light-poseidon

light-poseidon is a Poseidon hash implementation in Rust created for Light Protocol.

Parameters

The library provides pre-generated parameters over the BN254 curve, however it can work with any parameters provided as long as developers take care of generating the round constants.

Parameters provided by the library are:

  • x^5 S-boxes
  • width - 2 ≤ t ≤ 13
  • inputs - 1 ≤ n ≤ 12
  • 8 full rounds and partial rounds depending on t: [56, 57, 56, 60, 60, 63, 64, 63, 60, 66, 60, 65]

The parameters can be generated with:

cargo xtask generate-poseidon-parameters

Output type

Poseidon type implements two traits which serve the purpose of returning the calculated hash in different representations:

Examples

Example with two simple big-endian byte inputs (converted to field elements) and BN254-based parameters provided by the library, with PoseidonBytesHasher trait and a byte array result:

use light_poseidon::{Poseidon, PoseidonBytesHasher, parameters::bn254_x5};
use ark_bn254::Fr;
use ark_ff::{BigInteger, PrimeField};

let mut poseidon = Poseidon::<Fr>::new_circom(2).unwrap();

let hash = poseidon.hash_bytes_be(&[&[1u8; 32], &[2u8; 32]]).unwrap();

println!("{:?}", hash);
// Should print:
// [
//     13, 84, 225, 147, 143, 138, 140, 28, 125, 235, 94, 3, 85, 242, 99, 25, 32, 123, 132,
//     254, 156, 162, 206, 27, 38, 231, 53, 200, 41, 130, 25, 144
// ]

With PoseidonHasher trait and ark_ff::PrimeField result:

use light_poseidon::{Poseidon, PoseidonHasher, parameters::bn254_x5};
use ark_bn254::Fr;
use ark_ff::{BigInteger, PrimeField};

let mut poseidon = Poseidon::<Fr>::new_circom(2).unwrap();

let input1 = Fr::from_be_bytes_mod_order(&[1u8; 32]);
let input2 = Fr::from_be_bytes_mod_order(&[2u8; 32]);

let hash = poseidon.hash(&[input1, input2]).unwrap();

// Do something with `hash`.

Implementation

The implementation is compatible with the original SageMath implementation, but it was also inspired by the following ones:

Performance

This repository contains a benchmark measuring the performance of this Poseidon implementation for given 1 - 12 random 32 bytes inputs.

To run them, simply use:

cargo bench

This is the result from a host with the following hardware:
