This package (azure-iot-provisioning-device-http) provides the HTTP transports that can be used to communicate with the Azure IoT Hub Device Provisioning Service. Please note that the HTTP transport supports both X509 and TPM authentication.
There are at least 3 different packages involved when writing code to take advantage of the Azure IoT Hub Device Provisioning Service:
- The "client" package that will be used to create a provisioning client. This is the azure-iot-provisioning-device package.
- the "transport" package that will decide which protocol will be used to communicate with the provisioning service. One of azure-iot-provisioning-device-amqp, azure-iot-provisioning-device-mqtt, or azure-iot-provisioning-device-http (this package). Please note that X509 authentication is supported with all protocols but TPM authentication is supported only with AMQP and HTTP.
- The "security client" package that will be used to interface with whatever type of security (x509 or TPM) is used to authenticate the device.
npm install --save azure-iot-provisioning-device npm install --save azure-iot-provisioning-device-amqp # Or -mqtt or -http npm install --save azure-iot-security-x509 # Or -tpm
