cryptr

cryptr is a simple aes-256-ctr encrypt and decrypt module for node.js

It is for doing simple encryption of values UTF-8 strings that need to be decrypted at a later time.

If you require anything more than that you probably want to use something more advanced or crypto directly.

The Cryptr constructor takes 1 required argument.

Cryptr(secret)

The iv is randomly generated and prepended to the result

DO NOT USE THIS MODULE FOR ENCRYPTING PASSWORDS!

Passwords should be a one way hash. Use bcrypt for that.

Install

npm install cryptr

Usage

const Cryptr = require('cryptr');
const cryptr = new Cryptr('myTotalySecretKey');

const encryptedString = cryptr.encrypt('bacon');
const decryptedString = cryptr.decrypt(encryptedString);

console.log(encryptedString); // 5590fd6409be2494de0226f5d7
console.log(decryptedString); // bacon
