Description

It is compatible with grempe/session-keys-js which can generates identical IDs and crypto keys using Javascript when given the same username and passphrase values. Both libraries have extensive tests to ensure they remain interoperable.

The strength of the system lies in the fact that the keypairs are derived from passing an identifier such as a username or email address, and a high-entropy passphrase through the SHA256 cryptographic one-way hash function, and then 'stretching' that username/password into strong key material using the scrypt key derivation function.

For an overview of the security design, please see the README for the companion project grempe/session-keys-js @ https://github.com/grempe/session-keys-js
