pub struct ProtectedMPI { /* private fields */ }
Expand description

Holds a single MPI containing secrets.

The memory will be cleared when the object is dropped. Used by SecretKeyMaterial to protect secret keys.

Implementations

Creates new MPI encoding an uncompressed EC point.

Encodes the given point on a elliptic curve (see Section 6 of RFC 6637 for details). This is used to encode public keys and ciphertexts for the NIST curves (NistP256, NistP384, and NistP521).

Creates new MPI encoding a compressed EC point using native encoding.

Encodes the given point on a elliptic curve (see Section 13.2 of RFC4880bis for details). This is used to encode public keys and ciphertexts for the Bernstein curves (currently X25519).

Returns the length of the MPI in bits.

Leading zero-bits are not included in the returned size.

Returns the value of this MPI.

Note that due to stripping of zero-bytes, the returned value may be shorter than expected.

Returns the value of this MPI zero-padded to the given length.

MPI-encoding strips leading zero-bytes. This function adds them back. This operation is done unconditionally to avoid timing differences. If the size exceeds to, the result is silently truncated to avoid timing differences.

Decodes an EC point encoded as MPI.

Decodes the MPI into a point on an elliptic curve (see Section 6 of RFC 6637 and Section 13.2 of RFC4880bis for details). If the point is not compressed, the function returns (x, y). If it is compressed, y will be empty.

Errors

Returns Error::UnsupportedEllipticCurve if the curve is not supported, Error::MalformedMPI if the point is formatted incorrectly, Error::InvalidOperation if the given curve is operating on native octet strings.
