NAME

Crypt::Perl::ECDSA::Generate - ECDSA key generation

SYNOPSIS

    use Crypt::Perl::ECDSA::Generate ();

    #$prkey is a C::P::E::PrivateKey instance.
    my $prkey = Crypt::Perl::ECDSA::Generate::by_curve_name('secp521r1');

    my $signature = $prkey->sign('Hello!');

    die 'Wut' if $prkey->verify('Hello!', $signature);

    #You can also, in case it’s useful, do this. It’s probably
    #only useful if you’re developing a new curve or something … ??
    my $prkey2 = Crypt::Perl::ECDSA::Generate::by_explicit_curve(
        {
            p => Crypt::Perl::BigInt->new(...),
            a => ...,
            b => ...,
            n => ...,
            h => ...,
            gx => ...,
            gy => ...,
        },
    );

DISCUSSION

Thankfully, this is easy enough on processors that it’s feasible in pure Perl!
