Krypto is a cryptography library for Multiplatform Kotlin.


Krypto provides a SecureRandom object that extends the kotlin.random.Random class, but it generates cryptographic secure values. It is a singleton, and you cannot provide an initial seed.

Instead of a pseudo-random and reproducible, its result values are fully random, making it suitable for cryptographic purposes, and not suitable for reproductible results.

It uses SecureRandom on the JVM + PRNGFixes on Android. On Native POSIX (including Linux, macOS and iOS), it uses /dev/urandom, on Windows BCryptGenRandom

Using the SecureRandom instance

Since it is an object, you can use it directly as a Random instance:

val random: Random = SecureRandom

Seeding extra bytes

In addition to the standard kotlin Random interface, SecureRandom provides a method for seeding extra random bytes.

val bytes = byteArrayOf(1, 2, 3)

Hash (MD4/MD5/SHA1/SHA256/SHA512)

fun ByteArray.hash(algo: HashFactory): ByteArray
fun ByteArray.md4()
fun ByteArray.md5()
fun ByteArray.sha1()
fun ByteArray.sha256()
fun ByteArray.sha512()

object MD4 : HashFactory
object MD5 : HashFactory
object SHA1 : HashFactory
object SHA256 : HashFactory
object SHA512 : HashFactory

open class HashFactory() {
    fun create(): Hash

fun HashFactory.digest(data: ByteArray): ByteArray

abstract class Hash {
    val chunkSize: Int
    val digestSize: Int
    fun reset(): Hash
    fun update(data: ByteArray, offset: Int, count: Int): Hash
    fun digest(): ByteArray
    fun digestOut(out: ByteArray)




object AES {
    fun decryptAes128Cbc(encryptedMessage: ByteArray, cipherKey: ByteArray): ByteArray
    fun encryptEes128Cbc(plainMessage: ByteArray, cipherKey: ByteArray): ByteArray
