  • Migrating from Cipher to Cipheriv

    Posted December 19, 2023  in Node.js

    I have a Firebase project that uses a Firebase function to generate a URL containing encrypted data and another function to decrypt the data when someone invokes the URL (opens it in a browser). The functions use the Node.js Crypto library to do the encrypting and decrypting and I noticed recently in the library's docs that the library's createCipher method was deprecated and I needed to migrate my project to use createCipheriv instead. In this post, I demonstrate how I did it.
