      Is to reduce the exposure and attack surfaces. The less you expose the less you have to protect. NodeJS itself is not the problem here. Definition of the problem is first, then we can look at the system under inspection.

      For example there would be little data security if you allowed Facebook to interact and monitor the user interaction. But others may need such for monetization. Again, you must define what security you want to talk about and you failed to detail that in this discussion.

      Like any other programming language or framework, Node. js is susceptible to every type of web app exposure. Although the basis of Node. js is secure, third-party packages may need more security standards to safeguard your web app.

      Helmet is the best , because it can help protect your app from some well-known web vulnerabilities by setting HTTP headers appropriately.

      Helmet is a collection of several smaller middleware functions that set security-related HTTP response headers. Some examples include:

      helmet content Security Policy which sets the Content-Security-Policy header. This helps prevent cross-site scripting attacks among many other things.
      helmet hosts which sets the Strict-Transport-Security header. This helps enforce secure (HTTPS) connections to the server.
      helmet. which sets the X-Frame-Options header. This provides clickjacking protection.
