var HawkStrategy = require('passport-hawk');

passport.use('my-hawk-strategy', new HawkStrategy(function (id, done) {
  Users.findById(id, function (err, user){
    if(err) return done(err);
    done(null, {
      key:       user.secret,
      algorithm: 'sha256', // sha1 or sha256
      user:      user

  myExpressApp.use('/api', 
    passport.authenticate('my-hawk-strategy', { session: false }));
