react-native-ssl-pinning

React-Native ssl pinning & public key pinning using OkHttp 3 in Android, and AFNetworking on iOS.

NOTES:

  • for RN 0.60.0 or later use react-native-ssl-pinning@latest

Getting started

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

Mostly automatic installation

If you are using React Native 0.60.+ the link should happen automatically. in iOS run pod install

$ 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

Add maven { url "https://jitpack.io" } to project level build.gradle like this:

allprojects {
    repositories {
	maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
    }
}
  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 -servername google.com -connect google.com:443 </dev/null

  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

For more ways to obtain the server certificate please refer:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/7885785/using-openssl-to-get-the-certificate-from-a-server

iOS

  • drag mycert.cer to Xcode project, mark your target and 'Copy items if needed'
  • (skip this if you are using certificate pinning) no extra step needed for public key pinning, AFNetworking will extract the public key from the certificate.

Android

  • Only if using certificate pinning : place your .cer files under src/main/assets/

  • For public key pinning the public key should be extracted by the following options : (replace google with your domain)

    • openssl s_client -servername google.com -connect google.com:443 | openssl x509 -pubkey -noout | openssl rsa -pubin -outform der | openssl dgst -sha256 -binary | openssl enc -base64
    • Turn on pinning with a broken configuration and read the expected configuration when the connection fails.
       fetch("https://publicobject.com", {
       	method: "GET" ,
       	pkPinning: true,
       	sslPinning: {
       		certs: ["sha256/AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA="] 
       	}
       })
      • Now look at your logcat , As expected, this fails with a certificate pinning exception:
        javax.net.ssl.SSLPeerUnverifiedException: Certificate pinning failure!
        Peer certificate chain:
        sha256/afwiKY3RxoMmLkuRW1l7QsPZTJPwDS2pdDROQjXw8ig=: CN=publicobject.com, OU=PositiveSSL
        sha256/klO23nT2ehFDXCfx3eHTDRESMz3asj1muO+4aIdjiuY=: CN=COMODO RSA Secure Server CA
        sha256/grX4Ta9HpZx6tSHkmCrvpApTQGo67CYDnvprLg5yRME=: CN=COMODO RSA Certification Authority
        sha256/lCppFqbkrlJ3EcVFAkeip0+44VaoJUymbnOaEUk7tEU=: CN=AddTrust External CA Root
        Pinned certificates for publicobject.com:
        sha256/AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA=
        at okhttp3.CertificatePinner.check(CertificatePinner.java)
        at okhttp3.Connection.upgradeToTls(Connection.java)
        at okhttp3.Connection.connect(Connection.java)
        at okhttp3.Connection.connectAndSetOwner(Connection.java)
      • Follow up by pasting the public key hashes from the exception into the certificate pinner's configuration

Certificate Pinning

import {fetch} from 'react-native-ssl-pinning';

fetch(url, {
	method: "POST" ,
	timeoutInterval: communication_timeout, // milliseconds
	body: body,
	// your certificates array (needed only in android) ios will pick it automatically
	sslPinning: {
		certs: ["cert1","cert2"] // your certificates name (without extension), for example cert1.cer, cert2.cer
	},
	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}`)
})

Public Key Pinning

import {fetch} from 'react-native-ssl-pinning';

fetch("https://publicobject.com", {
      method: "GET" ,
      timeoutInterval: 10000, // milliseconds
      // your certificates array (needed only in android) ios will pick it automatically
      pkPinning: true,
      sslPinning: {
        certs: ["sha256//r8udi/Mxd6pLO7y7hZyUMWq8YnFnIWXCqeHsTDRqy8=",
        "sha256/YLh1dUR9y6Kja30RrAn7JKnbQG/uEtLMkBgFF2Fuihg=",
        "sha256/Vjs8r4z+80wjNcr1YKepWQboSIRi63WsWXhIMN+eWys="
      ]
      },
      headers: {
        Accept: "application/json; charset=utf-8", "Access-Control-Allow-Origin": "*", "e_platform": "mobile",
      }
	})
	

Disable Pinning

 fetch("https://publicobject.com", {
      method: "GET" ,
      timeoutInterval: 10000, // milliseconds
      disableAllSecurity: true,
      headers: {
        Accept: "application/json; charset=utf-8", "Access-Control-Allow-Origin": "*", "e_platform": "mobile",
      }
	})
		

Case Sensitive Headers

 fetch("https://publicobject.com", {
      method: "GET" ,
      timeoutInterval: 10000, // milliseconds
      caseSensitiveHeaders: true, //in case you want headers to be case Sensitive
      headers: {
		Accept: "application/json; charset=utf-8", "Access-Control-Allow-Origin": "*", "e_platform": "mobile",
		SOAPAction: "testAction",
      }
	})

Cookies Handling

import {removeCookieByName} from 'react-native-ssl-pinning';


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
})

fetch(url, {
	method: "POST" ,
	timeoutInterval: communication_timeout, // milliseconds
	body: {
		formData: request,
	},
	sslPinning: {
		certs: ["cert1","cert2"]
	},
	headers: {
		accept: 'application/json, text/plain, /',
	}
})

don't add 'content-type': 'multipart/form-data; charset=UTF-8',
Setting the Content-Type header manually means it's missing the boundary parameter. Remove that header and allow fetch to generate the full content type.
