aes4js

A high-level long-term-supported AES-GCM 256 encrypt/decrypt routine for JavaScript using native WebCrypto API

purpose

A simple and safe promise-based text+binary encryption library for browsers. It uses plain text keys and plain-text-capable (JSON) ciphertext output for easy integration and storage. Keeping with best practices, the AES Encryption keys are derived from the plain text password using 100,000 rounds of PBKDF with SHA256 to prevent brute-forcing guessing.

usage

There are only 2 methods:

  • encrypt(key, plain) - encode plain (string or arrayBuffer) to ciphertext data object using key
  • decrypt(key, cipher) - decode cipher object/JSON back into plain(string or arrayBuffer) using key

example

aes4js.encrypt("123", "hello world") // encrypt with password 123
      .then(aes4js.decrypt.bind(this, "123")) // decrypt
      .then(alert) // display decrypted value

requires

aes4js uses no outside code libraries, but does require several native browser APIs and Classes:

  • atob()
  • Array.from()
  • Blob()
  • FileReader()
  • TextDecoder()
  • TextEncoder()
  • Uint8Array()
  • crypto.getRandomValues()
  • crypto.subtle.encrypt()
  • crypto.subtle.decrypt()
  • crypto.subtle.digest()
  • crypto.subtle.exportKey()
  • crypto.subtle.importKey()
