Postal Services over Swarm

pss enables message relay over swarm. This means nodes can send messages to each other without being directly connected with each other, while taking advantage of the efficient routing algorithms that swarm uses for transporting and storing data.

STATUS OF THIS DOCUMENT

pss is under active development, and the first implementation is yet to be merged to the Ethereum main branch. Expect things to change.

Details on swarm routing and encryption schemes out of scope of this document.

Please refer to ARCHITECTURE.md for in-depth topics concerning pss.

CORE CONCEPTS

Three things are required to send a pss message:

  1. Encryption key
  2. Topic
  3. Message payload

Encryption key can be a public key or a 32 byte symmetric key. It must be coupled with a peer address in the node prior to sending.

Topic is the initial 4 bytes of a hash value.

Message payload is an arbitrary byte slice of data.

Upon sending the message it is encrypted and passed on from peer to peer. Any node along the route that can successfully decrypt the message is regarded as a recipient. Recipients continue to pass on the message to their peers, to make traffic analysis attacks more difficult.

The Address that is coupled with the encryption keys are used for routing the message. This does not need to be a full addresses; the network will route the message to the best of its ability with the information that is available. If no address is given (zero-length byte slice), routing is effectively deactivated, and the message is passed to all peers by all peers.

CAVEAT

pss connectivity resembles UDP. This means there is no delivery guarantee for a message. Furthermore there is no strict definition of what a connection between two nodes communicating via pss is. Reception acknowledgements and keepalive-schemes is the responsibility of the application.

Due to the inherent properties of the swarm routing algorithm, a node may receive the same message more than once. Message deduplication cannot be guaranteed by pss, and must be handled in the application layer to ensure predictable results.

EXAMPLES

The code tutorial p2p programming in go-ethereum by @nolash provides step-by-step code examples for usage of pss API with go-ethereum nodes.

A quite unpolished example using javascript is available here: https://github.com/nolash/pss-js/tree/withcrypt

API

The pss API is available through IPC and Websockets. There is currently no web3.js implementation, as this does not support message subscription.

For golang clients, please use the rpc.Client provided by the go-ethereum repository. The return values may have special types in golang. Please refer to godoc for details.

Incoming messages are encapsulated in an object (pss.APIMsg in golang) with the following members:

1. Msg (hex) - the message payload
2. Asymmetric (bool) - true if message used public key encryption
3. Key (string) - the encryption key used

2. topic (4 bytes in hex)
3. address of peer (hex)

returns:

Documentation

Overview

Pss provides devp2p functionality for swarm nodes without the need for a direct tcp connection between them.

Messages are encapsulated in a devp2p message structure `PssMsg`. These capsules are forwarded from node to node using ordinary tcp devp2p until it reaches its destination: The node or nodes who can successfully decrypt the message.

Routing of messages is done using swarm's own kademlia routing. Optionally routing can be turned off, forcing the message to be sent to all peers, similar to the behavior of the whisper protocol.

Pss is intended for messages of limited size, typically a couple of Kbytes at most. The messages themselves can be anything at all; complex data structures or non-descript byte sequences.

Documentation can be found in the README file.

For the current state and roadmap of pss development please see https://github.com/ethersphere/swarm/wiki/swarm-dev-progress.

Please report issues on https://github.com/ethersphere/go-ethereum

Feel free to ask questions in https://gitter.im/ethersphere/pss

TOPICS

An encrypted envelope of a pss messages always contains a Topic. This is pss' way of determining what action to take on the message. The topic is only visible for the node(s) who can decrypt the message.

This "topic" is not like the subject of an email message, but a hash-like arbitrary 4 byte value. A valid topic can be generated using the `pss_*ToTopic` API methods.

IDENTITY IN PSS

Pss aims to achieve perfect darkness. That means that the minimum requirement for two nodes to communicate using pss is a shared secret. This secret can be an arbitrary byte slice, or a ECDSA keypair.

Peer keys can manually be added to the pss node through its API calls `pss_setPeerPublicKey` and `pss_setSymmetricKey`. Keys are always coupled with a topic, and the keys will only be valid for these topics.

CONNECTIONS

A "connection" in pss is a purely virtual construct. There is no mechanisms in place to ensure that the remote peer actually is there. In fact, "adding" a peer involves merely the node's opinion that the peer is there. It may issue messages to that remote peer to a directly connected peer, which in turn passes it on. But if it is not present on the network - or if there is no route to it - the message will never reach its destination through mere forwarding.

When implementing the devp2p protocol stack, the "adding" of a remote peer is a prerequisite for the side actually initiating the protocol communication. Adding a peer in effect "runs" the protocol on that peer, and adds an internal mapping between a topic and that peer. It also enables sending and receiving messages using the main io-construct in devp2p - the p2p.MsgReadWriter.

Under the hood, pss implements its own MsgReadWriter, which bridges MsgReadWriter.WriteMsg with Pss.SendRaw, and deftly adds an InjectMsg method which pipes incoming messages to appear on the MsgReadWriter.ReadMsg channel.

An incoming connection is nothing more than an actual PssMsg appearing with a certain Topic. If a Handler har been registered to that Topic, the message will be passed to it. This constitutes a "new" connection if:

- The pss node never called AddPeer with this combination of remote peer address and topic, and

- The pss node never received a PssMsg from this remote peer with this specific Topic before.

If it is a "new" connection, the protocol will be "run" on the remote peer, in the same manner as if it was pre-emptively added.

Path Synopsis
simple abstraction for implementing pss functionality the pss client library aims to simplify usage of the p2p.protocols package over pss IO is performed using the ordinary p2p.MsgReadWriter interface, which transparently communicates with a pss node via RPC using websockets as transport layer, using methods in the PssAPI class in the swarm/pss package Minimal-ish usage example (requires a running pss node with websocket RPC): import ( "context" "fmt" "os" pss "github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/swarm/pss/client" "github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/p2p/protocols" "github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/p2p" "github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/swarm/pot" "github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/swarm/log" ) type FooMsg struct { Bar int } func fooHandler (msg interface{}) error { foomsg, ok := msg.(*FooMsg) if ok { log.Debug("Yay, just got a message", "msg", foomsg) } return errors.New(fmt.Sprintf("Unknown message")) } spec := &protocols.Spec{ Name: "foo", Version: 1, MaxMsgSize: 1024, Messages: []interface{}{ FooMsg{}, }, } proto := &p2p.Protocol{ Name: spec.Name, Version: spec.Version, Length: uint64(len(spec.Messages)), Run: func(p *p2p.Peer, rw p2p.MsgReadWriter) error { pp := protocols.NewPeer(p, rw, spec) return pp.Run(fooHandler) }, } func implementation() { cfg := pss.NewClientConfig() psc := pss.NewClient(context.Background(), nil, cfg) err := psc.Start() if err != nil { log.Crit("can't start pss client") os.Exit(1) } log.Debug("connected to pss node", "bzz addr", psc.BaseAddr) err = psc.RunProtocol(proto) if err != nil { log.Crit("can't start protocol on pss websocket") os.Exit(1) } addr := pot.RandomAddress() // should be a real address, of course psc.AddPssPeer(addr, spec) // use the protocol for something psc.Stop() } BUG(test): TestIncoming test times out due to deadlock issues in the swarm hive
