Unique Browser ID

This package creates a unique ID for every browser, which you can use to bind JWTs to a clients browser. This helps to prevent token thiefs 🔒.

Note: This project is still under developement. Many features are following in future.

Installation and Usage

You can install this package using npm:

npm install uniquebrowserid

Example usage:

import UID from 'uniquebrowserid';
 
const myid = new UID().completeID();

Usage with JSON Web Tokens

Client side:

import UID from 'uniquebrowserid';
 
const oneTimeID = new UID().generateOneTimeID("randomStringKey");

This will generate a TOTP key, which will be hashed with the unique ID of the browser. The generated ID will be valid for 30 seconds.

Server side:

import UID from 'uniquebrowserid';
 
if ( new UID().checkOneTimeID("OneTimeID", "original ID", "randomStringKey") ){
    //one time ID is valid
};

This will check the send ID and returns a boolean value.
