Here is an example of a secure paste (or what would be a secure paste if the key was not publically available in this README file): https://quick-crypt.firebaseapp.com/view/-Knu9OobhmhI4Fuo4YAG. To view and decrypt the paste, click the link and enter the key
Don'tPostThisPublically. You should only be able to view the secret message if you enter the correct key.
Encryption using a password has been abstracted to the
encrytion.service.ts service. Currently, the service wraps the Stanford encryption library using
sjcl.json.encrypt() as a simple encryption solution.
Data Storage Strategy
Since sensitive data in pastes is encrypted, it can be stored publically. As a result, pastes are stored by default in a public firebase. Firebase provides the advantages of free data storage and realtime updates.
This is currently a work-in-progress repository. As a result, it is lacking in testing, documentation, and styling.
