Simple ECDH


Congratulations, you have arrived at Simple ECDH. You're here because the person who sent you this link (let's call them Alice) wants to communicate securely with you (Bob).

Alice does not trust the channel you're currently chatting on. WhatsApp, Telegram, Facebook, Tinder, Instagram, Twitter: the companies that own these chats are able to, at any point, intercept the messages that are sent back and forth.
This doesn't mean that they're doing it right now, but Alice feels like the subject she wants to talk to you is private enough so the information cannot be known by a third party.

With ECDH, you can start a secure communication in a non-secure channel. This applies to channels such as the listed above, where snooping is likely, but it is assumed that no tampering takes place.

To begin, a key exchange has to take place. Alice generates a key, and so does Bob. Both share their keys in form of links to this page on the channel, and click each other's.
Once that's done, Alice and Bob derive a shared key with which they can encrypt and decrypt messages that can be safely sent throught the unsecure channel.

Please do keep in mind that this platform should not be used extensively for day to day communication, only during brief chat sessions; for instance, to figure out a more secure place to talk.

Your public key

In order to begin the key exchange, the parties must share their public keys with each other.
Yours, the one below, was generated the first time you loaded this page, and it's stored in your browser local storage; it won't be lost if you close the window or reboot your computer.


Select the key from the list and you can start encrypting and decrypting messages.

Danger zone
