OCSP APIs for node.js Build Status

Various OCSP-related APIs to be used with node.js/io.js.

Installing

$ npm install ocsp

Parts

  1. Agent
  2. Cache
  3. Server
  4. check()/verify()
  5. request.generate()
  6. getOCSPURI()

Agent

Usage:

var agent = new ocsp.Agent();

https.request({
  method: ...,
  host: ...,
  port: ...,
  path: ...,
  // Other options

  agent: agent
}, function(res) {
  // ...
});

The following code snippet will perform request to the specified server, and will verify that the certificate of the server using OCSP (either stapling or response from the CA).

NOTE: You may pass options object to new ocsp.Agent(options), it may have following properties:

  • CACacheSize: number of CA certificates to keep in the cache. (Default: 1024)

Cache

Usage:

var cache = new ocsp.Cache();

var server = https.createServer({
  cert: cert,
  key: key
}, function(req, res) {
  res.end('hello world');
});

server.on('OCSPRequest', function(cert, issuer, cb) {
  ocsp.getOCSPURI(cert, function(err, uri) {
    if (err) return cb(err);
    if (uri === null) return cb();

    var req = ocsp.request.generate(cert, issuer);
    cache.probe(req.id, function(err, cached) {
      if (err) return cb(err);
      if (cached !== false) return cb(null, cached.response);

      var options = {
        url: uri,
        ocsp: req.data
      };

      cache.request(req.id, options, cb);
    });
  });
});

Cache should be used to provide OCSP Stapling responses to the client.

NOTE: Constructor accepts options object with following properties:

  • probe: override .probe() method
  • store: override .store() method
  • filter: filter(url, callback) to white list CA urls to do requests

Server

Usage:

var server = ocsp.Server.create({
  cert: cert,
  key: key
});

server.addCert(43, 'good');
server.addCert(44, 'revoked', {
  revocationTime: new Date(),
  revocationReason: 'CACompromise'
});

server.listen(8000);

OCSP Server, i.o.w. HTTP server providing OCSP responses for supplied OCSP requests.

Has following methods:

  • .addCert(serialNumber, status, info), where:
    • serialNumber could be either plain number, or instance of bn.js
    • status is one of good, revoked
    • info should be empty for good and should contain object for revoked (see example above, revocationReason is one of: unspecified, keyCompromise, CACompromise, affiliationChanged, superseded, cessationOfOperation, certificateHold, removeFromCRL, privelegeWithdrawn, AACompromise)
  • All of http.Server methods!

.check()

Usage:

ocsp.check({
  cert: cert,
  issuer: issuerCert
}, function(err, res) {
  if (err)
    throw err;

  console.log(res);
});

Send an OCSP request to the CA and ask if the cert is still valid. res constains the info.

.verify()

Usage:

ocsp.verify({
  request: request,
  // Optional, `issuer: issuerCert,`
  response: response
}, function(err, res) {
});

Verify that response matches the request and is signed by the CA.

request.generate()

Usage:

var req = ocsp.request.generate(cert, issuerCert);

Generate OCSP request for .verify() or for sending it manually to OCSP server.

getOCSPURI()

Usage:

ocsp.getOCSPURI(cert, function(err, uri) {
});

Get URI of OCSP server.
