Salsa20 Class

Properties   Methods   Events   Config Settings   Errors  

The Salsa20 class can be used to encrypt and decrypt data with the XSalsa20 and Salsa20 algorithm.

Syntax

Salsa20

Remarks

The class implements XSalsa20 as well as Salsa20. The Algorithm property specifies which algorithm to use when encrypting and decryption. In addition the 12 and 8 round variants of Salsa20 are supported.

Data may be encrypted and decrypted in its entirety by calling Encrypt and Decrypt or chunk by chunk by calling EncryptBlock and DecryptBlock.

In all operations a Key and IV must be used. If IV is not set one is automatically generated. KeyPassword may be set in order to automatically generate both a Key and IV when a method is called. The same KeyPassword, or Key and IV pair are used on both sides of the operation data can be encrypted and decrypted.

Encrypt Notes

Encrypt will encrypt the specified data. The following properties are applicable:

  • IV (required)
  • Key (required)

Input and Output Properties

The class will determine the source and destination of the input and output based on which properties are set.

The order in which the input properties are checked is as follows:

When a valid source is found the search stops. The order in which the output properties are checked is as follows:

When using streams you may need to additionally set CloseInputStreamAfterProcessing or CloseOutputStreamAfterProcessing.

Additional Notes

The Key property must be set to a 256 bit (32 byte) value. This is the only allowed value for ChaCha20. If KeyPassword is set both Key and IV will be automatically generated when Encrypt is called.

The IV must be set to a 192 bit (24 byte) value when Algorithm is set to XSalsa. The IV must be set to a 64 bit (8 byte) value when Algorithm is set to Salsa.

If IV is not set a value will automatically be generated by the class when Encrypt is called.

During encryption the Progress event will fire as data is encrypted.

Encrypt Example

Salsa20 salsa = new Salsa20(); //32 Bytes salsa.KeyB = new byte[] { 0xBB, 0x76, 0x17, 0xC9, 0x05, 0x73, 0x4A, 0x8D, 0x59, 0x9D, 0x7B, 0x0D, 0x86, 0x2A, 0x03, 0x82, 0x50, 0x6A, 0x70, 0xFB, 0xA8, 0x56, 0x47, 0x1B, 0x1E, 0x68, 0x0B, 0x2B, 0x34, 0x18, 0x0F, 0xE2 }; //24 Bytes salsa.IVB = new byte[] { 0x0D, 0xE4, 0x43, 0x40, 0x29, 0xAD, 0x70, 0x7D, 0x7B, 0x32, 0xB5, 0xC7, 0x0D, 0xE4, 0x43, 0x40, 0x29, 0xAD, 0x70, 0x7D, 0x7B, 0x32, 0xB5, 0xC7 }; salsa.InputMessage = "hello salsa!"; salsa.Encrypt(); //salsa.OutputMessageB contains the byte[] of the encrypted data. The above code produces the following encrypted bytes. // { 0x06, 0xF4, 0xD9, 0xB4, 0x67, 0x31, 0x1C, 0x1E, 0x8E, 0xD6, 0xB5, 0x6B }

Encrypt Block Notes

EncryptBlock will encrypt the input data and return the encrypted block. The encrypted block will always be the same length as the decrypted data. The following properties are applicable:

  • IV (required)
  • Key (required)

InputBuffer specifies the input data to encrypt.

EncryptBlock Example

Salsa20 salsa = new Salsa20(); //32 Bytes salsa.KeyB = new byte[] { 0xBB, 0x76, 0x17, 0xC9, 0x05, 0x73, 0x4A, 0x8D, 0x59, 0x9D, 0x7B, 0x0D, 0x86, 0x2A, 0x03, 0x82, 0x50, 0x6A, 0x70, 0xFB, 0xA8, 0x56, 0x47, 0x1B, 0x1E, 0x68, 0x0B, 0x2B, 0x34, 0x18, 0x0F, 0xE2 }; //24 Bytes salsa.IVB = new byte[] { 0x0D, 0xE4, 0x43, 0x40, 0x29, 0xAD, 0x70, 0x7D, 0x7B, 0x32, 0xB5, 0xC7, 0x0D, 0xE4, 0x43, 0x40, 0x29, 0xAD, 0x70, 0x7D, 0x7B, 0x32, 0xB5, 0xC7 }; byte[] tempEncryptedBlock; //Encrypt any number of blocks of any size tempEncryptedBlock = salsa.EncryptBlock(part1); tempEncryptedBlock = salsa.EncryptBlock(part2);

Decrypt Notes

Decrypt will decrypt the specified data. The following properties are applicable:

  • IV (required)
  • Key (required)

Input and Output Properties

The class will determine the source and destination of the input and output based on which properties are set.

