Information About The Key Leangth And Encryption


Recommended Posts

in the meantime:


we use crypto_box for most of the crypto. This uses curve25519, Salsa20 and poly 1305 (more info here). The key length is 32 bytes. When hex-encoded it's 64 hex digits. The key you see under "Be Added by friends" is your public key. The private key is stored (encrypted) in settings.dat (if you loose this file, you loose your account).


Each user's keypair is used during handshake when connecting to authenticate and establish an ephemeral symmetric key for that session (really, to start off the ratcheting with).
