  • ff-zeroize is a temporary crate that enables zeroize features for ffcrate
  • ff is a finite field library written in pure Rust, with no unsafe{} code.


  • This library does not provide constant-time guarantees.


Add the ff crate to your Cargo.toml:

ff_zeroize = "0.6.1"

The ff crate contains Field, PrimeField, PrimeFieldRepr and SqrtField traits. See the documentation for more.


If you need an implementation of a prime field, this library also provides a procedural macro that will expand into an efficient implementation of a prime field when supplied with the modulus. PrimeFieldGenerator must be an element of Fp of p-1 order, that is also quadratic nonresidue.

First, enable the derive crate feature:

ff_zeroize = { version = "0.6.1", features = ["derive"] }

And then use the macro like so:

extern crate rand;
extern crate ff;

#[PrimeFieldModulus = "52435875175126190479447740508185965837690552500527637822603658699938581184513"]
#[PrimeFieldGenerator = "7"]
struct Fp(FpRepr);

And that's it! Fp now implements Field and PrimeField. Fp will also implement SqrtField if supported. The library implements FpRepr itself and derives PrimeFieldRepr for it.
