XML digital signatures (xmldsig)

Overview

This module performs XML digital signature production and verification as specified in xmldsig-core.

To operate, a preconstructed DOM object is required. Any object that implements the DOM Level 2 API will suffice. I recommend xmldom if you're working with node, or your browser's native DOM implementation if you're not.

Super Quickstart

Also see example.js.

//
// $ openssl genrsa 1024 > signer.key
// $ openssl rsa -pubout < signer.key > signer.pub
//

var fs = require("fs"),
    xmldom = require("xmldom");

var dsig = require("xml-dsig");

var xml = '<docs><doc id="doc-1"/><doc id="doc-2"/></docs>',
    doc = (new xmldom.DOMParser()).parseFromString(xml);

var options = {
  signatureOptions: {
    privateKey: fs.readFileSync("./signer.key"),
    publicKey: fs.readFileSync("./signer.pub"),
  }
};

var node = doc.documentElement;

var signature = dsig.createSignature(node, options),
    enveloped = dsig.insertEnvelopedSignature(node, options);

console.log("");

console.log(node.toString());
console.log("");

console.log(signature.toString());
console.log("");

console.log(enveloped.toString());
console.log("");

console.log(dsig.verifySignature(node, signature, options));
console.log("");

Installation

Available via npm:

$ npm install xml-dsig

Or via git:

$ git clone git://github.com/deoxxa/xml-dsig.git node_modules/xml-dsig

API

dsig.createSignature

Creates a signature element from an XML DOM node.

dsig.createSignature(node, options);
// returns a DOM node representing the Signature element

var signature = dsig.createSignature(node, {
  transforms: ["http://www.w3.org/2001/10/xml-exc-c14n#"],
  canonicalisationAlgorithm: "http://www.w3.org/2001/10/xml-exc-c14n#",
  digestAlgorithm: "http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmlenc#sha256",
  signatureAlgorithm: "http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmldsig-more#rsa-sha256",
  signatureOptions: {
    privateKey: "...",
    publicKey: "...",
  },
});

Arguments

  • node - a DOM node implementing DOM Level 2
  • options - an object specifying options for how to construct the signature

dsig.verifySignature

Verifies a signature given a DOM node, a signature element, and any required parameters for the signature (keys, etc).

dsig.verifySignature(node, signatureElement, options);
var signatureIsValid = dsig.verifySignature(node, signatureElement, options);

Arguments

  • node - a DOM node implementing DOM Level 2
  • signatureElement - a DOM node representing the XML signature to check
  • options - an object specifying options for how to construct the signature (see createSignature above for more information)

dsig.insertEnvelopedSignature

Creates a signature with an enveloped signature transformation applied and returns a new element with the signature inserted as a child node.

dsig.insertEnvelopedSignature(node, options);
var newElement = dsig.insertEnvelopedSignature(node, options);
  • node - a DOM node implementing DOM Level 2
  • options - an object specifying options for how to construct the signature (see createSignature above for more information)