The order in which the input properties are checked is as follows:

When a valid source is found the search stops. The order in which the output properties are checked is as follows:

When using streams you may need to additionally set CloseInputStreamAfterProcessing or CloseOutputStreamAfterProcessing.

Additional Notes

The Key property must be set to the 256 bit (32 byte) value originally used to encrypt the data. IV must be set to the original IV value used to encrypt the data.

If using a password, KeyPassword must be set to the same KeyPassword used when encrypting the data. This will automatically generate both Key and IV when Decrypt is called.

During decryption the Progress event will fire as data is decrypted.

Decrypt Example

Salsa20 salsa = new Salsa20(); //32 Bytes salsa.KeyB = new byte[] { 0xBB, 0x76, 0x17, 0xC9, 0x05, 0x73, 0x4A, 0x8D, 0x59, 0x9D, 0x7B, 0x0D, 0x86, 0x2A, 0x03, 0x82, 0x50, 0x6A, 0x70, 0xFB, 0xA8, 0x56, 0x47, 0x1B, 0x1E, 0x68, 0x0B, 0x2B, 0x34, 0x18, 0x0F, 0xE2 }; //24 Bytes salsa.IVB = new byte[] { 0x0D, 0xE4, 0x43, 0x40, 0x29, 0xAD, 0x70, 0x7D, 0x7B, 0x32, 0xB5, 0xC7, 0x0D, 0xE4, 0x43, 0x40, 0x29, 0xAD, 0x70, 0x7D, 0x7B, 0x32, 0xB5, 0xC7 }; salsa.InputMessageB = new byte[] { 0x06, 0xF4, 0xD9, 0xB4, 0x67, 0x31, 0x1C, 0x1E, 0x8E, 0xD6, 0xB5, 0x6B }; salsa.Decrypt(); Console.WriteLine(salsa.OutputMessage); //outputs "hello salsa!"

Decrypt Block Notes

DecryptBlock will decrypt the input data and return the decrypted block. The decrypted block will always be the same length as the encrypted data. The following properties are applicable:

  • IV (required)
  • Key (required)

InputBuffer specifies the input data to decrypt.

DecryptBlock Example

Salsa20 salsa = new Salsa20(); //32 Bytes salsa.KeyB = new byte[] { 0xBB, 0x76, 0x17, 0xC9, 0x05, 0x73, 0x4A, 0x8D, 0x59, 0x9D, 0x7B, 0x0D, 0x86, 0x2A, 0x03, 0x82, 0x50, 0x6A, 0x70, 0xFB, 0xA8, 0x56, 0x47, 0x1B, 0x1E, 0x68, 0x0B, 0x2B, 0x34, 0x18, 0x0F, 0xE2 }; //24 Bytes salsa.IVB = new byte[] { 0x0D, 0xE4, 0x43, 0x40, 0x29, 0xAD, 0x70, 0x7D, 0x7B, 0x32, 0xB5, 0xC7, 0x0D, 0xE4, 0x43, 0x40, 0x29, 0xAD, 0x70, 0x7D, 0x7B, 0x32, 0xB5, 0xC7 }; byte[] tempDecryptedBlock; //Decrypt any number of blocks of any size tempDecryptedBlock = salsa.DecryptBlock(part1); tempDecryptedBlock = salsa.DecryptBlock(part2);

If set to True, when Encrypt is called the class will perform the encryption as normal and then hex encode the output. OutputMessage or OutputFile will hold hex encoded data.

If set to True, when Decrypt is called the class will expect InputMessage or InputFile to hold hex encoded data. The class will then hex decode the data and perform decryption as normal.

Data Type

Boolean

Config Method (Salsa20 Class)

Unicode (Windows)
LPWSTR Config(LPCWSTR lpszConfigurationString);
char* ipworksencrypt_salsa20_config(void* lpObj, const char* lpszConfigurationString);
QString Config(const QString& qsConfigurationString);

Remarks

Config is a generic method available in every class. It is used to set and retrieve configuration settings for the class.

These settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the class, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

To set a configuration setting named PROPERTY, you must call Config("PROPERTY=VALUE"), where VALUE is the value of the setting expressed as a string. For boolean values, use the strings "True", "False", "0", "1", "Yes", or "No" (case does not matter).

