req.signedCookies

An object containing all the signed cookies from the request object. A signed cookie is protected against modification by the client. This protection is provided by a base64 encoded HMAC of the cookie value. When retrieving the cookie, if the HMAC signature does not match based on the cookie's value, then the cookie is not available as a member of the req.signedCookies object

Purpose

An object containing all of the signed cookies from this request (req).

Usage

req.signedCookies;

Example

Adding a signed cookie named "chocolatechip" with value "Yummy:

res.cookie('chocolatechip', 'Yummy', {signed:true});

Retrieving the cookie:

req.signedCookies.chocolatechip;
// "Yummy"
