cryptr

cryptr is a simple encrypt and decrypt module for node.js

It is for doing simple encryption of values that need to be decrypted at a later time.

The Cryptr constructor takes 2 option arguments.

Cryptr([secret, algorithm])

If a secret is not provided the default secret is used but a warning message is logged to the console.

Cryptr: Warning - Using default secret...

If an algorithm is not provided it defaults to aes256.\

DO NOT USE THIS MODULE FOR ENCRYPTING PASSWORDS!

Passwords should be a one way hash. Use bcrypt for that.

Install

npm install cryptr

Usage

Simple

var Cryptr = require("./cryptr"),
    cryptr = new Cryptr('myTotalySecretKey'); ;

...

var encryptedString = cryptr.encrypt('bacon');  
console.log(encryptedString);  // 876c9f1ce7d2465fb919e66e11daaafc

...

var decryptedString = cryptr.decrypt(encryptedString);
console.log(decryptedString);  // bacon
