Cookie authentication strategy for Passport

This module lets you authenticate HTTP requests using cookies, it only allows you to recover the content of a cookie.

By plugging into Passport, bearer token support can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express..

Install

$ npm install passport-cookie

Usage

Configure Strategy

The cookie authentication strategy authenticates users using a cookie. The strategy requires a verify callback, which accepts that credential and calls done providing a user.

passport.use(new CookieStrategy(
  function(token, done) {
    User.findByToken({ token: token }, function(err, user) {
      if (err) { return done(err); }
      if (!user) { return done(null, false); }
      return done(null, user);
    });
  }
));

Authenticate Requests

Use passport.authenticate(), specifying the 'cookie' strategy, to authenticate requests. Requests containing cookies do not require session support, so the session option can be set to false.

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

app.get("/profile",
  passport.authenticate("cookie", { session: false }),
  function(req, res) {
    res.json(req.user);
  });

Tests

$ npm install
$ npm test
