ark-sponge is a Rust library that provides infrastructure for implementing cryptographic sponges. This library is released under the MIT License and the Apache v2 License (see License).
WARNING: This is an academic prototype, and in particular has not received careful code review. This implementation is NOT ready for production use.
A cryptographic sponge is a cryptographic primitive that has two basic operations, absorb and squeeze. A sponge accepts byte or field element inputs through its "absorb" operation. At any time, a user can invoke the "squeeze" operation on a sponge to obtain byte or field element outputs. The sponge is stateful, so that squeezed outputs are dependent on previous inputs and previous outputs.
The library offers infrastructure for building cryptographic sponges and using them with different types of inputs.
The library compiles on the
stable toolchain of the Rust compiler. To install the latest version
of Rust, first install
rustup by following the instructions here, or via
your platform's package manager. Once
rustup is installed, install the Rust toolchain by invoking:
rustup install stable
After that, use
cargo (the standard Rust build tool) to build the library:
git clone https://github.com/arkworks-rs/sponge.git cd sponge cargo build --release
This library comes with some unit and integration tests. Run these tests with:
