Node.js Sample Application

Run demonstration test encrypt and decrypt calls with this sample application

Overview

This sample application will demonstrate how to encrypt and decrypt data using the different APIs.

Installation

First clone the sample source code the Ubiq repository and change directory to the sample application git clone (repository)

cd ubiq-node/example

Continue with the existing Installation Commands npm or yarn:

cd example
npm install
#or
yarn install

Credentials file

Edit the credentials file with your account API Key Credentials created using the Ubiq Dashboard:

[default]
ACCESS_KEY_ID = ...
SECRET_SIGNING_KEY = ...
SECRET_CRYPTO_ACCESS_KEY = ...

View program options

From within the example directory:

cd example
node ubiq_sample.js -h

Demonstrate using the simple (-s) API interface to encrypt this README.md file and write the encrypted data to /tmp/readme.enc

node ubiq_sample.js -i ./README.md -o /tmp/readme.enc -e -s -c ./credentials

Demonstrate using the simple (-s) API interface to decrypt the /tmp/readme.enc file and write the decrypted output to /tmp/README.out

node ubiq_sample.js -i /tmp/readme.enc -o /tmp/README.out -d -s -c ./credentials

Demonstrate using the piecewise (-p) API interface to encrypt this README.md file and write the encrypted data to /tmp/readme.enc

node ubiq_sample.js -i ./README.md -o /tmp/readme.enc -e -p -c ./credentials

Demonstrate using the piecewise (-p / --piecewise) API interface to decrypt the /tmp/readme.enc file and write the decrypted output to /tmp/README.out

node ubiq_sample.js -i /tmp/readme.enc -o /tmp/README.out -d -p -c ./credentials

Ubiq Format Preserving Encryption (eFPE)

This library also incorporates Ubiq Format Preserving Encryption (eFPE). eFPE allows encrypting so that the output cipher text is in the same format as the original plaintext. This includes preserving special characters and control over what characters are permitted in the cipher text. For example, consider encrypting a social security number '123-45-6789'. The cipher text will maintain the dashes and look something like: 'W$+-qF-oMMV'.

See the Node.js API docs.

Installation

$ node ./ubiq_sample_fpe.js -h
Encrypt or decrypt data using the Ubiq eFPE service

  -h                       Show this help message and exit
  -V                       Show program's version number and exit
  -e INPUT                 Encrypt the supplied input string
                             escape or use quotes if input string
                             contains special characters
  -d INPUT                 Decrypt the supplied input string
                             escape or use quotes if input string
                             contains special characters
  -s                       Use the simple eFPE encryption / decryption interfaces
  -b                       Use the bulk eFPE encryption / decryption interfaces
  -n FFS                   Use the supplied Field Format Specification
  -c CREDENTIALS           Set the file name with the API credentials
                             (default: ~/.ubiq/credentials)
  -P PROFILE               Identify the profile within the credentials file

Demonstrate encrypting a social security number and returning a cipher text

$ node ./ubiq_sample_fpe.js -c ./credentials -P default -s -n SSN -e 123-45-6789

Demonstrate decrypting a social security number and returning the plain text

$ node ./ubiq_sample_fpe.js -c ./credentials -P default -s -n SSN -d 400-13-vTQB
