Keystore.swift makes it easy to extract private keys from Ethereum keystore files and generate keystore files from existing private keys.
This library belongs to our Swift Crypto suite. For a pure Swift Ethereum Web3 library check out Web3.swift!
Check the usage below or look through the repositories tests.
Keystore is available through CocoaPods. To install
it, simply add the following line to your
Keystore is compatible with Carthage, a decentralized dependency manager that builds your dependencies and provides you with binary frameworks. To install it, simply add the following line to your
You will also have to install the dependencies, which can be found in our Cartfile.
Swift Package Manager
Keystore is compatible with Swift Package Manager v4 (Swift 4 and above). Simply add it to the dependencies in your
dependencies: [ .package(url: "https://github.com/Boilertalk/Keystore.swift.git", from: "0.2.0") ]
And then add it to your target dependencies:
targets: [ .target( name: "MyProject", dependencies: ["Keystore"]), .testTarget( name: "MyProjectTests", dependencies: ["MyProject"]) ]
After the installation you can import
Keystore in your
To extract a private key from an existing keystore file, just do the following.
import Keystore let decoder = JSONDecoder() let keystoreData: Data = ... // Load keystore data from file? let keystore = try decoder.decode(Keystore.self, from: keystoreData) let password = "your_super_secret_password" let privateKey = try keystore.privateKey(password: password) print(privateKey) // Your decrypted private key
And to generate a keystore file from an existing private key, your code should look a little bit like the following.
let privateKey: [UInt8] = ... // Get your private key as a byte array let password = "your_super_secret_password" let keystore = try Keystore(privateKey: privateKey, password: password) let keystoreJson = try JSONEncoder().encode(keystore) print(String(data: keystoreJson, encoding: .utf8)) // Your encrypted keystore as a json string
