Security module used to provide X509 authentication capabilities to the Azure IoT Hub device client and Azure IoT Hub Provisioning Service device client.
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. 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. This package (azure-iot-security-x509) provides x509 authentication capabilities.
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
