Connect-pgp

A middleware for Connect.js signing HTTP responses.

Usage

var connect = require('connect');
var pgpsign = require('connect-pgp');

var armoredPrivateKey = fs.readFileSync('somePGPKey.private', 'utf8');

var app = connect();
app.use(pgpsign(armoredPrivateKey, 'password for unlocking'));

// Or, to use gpg system command as underlying PGP signature layer
app.use(pgpsign(armoredPrivateKey, 'password for unlocking', 'keyringName'));

Triggering

Middleware triggers on HTTP header:

"Accept: multipart/signed"

then answers:

  HTTP/1.1 200 OK
  Content-Type: multipart/signed; boundary=bar; micalg=pgp-sha1; protocol="application/pgp-signature"

  --bar
  Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1
  Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
  
& This is the body content.
& 
& Every word and every space in the body content body will be
& signed, even the two fields "Content-Type" and "Content-Transfer-Encoding"
& above, with the new line before this body content.

  --bar
  Content-Type: application/pgp-signature
  
  -----BEGIN PGP MESSAGE-----
  Version: 2.6.2

N.B.: the part of the response with '&' is what is signed.
