Package description

What is hmac-drbg?

The hmac-drbg npm package is an implementation of the HMAC-based Deterministic Random Bit Generator (DRBG) as specified in NIST SP 800-90A. It is used to generate cryptographically secure pseudo-random numbers (CSPRNG) suitable for cryptographic applications.

What are hmac-drbg's main functionalities?

Creating an HMAC-DRBG instance

This code sample demonstrates how to create a new instance of HMAC-DRBG using the SHA-256 hash function, with specified entropy, nonce, and personalization string.

const HmacDrbg = require('hmac-drbg');
const hash = require('hash.js');

const drbg = new HmacDrbg({
  hash: hash.sha256,
  entropy: 'stringsourceofentropy',
  nonce: 'nonce',
  pers: 'personalizationstring'
});

Generating random bytes

Once an HMAC-DRBG instance is created, this code sample shows how to generate 16 bytes of random data.

const randomBytes = drbg.generate(16);
console.log(randomBytes);
