HTTP Public Key Pinning (HPKP) middleware

Build Status js-standard-style

Looking for a changelog?

Adds Public Key Pinning headers to Express/Connect applications. To learn more about HPKP, check out the spec, the article on MDN, and this tutorial.


var express = require('express')
var hpkp = require('hpkp')

var app = express()

var ninetyDaysInSeconds = 7776000
  maxAge: ninetyDaysInSeconds,
  sha256s: ['AbCdEf123=', 'ZyXwVu456='],
  includeSubDomains: true,         // optional
  reportUri: '', // optional
  reportOnly: false,               // optional

  // Set the header based on a condition.
  // This is optional.
  setIf: function (req, res) {

Setting reportOnly to true will change the header from Public-Key-Pins to Public-Key-Pins-Report-Only.

Don't let these get out of sync with your certs! It's also recommended to test your HPKP deployment in reportOnly mode, or alternatively, to use a very short maxAge until you're confident your deployment is correct.
