EOSIO SDK for Swift: Reference iOS Authenticator Signature Provider EOSIO Labs

Software License Swift 4.2

Reference iOS Authenticator Signature Provider is a pluggable signature provider for EOSIO SDK for Swift. Native iOS Apps using this signature provider in conjunction with EOSIO SDK for Swift are able to integrate with the EOSIO Reference iOS Authenticator App, allowing their users to sign in and approve transactions via the authenticator app.

Inter-application communication conforms to and is facilitated by the EOSIO Authentication Transport Protocol Specification.

About Signature Providers

The Signature Provider abstraction is arguably the most useful of all of the EOSIO SDK for Swift providers. It is responsible for:

  • finding out what keys are available for signing (getAvailableKeys), and
  • requesting and obtaining transaction signatures with a subset of the available keys (signTransaction).

By simply switching out the signature provider on a transaction, signature requests can be routed any number of ways. Need a signature directly from keys in the platform's Keychain or Secure Enclave? Configure the EosioTransaction with a conforming signature provider that exposes that functionality, such as the EOSIO SDK for Swift: Vault Signature Provider. Need signatures from a wallet on the user's device? This signature provider demonstrates that functionality.

All signature providers must conform to the EosioSignatureProviderProtocol Protocol.

Prerequisites

  • Xcode 10 or higher
  • CocoaPods 1.5.3 or higher
  • For iOS, iOS 11+

Dependencies

Reference iOS Authenticator Signature Provider depends on the EOSIO SDK for Swift library as a dependency. EOSIO SDK for Swift will be automatically installed when you include the Reference iOS Authenticator Signature Provider in your application with CocoaPods.

Reference iOS Authenticator Signature Provider also requires the presence on the user's device of EOSIO Reference iOS Authenticator App or another authenticator implementing the required interfaces to pass selective disclosure and signature requests to.

Installation

Reference iOS Authenticator Signature Provider is intended to be used in conjunction with EOSIO SDK for Swift as a provider plugin.

To use Reference iOS Authenticator Signature Provider with EOSIO SDK for Swift in your app, add the following pods to your Podfile:

use_frameworks!

target "Your Target" do
  pod "EosioSwift", "~> 0.1.1" # EOSIO SDK for Swift core library
  pod "EosioSwiftReferenceAuthenticatorSignatureProvider", "~> 0.1.1" # pod for this library
  # add other providers for EOSIO SDK for Swift
  pod "EosioSwiftAbieosSerializationProvider", "~> 0.1.1" # serialization provider
end

Now Reference iOS Authenticator Signature Provider is ready for use within EOSIO SDK for Swift according to the EOSIO SDK for Swift Basic Usage instructions.

Usage with EOSIO SDK for Swift

Generally, signature providers are called by EosioTransaction during signing. (See a generic example here.). To specifically use Reference iOS Authenticator Signature Provider in EosioTransaction, you can follow the example below:

let from = "testuseraaaa"
let to = "testuserbbbb"
var amount = "10.0000 SYS"
let memo = "Test transfer."

let transaction = EosioTransaction()
transaction.rpcProvider = EosioRpcProvider(endpoint: URL(string: "https://my.blockchain.domain")!)
transaction.serializationProvider = EosioAbieosSerializationProvider()

let eosioAppSignatureProvider = EosioReferenceAuthenticatorSignatureProvider.shared
eosioAppSignatureProvider.returnUrl = "myappurl://"
eosioAppSignatureProvider.declaredDomain = "myapp.domain.com"

// Optional, set security exclusions if testing or debugging
if let theSecurityExclusions = self.securityExclusions {
    eosioAppSignatureProvider.securityExclusions = theSecurityExclusions
}

transaction.signatureProvider = eosioAppSignatureProvider

let action = try! EosioTransaction.Action(
    account: EosioName("eosio.token"),
    name: EosioName("transfer"),
        authorization: [EosioTransaction.Action.Authorization(
        actor: EosioName(from),
        permission: EosioName("active"))
      	 ],
    data: Transfer(
        from: EosioName(from),
        to: EosioName(to),
        quantity: amount,
        memo: memo)
)
transaction.add(action: action)

transaction.signAndBroadcast { (result) in
    print(try! transaction.toJson(prettyPrinted: true))
    switch result {
    case .failure (let error):
        print("Error = \(error)")
        self.showAlert(title: error.errorCode.rawValue, message: "\(error.localizedDescription)", dismiss: "Sorry :(")
    case .success:
        if let transactionId = transaction.transactionId {
            print("SUCCESS!!!!!!")
            self.showAlert(title: "SUCCESS!!!!!!", message: "TransactionId: \(transactionId)", dismiss: "OK :)")
            print(transactionId)
        }
    }
}

