$ cnpm install selfsigned 
SYNC missed versions from official npm registry.

Generate a self signed x509 certificate from node.js.

Build Status

Install

  npm install selfsigned

Usage

var selfsigned = require('selfsigned');
var attrs = [{ name: 'commonName', value: 'contoso.com' }];
var pems = selfsigned.generate(attrs, { days: 365 });
console.log(pems)

Async

selfsigned.generate(attrs, { days: 365 }, function (err, pems) {
  console.log(pems)
});

Will return the following like this:

Attributes

for attributes, please refer to: https://github.com/digitalbazaar/forge/blob/0.7.5/lib/x509.js#L129

Options

var pems = selfsigned.generate(null, {
  keySize: 2048, // the size for the private key in bits (default: 1024)
  days: 30, // how long till expiry of the signed certificate (default: 365)
  algorithm: 'sha256', // sign the certificate with specified algorithm (default: 'sha1')
  extensions: [{ name: 'basicConstraints', cA: true }], // certificate extensions array
  pkcs7: true, // include PKCS#7 as part of the output (default: false)
  clientCertificate: true, // generate client cert signed by the original key (default: false)
  clientCertificateCN: 'jdoe' // client certificate's common name (default: 'John Doe jdoe123')
});

You can avoid key pair generation specifying your own keys ({ keyPair: { publicKey: '-----BEGIN PUBLIC KEY-----...', privateKey: '-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----...' })

Generate Client Certificates

If you are in an environment where servers require client certificates, you can generate client keys signed by the original (server) key.

var pems = selfsigned.generate(null, { clientCertificate: true });
console.log(pems)

Will return the following like this:

To override the default client CN of john doe jdoe123, add another option for clientCertificateCN:

var pems = selfsigned.generate(null, { clientCertificate: true, clientCertificateCN: 'FooBar' });