To read (query) the value of a configuration setting, you must call Config("PROPERTY"). The value will be returned as a string.

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a String value; after it returns, call the GetLastErrorCode() method to obtain its result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message.

Decrypt Method (Salsa20 Class)

Decrypts the data.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
int Decrypt();

Unicode (Windows)
INT Decrypt();
int ipworksencrypt_salsa20_decrypt(void* lpObj);
int Decrypt();

Remarks

Decrypt will decrypt the specified data. The following properties are applicable:

  • IV (required)
  • Key (required)

Input and Output Properties

The class will determine the source and destination of the input and output based on which properties are set.

The order in which the input properties are checked is as follows:

When a valid source is found the search stops. The order in which the output properties are checked is as follows:

When using streams you may need to additionally set CloseInputStreamAfterProcessing or CloseOutputStreamAfterProcessing.

Additional Notes

The Key property must be set to the 256 bit (32 byte) value originally used to encrypt the data. IV must be set to the original IV value used to encrypt the data.

If using a password, KeyPassword must be set to the same KeyPassword used when encrypting the data. This will automatically generate both Key and IV when Decrypt is called.

During decryption the Progress event will fire as data is decrypted.

Decrypt Example

Salsa20 salsa = new Salsa20(); //32 Bytes salsa.KeyB = new byte[] { 0xBB, 0x76, 0x17, 0xC9, 0x05, 0x73, 0x4A, 0x8D, 0x59, 0x9D, 0x7B, 0x0D, 0x86, 0x2A, 0x03, 0x82, 0x50, 0x6A, 0x70, 0xFB, 0xA8, 0x56, 0x47, 0x1B, 0x1E, 0x68, 0x0B, 0x2B, 0x34, 0x18, 0x0F, 0xE2 }; //24 Bytes salsa.IVB = new byte[] { 0x0D, 0xE4, 0x43, 0x40, 0x29, 0xAD, 0x70, 0x7D, 0x7B, 0x32, 0xB5, 0xC7, 0x0D, 0xE4, 0x43, 0x40, 0x29, 0xAD, 0x70, 0x7D, 0x7B, 0x32, 0xB5, 0xC7 }; salsa.InputMessageB = new byte[] { 0x06, 0xF4, 0xD9, 0xB4, 0x67, 0x31, 0x1C, 0x1E, 0x8E, 0xD6, 0xB5, 0x6B }; salsa.Decrypt(); Console.WriteLine(salsa.OutputMessage); //outputs "hello salsa!"

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

DecryptBlock Method (Salsa20 Class)

Decrypts a block and returns the decrypted data.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
char* DecryptBlock(const char* lpInputBuffer, int lenInputBuffer, int *lpSize = NULL);

Unicode (Windows)

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a Binary String value (with length lpSize); after it returns, call the GetLastErrorCode() method to obtain its result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message.

Encrypt Method (Salsa20 Class)

Encrypts the data.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
int Encrypt();

Unicode (Windows)
INT Encrypt();
int ipworksencrypt_salsa20_encrypt(void* lpObj);
int Encrypt();

Remarks

Encrypt will encrypt the specified data. The following properties are applicable:

  • IV (required)

Input and Output Properties

The class will determine the source and destination of the input and output based on which properties are set.

The order in which the input properties are checked is as follows:

When a valid source is found the search stops. The order in which the output properties are checked is as follows:

When using streams you may need to additionally set CloseInputStreamAfterProcessing or CloseOutputStreamAfterProcessing.

Additional Notes

The Key property must be set to a 256 bit (32 byte) value. This is the only allowed value for ChaCha20. If KeyPassword is set both Key and IV will be automatically generated when Encrypt is called.

The IV must be set to a 192 bit (24 byte) value when Algorithm is set to XSalsa. The IV must be set to a 64 bit (8 byte) value when Algorithm is set to Salsa.

If IV is not set a value will automatically be generated by the class when Encrypt is called.

During encryption the Progress event will fire as data is encrypted.

The above code produces the following encrypted bytes. // { 0x06, 0xF4, 0xD9, 0xB4, 0x67, 0x31, 0x1C, 0x1E, 0x8E, 0xD6, 0xB5, 0x6B }

Error Handling (C++)

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

EncryptBlock Method (Salsa20 Class)

Encrypts data and returns the encrypted block.

Syntax

ANSI (Cross Platform)
char* EncryptBlock(const char* lpInputBuffer, int lenInputBuffer, int *lpSize = NULL);

Unicode (Windows)
LPSTR EncryptBlock(LPCSTR lpInputBuffer, INT lenInputBuffer, LPINT lpSize = NULL);
char* ipworksencrypt_salsa20_encryptblock(void* lpObj, const char* lpInputBuffer, int lenInputBuffer, int *lpSize);
QByteArray EncryptBlock(QByteArray qbaInputBuffer);

Remarks

EncryptBlock will encrypt the input data and return the encrypted block. The encrypted block will always be the same length as the decrypted data. The following properties are applicable:

  • IV (required)
  • Key (required)

InputBuffer specifies the input data to encrypt.

#define EID_SALSA20_ERROR 1

virtual INT IPWORKSENCRYPT_CALL FireError(INT &iErrorCode, LPSTR &lpszDescription);
class Salsa20ErrorEventParams {
public:
  int ErrorCode();

  const QString &Description();

  int EventRetVal();
  void SetEventRetVal(int iRetVal);

class Salsa20ProgressEventParams {
public:
  qint64 BytesProcessed();

  int PercentProcessed();

  int EventRetVal();
  void SetEventRetVal(int iRetVal);
};
// To handle, connect one or more slots to this signal. void Progress(Salsa20ProgressEventParams *e);
// Or, subclass Salsa20 and override this emitter function. virtual int FireProgress(Salsa20ProgressEventParams *e) {...}

Remarks

This event is fired automatically as data is processed by the class.

The PercentProcessed parameter indicates the current status of the operation.

The BytesProcessed parameter holds the total number of bytes processed so far.

IPWorksEncryptStream Type

Syntax

IPWorksEncryptStream (declared in ipworksencrypt.h)

Remarks

The Salsa20 class includes one or more API members that take a stream object as a parameter. To use such API members, create a concrete class that implements the IPWorksEncryptStream interface and pass the Salsa20 class an instance of that concrete class.

When implementing the IPWorksEncryptStream interface's properties and methods, they must behave as described below. If the concrete class's implementation does not behave as expected, undefined behavior may occur.

Properties

CanRead Whether the stream supports reading.

bool CanRead() { return true; }
CanSeek Whether the stream supports seeking.

bool CanSeek() { return true; }
CanWrite Whether the stream supports writing.

bool CanWrite() { return true; }
Length Gets the length of the stream, in bytes.

int64 GetLength() = 0;

Methods

Close Closes the stream, releasing all resources currently allocated for it.

void Close() {}

This method is called automatically when an IPWorksEncryptStream object is deleted.

Flush Forces all data held by the stream's buffers to be written out to storage.

int Flush() { return 0; }

Must return 0 if flushing is successful; or -1 if an error occurs or the stream is closed. If the stream does not support writing, this method must do nothing and return 0.

Read Reads a sequence of bytes from the stream and advances the current position within the stream by the number of bytes read.

int Read(void* buffer, int count) = 0;

Buffer specifies the buffer to populate with data from the stream. Count specifies the number of bytes that should be read from the stream.

Must return the total number of bytes read into Buffer; this may be less than Count if that many bytes are not currently available, or 0 if the end of the stream has been reached. Must return -1 if an error occurs, if reading is not supported, or if the stream is closed.

Seek Sets the current position within the stream based on a particular point of origin.

int64 Seek(int64 offset, int seekOrigin) = 0;

Offset specifies the offset in the stream to seek to, relative to SeekOrigin. Valid values for SeekOrigin are:

  • 0: Seek from beginning.
  • 1: Seek from current position.
  • 2: Seek from end.

Must return the new position within the stream; or -1 if an error occurs, if seeking is not supported, or if the stream is closed (however, see note below). If -1 is returned, the current position within the stream must remain unchanged.

Note: If the stream is not closed, it must always be possible to call this method with an Offset of 0 and a SeekOrigin of 1 to obtain the current position within the stream, even if seeking is not otherwise supported.

Write Writes a sequence of bytes to the stream and advances the current position within the stream by the number of bytes written.

int Write(const void* buffer, int count) = 0;

Buffer specifies the buffer with data to write to the stream. Count specifies the number of bytes that should be written to the stream.

Must return the total number of bytes written to the stream; this may be less than Count if that many bytes could not be written. Must return -1 if an error occurs, if writing is not supported, or if the stream is closed.

