README

FlashPaper

A one-time encrypted zero-knowledge password/secret sharing application focused on simplicity and security. No database or complicated set-up required.

Demo

Installation

Docker (Recommended)

  1. Download and extract the latest release of FlashPaper
  2. Edit the docker-compose.yml file with your customizations
  3. Run docker-compose up -d to start FlashPaper
  4. Set up a reverse-proxy in front of FlashPaper that terminates SSL/TLS

Traditional

Requirements: PHP 7.0+ and a web server

  1. Download and extract the latest release of FlashPaper to the document root of your web server
  2. Copy settings.example.php to settings.php and make customizations to that file
  3. Disable access logging in your web server's configuration so nothing sensitive (IP addresses, user agent strings, timestamps, etc) are logged to disk

How It Works

Submitting Secret

  1. <random>--secrets.sqlite sqlite database created (if it doesn't already exist)
  2. <random>--aes-static.key randomized 256-bit AES static key created (if one doesn't exist already)
  3. Random 256-bit AES key created
  4. Random 128-bit IV created
  5. Random 64-bit ID created
  6. ID + AES key hashed with bcrypt
  7. Submitted text encrypted with AES-256-CBC using AES key and random IV
  8. Ciphertext now encrypted with AES-256-CBC using static AES key and random IV
  9. ID and AES key joined (known as k)
  10. Random prune date/time generated using prune->min_days/max_days
  11. ID, IV, bcrypt hash, ciphertext, and prune epoch stored in DB
  12. k value returned to user in one-time URL

Retrieving Secret

  1. k value removed from URL
  2. k value split into two parts: ID and AES key
  3. IV, bcrypt hash, ciphertext looked up in DB with ID from k
  4. k bcrypt hash compared against bcrypt hash from DB (prevents tampering of URL)
  5. Ciphertext decrypted with static AES key and IV
  6. Ciphertext decrypted with AES key from k and IV
  7. Entry deleted from DB
  8. Decrypted text sent to user

Settings

prune:

  • enabled: Turn on/off auto-pruning of old secrets from the database upon page load
  • min_days/max_days: When a secret is submitted, a random date/time is generated between min_days and max_days in the future. After that date/time has elapsed, the secret will be pruned from the database if enabled is set to true. This is to prevent your database from being filled with secrets that are never retrieved. NOTE: Even if enabled is set to false, the prune value will still be generated and stored in the database, but secrets will not be pruned unless enabled is switched to true.
