react-native-ssl-pinning

React-Native Ssl pinning using OkHttp 3 in Android, and AFNetworking on iOS.

Getting started

$ npm install react-native-ssl-pinning --save

Mostly automatic installation

$ react-native link react-native-ssl-pinning

Manual installation

iOS

  1. In XCode, in the project navigator, right click LibrariesAdd Files to [your project's name]
  2. Go to node_modulesreact-native-ssl-pinning and add RNSslPinning.xcodeproj
  3. In XCode, in the project navigator, select your project. Add libRNSslPinning.a to your project's Build PhasesLink Binary With Libraries
  4. Run your project (Cmd+R)<

Android

  1. Open up android/app/src/main/java/[...]/MainActivity.java
  • Add import com.toyberman.RNSslPinningPackage; to the imports at the top of the file
  • Add new RNSslPinningPackage() to the list returned by the getPackages() method
  1. Append the following lines to android/settings.gradle:
    include ':react-native-ssl-pinning'
    project(':react-native-ssl-pinning').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, 	'../node_modules/react-native-ssl-pinning/android')
    
  2. Insert the following lines inside the dependencies block in android/app/build.gradle:
      compile project(':react-native-ssl-pinning')
    

Usage

Create the certificates:

  1. openssl s_client -showcerts -connect google.com:443 (replace google with your domain)

  2. Copy the certificate (Usally the first one in the chain), and paste it using nano or other editor like so , nano mycert.pem

  3. convert it to .cer with this command openssl x509 -in mycert.pem -outform der -out mycert.cer

iOS

  • drag mycert.cer to Xcode project, mark your target and 'Copy items if needed'

Android

  • Place your .cer files under src/main/assets/.
import {fetch, removeCookieByName} from 'react-native-ssl-pinning';

fetch(url, {
	method: "POST" ,
	timeoutInterval: communication_timeout,
	body: body,
	// your certificates array (needed only in android) ios will pick it automatically
	sslPinning: {
		certs: ["cert1","cert2"]
	},
	headers: {
		Accept: "application/json; charset=utf-8", "Access-Control-Allow-Origin": "*", "e_platform": "mobile",
	}
}).then(response => {
	console.log(`response received ${response}`)
})
.catch(err => {
	console.log(`error: ${err}`)
})

removeCookieByName('cookieName')
	.then(res =>{
		    console.log('removeCookieByName');
	})

getCookies('domain')
	.then(cookies => {
		// do what you need with your cookies
	})

Multipart request (FormData)

let formData = new FormData()

#You could add a key/value pair to this using #FormData.append:

formData.append('username', 'Chris');

# Adding a file to the request
formData.append('file', {
		name: encodeURIComponent(response.fileName),
		fileName: encodeURIComponent(response.fileName),
		type: this._extractFileType(response.fileName),
		uri: response.uri,
		data: response.data // needed for ios in base64
})

fetch(url, {
	method: "POST" ,
	timeoutInterval: communication_timeout,
	body: {
				formData: request,
	},
	sslPinning: {
		certs: ["cert1","cert2"]
	},
	headers: {
				'content-type': 'multipart/form-data; charset=UTF-8',
				accept: 'application/json, text/plain, /',
		}
})
