siphash.js

A pure Javascript implementation of SipHash-2-4

SipHash is a family of pseudorandom functions optimized for short inputs. Target applications include network traffic authentication and hash-table lookups protected against hash-flooding denial-of-service attacks. SipHash has well-defined security goals and competitive performance.

Installation

Server-side installation (nodejs):

$ npm install siphash

Browser-side: use lib/siphash.min.js.

Usage

var siphash = require("siphash"),
    key = siphash.string16_to_key("0123456789ABCDEF"),
    message = "Short test message",
    hash_hex = siphash.hash_hex(key, message);

A key is an array of 4 integers, and each of them will be clamped to 32 bits in order to build a 128-bit key. For a random key, just generate 4 random integers instead of calling string16_to_key().

var siphash = require("siphash"),
    key = [ 0xdeadbeef, 0xcafebabe, 0x8badf00d, 0x1badb002 ],
    message = "Short test message",
    hash_hex = siphash.hash_hex(key, message);

The 64-bit hash can also be obtained as two 32-bit values with hash(key, message):

var siphash = require("siphash"),
    key = [ 0xdeadbeef, 0xcafebabe, 0x8badf00d, 0x1badb002 ],
    message = "Short test message",
    hash = siphash.hash(key, message),
    hash_msb = hash.h,
    hash_lsb = hash.l;

A 53-bit unsigned integer can be obtained with hash_uint(key, message):

var siphash = require("siphash"),
    key = siphash.string16_to_key("0123456789ABCDEF"),
    message = "Short test message",
    index = siphash.hash_uint(key, message);
