warner add test_keys to nail down symmetric encryption format
This establishes what our mailbox protocol does to encrypt the
individual (post-SPAKE2) messages, which combines NaCl SecretBox and our own
key-derivation choices. I'd like to move off of NaCl/libsodium and I think
some RFC7539-implementing library might be compatible, and with these test
vectors I can check that. I also want to copy these tests into the Rust port.

Get things from one computer to another, safely.

This package provides a library and a command-line tool named wormhole, which makes it possible to get arbitrary-sized files and directories (or short pieces of text) from one computer to another. The two endpoints are identified by using identical "wormhole codes": in general, the sending machine generates and displays the code, which must then be typed into the receiving machine.

The codes are short and human-pronounceable, using a phonetically-distinct wordlist. The receiving side offers tab-completion on the codewords, so usually only a few characters must be typed. Wormhole codes are single-use and do not need to be memorized.

For complete documentation, please see or the docs/ subdirectory.
