Summary0008082: Make payment bouncing deterministic
DescriptionWhen libeufin-nexus bounces an incoming payment, it issues a message with an outgoing payment with a random bank ID and a subject mentioning the bounced payment. When rebuilding the database from scratch, there is no way of knowing whether a malformed incoming payment has already been bounced and we risk bouncing the same payment multiple times.
In addition, it should be easy for auditors to establish a link between an outgoing payment and a bounced incoming payment.
Additional InformationThe solution is to generate a deterministic bank ID from the bank ID of the bounced payment. As libeufin-bank and libeufin-nexus are linked using SQL triggers to perform conversion logic, it must be possible to generate the ID entirely in postgres SQL.

The bank ID can be a maximum of 35 characters long and we are not sure that this field is case sensitive as the standard does not clearly specify this.

Our solution is to perform a SHA-256 hash of the bank ID, encode it using base64, then truncate it to 35 characters and finally capitalise the result.
