eris-keys

0.6.1 • Public • Published

This is a JavaScript client library to facilitate interaction with an Eris Keys server.

Note: Eris Keys does not expose an interface to get private keys.

Installation

$ npm install eris-keys

Usage

First start a key server:

$ eris services start keys --publish

'use strict'
 
const assert = require('assert')
const keys = require('../../lib')
 
describe('a client for eris-keys', function () {
  it('generates a key, signs a message, and verifies the signature',
    function () {
      this.timeout(10 * 1000)
 
      // Connect to the key server.
      return keys.serviceUrl('services', 'keys', 4767).then((url) => {
        const server = keys.connect(url)
 
        // Generate a new key pair.
        return server.generateKeyPair().then((keyPairId) => {
          const message = 'a message in a bottle'
 
          return Promise.all([
            // Get the public key of the key pair.
            server.publicKeyFor(keyPairId),
 
            // Sign the message.
            server.sign(message, keyPairId)
          ]).then(([publicKey, signature]) =>
            server.verifySignature(message, signature, publicKey)
              .then((valid) => {
                assert(valid)
              })
          )
        })
      })
    })
})
