Passport-LocalAPIKey

Passport strategy for authenticating with a apikey.

This module lets you authenticate using a apikey in your Node.js applications which is used to build rest apis.By plugging into Passport, local apikey authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express.

Installation

$ npm install passport-localapikey

Usage

Configure Strategy

The local api key authentication strategy authenticates users using a apikey.
The strategy requires a verify callback, which accepts these credentials and calls done providing a user.

passport.use(new LocalAPIKeyStrategy(
  function(apikey, done) {
    User.findOne({ apikey: apikey }, function (err, user) {
      if (err) { return done(err); }
      if (!user) { return done(null, false); }
      return done(null, user);
    });
  }
));

Authenticate Requests

Use passport.authenticate(), specifying the 'localapikey' strategy, to authenticate requests.

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

app.post('/api/authenticate', 
  passport.authenticate('localapikey', { failureRedirect: '/api/unauthorized' }),
  function(req, res) {
    res.json({ message: "Authenticated" })
  });

Examples

curl -v -d "apikey=asdasjsdgfjkjhg" http://127.0.0.1:3000/api/authenticate

Tests
