('No access key is available.') sys.exit() # Create a date for headers and the credential string t = datetime.datetime.utcnow() amz_date = t.strftime('%Y%m%dT%H%M%SZ') # Format date as YYYYMMDD'T'HHMMSS'Z' datestamp = t.strftime('%Y%m%d') # Date w/o time, used in credential scope # ************* TASK 1: CREATE A CANONICAL REQUEST ************* # http://docs.aws.amazon.com/general/latest/gr/sigv4-create-canonical-request.html # Because almost all information is being passed in the query string, # the order of these steps is slightly different than examples that # use an authorization header. # Step 1: Define the verb (GET, POST, etc.)--already done. # Step 2: Create canonical URI--the part of the URI from domain to query # string (use '/' if no path) canonical_uri = '/'+spacename+'/'+objectname # Step 3: Create the canonical headers and signed headers. Header names # must be trimmed and lowercase, and sorted in code point order from # low to high. Note trailing \n in canonical_headers. # signed_headers is the list of headers that are being included # as part of the signing process. For requests that use query strings, # only "host" is included in the signed headers. canonical_headers = 'host:' + host + '\n' signed_headers = 'host' # Match the algorithm to the hashing algorithm you use, either SHA-1 or # SHA-256 (recommended) algorithm = 'AWS4-HMAC-SHA256' credential_scope = datestamp + '/' + region + '/' + service + '/' + 'aws4_request' # Step 4: Create the canonical query string. In this example, request # parameters are in the query string. Query string values must # be URL-encoded (space=%20). The parameters must be sorted by name. # use urllib.parse.quote_plus() if using Python 3 canonical_querystring = '' canonical_querystring += 'X-Amz-Algorithm=AWS4-HMAC-SHA256' canonical_querystring += '&X-Amz-Credential=' + urllib.quote_plus(access_key + '/' + credential_scope) canonical_querystring += '&X-Amz-Date=' + amz_date canonical_querystring += '&X-Amz-Expires=30' canonical_querystring += '&X-Amz-SignedHeaders=' + signed_headers # Step 5: Create payload hash.

But it # must exist as a header in the request. request_url = endpoint + canonical_uri + "?" + canonical_querystring print request_url; print('\nBEGIN REQUEST++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++') print('Request URL = ' + request_url) r = requests.get(request_url) print('\nRESPONSE++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++') print('Response code: %d\n' % r.status_code) print(r.text)
but get the following output

When I compare the url I generate with this python script with the one I got from the DO webinterface, they are almost identical.
The access key is different, obviously I assume, and the signature is different.
Now, I am basically doing whatever the Amazon example does, so I am a bit out of ideas.
Can anyone spot my obvious error or does anyone have a snippet that works?
P.S.: The python script is only used to get to understand the process, as I need to use Dart for production. As far as I can tell, there are no snippets on making presigned urls for dart, so I feel a bit on my own here. If anybody has a snippet for dart that I would be happy to see it.
