HTTP MITM Proxy

HTTP Man In The Middle (MITM) Proxy written in node.js. Supports capturing and modifying the request and response data.

Build Status

Install

npm install --save http-mitm-proxy

Typescript

type definitions are now included in this project, no extra steps required.

Example

This example will modify any search results coming from google and replace all the result titles with "Pwned!".

var Proxy = require('http-mitm-proxy');
var proxy = Proxy();

proxy.onError(function(ctx, err) { console.error('proxy error:', err); });

proxy.onRequest(function(ctx, callback) { if (ctx.clientToProxyRequest.headers.host == 'www.google.com' && ctx.clientToProxyRequest.url.indexOf('/search') == 0) { ctx.use(Proxy.gunzip);

ctx.onResponseData(function(ctx, chunk, callback) {
  chunk = new Buffer(chunk.toString().replace(/<h3.>/g, '<h3>Pwned!</h3>'));
  return callback(null, chunk);
});

} return callback(); });

proxy.listen({port: 8081}); </h3.>

You can find more examples in the examples directory

SSL

Using node-forge allows the automatic generation of SSL certificates within the proxy. After running your app you will find options.sslCaDir + '/certs/ca.pem' which can be imported to your browser, phone, etc.

API

Proxy

Context

Context functions only effect the current request/response. For example you may only want to gunzip requests made to a particular host.

WebSocket Context

The context available in websocket handlers is a bit different

Proxy

proxy.listen

Starts the proxy listening on the given port.

Arguments

  • options - An object with the following options:
    • port - The port or named socket to listen on (default: 8080).
    • host - The hostname or local address to listen on.
    • sslCaDir - Path to the certificates cache directory (default: process.cwd() + '/.http-mitm-proxy')
    • keepAlive - enable HTTP persistent connection
    • timeout - The number of milliseconds of inactivity before a socket is presumed to have timed out. Defaults to no timeout.
    • httpAgent - The http.Agent to use when making http requests. Useful for chaining proxys. (default: internal Agent)
    • httpsAgent - The https.Agent to use when making https requests. Useful for chaining proxys. (default: internal Agent)
    • forceSNI - force use of SNI by the client. Allow node-http-mitm-proxy to handle all HTTPS requests with a single internal server.
    • httpsPort - The port or named socket for https server to listen on. (forceSNI must be enabled)
    • forceChunkedRequest - Setting this option will remove the content-length from the proxy to server request, forcing chunked encoding.

Example

proxy.listen({ port: 80 });

proxy.close

Stops the proxy listening.

Example

proxy.close();

proxy.onError(fn) or ctx.onError(fn)

Adds a function to the list of functions to get called if an error occures.

Arguments

  • fn(ctx, err, errorKind) - The function to be called on an error.

Example

proxy.onError(function(ctx, err, errorKind) {
  // ctx may be null
  var url = (ctx && ctx.clientToProxyRequest) ? ctx.clientToProxyRequest.url : "";
  console.error(errorKind + ' on ' + url + ':', err);
});

proxy.onCertificateRequired = function(hostname, callback)

Allows the default certificate name/path computation to be overwritten.

The default behavior expects

keys/{hostname}.pem
and
certs/{hostname}.pem
files to be at
self.sslCaDir
.

Arguments

  • hostname - Requested hostname.
  • callback - The function to be called when certificate files' path were already computed.

Example 1

proxy.onCertificateRequired = function(hostname, callback) {
  return callback(null, {
    keyFile: path.resolve('/ca/certs/', hostname + '.key'),
    certFile: path.resolve('/ca/certs/', hostname + '.crt')
  });
};

Example 2: Wilcard certificates

proxy.onCertificateRequired = function(hostname, callback) {
  return callback(null, {
    keyFile: path.resolve('/ca/certs/', hostname + '.key'),
    certFile: path.resolve('/ca/certs/', hostname + '.crt'),
    hosts: ["*.mydomain.com"]
  });
};

proxy.onCertificateMissing = function(ctx, files, callback)

Allows you to handle missing certificate files for current request, for example, creating them on the fly.

Arguments

  • ctx - Context with the following properties
    • hostname - The hostname which requires certificates
    • data.keyFileExists - Whether key file exists or not
    • data.certFileExists - Whether certificate file exists or not
  • files - missing files names (
    files.keyFile
    ,
    files.certFile
    and optional
    files.hosts
    )
  • callback - The function to be called to pass certificate data back (
    keyFileData
    and
    certFileData
    )

Example 1

proxy.onCertificateMissing = function(ctx, files, callback) {
  console.log('Looking for "%s" certificates',   ctx.hostname);
  console.log('"%s" missing', ctx.files.keyFile);
  console.log('"%s" missing', ctx.files.certFile);

// Here you have the last chance to provide certificate files data // A tipical use case would be creating them on the fly // // return callback(null, { // keyFileData: keyFileData, // certFileData: certFileData // }); };

Example 2: Wilcard certificates

proxy.onCertificateMissing = function(ctx, files, callback) {
  return callback(null, {
    keyFileData: keyFileData,
    certFileData: certFileData,
    hosts: ["*.mydomain.com"]
  });
};
