๐Ÿ” Secure Property Storage

Helps you define secure storages for your properties using Swift property wrappers.

Twitter Swift [License](LICENSE) Swift Package Manager Carthage Bitrise Quality Maintainability Coverage Documentation

๐ŸŒŸ Features

All keys are hashed using SHA512 and all values are encrypted using AES-GCM to keep user information safe, auto*magic*ally. Symmetric key is stored in Keychain in a totally secure way.

๐Ÿ’ Basic usage


This property wrapper will store your property in UserDefaults using StoreKey (any String but i recommend you a String typed enum). Optionally, you can assign a default value to the property that will be secure stored at initialization.

var yourProperty: YourType? = yourDefaultValueIfNeeded

[UserDefaultsStorage](Sources/UserDefault/UserDefaultsStorage.swift) is also available, a subclass of UserDefaults with all the security provided by this library, where you can customize suite name.


This property wrapper will store your property in Keychain using StoreKey.

var yourProperty: YourType? = yourDefaultValueIfNeeded

As UserDefaultsStorage, [KeychainStorage](Sources/Keychain/KeychainStorage.swift) is also available, where you can customize access, group and synchronize it with iCloud.


This property wrapper will store your property in a memory singleton, every property with the same wrapper and key can access or modify the value from wherever it is.

var yourProperty: YourType? = yourDefaultValueIfNeeded

As KeychainStorage, [SingletonStorage](Sources/Singleton/SingletonStorage.swift) is also available.


This property wrapper is similar to @Singleton but, together with @Register, will inject your dependencies. More details in [Dependency Injection usage](#-dependency-injection-usage) guide.

var yourDependency: YourProtocol?

As SingletonStorage, [InjectStorage](Sources/Inject/InjectStorage.swift) is also available.


This is a custom wrapper, you can define your own [Storage](Sources/Storage/Storage.swift) protocol implementation.

@Store(<#YourStorage#>, <#StoreKey#>)
var yourProperty: YourType? = yourDefaultValueIfNeeded

As InjectStorage, [DelegatedStorage](Sources/Storage/DelegatedStorage.swift) is also available with all the magic of this library.

๐Ÿง™โ€โ™‚๏ธ Codable usage

If your property conforms Codable protocol, just add Codable keyword as prefix of your property wrapper.

  • @CodableUserDefault
  • @CodableKeychain
  • @CodableSingleton
  • @CodableStore

๐Ÿฅก Unwrapped usage

To avoid continually unwrapping your property, just add Unwrapped keyword as prefix of your property wrapper, assign a default value (mandatory except for @UnwrappedInject), and it will return stored value or default value, but your property will always be there for you.

  • @UnwrappedUserDefault
  • @UnwrappedKeychain
  • @UnwrappedSingleton
  • @UnwrappedInject
  • @UnwrappedStore

๐Ÿฅก + ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™‚๏ธ Combo usage

You can also combine previous cases in case you need it, unwrapped first please.

  • @UnwrappedCodableUserDefault
  • @UnwrappedCodableKeychain
  • @UnwrappedCodableSingleton
  • @UnwrappedCodableStore

๐Ÿ’‰ Dependency Injection usage

@Register (click to expand)

This property wrapper will register the implementations of your dependencies. Register them wherever you want before inject it, but be sure to do it only once (except if you use qualifiers), for example, in an Injector class. You can register through a protocol or directly using your class implementation.

var yourDependency: YourProtocol = YourImplementation()

var yourDependency = YourImplementation()

You can also define a closure that builds your dependency. Just remember cast your dependency if you are going to inject it through a protocol.

var yourDependency = {
    YourImplementation() as YourProtocol

var yourDependency = {

@Inject and @UnwrappedInject (click to expand)

These property wrappers injects your dependencies @Register implementations.

var yourDependency: YourProtocol?

var yourDependency: YourImplementation?

var yourUnwrappedDependency: YourProtocol

var yourUnwrappedDependency: YourImplementation

Because these property wrappers works similarly to @Singleton, the default scope is .singleton, but if you use builder closures on @Register, you can modify them to inject a single instance.

var yourDependency: YourProtocol?

var yourUnwrappedDependency: YourProtocol

@InjectWith and @UnwrappedInjectWith (click to expand)

Your dependency may need parameters when injecting, you can pass them with these property wrappers. Simply define a model with your dependency parameters and pass it. It will inject a new instance built with these parameters.

var yourDependency = { parameters in
    YourImplementation(parameters) as YourProtocol

var yourDependency: YourProtocol?

var yourUnwrappedDependency: YourProtocol

Qualifiers (click to expand)

You can use qualifiers to provide various implementations of a particular dependency. A qualifier is just a @objc protocol that you apply to a class.

For example, you could declare Dog and Cat qualifier protocols and apply it to another class that conforms Animal protocol. To declare this qualifier, use the following code:

protocol Animal {
  func sound()

@objc protocol Dog {}

@objc protocol Cat {}

You can then define multiple classes that conforms Animal protocol and uses this qualifiers:

class DogImplementation: Animal, Dog {
    func sound() { print("Woof!") }

class CatImplementation: Animal, Cat {
    func sound() { print("Meow!") }

Both implementations of the class can now be @Register:

var registerDog: Animal = DogImplementation()

var registerCat: Animal = CatImplementation()

To inject one or the other implementation, simply add the qualifier(s) to your @Inject:

var dog: Animal

var cat: Animal

dog.sound() // prints Woof!
cat.sound() // prints Meow!

Testing (click to expand)

One of the advantages of dependency injection is that the code can be easily testable with mock implementation. That is why there is a Mock qualifier that has priority over all, so you can have your dependencies defined in the app and create your mock in the test target simply by adding this qualifier.

// App target

class YourImplementation: YourProtocol {}

var yourDependency: YourProtocol = YourImplementation()

var yourDependency: YourProtocol?
// Test target

class YourMock: YourProtocol, Mock {}

var yourDependency: YourProtocol = YourMock()

๐Ÿ‘€ Examples

Talk is cheap. Show me the code.

    // Securely stored in UserDefaults.
    var username: String?

    // Securely stored in Keychain.
    var password: String?

    // Securely stored in a Singleton storage.
    var sessionToken: String?

    // Securely stored in a Singleton storage.
    // Always has a value, the stored or the default.
    var refreshToken: String = "B0610306-A33F"

    struct User: Codable {
        let username: String
        let password: String?
        let sessionToken: String?

    // Codable model securely stored in UserDefaults.
    var user: User?

โš™๏ธ Installation

You can use the Swift Package Manager by declaring SecurePropertyStorage as a dependency in your Package.swift file:
.package(url: "https://github.com/alexruperez/SecurePropertyStorage", from: "0.3.0")

By default, all property wrappers are installed and you can import them, but if you want, you can install only some of them:

  • UserDefault: @*UserDefault property wrappers.
  • Keychain: @*Keychain property wrappers.
  • Singleton: @*Singleton property wrappers.
  • Storage: @*Store property wrappers.
  • Inject: @*Inject property wrappers.

For more information, see the Swift Package Manager documentation.

Or you can use Carthage:
github "alexruperez/SecurePropertyStorage"
