CurveCP is a low-level protocol for streaming bytes across the network, much like TCP. Except in a secure manner.
This is an attempt to translate the reference implementation into clojure.
bootlaces tries to use adzerk.bootlaces.template/update- dependency to update the version referenced in here.
FIXME: Take advantage of that
It was initially designed by Daniel J. Bernstein. The spec, justification, and explanation can be found at CurveCP.
Not even pre-alpha. I have most of the handshake translated, and I've been able to round-trip a single echo message without encryption or network access, but there's still a lot to be done.
In retrospect, this probably wasn't a great idea. A pure java implementation seems like it would have been a much wiser choice.
But, hey, I've taken it this far. And this does give me a higher-level perspective to really think about what's going on, above and beyond the bit twiddling.
And moving forward into multithreading seems like it should be very natural.
Although you probably don't want to actually use it yet.
[com.frereth/cp "current version"]
docker build -t frereth/curve-cp .
Publish to clojars
From the master branch
boot set-version javac build-jar push-release
This should be the same as
TODO: Verify that.
git tag major.minor.patch
Then push the release as described immediately above.
Right now, this will trigger a warning that the tag already exists.
This is something else that needs more hammock time.
From a working branch
bash> boot cider-repl
then connect to nrepl over port 32767.
Line numbers in comments
A lot of comments reference line numbers. Those really point back to the reference implementation, from https://github.com/krig/nacl
Having the tweetnacl java source just copy/pasted in the middle breaks every linter I've tried to use. It seems like that part really needs to be published somewhere as its own library.
Then again, maybe not. Maybe that violates the entire point behind using tweetnacl.
