NAME

Crypt::PK::X25519 - Asymmetric cryptography based on X25519

SYNOPSIS

 use Crypt::PK::X25519;

 #Shared secret
 my $priv = Crypt::PK::X25519->new('Alice_priv_x25519.der');
 my $pub = Crypt::PK::X25519->new('Bob_pub_x25519.der');
 my $shared_secret = $priv->shared_secret($pub);

 #Load key
 my $pk = Crypt::PK::X25519->new;
 my $pk_hex = "EA7806F721A8570512C8F6EFB4E8D620C49A529E4DF5EAA77DEC646FB1E87E41";
 $pk->import_key_raw(pack("H*", $pk_hex), "public");
 my $sk = Crypt::PK::X25519->new;
 my $sk_hex = "002F93D10BA5728D8DD8E9527721DABA3261C0BB1BEFDE7B4BBDAC631D454651";
 $sk->import_key_raw(pack("H*", $sk_hex), "private");

 #Key generation

DESCRIPTION

Since: CryptX-0.067

METHODS

new

 my $pk = Crypt::PK::X25519->new();
 #or
 my $pk = Crypt::PK::X25519->new($priv_or_pub_key_filename);
 #or
 my $pk = Crypt::PK::X25519->new(\$buffer_containing_priv_or_pub_key);

Support for password protected PEM keys

 my $pk = Crypt::PK::X25519->new($priv_pem_key_filename, $password);
 #or
 my $pk = Crypt::PK::X25519->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 => "x25519",
      pub   => "EA7806F721A8570512C8F6EFB4E8D620C49A529E4DF5EAA77DEC646FB1E87E41",
      priv  => "002F93D10BA5728D8DD8E9527721DABA3261C0BB1BEFDE7B4BBDAC631D454651",
 });

 # or a hash with items corresponding to JWK (JSON Web Key)
 $pk->import_key({
       kty => "OKP",
       crv => "X25519",
       d   => "AC-T0Qulco2N2OlSdyHaujJhwLsb7957S72sYx1FRlE",
       x   => "6ngG9yGoVwUSyPbvtOjWIMSaUp5N9eqnfexkb7HofkE",
 });

Supported key formats:

 # all formats can be loaded from a file
 my $pk = Crypt::PK::X25519->new($filename);

 # or from a buffer containing the key
 my $pk = Crypt::PK::X25519->new(\$buffer_with_key);

import_key_raw

Import raw public/private key - can load raw key data exported by "export_key_raw".

 $pk->import_key_raw($key, 'public');
 $pk->import_key_raw($key, 'private');

export_key_der

 my $private_der = $pk->export_key_der('private');
 #or
 my $public_der = $pk->export_key_der('public');

export_key_pem

 my $private_pem = $pk->export_key_pem('private');
 #or
 my $public_pem = $pk->export_key_pem('public');

Support for password protected PEM keys

 my $private_pem = $pk->export_key_pem('private', $password);
 #or
 my $private_pem = $pk->export_key_pem('private', $password, $cipher);

 # supported ciphers: 'DES-CBC'
 #                    'DES-EDE3-CBC'
 #                    'SEED-CBC'

export_key_raw

Export raw public/private key

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

shared_secret

  my $pk  = Crypt::PK::X25519->new($priv_key_filename);
  my $pkb = Crypt::PK::X25519->new($pub_key_filename);
  my $shared_secret = $pk->shared_secret($pkb);

  # Bob having his priv key $pk and Alice's public key $pka
  my $pk = Crypt::PK::X25519->new($priv_key_filename);
  my $pka = Crypt::PK::X25519->new($pub_key_filename);
  my $shared_secret = $pk->shared_secret($pka);  # same value as computed by Alice

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 => "x25519",
   # raw public key as a hexadecimal string
   pub   => "EA7806F721A8570512C8F6EFB4E8D620C49A529E4DF5EAA77DEC646FB1E87E41",
   # raw private key as a hexadecimal string. undef if key is public only
   priv  => "002F93D10BA5728D8DD8E9527721DABA3261C0BB1BEFDE7B4BBDAC631D454651",
