This crate contains bindings to the C implementations of the following schemes, from PQClean.

This project packages Post-Quantum cryptographic algorithms that participate in the NIST PQC standardization effort. It is currently a collection of wrappers around C implementations from the PQClean project.


If you want serde support, enable the serialization feature.

Included implementations from PQClean

Below is a list of the included schemes and the corresponding implementations sourced from PQClean. The "default" implementation is used in the Rust-friendly interface, alternative implementations are exposed as ffi methods only.

  • dilithium2
    • clean
    • avx2 (if supported)
  • dilithium3
    • clean
    • avx2 (if supported)
  • dilithium5
    • clean
    • avx2 (if supported)
