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

[dependencies] sharks = "0.2"
To get started using Sharks, see the Rust docs
The API is simple and to the point, with minimal configuration.
The code is as idiomatic and clean as possible, with minimum external dependencies.
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.
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.
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
