Rabe

rabe is a rust library implementing several Attribute Based Encryption (ABE) schemes using a modified version of the bn library of zcash (type-3 pairing / Baretto Naering curve). The modification of bn brings in serde or borsh instead of the deprecated rustc_serialize. The standard serialization library is serde. If you want to use borsh, you need to specify it as feature.

For integration in distributed applications contact us.

Building rabe lib

In order to compile and test:

  • install rust nightly
  • git clone library
  • install build-essential
  • and then run cargo build --release && RUST_BACKTRACE=1 cargo test -- --nocapture
  • rabe is also available with borsh serialization. just add --features borsh to build command

Building rabe console app