Direct Usage

If you find, however, that you need to get available keys or request signing directly, this library can be invoked as follows:

let eosioAppSignatureProvider = EosioReferenceAuthenticatorSignatureProvider.shared
eosioAppSignatureProvider.returnUrl = "myappurl://"
eosioAppSignatureProvider.declaredDomain = "myapp.domain.com"

// Initialize security exclusions and set if desired. Optional.
if let theSecurityExclusions = self.securityExclusions {
    eosioAppSignatureProvider.securityExclusions = theSecurityExclusions
}

eosioAppSignatureProvider.getAvailableKeys() { (response) in
    if let error = response.error {
	     // Handle error
    }
    if let keys = response.keys {
        // Get Accounts for Keys and potentially let users choose which
        // account key to use.
    }
}

To sign an EosioTransaction, create an EosioTransactionSignatureRequest object and call the EosioReferenceAuthenticatorSignatureProvider.signTransaction(request:completion:) method with the request:

let eosioAppSignatureProvider = EosioReferenceAuthenticatorSignatureProvider.shared
eosioAppSignatureProvider.returnUrl = "myappurl://"
eosioAppSignatureProvider.declaredDomain = "myapp.domain.com"

// Initialize security exclusions and set if desired. Optional.
if let theSecurityExclusions = self.securityExclusions {
    eosioAppSignatureProvider.securityExclusions = theSecurityExclusions
}

var signRequest = EosioTransactionSignatureRequest()
signRequest.serializedTransaction = serializedTransaction
signRequest.publicKeys = publicKeys
signRequest.chainId = chainId

eosioAppSignatureProvider.signTransaction(request: signRequest) { (response) in
    ...
}

Architecture

Reference iOS Authenticator Signature Provider uses the Deep Link URL Query String Payload transport to send requests to the EOSIO Reference iOS Authenticator App.

EOSIO Reference iOS Authenticator App sends responses to the requesting app via the EosioReferenceAuthenticatorSignatureProvider.returnUrl. Responses take the form of an EosioAvailableKeysResponse or an EosioTransactionSignatureResponse.

All of this is facilitated by the EOSIO Authentication Transport Protocol Specification.

Diagram

Your application will need to be registered for the URL scheme that you configured in the Reference iOS Authenticator Signature Provider and implement the application(_:open:options:) method in your AppDelegate to handle the incoming URL and encoded parameters that will be sent back by the EOSIO Reference iOS Authenticator App.

func application(_ app: UIApplication, open url: URL, options: [UIApplication.OpenURLOptionsKey : Any] = [:]) -> Bool {
    EosioReferenceAuthenticatorSignatureProvider.handleIncoming(url: url)
    return true
}

Library Methods and Options

This library is an implementation of EosioSignatureProviderProtocol. It implements the following protocol methods:

  • EosioSwiftReferenceAuthenticatorSignatureProvider.signTransaction(request:completion:) signs an EosioTransaction.
  • EosioSwiftReferenceAuthenticatorSignatureProvider.getAvailableKeys(completion:) returns a response containing the public keys associated with the private keys that the object is initialized with.

EosioSwiftReferenceAuthenticatorSignatureProvider is implemented as a singleton. To access it simply call:

  • let eosioAppSignatureProvider = EosioSwiftReferenceAuthenticatorSignatureProvider.shared which will return the current instance, initializing it if necessary.
  • Set the return URL, if you have not already done so. eosioAppSignatureProvider.returnUrl = "myappurl://"
  • Set the declared domain for matching, if you have not already done so. eosioAppSignatureProvider.declaredDomain = "myapp.domain.com"
  • Optionally, pass any SecurityExclusions you wish to set if you are doing development and testing. eosioAppSignatureProvider.securityExclusions = mySecurityExclusions. More information about security exclusions can be found here.

Other functions included with Reference iOS Authenticator Signature Provider will assist you in handling, decoding and validating incoming URL responses from EOSIO Reference iOS Authenticator App.
