node-http-signature

# node-http-signature node-http-signature is a node.js library that has client and server components for Joyent's [HTTP Signature Scheme](/node_modules/http-signature/http_signing.html). ## Usage Note the example below signs a request with the same key/cert used to start an HTTP server. This is almost certainly not what you actually want, but is just used to illustrate the API calls; you will need to provide your own key management in addition to this library. ### Client ```js var fs = require('fs'); var https = require('https'); var httpSignature = require('http-signature'); var key = fs.readFileSync('./key.pem', 'ascii'); var options = { host: 'localhost', port: 8443, path: '/', method: 'GET', headers: {} }; // Adds a 'Date' header in, signs it, and adds the // 'Authorization' header in. var req = https.request(options, function(res) { console.log(res.statusCode); }); httpSignature.sign(req, { key: key, keyId: './cert.pem' }); req.end(); ``` ### Server ```js var fs = require('fs'); var https = require('https'); var httpSignature = require('http-signature'); var options = { key: fs.readFileSync('./key.pem'), cert: fs.readFileSync('./cert.pem') }; https.createServer(options, function (req, res) { var rc = 200; var parsed = httpSignature.parseRequest(req); var pub = fs.readFileSync(parsed.keyId, 'ascii'); if (!httpSignature.verifySignature(parsed, pub)) rc = 401; res.writeHead(rc); res.end(); }).listen(8443); ``` ## Installation npm install http-signature ## License MIT. ## Bugs See .
