    Description

    Generate, import, and export PeerIDs, for use with IPFS.

    A Peer ID is the SHA-256 multihash of a public key.

    The public key is a base64 encoded string of a protobuf containing an RSA DER buffer. This uses a node buffer to pass the base64 encoded public key protobuf to the multihash for ID generation.

    Example

    const PeerId = require('peer-id')
     
    PeerId.create({ bits: 1024 }, (err, id) => {
      if (err) { throw err }
      console.log(JSON.stringify(id.toJSON(), null, 2))
    })
    {
      "id""Qma9T5YraSnpRDZqRR4krcSJabThc8nwZuJV3LercPHufi",
      "privKey""CAAS4AQwggJcAgEAAoGBAMBgbIqyOL26oV3nGPBYrdpbv..",
      "pubKey""CAASogEwgZ8wDQYJKoZIhvcNAQEBBQADgY0AMIGJAoGBAMBgbIqyOL26oV3nGPBYrdpbvzCY..."
    }

    Installation

    npm

    > npm i peer-id

    Setup

    Node.js

    const PeerId = require('peer-id')

    Browser: Browserify, Webpack, other bundlers

    The code published to npm that gets loaded on require is in fact a ES5 transpiled version with the right shims added. This means that you can require it and use with your favourite bundler without having to adjust asset management process.

    const PeerId = require('peer-id')

    Browser: <script> Tag

    Loading this module through a script tag will make the PeerId obj available in the global namespace.

    <script src="https://unpkg.com/peer-id/dist/index.min.js"></script>
    <!-- OR -->
    <script src="https://unpkg.com/peer-id/dist/index.js"></script>

    API

    const PeerId = require('peer-id')

    Create

    new PeerId(id[, privKey, pubKey])

    • id: Buffer - The multihash of the publick key as Buffer
    • privKey: RsaPrivateKey - The private key
    • pubKey: RsaPublicKey - The public key

    The key format is detailed in libp2p-crypto.

    create([opts], callback)

    Generates a new Peer ID, complete with public/private keypair.

    • opts: Object: Default: {bits: 2048}
    • callback: Function

    Calls back callback with err, id.

    Import

    createFromHexString(str)

    Creates a Peer ID from hex string representing the key's multihash.

    createFromBytes(buf)

    Creates a Peer ID from a buffer representing the key's multihash.

    createFromB58String(str)

    Creates a Peer ID from a Base58 string representing the key's multihash.

    createFromPubKey(pubKey)

    • publicKey: Buffer

    Creates a Peer ID from a buffer containing a public key.

    createFromPrivKey(privKey)

    • privKey: Buffer

    Creates a Peer ID from a buffer containing a private key.

    createFromJSON(obj)

    • obj.id: String - The multihash encoded in base58
    • obj.pubKey: String - The public key in protobuf format, encoded in base64
    • obj.privKey: String - The private key in protobuf format, encoded in base64

    createFromAddress(address)

    • address: String | Buffer - The Ethereum address.

    Export

    toHexString()

    Returns the Peer ID's id as a hex string.

    toBytes()

    Returns the Peer ID's id as a buffer.

    <Buffer 12 20 d6 24 39 98 f2 fc 56 34 3a d7 ed 03 42 ab 78 86 a4 eb 18 d7 36 f1 b6 7d 44 b3 7f cc 81 e0 f3 9f>
    

    toB58String()

    Returns the Peer ID's id as a base58 string.

    toJSON()

    Returns an obj of the form

    • obj.id: String - The multihash encoded in base58
    • obj.pubKey: String - The public key in protobuf format, encoded in 'base64'
    • obj.privKey: String - The private key in protobuf format, encoded in 'base 64'

    toPrint()

    Returns the Peer ID as a printable string without the Qm prefix.

    Example: <peer.ID xxxxxx>

    isEqual(id)

    • id can be a PeerId or a Buffer containing the id
