node-js-scrypt

JS Implementation of SCrypt wrapped in a module for node.js consumption. There are no compiled dependencies for this module. It returned the computed bytes as a Buffer, not the Scrypt Hash Format (c2NyeXB0) string with included metadata.

Installation

npm install js-scrypt

Usage

var scrypt = require('js-scrypt');

//asynchronous
scrypt.hash(password, salt [,options], callback);

//synchronous
var resultBuffer = scrypt.hashSync(password, salt [,options])

Parameters

  • password (String or Buffer) - the value to be encoded/
    • String will be encoded to bytes as UTF-8.
    • Buffer will be encoded as-is.
  • salt (String or Buffer) - random data to be included in the hash.
    • String will be encoded to bytes as UTF-8.
    • Buffer will be encoded as-is.
  • options (Object, optional)
    • maxmem (Integer, optional) - the total memory available for scrypt in megabytes
      • default: 32
      • allowed values are (4,8,16,32,64,128,256,512,1024,2048)
    • cost (Integer, optional) - (N) must be a power of two, will set the overall difficulty of the computation.
      • default: 16384 - Math.pow(2,14)
      • min: Math.pow(2,8) - 256
      • max: Math.pow(2,64) - 18446744073709552000
      • Math.pow(2,14) - the scrypt paper's suggestion for interactive logins
      • Math.pow(2,20) - the scrypt paper's suggestion for filesystem encryption
    • blockSize (Integer, optional) - (r) blocksize to use
      • default: 8
      • min: 1
      • max: 256
    • parallel (Integer, optional) - (p) parallelization factor
      • default: 1 (given the runtime environment, it is probably best to leave this as-is)
      • min: 1
      • max: 256
    • size (Integer, optional) - (L) length of result (number of bytes to generate)
      • default: 64 (this is a 512bit result, which is plenty for general password usage)
      • min: 1
      • max: 2048
  • callback (Function) - function(err, resultBuffer)

TODO

  • Create method(s) to simulate time/memory computation of Nrp vectors which will return a c2NyeXB0 Scrypt Hash Format string.
