API stability Standard NPM version Downloads Gitter Chat

A wrapper for Helmet that works with Rill.

Helmet helps you secure your app by setting various HTTP headers.

Installation

npm install @rill/helmet

Example

You can use the default settings.

const app = require('rill')()
const helmet = require('@rill/helmet')
 
app.use(helmet())

Or use individual middleware.

app.use(helmet.noCache())
app.use(helmet.frameguard())

How it works

Helmet is a collection of 12 smaller middleware functions that set HTTP headers. Running app.use(helmet()) will not include all of these middleware functions by default.

Module Default?
contentSecurityPolicy for setting Content Security Policy
expectCt for handling Certificate Transparency
dnsPrefetchControl controls browser DNS prefetching
frameguard to prevent clickjacking
hidePoweredBy to remove the X-Powered-By header
hpkp for HTTP Public Key Pinning
hsts for HTTP Strict Transport Security
ieNoOpen sets X-Download-Options for IE8+
noCache to disable client-side caching
noSniff to keep clients from sniffing the MIME type
referrerPolicy to hide the Referer header
xssFilter adds some small XSS protections
