Ruby gem and command-line interface for decrypting and reading www.Strongbox.io files.
Strongbox (https://www.strongbox.io/) provides a simple way to effectively organize, secure, and share sensitive textual data, the kind that has no other home: passwords, credentials, credit card & account numbers, encryption keys, certificates, etc. - essentially, anything we're not comfortable simply putting into an unencrypted text document file or sharing via email, Skype, etc.
This gem enables decrypting and reading Strongbox files using the following Ruby Standard Libraries:
and the following third-party libraries:
nokogiri(for xml parsing)
highline(for password input)
This gem also ships with a command-line interface (an executable Ruby program). See command-line usage below.
Given a Strongbox file and password,
Strongbox.decrypt will handle everything
from opening the Strongbox file (extension
.sbox), reading the XML content,
extracting the XML's Data node, decoding from Base64, decrypting
AES-256-CBC), decompressing, and returning the raw content (which itself is
XML structured data, represented below as variable
At this point, the data just needs to be rendered (displayed); so we create a
strongbox object (
sb) and call
render on it.
d = Strongbox.decrypt(filename, password) sb = Strongbox.new(d) sb.render
RVM users: you probably want to install this gem into your default Ruby's global gemset.
