Technical overview

Kickpass is built around a shared library named libkickpass.

libkickpass leverage libsodium to create safes.

Safes are created using authenticated encryption with associated data. As of now libkickpass use chacha20 along with poly1305 to encrypt and authenticate the safe.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
