    node-http-signature

    node-http-signature is a node.js library that has client and server components for Joyent's HTTP Signature Scheme.

    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

    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',
      keyPassphrase: 'secret' // (optional)
    });
    
    req.end();

    Server

    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);
