var AdvancedEnableInlining = true

AdvancedEnableInlining enables automatically inlining keys shorter than 42 bytes into the peer ID (using the "identity" multihash function).

WARNING: This flag will likely be set to false in the future and eventually be removed in favor of using a hash function specified by the key itself. See:

DO NOT change this flag unless you know what you're doing.

This currently defaults to true for backwards compatibility but will likely be set to false by default when an upgrade path is determined.

The encoded peer ID can either be a CID of a key or a raw multihash (identity or sha256-256).

func FromCid(c cid.Cid) (ID, error)

FromCid converts a CID to a peer ID, if possible.

func IDFromBytes

func IDFromBytes(b []byte) (ID, error)

func (id ID) ShortString() string

ShortString prints out the peer ID.

type PeerRecord

type PeerRecord struct {
	// PeerID is the ID of the peer this record pertains to.
	PeerID ID

	// Addrs contains the public addresses of the peer this record pertains to.
	Addrs []ma.Multiaddr

	// Seq is a monotonically-increasing sequence counter that's used to order
	// PeerRecords in time. The interval between Seq values is unspecified,
	// but newer PeerRecords MUST have a greater Seq value than older records
	// for the same peer.
	Seq uint64

PeerRecord contains information that is broadly useful to share with other peers, either through a direct exchange (as in the libp2p identify protocol), or through a Peer Routing provider, such as a DHT.

Currently, a PeerRecord contains the public listen addresses for a peer, but this is expected to expand to include other information in the future.

PeerRecords are ordered in time by their Seq field. Newer PeerRecords must have greater Seq values than older records. The NewPeerRecord function will create a PeerRecord with a timestamp-based Seq value. The other PeerRecord fields should be set by the caller:

rec := peer.NewPeerRecord()
rec.PeerID = aPeerID
rec.Addrs = someAddrs

Alternatively, you can construct a PeerRecord struct directly and use the TimestampSeq helper to set the Seq field:

rec := peer.PeerRecord{PeerID: aPeerID, Addrs: someAddrs, Seq: peer.TimestampSeq()}

Failing to set the Seq field will not result in an error, however, a PeerRecord with a Seq value of zero may be ignored or rejected by other peers.

PeerRecords are intended to be shared with other peers inside a signed routing.Envelope, and PeerRecord implements the routing.Record interface to facilitate this.

To share a PeerRecord, first call Sign to wrap the record in an Envelope and sign it with the local peer's private key:

rec := &PeerRecord{PeerID: myPeerId, Addrs: myAddrs}
envelope, err := rec.Sign(myPrivateKey)

The resulting record.Envelope can be marshalled to a []byte and shared publicly. As a convenience, the MarshalSigned method will produce the Envelope and marshal it to a []byte in one go:

rec := &PeerRecord{PeerID: myPeerId, Addrs: myAddrs}
recordBytes, err := rec.MarshalSigned(myPrivateKey)

To validate and unmarshal a signed PeerRecord from a remote peer, "consume" the containing envelope, which will return both the routing.Envelope and the inner Record. The Record must be cast to a PeerRecord pointer before use:

envelope, untypedRecord, err := ConsumeEnvelope(envelopeBytes, PeerRecordEnvelopeDomain)
if err != nil {
peerRec := untypedRecord.(*PeerRecord)

func NewPeerRecord

func NewPeerRecord() *PeerRecord

NewPeerRecord returns a PeerRecord with a timestamp-based sequence number. The returned record is otherwise empty and should be populated by the caller.

func PeerRecordFromAddrInfo

func PeerRecordFromAddrInfo(info AddrInfo) *PeerRecord

PeerRecordFromAddrInfo creates a PeerRecord from an AddrInfo struct. The returned record will have a timestamp-based sequence number.

func PeerRecordFromProtobuf

func PeerRecordFromProtobuf(msg *pb.PeerRecord) (*PeerRecord, error)

PeerRecordFromProtobuf creates a PeerRecord from a protobuf PeerRecord struct.

func (*PeerRecord) Codec

func (r *PeerRecord) Codec() []byte

Codec is a binary identifier for the PeerRecord type. It is constant for all PeerRecord instances.

func (*PeerRecord) Domain

func (r *PeerRecord) Domain() string

Domain is used when signing and validating PeerRecords contained in Envelopes. It is constant for all PeerRecord instances.

func (*PeerRecord) Equal

func (r *PeerRecord) Equal(other *PeerRecord) bool

Equal returns true if the other PeerRecord is identical to this one.

func (*PeerRecord) MarshalRecord

func (r *PeerRecord) MarshalRecord() (res []byte, err error)

MarshalRecord serializes a PeerRecord to a byte slice. This method is called automatically when constructing a routing.Envelope using Seal or PeerRecord.Sign.

func (*PeerRecord) ToProtobuf

func (r *PeerRecord) ToProtobuf() (*pb.PeerRecord, error)

ToProtobuf returns the equivalent Protocol Buffer struct object of a PeerRecord.

func (*PeerRecord) UnmarshalRecord

func (r *PeerRecord) UnmarshalRecord(bytes []byte) (err error)

UnmarshalRecord parses a PeerRecord from a byte slice. This method is called automatically when consuming a record.Envelope whose PayloadType indicates that it contains a PeerRecord. It is generally not necessary or recommended to call this method directly.
