Low-level cryptography utilities for Starknet

starknet-crypto contains utilities for performing low-level cryptographic operations in Starknet.

You're advised to use high-level crypto utilities implemented by the starknet-core crate (or use it through the starknet::core re-export) if you're not familiar with cryptographic primitives. Using these low-level functions incorrectly could result in leaking your private key, for example.

This library does not provide constant-time guarantees.

WARNING

While it has been tested against data randomly generated from cairo-lang, this crate is NOT audited or reviewed for security. Use at your own risk.

If you're a cryptographer, you're welcome to contribute by reviewing the implementation :)

Benchmark

These results were generated on the author's machine with AMD Ryzen 9 5950X 16-Core Processor running Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS.

Credits

Most of the code in this crate for the Pedersen hash implementation was inspired and modified from the awesome pathfinder from Equilibrium.

The Poseidon hash implementation was also ported from pathfinder.

Based on this solid foundation, ECDSA functionalities were inspired and ported from the crypto-cpp implementation from StarkWare.
