# Sign-In with Ethereum 

Elixir library to enable [Sign-In with Ethereum]( message validation.

Full documentation found at <>.

This library provides functions for parsing and validating [SIWE](h message strings and their corresponding signatures.

## Requirements:

Elixir at version `1.10` or higher using OTP 23 or greater. Rustler officially supports the last 3 minor versions of Elixir, which we also suggest for best experience.

A Rust compiler at version `1.56` or higher so that 2021 edition libraries can be compiled.

## Installation

The package can be installed by adding `siwe` to your list of dependencies in `mix.exs`:

def deps do
    {:siwe, "~> 0.3"}
## Example

To see how this works in `iex`, clone this repository and from the root run:
$ mix deps.get

Then create two files
``` wants you to sign in with your Ethereum account:

With Ethereum Example Statement

Version: 1
Chain ID: 1
Nonce: ToTaLLyRanDOM
Issued At: 2021-12-17T00:38:39.834Z

then run 
$ iex -S mix
Once in iex, you can then run the following to see the result:
iex> {:ok, msg} ="./message.txt")
iex> {:ok, sig} ="./signature.txt")
iex> Siwe.parse_if_valid(String.trim(msg), String.trim(sig))
{:ok, %{
  __struct__: Siwe,
  address: "0xfA151B5453CE69ABf60f0dbdE71F6C9C5868800E",
  chain_id: "1",
  domain: "",
  expiration_time: nil,
  issued_at: "2021-12-17T00:38:39.834Z",
  nonce: "ToTaLLyRanDOM",
  not_before: nil,
  request_id: nil,
  resources: [],
  statement: "Sign-In With Ethereum Example Statement",
  uri: "",
  version: "1"

Any valid SIWE message and signature pair can be substituted.The functions described below can also be tested with `msg`, `sig`, or a value set to the result `Siwe.parse_if_valid`.

## API Overview
This library deals with three different types of input:

1) SIWE message strings.
2) Signatures of SIWE message strings.
3) A parsed SIWE message which is defined as:

  defmodule Message do
    defstruct domain: "",
      address: "",
      statement: "",
      uri: "",
      version: "",
      chain_id: "",
      nonce: "",
      issued_at: "",
      expiration_time: nil, # or a string datetime
      not_before: nil, # or a string datetime
      request_id: nil, # or string
      resources: []

The most basic functions are `parse` and `to_str` which translate a SIWE message string to a parsed SIWE message and back (respectively). To simplify using the variables from the above example:

iex> {:ok, parsed} = Siwe.parse(String.trim(msg))
iex> {:ok, str2} = Siwe.to_str(parsed) 
iex> str2 == String.trim(msg)

Once parsed, the `Message` can be validated. 

- `validate_time` returns true if current time is after the `Message`'s `not_before` field (if it exists) and before the `Message`'s `expiration_time` field (if it exists). 

- `validate_sig` takes the `Message` and a corresponding `signature` and returns true if the `Message`'s `address` field would produce the `signature` if it had signed the `Message`'s string form.

- `validate` returns true only if both `validate_time` and `validate_sig` would.

iex> Siwe.validate_sig(parsed, String.trim(sig))
iex> Siwe.validate_time(parsed)
iex> Siwe.validate(parsed, String.trim(sig))

`parse_if_valid` is an optimized helper function which takes a SIWE message string and a `signature` then returns a parsed `Message` only if the `signature` matches and the current time is after the `Message`'s `not_before` field (if it exists) and before the `Message`'s `expiration_time` field (if it exists). 

iex> Siwe.generate_nonce()

Another helper, `generate_nonce` function is provided to create alphanumeric [a-z, A-Z, 1-9] nonces compliant with SIWE's spec, used like so:
This is useful for servers using SIWE for their own authentication systems.
## Disclaimer 

Our Elixir library for Sign-In with Ethereum has not yet undergone a formal security 
audit. We welcome continued feedback on the usability, architecture, and security 
of this implementation.
