sumhash

Crates.io Docs.rs CI

This repository contains a Rust implementation of subset-sum hash function designed by the Algorand project.

The reference implementation is written in Go and can be found in the go-sumhash repository. You can also refer to the spec to see a formal description of the hash function.

This implementation isn't a literal port of the Go repository since the official implementation wouldn't lead to idiomatic Rust. In this library, we implement a Sumhash512Core core that can be wrapped with CoreWrapper. If you're interested in an earlier version which was a direct port of the reference implementation, see the legacyport branch.

This library has a AlgorandSumhash512Core type alias which facilitates a default configuration for Sumhash512Core that utilizes the official seed for the Algorand blockchain state proofs. The AlgorandSumhash512Core uses a lookup table as the default underlying compressor setup instead of a matrix.

This library isn't audited or ready for production use, nor is it an official implementation.

Use

Using the Algorand instance configuration:

use sumhash::sumhash512core::AlgorandSumhash512Core;
use digest::{core_api::CoreWrapper, FixedOutput, Update};

fn main() {
  let mut h = CoreWrapper::<AlgorandSumhash512Core>::default();
  h.update("hello world".as_bytes());
  let output = h.finalize_fixed();
  println!("Result: {}", hex::encode(&output));
}

Generic flavor providing your own seed.

use sumhash::sumhash512core::Sumhash512Core;
use digest::{core_api::CoreWrapper, FixedOutput, Update};

fn main() {
  let mut salt = [0; 64];
  salt[0] = 0x13;
  salt[1] = 0x37;
  let mut h = CoreWrapper::from_core(Sumhash512Core::new_with_salt(salt));
  h.update("hello world".as_bytes());
  let output = h.finalize_fixed();
  println!("Result: {}", hex::encode(&output));
}

Cargo

Build

Run cargo build.

Tests

All the existing tests from go-sumhash have been ported and are passing. The tests rely on generating random matrixes using Shake256 where this library also honors the input and expected exact output match, giving confidence for correctness.

Run cargo test:
