A 1-1 end-to-end encrypted internet pipe powered by Hyperswarm and Noise
npm install hyperbeam
const Hyperbeam = require('hyperbeam') // 'neznr3z3j44l7q7sgynbzpdrdlpausurbpcmqvwupmuoidolbopa' is 32-byte unique passphrase // to find the other side of your pipe. // once the other peer is discovered it is used to derive a noise keypair as well. const beam = new Hyperbeam('neznr3z3j44l7q7sgynbzpdrdlpausurbpcmqvwupmuoidolbopa') // to generate a passphrase, leave the constructor empty and hyperbeam will generate one for you // const beam = new Hyperbeam() // beam.key // <-- your passphrase // make a little chat app process.stdin.pipe(beam).pipe(process.stdout)
Part of the Hyperspace CLI, hyp
Provided here as a standalone CLI as well.
First install it
npm install -g hyperbeam
Then on one machine run
echo 'hello world' | hyperbeam
This will generate a phrase, eg "neznr3z3j44l7q7sgynbzpdrdlpausurbpcmqvwupmuoidolbopa". Then on another machine run
# will print "hello world" hyperbeam neznr3z3j44l7q7sgynbzpdrdlpausurbpcmqvwupmuoidolbopa
That's it! Happy piping.
const stream = new Hyperbeam([key][, options])
Make a new Hyperbeam duplex stream.
Will auto connect to another peer using the same key with an end to end encrypted tunnel.
When the other peer writes it's emitted as
data on this stream.
Likewise when you write to this stream it's emitted as
data on the other peers stream.
If you do not pass a
key into the constructor (the passphrase), one will be generated and put on
dht: A DHT instance. Defaults to a new instance.
The passphrase used by the stream for connection.
