Client-side-validation commit-verify library

Build Tests Lints codecov

crates.io Docs unsafe forbidden Apache-2 licensed

This is an implementation of [LNPBP-4] multi-commitment standard and [LNPBP-9] standard, defining to cryptographic commitment schemes used in client-side-validation. It is a part of more generic client_side_validation library covering other client-side-validation standards.

Client-side-validation is a paradigm for distributed computing, based on top of proof-of-publication/commitment medium layer, which may be a bitcoin blockchain or other type of distributed consensus system.

The development of the library is supported by LNP/BP Standards Association.


Detailed developer & API documentation for the library can be accessed at https://docs.rs/commit_verify/

To learn about the technologies enabled by the library please check slides from our tech presentations and LNP/BP tech talks videos


To use the library, you just need to reference a latest version, in [dependencies] section of your project Cargo.toml.

commit_verify = "1"

If you are using other client-side-validation libraries, consider importing just a single client_side_validation library which re-exports all of them, including the current one.

The library has just a two feature flags, both of which are not used by default:

  • rand, providing support for generating random 32-byte sequences of Slice32 type, used in many LNP/BP applications (for instance as hash-lock preimages or during LNPBP-4 multi-commitments)
  • serde, providing support for data structure serialization with serde across the library
