    Introduction

    Alright! There is already OpenSSL extension bundled with Node.js but there are something wrong with some traditional encryption algorithms on OpenSSL.

    I tried to decrypt ciphertext of AES and DES algorithms using OpenSSL but i get the garbage outputs. There are some reasons with OpenSSL like null padding.

    Also i saw same issues on the stackoverflow.com. Some people encountered with same problems.

    This extension provide the cipher and decipher operations via libmcrypt and compatible with Java Crypto and PHP MCrypt consequently.

    You should start with import the package like

    var mcrypt = require('mcrypt');

    There are 3 exposed common functions in the package. These functions are getAlgorithmNames(), getModeNames() and MCrypt() constructor function. Also there are some functions under the prototype of MCrypt() constructor function.

    getAlgorithmNames([path]) : Array

    getAlgorithmNames() returns an array that contains available algorithm names. path parameter to specify special algorithm directory. path parameter is not required.

    var mcrypt = require('mcrypt');
     
    var algos = mcrypt.getAlgorithmNames();
    console.log(algos);

    Expected result like that

    [ 'cast-128', 'gost', 'rijndael-128', 'twofish', 'arcfour', 'cast-256', 'loki97', 'rijndael-192', 'saferplus', 'wake', 'blowfish-compat', 'des', 'rijndael-256', 'serpent', 'xtea', 'blowfish', 'enigma', 'rc2', 'tripledes' ]
    

    getModeNames([path]) : Array

    getModeNames() returns an array that contains available mode names. path parameter to specify special mode directory. path parameter is not required.

    var mcrypt = require('mcrypt');
     
    var algos = mcrypt.getModeNames();
    console.log(algos);

    Expected result like that

    [ 'cbc', 'cfb', 'ctr', 'ecb', 'ncfb', 'nofb', 'ofb', 'stream' ]
    

    MCrypt(algorithm, mode [, algorithmDir] [, modeDir]) : Object

    MCrypt(algorithm, mode) is a constructor function to create object for cipher and decipher operations. algorithm is a required parameter and one of the values of array returned by getAlgorithmNames(). mode is required parameter and one of the values of array returned by getModeNames(). algorithmDir and modeDir are optional parameters to specify algorithm and mode directories.

    var MCrypt = require('mcrypt').MCrypt;
     
    var desEcb = new MCrypt('des', 'ecb');

    There are some prototype functions to make cipher decipher operations and to identify algorithm properties.

    open(key [, iv])

    We are need to open() with a key for decrypt() and encrypt() operations also we should set an iv if required by algorithm in other case iv is optional parameter. key and iv should be string or Buffer

    var MCrypt = require('mcrypt').MCrypt;
     
    var desEcb = new MCrypt('des', 'ecb');
    desEcb.open('madepass'); // we are set the key

    encrypt(plaintext) : Buffer

    encrypt() returns a Buffer object that contains ciphertext of plaintext parameter. plaintext parameter should be string or Buffer

    var MCrypt = require('mcrypt').MCrypt;
     
    var desEcb = new MCrypt('des', 'ecb');
    desEcb.open('madepass'); // we are set the key
     
    var ciphertext = desEcb.encrypt('this is top secret message!');
    console.log(ciphertext.toString('base64'));

    Expected result like that

    fkJnIgtiH8nsGDryyuIsmyf5vABMGStlpACfKCTifvA=
    

    decrypt(ciphertext) : Buffer

    decrypt() returns a Buffer object that contains plaintext of ciphertext parameter. ciphertext parameter should be Buffer

    var MCrypt = require('mcrypt').MCrypt;
     
    var desEcb = new MCrypt('des', 'ecb');
    desEcb.open('madepass'); // we are set the key
     
    var plaintext = desEcb.decrypt(new Buffer('fkJnIgtiH8nsGDryyuIsmyf5vABMGStlpACfKCTifvA=', 'base64'));
    console.log(plaintext.toString());

    Expected result like that

    this is top secret message!
    

    generateIv() : Buffer

    generateIv() function generates IV randomly.

    var MCrypt = require('mcrypt').MCrypt;
     
    var blowfishCfb = new MCrypt('blowfish', 'cfb');
    var iv = blowfishCfb.generateIv();
     
    blowfishCfb.open('somekey', iv);
     
    var ciphertext = blowfishCfb.encrypt('sometext');
     
    console.log(Buffer.concat([iv, ciphertext]).toString('base64'));

    validateKeySize(Boolean)

    validateKeySize() is a function to disable or enable key size validation on open()

    var mc = new MCrypt('blowfish', 'ecb');
    mc.validateKeySize(false); // disable key size checking
    mc.open('typeconfig.sys^_-');

    validateIvSize(Boolean)

    validateIvSize() is a function to disable or enable iv size validation on open()

    var mc = new MCrypt('rijndael-256', 'cbc');
    mc.validateIvSize(false); // disable iv size checking
    mc.open('$verysec$retkey$', 'foobar');

    selfTest() : Boolean

    selfTest() is an utility function to make test algorithm internally and returns boolean value of status

    var MCrypt = require('mcrypt').MCrypt;
     
    var blowfishCfb = new MCrypt('blowfish', 'cfb');
    console.log(blowfishCfb.selfTest());

    getBlockSize() : Number

    var MCrypt = require('mcrypt').MCrypt;

    getKeySize() : Number

    var MCrypt = require('mcrypt').MCrypt;
