New hack CryptDataPlugin, created by plang

Plugin that allows you to store data in your Trac wiki in a safe way, by using RSA public/private encryption.


How does it work?

When storing the data on the server, it is encoded with your RSA public key. When the user wants to decode the data, he receives the RSA encrypted data along with your AES encrypted private key. He has first to decode the private key with the passphrase he has to remember, and then use it to decode the RSA encrypted data.

How can I use it?

You use it like a Trac Macro, like so:

[[CPassword(this is my confidential password)]]

When saving your trac page, it gets transformed into the following:


This macro gets expanded at runtime into some javascript magic that prompts the user for the passphrase, decrypts the data, and shows it.
