Brightspace Passport Authentication Strategy

Build Status

This is a Passport.js strategy for authenticating requests against the Brightspace authentication service.

Usage

To add this library as a dependency to your project run npm install --save passport-brightspace-auth

Configure it just as you would with any other Passport strategy and then you can use the Passport middleware to authenticate requests.

var BrightspaceStrategy = require('passport-brightspace-auth');
var app = require('express')();
var passport = require('passport');

passport.use(new BrightspaceStrategy());
app.use(passport.initialize());

app.get('/', passport.authenticate('brightspace'), function(req, res) {
    // req.user will be an instance of BrightspaceAuthToken
    // See https://github.com/Brightspace/node-auth-token
    res.send('You are authenticated!');
});

Options

The strategy also supports a few configuration options:

var opts = {
    issuer: 'https://auth.brightspace.com/core',
    maxClockSkew: 300
};

passport.use(new BrightspaceStrategy(opts));

issuer

A String specifying the auth instance to connect to. If omitted, the default is https://auth.brightspace.com/core.

maxClockSkew

A Number specifying the allowed clock skew, in seconds, when validating time-based claims. If omitted, the default is 300.
