CipherSweet Internals

The purpose of this section is to aid the development of cross-platform libraries that speak the same protocols as CipherSweet and to accelerate third-party software security assessments.

  • Key Hierarchy explains how each field gets its own encryption key, and how each blind index created on each field gets its own distinct key for calculating hashes.
  • Packing explains how we pack multi-part messages together before passing them into a cryptographic function.
  • Field-Level Encryption explains how each field is encrypted in CipherSweet. Knowledge of the Key Hierarchy is a pre-requisite to understanding the security consequences of this feature.
  • Blind Indexing explains how blind indexes are constructed. Knowledge of the Key Hierarchy is a pre-requisite to understanding the security consequences of this feature.
