    Bch ECIES

    NPM Package Build Status Coverage Status

    A module for [bch][bch] 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 bch repo or the bch guide on ECIES for more information.

    Credit to [@ryanxcharles][ryan] 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'
