sodium-native

Low level bindings for libsodium.

npm install sodium-native

build status build status

The goal of this project is to be thin, stable, unopionated wrapper around libsodium.

All methods exposed are more or less a direct translation of the libsodium c-api. This means that most data types are buffers and you have to manage allocating return values and passing them in as arguments intead of receiving them as return values.

This makes this API harder to use than other libsodium wrappers out there, but also means that you'll be able to get a lot of perf / memory improvements as you can do stuff like inline encryption / decryption, re-use buffers etc.

This also makes this library useful as a foundation for more high level crypto abstractions that you want to make.

Usage

var sodium = require('sodium-native')

var nonce = Buffer.alloc(sodium.crypto_secretbox_NONCEBYTES)
var key = sodium.sodium_malloc(sodium.crypto_secretbox_KEYBYTES) // secure buffer
var message = Buffer.from('Hello, World!')
var ciphertext = Buffer.alloc(message.length + sodium.crypto_secretbox_MACBYTES)

sodium.randombytes_buf(nonce) // insert random data into nonce
sodium.randombytes_buf(key)  // insert random data into key

// encrypted message is stored in ciphertext.
sodium.crypto_secretbox_easy(ciphertext, message, nonce, key)

console.log('Encrypted message:', ciphertext)

var plainText = Buffer.alloc(ciphertext.length - sodium.crypto_secretbox_MACBYTES)

if (!sodium.crypto_secretbox_open_easy(plainText, ciphertext, nonce, key)) {
  console.log('Decryption failed!')
} else {
  console.log('Decrypted message:', plainText, '(' + plainText.toString() + ')')
}

API

Go to docs for the latest release (The following docs may be for a unreleased version)

var sodium = require('sodium-native')

Loads the bindings. If you get an module version error you probably need to reinstall the module because you switched node versions.

Memory Protection

Bindings to the secure memory API. See the libsodium "Securing memory allocations" docs for more information.

sodium.sodium_memzero(buffer)

Zero out the data in buffer.

sodium.sodium_mlock(buffer)

Lock the memory contained in buffer

sodium.sodium_munlock(buffer)

Unlock previously sodium_mlocked memory contained in buffer. This will also sodium_memzero buffer

var buffer = sodium.sodium_malloc(size)

Allocate a buffer of size which is memory protected. See libsodium docs for details. Be aware that many Buffer methods may break the security guarantees of sodium.sodium_malloc'ed memory. To check if a Buffer is a "secure" buffer, you can call access the getter buffer.secure which will be true.

sodium.sodium_mprotect_noaccess(buffer)

Make buffer allocated using sodium.sodium_malloc inaccessible, crashing the process if any access is attempted. Note that this will have no effect for normal Buffers.

sodium.sodium_mprotect_readonly(buffer)

Make buffer allocated using sodium.sodium_malloc read-only, crashing the process if any writing is attempted. Note that this will have no effect for normal Buffers.

sodium.sodium_mprotect_readwrite(buffer)

Make buffer allocated using sodium.sodium_malloc read-write, undoing sodium_mprotect_noaccess or sodium_mprotect_readonly. Note that this will have no effect for normal Buffers.

  • hash should be a buffer with length crypto_pwhash_STRBYTES.
  • opslimit should a be number containing your ops limit setting in the range crypto_pwhash_OPSLIMIT_MIN - crypto_pwhash_OPSLIMIT_MAX.
  • memlimit should a be number containing your mem limit setting in the range crypto_pwhash_MEMLIMIT_MIN - crypto_pwhash_OPSLIMIT_MAX.

Returns true if the hash should be rehashed the settings contained in str. Otherwise false if it is still good.

crypto_pwhash_async(output, password, salt, opslimit, memlimit, algorithm, callback)

Just like crypto_pwhash but will run password hashing on a seperate worker so it will not block the event loop. callback(err) will receive any errors from the hashing but all argument errors will throw. The resulting hash is written to output. This function also supports async_hooks as the type sodium-native:crypto_pwhash_async

crypto_pwhash_str_async(output, password, opslimit, memlimit, callback)

Just like crypto_pwhash_str but will run password hashing on a seperate worker so it will not block the event loop. callback(err) will receive any errors from the hashing but all argument errors will throw. The resulting hash with parameters is written to output. This function also supports async_hooks as the type sodium-native:crypto_pwhash_str_async

crypto_pwhash_str_verify_async(str, password, callback)

Just like crypto_pwhash_str_verify but will run password hashing on a seperate worker so it will not block the event loop. callback(err, bool) will receive any errors from the hashing but all argument errors will throw. If the verification succeeds bool is true, otherwise false. Due to an issue with libsodium err is currently never set. This function also supports async_hooks as the type sodium-native:crypto_pwhash_str_verify_async
