SLIP39

npm

The javascript implementation of the SLIP39 for Shamir's Secret-Sharing for Mnemonic Codes.

The code based on my Dart implementation of SLIP-0039.

DISCLAIMER

This project is still in early development phase. Use it at your own risk.

Description

This SLIP39 implementation uses a 3 level height (l=3) of a 16 degree (d=16) tree (T), which is represented as an array of the level two nodes (groups, G).

The degree (d) and the level (l) of the tree are 16 and 3 respectively, which means that max d^(l-1), i.e. 16^2, leaf nodes (M) can be in a complete tree (or forest).

The first level (l=1) node of the tree is the the root (R), the level 2 ones are the SSS groups (Gs or group nodes) e.g. [G0, ..., Gd].

The last, the third, level nodes are the only leafs (M, group members) which contains the generated mnemonics.

Every node has two values:

  • the N and
  • M i.e. n(N,M).

Whihc means, that N (threshold) number of M children are required to reconstruct the node's secret.

Format

The tree's human friendly array representation only uses the group (l=2) nodes as arrays. For example. : [[1,1], [1,1], [3,5], [2,6]] The group's first parameter is the N (group threshold) while the second is the M, the number of members in the group. See, and example in Using.

Installing

npm install slip39

Using

See example/main.js

const slip39 = require('./src/slip39.js');
const assert = require('assert');
// threshold (N) number of group shares required to reconstruct the master secret.
const threshold = 2;
const masterSecret = 'ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOP'.encodeHex();
const passphrase = 'TREZOR';

/**
* 4 groups shares.
* = two for Alice
* = one for friends and
* = one for family members
* Two of these group shares are required to reconstruct the master secret.
*/
const groups = [
// Alice group shares. 1 is enough to reconstruct a group share,
// therefore she needs at least two group shares to be reconstructed,
[1, 1],
[1, 1],
// 3 of 5 Friends' shares are required to reconstruct this group share
[3, 5],
// 2 of 6 Family's shares are required to reconstruct this group share
[2, 6]
];

const slip = slip39.fromArray({
masterSecret: masterSecret,
passphrase: passphrase,
threshold: threshold,
groups: groups
});

// One of Alice's share
const aliceShare = slip.fromPath('r/0').mnemonics;

// and any two of family's shares.
const familyShares = slip.fromPath('r/3/1').mnemonics
.concat(slip.fromPath('r/3/3').mnemonics);

const allShares = aliceShare.concat(familyShares);

console.log('Shares used for restoring the master secret:');
allShares.forEach((s) => console.log(s));

const recoveredSecret = slip39.recoverSecret(allShares, passphrase);
console.log('Master secret: ' + masterSecret.decodeHex());
console.log('Recovered one: ' + recoveredSecret.decodeHex());
assert(masterSecret.decodeHex() === recoveredSecret.decodeHex());

TODOS

  • Add unit tests.
  • Test with the reference code's test vectors.
  • Refactor the helpers to different helper classes e.g. CryptoHelper(), ShamirHelper() etc.
  • Add JSON representation, see JSON representation below.
  • Refactor to much simpler code.
