Build status Go Report Card

Multi purpose cryptography tool for encryption/decryption using AES256 GCM.

A "swiss-army" encryption/decryption knife with focus on developer experience, ease-of-use and integration capabilities in infrastructure-as-code software such as https://github.com/hashicorp/terraform.

Combined with https://github.com/sumup-oss/terraform-provider-vaulted, it's shown at https://medium.com/@syndbg/provisioning-vault-encrypted-secrets-using-terraform-using-sumup-oss-vaulted-and-4aa9721d082c?source=friends_link&sk=9eabe1bbe6ba089fe176d94cf413862d

Why

  • Ease-of-use.
  • First-class terraform support. Also check https://github.com/sumup-oss/terraform-provider-vaulted/.
  • Asymmetric encryption.
  • Large files are supported due to AES256 GCM encryption/decryption used.
  • GPG/PGP keychain-less which means you don't need external GPG/PGP keychain and neither do your users. (Support for this may be added in the future)
  • Completely testable and high test coverage consisting of unit, integration and e2e tests.
  • Encryption,
  • Decryption,
  • Secret rotation,
  • Secret re-keying.

How it works

Used in:

  • https://github.com/sumup-oss/terraform-provider-vaulted to provide encryption/decryption capabilities.
  • SumUp inner-source large-scale provision orchestration software projects.
  • SumUp inner-source projects that deploy using Ansible. Used to encrypt/decrypt the initial Ansible-Vault passphrase.
  • SumUp infrastructure provisioning via Terraform to provide Vault secrets and enable developers to encrypt and submit secrets as PRs without anyone other than system administrators, devops, site-reliability engineers be able to decrypt them.
  • SumUp inner-source CI systems that need to encrypt/decrypt secrets in sandboxes.

Prerequisites

  1. RSA public and private key pair for asymmetric encryption (using openssl, cfssl or whichever works for you).

Setup

Generating a private key pair for asymmetric encryption

# Generate PKCS#1 private key
# NOTE: `-traditional` is needed for new versions of OpenSSL. For older versions you can omit it. 
# It's needed to generate PKCS#1 private key.
> openssl genrsa -traditional -f4 -out private.pem 4096
# Generate from private key, a public key
> openssl rsa -in private.pem -outform PEM -pubout -out public.pem

I already have keys

Make sure that your private and public keys are PEM-formatted.

Example valid public key

-----BEGIN PUBLIC KEY-----
...
-----END PUBLIC KEY-----

Your private key must be PKCS#1-formatted.

Example PKCS#1-formatted private key

-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
...
<content>
...
-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----

Example unusable with vaulted PKCS#8-formatted private key

-----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY-----
...
<content>
...
-----END PRIVATE KEY-----

What is the difference in base64-encoded content?

Obvious different is in the PEM block names.

However, in terms of content, PKCS#8 PEM contains the version and algorithm identifiers and private key content.

The PKCS#1 PEM contains just the private key content.

Data format structure

When you use vaulted, you're going to see that it generates unique "strings" in a certain format. The format is:

  • Reserved $VED signature
  • Data format version, e.g 1.0
  • Separator ::
  • Randomly generated and base64-encoded AES256 cipher passphrase encrypted via user-provided RSA public key
  • Separator ::
  • User-provided base64-encoded secret payload encrypted via the previously randomly generated AES256 cipher passphrase

E.g payload

$VED;1.0::lobnjrnSDJZBzWeaETjbxc0Gqs3cm6BlIkgCebGBtTYJSchZRMoJlXjH79ladMuBxkjvRbk/Hul5ZjC+gKGjLW1wm+1n+KmZQGjeq418zq1uZ5S6GGLGC/x9tc1CYV2n6dljTV77kSDaL94/My6sHp+HKeHP6LM/uGg0ixRMqv8gW/uC27wnjuONzad9I/EfUmyoDxd7sIi3nr/UnLelsgDJ4cCMlABAmEdXf+TyrpLfSQ7t7DACTpzB3WIomlNM4jSmcvhbVHfvmsOZgzIxK38LyvNAsLNAHZx/e0NcEE8jxBei3r8MHZZ9JSms1KlHzRbR7Yh8+giYx4ArpmS/vw==::m8mqNQMIfNpdWjj3zjCe/aoNCwfpCUbJ/3Dt4ulcLyRFOZR8dA==
