SipHash24 sign and verify streams powered by a seedable keystream.


Get it!

npm install --save siphash24-stream

Usage

Create both signing and verifying streams by supplying a variable-length symmetric key that is used for seeding an internal keystream.

Run node ./usage.js:

var crypto = require('crypto')
var stream = require('stream')
var sip = require('siphash24-stream')
 
var DELIMITER = Buffer.from([ 0, 4, 1, 9, 4, 1, 9, 0 ])
 
var NSA = Buffer.concat([ // pac
  crypto.randomBytes(8),  // bad mac
  Buffer.from('nsa pac'), // msg
  DELIMITER
])
 
var shared = '419' // shared secret, symmetric key
var opts = { algo: 'alea', delimiter: DELIMITER } // default options
var alice = sip.createSigningStream(shared, opts) // alice signs
var bob = sip.createVerifyingStream(shared, opts) // bob verifies
var thru = new stream.PassThrough()               // some sort of socket
 
function onpac (info, chunk) {
  console.log(info, chunk.toString())
}
 
alice.pipe(thru).pipe(bob) // alice writes, bob reads
 
thru.on('data', onpac.bind(null, 'bob input:'))
bob.on('data', onpac.bind(null, 'bob ok:'))
bob.on('dropping', onpac.bind(null, 'bob dropping:'))
 
alice.write('push all dirty money overseas')
thru.write(NSA) // being intercepted
alice.end('and buy uzis')

Note that only legit msg packs pass thru the verifying end, in this case bob.


API

var sign = sip.createSigningStream(init[, opts])

Create a transform stream that signs all its throughput with a SipHash24 mac. init is the seed for a random byte generator used as key stream.

Options default to:

{
  algo: 'alea',
  delimiter: Buffer.from([ 0, 4, 1, 9, 4, 1, 9, 0 ])
}

opts.algo indicates the algorithm to use for the internal random number generator. Check out seedrandom for a list of supported algorithms. opts.delimiter is the message delimiter, must be a buffer.

var verify = sip.createVerifyingStream(init[, opts])

Create a transform stream that verifies all its throughput against a SipHash24 mac. Bad chunks are rejected and not passed on, not pushed any further, but emitted with the dropping event.

var { sign, verify } = sip.createSipHash24Streams(init[, opts])

Create a SipHash24 sign and verify stream duplet.

verify.on('dropping', ondropping)

Emitted with every chunk that will not be pushed further. Use this if you wish to check dropouts. Calling back like ondropping(chunk).
