NAME

Crypt::PK::Ed25519 - Digital signature based on Ed25519

SYNOPSIS

 use Crypt::PK::Ed25519;

 #Signature: Alice
 my $priv = Crypt::PK::Ed25519->new('Alice_priv_ed25519.der');
 my $sig = $priv->sign_message($message);

 #Signature: Bob (received $message + $sig)
 my $pub = Crypt::PK::Ed25519->new('Alice_pub_ed25519.der');
 $pub->verify_message($sig, $message) or die "ERROR";

 #Load key

DESCRIPTION

Since: CryptX-0.067

METHODS

new

 my $pk = Crypt::PK::Ed25519->new();
 #or
 my $pk = Crypt::PK::Ed25519->new($priv_or_pub_key_filename);
 #or
 my $pk = Crypt::PK::Ed25519->new(\$buffer_containing_priv_or_pub_key);

Support for password protected PEM keys

 my $pk = Crypt::PK::Ed25519->new($priv_pem_key_filename, $password);
 #or
 my $pk = Crypt::PK::Ed25519->new(\$buffer_containing_priv_pem_key, $password);

generate_key

Uses Yarrow-based cryptographically strong random number generator seeded with random data taken from /dev/random (UNIX) or CryptGenRandom (Win32).

 $pk->generate_key;

import_key

Loads private or public key in DER or PEM format.

 $pk->import_key($filename);
 #or
 $pk->import_key(\$buffer_containing_key);

Support for password protected PEM keys:

 $pk->import_key($filename, $password);
 #or
 $pk->import_key(\$buffer_containing_key, $password);

Loading private or public keys form perl hash:

 $pk->import_key($hashref);

 # the $hashref is either a key exported via key2hash
 $pk->import_key({
      curve => "ed25519",
      pub   => "A05D1AEA5830AC9A65CDFB384660D497E3697C46B419CF2CEC85DE8BD245459D",
      priv  => "45C109BA6FD24E8B67D23EFB6B92D99CD457E2137172C0D749FE2B5A0C142DAD",
 });

 # or a hash with items corresponding to JWK (JSON Web Key)
 $pk->import_key({
       kty => "OKP",
       crv => "Ed25519",
       d   => "RcEJum_STotn0j77a5LZnNRX4hNxcsDXSf4rWgwULa0",
       x   => "oF0a6lgwrJplzfs4RmDUl-NpfEa0Gc8s7IXei9JFRZ0",
 });

Supported key formats:

 # all formats can be loaded from a file
 my $pk = Crypt::PK::Ed25519->new($filename);

 # or from a buffer containing the key
 my $pk = Crypt::PK::Ed25519->new(\$buffer_with_key);

 my $public_bytes = $pk->export_key_raw('public');

sign_message

 my $signature = $priv->sign_message($message);

verify_message

 my $valid = $pub->verify_message($signature, $message)

is_private

 my $rv = $pk->is_private;
 # 1 .. private key loaded
 # 0 .. public key loaded
 # undef .. no key loaded

key2hash

 my $hash = $pk->key2hash;

 # returns hash like this (or undef if no key loaded):
 {
   curve => "ed25519",
   # raw public key as a hexadecimal string
   pub   => "A05D1AEA5830AC9A65CDFB384660D497E3697C46B419CF2CEC85DE8BD245459D",
