yubikey-piv

Pure Rust host-side driver for the YubiKey Personal Identity Verification (PIV) application providing general-purpose public-key signing and encryption with hardware-backed private keys for RSA (2048/1024) and ECC (P-256/P-384) algorithms (e.g, PKCS#1v1.5, ECDSA)

Documentation

About

YubiKeys are versatile devices and through their PIV support, you can use them to store a number of RSA (2048/1024) and ECC (NIST P-256/P-384) private keys with configurable access control policies. Both the signing (RSASSA/ECDSA) and encryption (PKCS#1v1.5/ECIES) use cases are supported for either key type.

See Yubico's guide to PIV-enabled YubiKeys for more information on which devices support PIV and the available functionality.

If you've been wanting to use Rust to sign and/or encrypt stuff using a private key generated and stored on a Yubikey (with option PIN-based access), this is the crate you've been after!

Note that while this project started as a fork of a Yubico project, this fork is NOT an official Yubico project and is in no way supported or endorsed by Yubico.

Minimum Supported Rust Version

  • Rust 1.39+

Supported YubiKeys

NOTE: Nano and USB-C variants of the above are also supported

Security Warning

No security audits of this crate have ever been performed. Presently it is in an experimental stage and may still contain high-severity issues.

Status

This project is a largely incomplete work-in-progress. So far the only functionality which has actually been tested is connecting to Yubikeys.

If you're interested helping test functionality, the table below documents the current status of the project and relevant GitHub issues for various functions of the YubiKey:

Module Issue Description
🚧 yubikey #20 Core functionality: auth, keys, PIN/PUK, encrypt, sign, attest
⚠️ cccid #21 Cardholder Capability Container (CCC) IDs
⚠️ certificate #22 Certificates for stored keys
⚠️ chuid #23 Cardholder Unique Identifier (CHUID)
⚠️ config #24 Support for reading on-key configuration
⚠️ container #25 MS Container Map Records
⚠️ key #26 Crypto key management: list, generate, import
⚠️ mgm #26 Management Key (MGM) support: set, get, derive
⚠️ msroots #28 msroots file: PKCS#7 formatted certificate store for enterprise trusted roots

Legend:

Description
🚧 Testing and validation in progress
⚠️ Untested support

NOTE: Commands marked ⚠️ are disabled by default as they have have not been properly tested and may contain bugs or not work at all. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Enable the untested feature in your Cargo.toml to enable features marked ⚠️ above.

Testing

To run the full test suite, you'll need a connected YubiKey NEO/4/5 device in the default state (i.e. default PIN/PUK).

Tests which run live against a YubiKey device are marked as #[ignore] by default in order to pass when running in a CI environment. To run these tests locally, invoke the following command:

cargo test -- --ignored

This crate makes extensive use of the log facade to provide detailed information about what is happening. If you'd like to print this logging information while running the tests, set the RUST_LOG environment variable to a relevant loglevel (e.g. error, warn, info, debug, trace):

RUST_LOG=info cargo test -- --ignored

To trace every message sent to/from the card i.e. the raw Application Protocol Data Unit (APDU) messages, use the trace log level:

[TRACE yubikey_piv::apdu] <<< Response { status_words: Success, data: [0, 115, 0, 178] }
test connect ... ok

APDU messages labeled >>> are being sent to the YubiKey's internal SmartCard, and ones labeled <<< are the responses.

History

This library is a Rust translation of the yubico-piv-tool utility by Yubico, which was originally written in C. It was mechanically translated from C into Rust using Corrode, and then subsequently heavily refactored into safer, more idiomatic Rust.