Config Settings (Salsa20 Class)

The class accepts one or more of the following configuration settings. Configuration settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the class, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

XSalsa20 Config Settings

EncryptedDataEncoding:   The encoding of the encrypted input or output data.

This configuration setting specifies how the encrypted data is encoded (if at all).

When Encrypt is called the class will perform the encryption as normal and then encode the output as specified here. OutputMessage or OutputFile will hold the encoded data.

When Decrypt is called the class will expect InputMessage or InputFile to hold the encoded data as specified here. The class will then decode the data and perform decryption as normal.

Possible values are:

  • 0 (none - default)
  • 1 (Base64)
  • 2 (Hex)
  • 3 (Base64URL)

IncludeIV:   Whether to prepend the IV to the output data and read the IV from the input data.

If this config is true, the IV will be automatically prepended to the output data when calling Encrypt. When calling Decrypt and this setting is True, the IV is automatically extracted form the ciphertext. The default value is False.

KeyPasswordAlgorithm:   The hash algorithm used to derive the Key and IV from the KeyPassword property.

This configuration setting specifies which hash algorithm will be used when deriving the Key and IV from KeyPassword. The default value is "MD5". Possible values are:

  • "SHA1"
  • "MD2"
  • "MD5" (default)
  • "HMAC-SHA1"
  • "HMAC-SHA224"
  • "HMAC-SHA256"
  • "HMAC-SHA384"
  • "HMAC-SHA512"
  • "HMAC-MD5"
  • "HMAC-RIPEMD160"

When using any HMAC algorithm the PBKDF#2 method from RFC 2898 is used. Any other algorithm uses PBKDF#1 from the same RFC.

KeyPasswordIterations:   The number of iterations performed when using KeyPassword to derive the Key and IV.

This configuration setting specifies the number of iterations performed when using KeyPassword to calculate values for Key and IV. When using PBKDF#2 the default number of iterations is 10,000. When using PBKDF#1 the default number is 10.

KeyPasswordSalt:   The salt value used in conjunction with the KeyPassword to derive the Key and IV.

This configuration setting specifies the hex encoded salt value to be used along with the KeyPassword when calculating values for Key and IV.

SalsaRounds:   The number of rounds to perform.

This setting specifies the number of rounds to perform. The default value is 20. The class also supports 12 and 8 round variants which offer better performance but reduce overall security. This setting is only applicable when Algorithm is set to saSALSA20. Possible values are:

  • 20 (default - recommended)
  • 12
  • 8

Base Config Settings

BuildInfo:   Information about the product's build.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the product's build.

CodePage:   The system code page used for Unicode to Multibyte translations.

The default code page is Unicode UTF-8 (65001).

LicenseInfo:   Information about the current license.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the license this instance of a class is using. It will return the following information:

  • Product: The product the license is for.
  • Product Key: The key the license was generated from.
  • License Source: Where the license was found (e.g., RuntimeLicense, License File).
  • License Type: The type of license installed (e.g., Royalty Free, Single Server).
  • Last Valid Build: The last valid build number for which the license will work.
MaskSensitive:   Whether sensitive data is masked in log messages.

In certain circumstances it may be beneficial to mask sensitive data, like passwords, in log messages. Set this to true to mask sensitive data. The default is false.

This setting only works on these classes: AS3Receiver, AS3Sender, Atom, Client(3DS), FTP, FTPServer, IMAP, OFTPClient, SSHClient, SCP, Server(3DS), Sexec, SFTP, SFTPServer, SSHServer, TCPClient, TCPServer.

ProcessIdleEvents:   Whether the class uses its internal event loop to process events when the main thread is idle.

If set to False, the class will not fire internal idle events. Set this to False to use the class in a background thread on Mac OS. By default, this setting is True.

SelectWaitMillis:   The length of time in milliseconds the class will wait when DoEvents is called if there are no events to process.

If there are no events to process when DoEvents is called, the class will wait for the amount of time specified here before returning. The default value is 20.

UseInternalSecurityAPI:   Tells the class whether or not to use the system security libraries or an internal implementation.

When set to false, the class will use the system security libraries by default to perform cryptographic functions where applicable.

Setting this setting to true tells the class to use the internal implementation instead of using the system security libraries.

On Windows, this setting is set to false by default. On Linux/macOS, this setting is set to true by default.

To use the system security libraries for Linux, OpenSSL support must be enabled. For more information on how to enable OpenSSL, please refer to the OpenSSL Notes section.
