CrOTP - One Time Passwords for Crystal

CrOTP

The Crystal One Time Password library. Use this to generate HOTP or TOTP codes for two factor authentication.

Installation

Add this to your application's shard.yml:

dependencies:
  crotp:
    github: philnash/crotp

Usage

HOTP

require "crotp"

hotp = CrOTP::HOTP.new("secret")
counter = 1

# Generate a token
token = hotp.generate(counter)
# => "533881"

# Verify code
result = hotp.verify(token, counter)
# => true

TOTP

require "crotp"

totp = CrOTP::TOTP.new("secret")

# Generate a code at a specific time stamp (by default, #generate will make a
# code using Time.now)
token = totp.generate(at: 1484007247)
# => "020567"

# Verify code at a specific time stamp
result = totp.verify(token, at: 1484007247)
# => true

# Verify code at different time stamp, with allowed drift
result = totp.verify(token, at: 1484007299, allowed_drift: 1)
# => true

# Verify code at different time stamp, outside allowed drift
result = totp.verify(token, at: 1484007300, allowed_drift: 1)
# => false

TOTP hashing algorithms

According to RFC 6238 section 1.2:

TOTP implementations MAY use HMAC-SHA-256 or HMAC-SHA-512 functions, based on SHA-256 or SHA-512 hash functions, instead of the HMAC-SHA-1 function that has been specified for the HOTP computation in RFC4226.

To use either SHA-256 or SHA-512 as the hashing function, initialise your CrOTP::TOTP object with the algorithm you want:

require "crotp"

totp = CrOTP::TOTP.new("secret", algorithm: OpenSSL::Algorithm::SHA512)

Note: authenticator applications may ignore the algorithm parameter when you encode your secret in a URL/QR code as below.

Authenticator applications

To share secrets with an authenticator application, like Authy or Google Authenticator you need a URI that you can share as a QR code. The implementation details for the URI are in the Google Authenticator wiki.

Here is how you can get the URI and, in case your user can't scan the code, the base 32 representation of the secret.

HOTP

# For HOTP you need the initial counter and an issuer
puts hotp.authenticator_uri(initial_counter: 0, issuer: "Test app")
# => otpauth://hotp/Test%20app?secret=ONSWG4TFOQ&algorithm=SHA1&counter=0&digits=6&issuer=Test%20app

# You can add a user account detail too, normally an email address or username, that shows up in the authenticator app
puts hotp.authenticator_uri(initial_counter: 0, issuer: "Test app", user: "philnash@example.com")
# => otpauth://hotp/Test%20app:philnash%40example.com?secret=ONSWG4TFOQ&algorithm=SHA1&counter=0&digits=6&issuer=Test%20app

TOTP

# For TOTP you only need an issuer
puts totp.authenticator_uri(issuer: "Test app")
# => otpauth://totp/Test%20app?secret=ONSWG4TFOQ&algorithm=SHA1&period=30&digits=6&issuer=Test%20app

# You can add a user detail here too
puts totp.authenticator_uri(issuer: "Test app", user: "philnash@example.com")
# => otpauth://totp/Test%20app:philnash%40example.com?secret=ONSWG4TFOQ&algorithm=SHA1&period=30&digits=6&issuer=Test%20app

Base 32 secret

puts hotp.base32_secret
# => ONSWG4TFOQ

puts totp.base32_secret
# => ONSWG4TFOQ

You can see and run these examples and more in example/crotp.cr.

Todo

  • Basic HOTP and TOTP generation and verification
  • Rewrite int_to_bytes and extract from CrOTP::OTP
  • Verifying a token over a window of counters/time
  • Google Authenticator otpauth URI generation
  • Ability to choose algorithm (currently only sha1)
  • Ability to choose size of period in TOTP
  • Example application using Kemal
  • Much more documentation
