Example :

index.js




// Node.js program to demonstrate the  
// x509.raw APi
  
// Importing crypto module
const {X509Certificate} = require('crypto')
  
// Importing fs module
const fs = require('fs')
  
// Getting object of a PEM encoded X509 Certificate. 
const x509 = new X509Certificate(fs.readFileSync('public-cert.pem'));
  
// Getting raw included in this certificate.
// by using x509.raw api
const value = x509.raw
  
// Display the result
console.log(value)

Run the index.js file using the following command:

node index.js

Output:

<Buffer 30 82 02 7f 30 82 01 e8 02 09 00 f1 c5 e5
f0 f7 5e 18 d8 30 0d 06 09 2a 86 48 86 f7 0d 01 01 0b 05

Example 2:

index.js




// Node.js program to demonstrate the  
// x509.raw APi
  
// Importing crypto module
const {X509Certificate} = require('crypto')
  
// Importing fs module
const fs = require('fs')
  
// Display the result
console.log((new X509Certificate(
  fs.readFileSync('public-cert.pem'))).raw)

Run the index.js file using the following command:

node index.js

Output:

<Buffer 30 82 02 7f 30 82 01 e8 02 09 00 f1 c5
