Fast, small and secure Shamir's Secret Sharing library crate

Documentation:

Usage

Add this to your Cargo.toml:

[dependencies]
sharks = "0.2"

To get started using Sharks, see the Rust docs

Features

Developer friendly

The API is simple and to the point, with minimal configuration.

Fast and small

The code is as idiomatic and clean as possible, with minimum external dependencies.

Secure by design

The implementation forbids the user to choose parameters that would result in an insecure application, like generating more shares than what's allowed by the finite field length.

Limitations

Because the Galois finite field it uses is GF256, only up to 255 shares can be generated for a given secret. A larger number would be insecure as shares would start duplicating. Nevertheless, the secret can be arbitrarily long as computations are performed on single byte chunks.

Testing

This crate contains both unit and benchmark tests (as well as the examples included in the docs). You can run them with cargo test and cargo bench.
