Blind Indexing

A blind index is calculated by using hash functions and/or key-stretching algorithms of the plaintext, using an appropriate key.

Blind indexes come in two modes (slow, fast). Both variants accept a parameter called the "bit length", which affects the truncation length of the resulting cryptographic output. Additionally, if truncated to a bit length that is not an even multiple of 8, it will clear the least significant bits in the trailing byte.

FIPSCrypto

  • Fast: PBKDF2-SHA384 with 1 iteration * Accepts three arguments: 1. The plaintext 2. The key for this blind index 3. The bit length
  • Slow: PBKDF2-SHA384 with a tunable number of iterations (default: 50,000). * Accepts four arguments: 1. The plaintext 2. The key for this blind index 3. The bit length 4. An array of configuration options that can override the number of iterations for this particular index.

ModernCrypto

  • Fast: BLAKE2b * Accepts three arguments: 1. The plaintext 2. The key for this blind index 3. The bit length
  • Slow: Argon2id (memlimit = 32MB, opslimit = 4) * Accepts four arguments: 1. The plaintext 2. The key for this blind index 3. The bit length 4. An array of configuration options that can override the Argon2id paramters for this particular index.
