split-ca

Simple node.js module to split a single certificate authority chain file (bundle, ca-bundle, ca-chain, etc.) into an array, as expected by the node.js tls api

Installation

npm install split-ca

Usage

Usage will depend on your server module of choice, but most https modules require an options hash with ca, key, and cert. Simply give split-ca the filepath of your bundle file.

var https = require('https');
var fs = require('fs');
 
var splitca = require('split-ca');
 
var options = {
  ca: splitca("path/to/ca_bundle_file"),
  key:fs.readFileSync("path/to/server_key_file"),
  cert:fs.readFileSync("path/to/server_cert_file"),
  requestCert: true,
  rejectUnauthorized: true
};
 
https.createServer(options, function (req, res) {
  res.writeHead(200);
  res.end("hello world\n");
}).listen(8000);

Args

split-ca('filepath','split-string','encoding')

filepath

A standard node path to your object. An error is thrown if the file cannot be parsed, is not formatted properly.

split-string

Optional. Defaults to "\n", can be replaced with anything.

encoding

Optional. Defaults to "utf-8", can be replaced with anything accepted by node's fs module.
