type Address

type Address struct {
	// The fingerprint of the address signingKey
	Fingerprint []byte
	// The location of the user's server
	Location string
	// The publicKey of the user
	EncryptionKey *rsa.PublicKey
	// The signingKey of the user
	SigningKey *ecdsa.PublicKey

	// Optional Alias of the Address
	Alias string
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

The address structure provides abstractions on AirDispatch addresses

var Public *Address = &Address{
	public: true,

The Public variable has an address that can represent sending a message to the public.

func CreateAddressFromBytes

func CreateAddressFromBytes(b []byte) *Address

func CreateAddressFromString

func CreateAddressFromString(addr string) *Address

func DecodeAddress

func DecodeAddress(b []byte) (*Address, error)

func (*Address) CanSend

func (a *Address) CanSend() bool

func (*Address) Encode

func (a *Address) Encode() ([]byte, error)

func (*Address) EqualsBytes

func (a *Address) EqualsBytes(addr []byte) bool

func (*Address) HasLocation

func (a *Address) HasLocation() bool

func (*Address) IsPublic

func (a *Address) IsPublic() bool

Compares the Address to the `Public Address`.

func (*Address) String

func (a *Address) String() string

The string representation of an Address is just the Fingerprint of that address.

type Identity

type Identity struct {
	Address       *Address
	EncryptionKey *rsa.PrivateKey
	SigningKey    *ecdsa.PrivateKey

The Identity structure is a complete AirDispatch user including Encryption and Signing private keys.

WARNING: This structure should be stored carefully as having access to this data will be enough to impersonate someone on the AirDispatch network.

func CreateIdentity

func CreateIdentity() (id *Identity, err error)

This creates a new random, AirDispatch Identity

func GobDecodeKey

func GobDecodeKey(buffer io.Reader) (*Identity, error)

This function loads a Gob-Encoded ADKey from a buffer

func LoadKeyFromFile

func LoadKeyFromFile(filename string) (*Identity, error)

This function Loads an Airdispatch Key from a File

func (*Identity) GobEncodeKey

func (a *Identity) GobEncodeKey(buffer io.Writer) (io.Writer, error)

This function writes a Gob-Encoded ADKey to a buffer

func (*Identity) PopulateAddress

func (a *Identity) PopulateAddress()

func (*Identity) SaveKeyToFile

func (a *Identity) SaveKeyToFile(filename string) error

This function Saves an Airdispatch Key to a File

func (*Identity) SetLocation

func (a *Identity) SetLocation(newLocation string)

func (*Identity) SignBytes

func (a *Identity) SignBytes(payload []byte) (*wire.Signature, error)

This function signs a series of bytes
