Optimize Toolset

I’ve always been into building performant and accessible sites, but lately I’ve been taking it extremely seriously. So much so that I’ve been building a tool to help me optimize and monitor the sites that I build to make sure that I’m making an attempt to offer the best experience to those who visit them. If you’re into performant, accessible and SEO friendly sites, you might like it too! You can check it out at Optimize Toolset.

About

Hi, 👋, I’m Ryan Hefner  and I built this site for me, and you! The goal of this site was to provide an easy way for me to check the stats on my npm packages, both for prioritizing issues and updates, and to give me a little kick in the pants to keep up on stuff.

As I was building it, I realized that I was actually using the tool to build the tool, and figured I might as well put this out there and hopefully others will find it to be a fast and useful way to search and browse npm packages as I have.

If you’re interested in other things I’m working on, follow me on Twitter or check out the open source projects I’ve been publishing on GitHub.

I am also working on a Twitter bot for this site to tweet the most popular, newest, random packages from npm. Please follow that account now and it will start sending out packages soon–ish.

Open Software & Tools

This site wouldn’t be possible without the immense generosity and tireless efforts from the people who make contributions to the world and share their work via open source initiatives. Thank you 🙏

Readme

secp256k1-node

This module provides native bindings to bitcoin-core/secp256k1. In browser elliptic will be used as fallback.

Works on node version 14.0.0 or greater, because use N-API.

Installation

from npm

npm install secp256k1

from git
git clone [email protected]:cryptocoinjs/secp256k1-node.git
cd secp256k1-node
git submodule update --init
npm install
Windows

The easiest way to build the package on windows is to install windows-build-tools.

Or install the following software:

  • Git: https://git-scm.com/download/win
  • nvm: https://github.com/coreybutler/nvm-windows
  • Python 2.7: https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-2712/
  • Visual C++ Build Tools: http://landinghub.visualstudio.com/visual-cpp-build-tools (Custom Install, and select both Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 SDKs)

And run commands:

npm config set msvs_version 2015 --global
npm install npm@next -g

Usage

Private Key generation, Public Key creation, signature creation, signature verification
const { randomBytes } = require('crypto')
const secp256k1 = require('secp256k1')
// or require('secp256k1/elliptic')
//   if you want to use pure js implementation in node

// generate message to sign
// message should have 32-byte length, if you have some other length you can hash message
// for example `msg = sha256(rawMessage)`
const msg = randomBytes(32)

// generate privKey
let privKey
do {
  privKey = randomBytes(32)
} while (!secp256k1.privateKeyVerify(privKey))

// get the public key in a compressed format
const pubKey = secp256k1.publicKeyCreate(privKey)

// sign the message
const sigObj = secp256k1.ecdsaSign(msg, privKey)

// verify the signature
console.log(secp256k1.ecdsaVerify(sigObj.signature, msg, pubKey))
// => true

* .verify return false for high signatures

Get X point of ECDH
const { randomBytes } = require('crypto')
// const secp256k1 = require('./elliptic')
const secp256k1 = require('./')

// generate privKey
function getPrivateKey () {
  while (true) {
    const privKey = randomBytes(32)
    if (secp256k1.privateKeyVerify(privKey)) return privKey
  }
}

// generate private and public keys
const privKey = getPrivateKey()
const pubKey = secp256k1.publicKeyCreate(privKey)

// compressed public key from X and Y
function hashfn (x, y) {
  const pubKey = new Uint8Array(33)
  pubKey[0] = (y[31] & 1) === 0 ? 0x02 : 0x03
  pubKey.set(x, 1)
  return pubKey
}

// get X point of ecdh
const ecdhPointX = secp256k1.ecdh(pubKey, privKey, { hashfn }, Buffer.alloc(33))
console.log(ecdhPointX.toString('hex'))
