How to access x509 objects in Splunk 8 / Python 3?

Hi,

I am trying to port an app that needs access to x509 details to python 3. Splunk does not ship OpenSSL for python3, only python2 and the new way seems to be using cryptography.

But that is also not shipped with Splunk 8. On the other hand. Looking at the modules shipped with Python 3 in Splunk 8 I see that they do reference cryptography as a dependency (pyopenssl). Looks a bit weird to me.

Theoretically I could just dump cryptography in my app directory. But that also would include a shared object file which seems to be counterproductive when wanting to publish the module outside my organization.

Any ideas on how to resolve this?

thx
