clinacl

A command line tool for playing with the NaCl cryptography library, with support for Keybase-style signatures. This is a toy, so please don't feed it any private data or rely on it in production.

Use pip to install it:

pip install clinacl

Note that depending on how Python is set up on your machine, you might need to use sudo with that.

Examples

NaCl Symmetric Encryption

$ plaintext="Release the hounds."
$ key=$(clinacl secretgen)
$ echo $key

$ nonce="deadbeefdeadbeefdeadbeefdeadbeefdeadbeefdeadbeef"
$ ciphertext=$(echo $plaintext | clinacl encrypt $key --nonce $nonce)
$ echo $ciphertext

$ echo $ciphertext | clinacl decrypt $key
Release the hounds.
