Key Encoder JS

CircleCI npm npm npm Slack

Installation

$ npm install key-encoder

Getting Started

To get started, first define your key encoder and raw private/public keys.

SECP256k1 Key Encoders

var KeyEncoder = require('key-encoder'),
    keyEncoder = new KeyEncoder('secp256k1')

As shown above, there is built in support for SECP256k1 (the curve Bitcoin uses), but you can pass in your own curve parameters for any curve you'd like.

Key Encoders w/ Custom Curves

var EC = require('elliptic').ec
var encoderOptions = {
    curveParameters: [1, 3, 132, 0, 10],
    privatePEMOptions: {label: 'EC PRIVATE KEY'},
    publicPEMOptions: {label: 'PUBLIC KEY'},
    curve: new EC('secp256k1')
}
var keyEncoder = new KeyEncoder(encoderOptions)

Declaring Raw Keys

var rawPrivateKey = '844055cca13efd78ce79a4c3a4c5aba5db0ebeb7ae9d56906c03d333c5668d5b',
    rawPublicKey = '04147b79e9e1dd3324ceea115ff4037b6c877c73777131418bfb2b713effd0f502327b923861581bd5535eeae006765269f404f5f5c52214e9721b04aa7d040a75'

Encoding Private Keys

Encode to and from raw, PEM, and DER formats.

Encoding Private Keys as PEMs

var pemPrivateKey = keyEncoder.encodePrivate(rawPrivateKey, 'raw', 'pem')

Example output:

-----BEGIN EC PRIVATE KEY-----
MHQCAQEEIIRAVcyhPv14znmkw6TFq6XbDr63rp1WkGwD0zPFZo1boAcGBSuBBAAK
oUQDQgAEFHt56eHdMyTO6hFf9AN7bId8c3dxMUGL+ytxPv/Q9QIye5I4YVgb1VNe
6uAGdlJp9AT19cUiFOlyGwSqfQQKdQ==
-----END EC PRIVATE KEY-----

Encoding Private Keys to DER Format

var derPrivateKey = keyEncoder.encodePrivate(rawPrivateKey, 'raw', 'der')

Example output:

Encoding Public Keys

Encode to and from raw, PEM, and DER formats.

Encoding Public Keys as PEMs

var pemPublicKey = keyEncoder.encodePublic(rawPublicKey, 'raw', 'pem')

Example output:

-----BEGIN PUBLIC KEY-----
MFYwEAYHKoZIzj0CAQYFK4EEAAoDQgAEFHt56eHdMyTO6hFf9AN7bId8c3dxMUGL
+ytxPv/Q9QIye5I4YVgb1VNe6uAGdlJp9AT19cUiFOlyGwSqfQQKdQ==
-----END PUBLIC KEY-----

Encoding Public Keys to DER Format

var derPublicKey = keyEncoder.encodePublic(rawPublicKey, 'raw', 'der')

Example output:

3056301006072a8648ce3d020106052b8104000a03420004147b79e9e1dd3324ceea115ff4037b6c877c73777131418bfb2b713effd0f502327b923861581bd5535eeae006765269f404f5f5c52214e9721b04aa7d040a75
