Deterministic Encryption for Database Primary Keys

Explore the benefits of deterministic encryption for database keys, enhancing security while maintaining unique constraints. This post covers how it functions, compares to traditional methods, and offers practical tips for successful implementation.

Using a native cryptography library in Flutter

Flutter is a Google UI toolkit for writing cross-platform mobile applications. Using native code from Flutter is now easier than ever by using the dart:ffi library that is currently in beta. In this article we demonstrate why you’d want to use native code, and a practical example of doing so using the libsodium cryptography library.

[DRAFT] Random Permutations With Constant Space

You want to iterate over a random ordering of items without storing or needing to lookup already-used items. We can borrow an algorithm from cryptography called the Feistel Network to generate random permutations in constant space and time. Applications include generating unique gift card codes or credit card numbers for your customers without exposing already-generated codes/numbers, and efficiently implementing the fizzlefade effect from Wolfenstein 3D.
