react native plugin for peer to peer encryption and decryption using RSA keys

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import akeoReactNativeRsaEncryption from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/@akeo/react-native-rsa-encryption';



This plugin aims to provide peer to peer security. By using this plugin user can generate public and private key pairs. Public key can be sent over the network to the server so that server can encrypt response parameters using client's public key and client can decrypt that reponse using own private key and vice versa. It also has one more layer of security using AES secret key, the string will be encrypt using this key and secret key will be encrypted using public key, hence if server/client need to decrypt the string, secret key need to be decrypt using private key and string can be decrypt using decrypted secret key.

Getting started

$ npm install @akeo/react-native-rsa-encryption --save

Mostly automatic installation

$ react-native link @akeo/react-native-rsa-encryption

Manual installation


  1. In XCode, in the project navigator, right click LibrariesAdd Files to [your project's name]
  2. Go to node_modules@akeo/react-native-rsa-encryption and add RNRsaEncryption.xcodeproj
  3. In XCode, in the project navigator, select your project. Add libRNRsaEncryption.a to your project's Build PhasesLink Binary With Libraries
  4. Run your project (Cmd+R)<


  1. Open up android/app/src/main/java/[...]/MainActivity.java
  • Add import com.reactlibrary.RNRsaEncryptionPackage; to the imports at the top of the file
  • Add new RNRsaEncryptionPackage() to the list returned by the getPackages() method
  1. Append the following lines to android/settings.gradle:
    include ':@akeo_react-native-rsa-encryption'
    project(':@akeo_react-native-rsa-encryption').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, 	'../node_modules/@akeo/react-native-rsa-encryption/android')
  2. Insert the following lines inside the dependencies block in android/app/build.gradle:
      compile project(':@akeo_react-native-rsa-encryption')


import RNRsaEncryption from '@akeo/react-native-rsa-encryption';

// To generate key pairs, (it will return public key in base64 encoded format)
RNRsaEncryption.generateKeyPair((response) => {
}, (error) => {

// To encrypt a string, (it will return encrypted string with public key encrypted aes secret key)
RNRsaEncryption.encryptString("string to be encrypt", "public key base 64 encoded format",(response) => {
}, (error) => {

// To decrypt a string, (it will return decrypted string)
RNRsaEncryption.decryptString("encrypted string", "encrypted secret key",(response) => {
}, (error) => {
