Generate a self signed x509 certificate from node.js.

Install

npm install selfsigned

Usage

var selfsigned = require('selfsigned'); var attrs = [{ name: 'commonName', value: 'contoso.com' }]; var pems = selfsigned.generate(attrs, { days: 365 }); console.log(pems)
Async
selfsigned.generate(attrs, { days: 365 }, function (err, pems) { console.log(pems) });

Will return the following like this:

Options

var pems = selfsigned.generate(null, { keySize: 2048, // the size for the private key in bits (default: 1024) days: 30, // how long till expiry of the signed certificate (default: 365) algorithm: 'sha256', // sign the certificate with specified algorithm (default: 'sha1') extensions: [{ name: 'basicConstraints', cA: true }], // certificate extensions array pkcs7: true, // include PKCS#7 as part of the output (default: false) clientCertificate: true, // generate client cert signed by the original key (default: false) clientCertificateCN: 'jdoe' // client certificate's common name (default: 'John Doe jdoe123') });

You can avoid key pair generation specifying your own keys ({ keyPair: { publicKey: '-----BEGIN PUBLIC KEY-----...', privateKey: '-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----...' })

Generate Client Certificates

If you are in an environment where servers require client certificates, you can generate client keys signed by the original (server) key.

var pems = selfsigned.generate(null, { clientCertificate: true }); console.log(pems)

Will return the following like this:
