This is a fork of https://github.com/rust-bitcoin/rust-secp256k1, the alterations are minor and relating directly to keeping up-to-date dependencies.
rust-secp256k1 is a wrapper around ,
a C library by Pieter Wuille for producing ECDSA signatures using the SECG curve
secp256k1. This library
- exposes type-safe Rust bindings for all
- implements key generation
- implements deterministic nonce generation via RFC6979
- implements many unit tests, adding to those already present in
- makes no allocations (except in unit tests) for efficiency and use in freestanding implementations
Contributions to this library are welcome. A few guidelines:
- Any breaking changes must have an accompanied entry in CHANGELOG.md
- No new dependencies, please.
- No crypto should be implemented in Rust, with the possible exception of hash functions. Cryptographic contributions should be directed upstream to libsecp256k1.
- This library should always compile with any combination of features on Rust 1.22.
The build dependency
cc might require a more recent version of the Rust compiler.
To ensure compilation with Rust 1.22.0, pin its version in your
cargo update -p cc --precise 1.0.41. If you're using
secp256k1 in a library,
to make sure it compiles in CI, you'll need to generate a lockfile first.
Example for Travis CI:
before_script: - if [ "$TRAVIS_RUST_VERSION" == "1.22.0" ]; then cargo generate-lockfile --verbose && cargo update -p cc --precise "1.0.41" --verbose; fi
