Tink

Overview#

Tink is a multi-language, cross-platform, Open Source Software library that provides cryptographic APIs that are secure, easy to use correctly, and hard(er) to misuse.

Tink reduces common crypto pitfalls with user-centered design, careful implementation and code reviews, and extensive testing.

Tink developed by Google, Tink and is already being used to secure data of many products such as AdMob, Google Pay, Google Assistant, Firebase, the Android Search App, etc.

Tink is an alternative to OpenSSL and was based on BoringSSL

Tink Cryptographic Primitives

General properties of all primitives:

  • stateless (hence thread-safe)
  • copy-safe (for the parameters)
  • at least 128-bit security (with an exception for RSA)
