Native Lua/LuaJIT RC4 stream cipher library

Lua Compatibility

Version Module Dependencies Remark
Lua 5.2 bit32
Lua 5.3 bit32 bit32 has been deprecated
LuaJIT 2.0/2.1 ffi, bit ffi C struct optimized

Usage

local rc4 = require("rc4")
local key = "my_secret"

-- generate keystream
local rc4_ks_server = rc4(key)
local rc4_ks_client = rc4(key)

-- server encrypts messages
local msg_from_server_1 = "Hello"
local msg_from_server_2 = "This is SERVER"
local encrypted_msg_1 = rc4_ks_server(msg_from_server_1)
local encrypted_msg_2 = rc4_ks_server(msg_from_server_2) 

-- client decrypts messages one after another
local decrypted_msg_1 = rc4_ks_client(encrypted_msg_1)
assert(msg_from_server_1 == decrypted_msg_1)
local decrypted_msg_2 = rc4_ks_client(encrypted_msg_2)
assert(msg_from_server_2 == decrypted_msg_2)
