CryptoEngine package

This simplifies even further the usage of the NaCl crypto primitives, by taking care of the nonce part. It uses a KDF, specifically HKDF to compute the nonces.

Big Picture

The encryption and decryption phases are the following:


Message -> Encrypt -> EncryptedMessage -> ToBytes() -> < = NETWORK = >  <- FromBytes() -> EncryptedMessage -> Decrypt -> Message

Usage

1- Import the library

import github.com/sec51/cryptoengine

2- Instanciate the CryptoEngine object via:

    engine, err := cryptoengine.InitCryptoEngine("Sec51")
    if err != nil {
        return err
    }

See the godoc for more info about the InitCryptoEngine parameter

3- Encrypt a message using symmetric encryption

    message := "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"
    engine.NewMessage(message)
    if err != nil {
        return err
    }

4- Serialize the message to a byte slice, so that it can be safely sent to the network

    messageBytes, err := tcp.ToBytes()
    if err != nil {
        t.Fatal(err)
    }   

5- Parse the byte slice back to a message

    message, err := MessageFromBytes(messageBytes)
    if err != nil {
        t.Fatal(err)
    }
