    ECIES for Bitcore-Dash

    NPM Package Build Status Coverage Status

    A module for bitcore-dash that implements the Elliptic Curve Integrated Encryption Scheme (ECIES). Uses ECIES symmetric key negotiation from public keys to encrypt arbitrarily long data streams.

    See the main bitcore-dash repo or the bitcore guide on ECIES for more information.

    Credit to @ryanxcharles for the original implementation.

    Getting started

    ECIES will allow to securely encrypt and decrypt messages using ECDSA key pairs (bitcoin cryptography).

    var alice = ECIES()
      .privateKey(aliceKey)
      .publicKey(bobKey.publicKey);
     
    var message = 'some secret message';
    var encrypted = alice.encrypt(message);
     
    // encrypted will contain an encrypted buffer only Bob can decrypt
     
    var bob = ECIES()
      .privateKey(bobKey)
      .publicKey(aliceKey.publicKey);
    var decrypted = bob
      .decrypt(encrypted)
      .toString();
    // decrypted will be 'some secret message'
