HTTPSEdit

HTTPS is the HTTP protocol over TLS/SSL. In Node this is implemented as a separate module.

https.ServerEdit

https.createServerEdit

Example:

// curl -k https://localhost:8000/
var https = require('https');
var fs = require('fs');

var options = {
  key: fs.readFileSync('test/fixtures/keys/agent2-key.pem'),
  cert: fs.readFileSync('test/fixtures/keys/agent2-cert.pem')
};

https.createServer(options, function (req, res) {
  res.writeHead(200);
  res.end("hello world\n");
}).listen(8000);

https.request(options, callback)Edit

Makes a request to a secure web server. Similar options to http.request().

Example:

var https = require('https');

var options = {
  host: 'encrypted.google.com',
  port: 443,
  path: '/',
  method: 'GET'
};

var req = https.request(options, function(res) {
  console.log("statusCode: ", res.statusCode);
  console.log("headers: ", res.headers);

  res.on('data', function(d) {
    process.stdout.write(d);
  });
});
req.end();

req.on('error', function(e) {
  console.error(e);
});

The options argument has the following options

  • host: IP or domain of host to make request to. Defaults to 'localhost'.
  • port: port of host to request to. Defaults to 443.
  • path: Path to request. Default '/'.
  • method: HTTP request method. Default 'GET'.
  • key: Private key to use for SSL. Default null.
  • cert: Public x509 certificate to use. Default null.
  • ca: An authority certificate or array of authority certificates to check the remote host against.

https.get(options, callback)Edit

Like http.get() but for HTTPS.

Example:

var https = require('https');

https.get({ host: 'encrypted.google.com', path: '/' }, function(res) {
  console.log("statusCode: ", res.statusCode);
  console.log("headers: ", res.headers);

  res.on('data', function(d) {
    process.stdout.write(d);
  });

}).on('error', function(e) {
  console.error(e);
});
