hidden-machine

Compile JavaScript into a native addon for Node.js secured by libsodium

Install

$ npm install hidden-machine

Usage

In your package.json, add the following "prepublish" script:

...
  "main": "index.js",
  "scripts": {
    "install": "node-gyp-build",
    "prepublish": "hidden-machine lib/index.js -o . --key=$SHARED_APP_KEY"
  }
...

where lib/ is the entry path to your module code ./ is the output directory for a C file and a binding.gyp file, and index.js exports look something like:

module.exports = (key) => require('node-gyp-build')(__dirname).initialize(key)

and the calling code calls require('your-hidden-module')(Buffer.from(sharedApplicationKey, 'hex')).

where sharedApplicationKey can be generated with by running the following:

$ hidden-machine --keygen ## use --json for JSON output
...
 hidden-machine: publicKey= f4e6a97ae2a2d568de4f9b4144e736cd71ab338881cee6c44a48ced4cd66b504
 hidden-machine: secretKey= 3f9632bc7dc125fe399ed2f7739233274428bc96bdb8ece9ba5937a988fb5b4df4e6a97ae2a2d568de4f9b4144e736cd71ab338881cee6c44a48ced4cd66b504
 hidden-machine: secret= 211536a908a2e650f00c38867c9a4696a1d073323a0c2ac6a1a8f4012265f82a
 hidden-machine: key= 3f9632bc7dc125fe399ed2f7739233274428bc96bdb8ece9ba5937a988fb5b4d

and can be used when publishing or packing your module:

$ SHARED_APP_KEY=3f9632bc7dc125fe399ed2f7739233274428bc96bdb8ece9ba5937a988fb5b4d npm publish # or pack

Example

const sharedApplicationKey = generateSharedApplicationKey()
const keyPair = getKeyPair()
require('hidden-machine')('/path/to/input.js', {
  publicKey: keyPair.publicKey,
  secretKey: keyPair.secretKey,
  key: sharedApplicationKey,
}).then((result) => {
  for (const step of result.steps) {
    if ('Compiler' === step.name) {
      console.log(step.output)
    }
  }
})

API

require('hidden-machine')(input, opts)

Compile input entry module into a native module with the following options:

opts.publicKey

An optional public key to use for encryption.

opts.secretKey

An optional secret key corresponding to the given public key to use for encryption.

opts.secret

A shared secret value that is a blake2b hashed and used as the seed for public and secret key generation.

opts.nonce

The initial nonce value used for each crypto_secretbox_easy on each buffer segment.

opts.seed

An optional initial seed value. If this is given, the secret is ignored.

opts.key

An optional shared secret key that is used for encryption for each crypto_secretbox_easy call.

opts.compile

Everything is passed directly to ncc including:

  • opts.compile.build - Compiler output directory. (default: build/)
  • opts.compile.output - Optional build path prefix. (default: ``)

opts.bundle

  • opts.bundle.concurrency - The number of concurrent tasks the bundler will for each input target.
