Package description

What is browserify-sign?

The browserify-sign package is a part of the crypto-browserify project, which aims to emulate Node.js's crypto module for use in the browser. It specifically implements the sign and verify functionality for RSA and ECDSA, which are cryptographic algorithms used for digital signatures.

What are browserify-sign's main functionalities?

Signing data

This feature allows you to create digital signatures using RSA or ECDSA. The code sample demonstrates how to sign some data using an RSA private key.

const createSign = require('browserify-sign').createSign;
const sign = createSign('RSA-SHA256');
sign.update('some data to sign');
const privateKey = '...'; // Your RSA private key
const signature = sign.sign(privateKey, 'base64');

Verifying signatures

This feature enables you to verify digital signatures to ensure data integrity and authenticity. The code sample shows how to verify a signature using an RSA public key.

const createVerify = require('browserify-sign').createVerify;
const verify = createVerify('RSA-SHA256');
verify.update('some data to sign');
const publicKey = '...'; // Your RSA public key
const signature = '...'; // The signature to verify
const isValid = verify.verify(publicKey, signature, 'base64');
