  • Plan B for UUIDs: double AES-128

    We evaluated ULID but we wanted something that is future proof for our decentralised secret sharing system. So we implemented UUIDv7 in TypeScript called `IdSortable` https://github.com/MatrixAI/js-id

    It allows strict monotonic IDs when you provide it the previously generated ID. The resulting data structure is a Uint8Array making it easy to put into binary structures. Can also be used as a key inside any POJO record.

    I had reviewed existing UUIDv7 implementations and many were incorrect or had subtle timing bugs.

    We ended up implementing UUIDv7 in our ID generation library https://github.com/MatrixAI/js-id. And we have a number of tests ensuring that it is truly monotonic even across process restarts.

    See IdSortable.
