[][src]Module libra_crypto::traits

This module provides a generic set of traits for dealing with cryptographic primitives.

For examples on how to use these traits, see the implementations of the [ed25519] or [bls12381] modules.

Enums

CryptoMaterialError

An error type for key and signature validation issues, see ValidCryptoMaterial.

Traits

Genesis

A type family with a by-convention notion of genesis private key.

Length

The serialized length of the data that enables macro derived serialization and deserialization.

PrivateKey

A type family for key material that should remain secret and has an associated type of the PublicKey family.

PublicKey

A type for key material that can be publicly shared, and in asymmetric fashion, can be obtained from a PrivateKey reference. This convertibility requirement ensures the existence of a deterministic, canonical public key construction from a private key.

Signature

A type family for signature material that knows which public key type is needed to verify it, and given such a public key, knows how to verify.

SigningKey

A type family of valid keys that know how to sign.

Uniform

A type family for schemes which know how to generate key material from a cryptographically-secure CryptoRng.

ValidCryptoMaterial

Key or more generally crypto material with a notion of byte validation.

ValidCryptoMaterialStringExt

An extension to to/from Strings for ValidCryptoMaterial.

VerifyingKey

A type family of public keys that are used for signing.
