passport-steam

Steam (OpenID) authentication strategy for Passport.

Passport-Steam

Passport strategy for authenticating with Steam using OpenID 2.0.

$ npm install --save passport-steam

The Steam authentication strategy authenticates users using a steam account, which is also an OpenID 2.0 identifier. The strategy requires a validate callback, which accepts this identifier and calls done providing a user. Additionally, options can be supplied to specify a return URL and realm.

passport.use(new SteamStrategy({
    returnURL: 'http://localhost:3000/auth/steam/return',
    realm: 'http://localhost:3000/',
    apiKey: 'your steam API key'
  },
  function(identifier, profile, done) {
    User.findByOpenID({ openId: identifier }, function (err, user) {
      return done(err, user);
    });
  }
));

A Steam API key can be obtained at http://steamcommunity.com/dev/apikey. However if you wish not to use an API key, you can include profile: false into the SteamStrategy object, which will disable the fetching of user data.

Use passport.authenticate(), specifying the 'steam' strategy, to authenticate requests.

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

app.get('/auth/steam',
  passport.authenticate('steam'),
  function(req, res) {
    // The request will be redirected to Steam for authentication, so 
    // this function will not be called. 
  });
 
app.get('/auth/steam/return',
  passport.authenticate('steam', { failureRedirect: '/login' }),
  function(req, res) {
    // Successful authentication, redirect home. 
    res.redirect('/');
  });
