    kth-node-session Build Status

    A Node.js module for setting up session middleware for Express.js apps.

    Enforces certain defaults that should improve security related to sessions.

    Available session options: https://www.npmjs.com/package/express-session

    Available Redis options: https://www.npmjs.com/package/connect-redis

    Usage

    const express = require('express')
    const session = require('kth-node-session')
    
    const app = express()
    
    const options = {
      // set to true to enable session storage in RedisStore
      // default is to use MemoryStore
      useRedis: false,
    
      // this is used as redis prefix and session cookie name
      // must be set here or as individual settings for redis (prefix) and session (name)
      key: 'node-app.sid',
    
      // https://www.npmjs.com/package/connect-redis
      redisOptions: {
        // ...
      },
    
      // https://www.npmjs.com/package/express-session
      sessionOptions: {
        // secret must be set!
        secret: 'my-secret-string',
    
        // this should not be set when enabling Redis
        // or if using the default value
        store: null,
      },
    }
    
    app.use(session(options))

    Default cookie settings

    The cookie has the following defult settings but each value can be overridden if needed:

    cookie: {
      secure: true,
      httpOnly: true,
      sameSite: 'Lax',
      path: '/'
    },

    The path attribute is preferably set to a more specific path so the cookie only is available where it´s needed.
