Cpass

🔐 Simple secure string password convertor

Cpass is simplified secured password two-ways encryption sub package port for Gosip.

By default, Cpass uses Machine ID as an encryption key so a secret hash can only be decrypted on a machine where it was generated.

Cpass's approach is appropriate in local development scenarios. The main goal is "not to show raw secret while presenting a desktop" or "not to commit raw secret by an incident to code source".

Installation

go get github.com/koltyakov/gosip/cpass

Convertor

package main
​
import (
"flag"
"fmt"
​
"github.com/koltyakov/gosip/cpass"
)
​
func main() {
​
var rawSecret string
​
flag.StringVar(&rawSecret, "secret", "", "Raw secret string")
flag.Parse()
​
crypt := cpass.Cpass("")
​
secret, _ := crypt.Encode(rawSecret)
fmt.Println(secret)
​
}

Encrypt secrets

go run ./ -secret "MyP@s$word"
#> -lywbAGD4iPYdJXDxLAQoMUbfBXBIQR2UZYl

When use result token/hash as a secret in private.json file(s).

From sandbox

Another option would be installing cpass from sandbox:

go install github.com/koltyakov/gosip-sandbox/samples/cpass

And using cpass as a CLI, with no parameters the secret can be provided in a masked form without keeping it in console history:

$ cpass
Password to encode: ********
