I wanted to take a moment to investigate two more methods: generateKey() and exportKey(). The generation of a good cryptographic key is fairly fundamental. I wrote up a short demo app, to demonstrate how the two …Continue reading "How to generate keys with the Web Cryptography API"
The W3C has been working on a Web Cryptography API for a while, now. The current version (11 December 2014) is their “Candidate Recommendation”. As such, I would not necessarily consider it fully ready for primetime but that does not mean that we can not play around with it a bit. I figured that today, we should …Continue reading "Generating random numbers with the Web Cryptography API"
