Turing

Overview

A pure go implementation of the Turing stream cipher, as detailed in "Turing: a Fast Stream Cipher" by Gregory G. Rose and Philip Hawkes. Please don't use this cipher if your goal is to implement strong encryption. This package was written to interoperate with legacy applications.

API Promise

The API is stable. Changes are guaranteed to remain backwards-compatible.

Usage

Please see the godocs for usage details.

Documentation

Overview

Package turing implements the Turing stream cipher, as defined in Gregory G. Rose and Philip Hawkes "Turing: a Fast Stream Cipher". The package API mimics that of the crypto/rc4 package.

Types

type Cipher

type Cipher struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields
}

Cipher is an instance of the Turing cipher using a particular key/IV pair

func NewCipher

func NewCipher(key []byte, iv []byte) (cipher *Cipher, err error)

NewCipher creates and returns a new Cipher. The key size must be a multiple of 4 bytes and must be between 8 and 32 bytes. The IV is optional and may be omitted by specifying a nil value. If the IV is present, the size must be a multiple of 4 bytes. The combined size of the key and IV must not exceed 48 bytes. These restrictions are part of the algorithm specs.

func (*Cipher) Reset

func (cipher *Cipher) Reset()

Reset makes a best effort attempt to remove the key data from memory. However, go's garbage-collecting semantics make it impossible to provide an absolute guarantee that the key data is completely unreachable.

func (*Cipher) XORKeyStream

func (cipher *Cipher) XORKeyStream(dst, src []byte)

XORKeyStream sets dst to the result of XORing src with the key stream. Dst and src may be the same slice but otherwise should not overlap.

type KeySizeError

type KeySizeError string

KeySizeError is used to indicate problems with provided key/IV values. See the NewCipher for key/IV requirements.

func (KeySizeError) Error

func (k KeySizeError) Error() string
