RCrypt

RCrypt is a simple RSA encryption library for your Ruby scripts. It aims at being a no-frills encrypt-decrypt solution when that is all you actually need.

Installation

gem install qhoxie-rcrypt --source http://gems.github.com

Usage

There are a few ways to set your keys:

>> RCrypt.private_key_file "path/to/id_rsa"     # you can
>> RCrypt.public_key_file "path/to/id_rsa.pub"  # specify the files
>> RCrypt.generate_key_pair                     # or generate the keys in RCrypt
=> {:public => "...", :private => "..."}

Once the keys are set, you can encrypt and decrypt.

>> ciphertext = RCrypt.encrypt "secret"
=> "xO0h20SZZ3US6BJGOyl0mnjF1FIVqax8=="
>> RCrypt.decrypt ciphertext
=> "secret"
