Easy-ECC

Build Status Latest Stable Version Latest Unstable Version License Downloads

A usability wrapper for PHP ECC.

Installing

composer require paragonie/easy-ecc

Using Easy-ECC

<?php
use ParagonIE\EasyECC\EasyECC;

// Generate an instance; defaults to Curve25519
$ecc = new EasyECC();

// Get a keypair
$alice_sk = $ecc->generatePrivateKey();
$alice_pk = $alice_sk->getPublicKey();

// Signing a message (with PEM-formatted signatures):
$message = 'This is extremely simple to use correctly.';
$signature = $ecc->sign($message, $alice_sk);

if (!$ecc->verify($message, $alice_pk, $signature)) {
    throw new Exception('Signature validation failed');
}

// Let's do a key exchange:
$bob_sk = $ecc->generatePrivateKey();
$bob_pk = $alice_sk->getPublicKey();

$alice_to_bob = $ecc->keyExchange($alice_sk, $bob_pk, true);
$bob_to_alice = $ecc->keyExchange($bob_sk, $alice_pk, false);

Other Easy-ECC Modes

secp256k1 + SHA256

<?php
use ParagonIE\EasyECC\EasyECC;

$ecc = new EasyECC('K256');

NIST P256 + SHA256

<?php
use ParagonIE\EasyECC\EasyECC;

$ecc = new EasyECC('P256');

NIST P384 + SHA384

<?php
use ParagonIE\EasyECC\EasyECC;

$ecc = new EasyECC('P384');

ECDSA-Specific Features

<?php
use ParagonIE\EasyECC\EasyECC;
use ParagonIE\EasyECC\ECDSA\{PublicKey, SecretKey};

// Generate an instance
$ecc = new EasyECC('P256');

// Get a keypair
/ @var SecretKey $alice_sk */
$alice_sk = $ecc->generatePrivateKey();
/ @var PublicKey $alice_pk */
$alice_pk = $alice_sk->getPublicKey();

// Serialize as PEM (for OpenSSL compatibility):
$alice_sk_pem = $alice_sk->exportPem();
$alice_pk_pem = $alice_pk->exportPem();

// Serialize public key as compressed point (for brevity):
$alice_pk_cpt = $alice_pk->toString();

$message = 'This is extremely simple to use correctly.';
// Signing a message (with IEEE-P1363-formatted signatures):
$signature = $ecc->sign($message, $alice_sk, true);
if (!$ecc->verify($message, $alice_pk, $signature, true)) {
    throw new Exception('Signature validation failed');
}

// Let's do a key exchange:
$bob_sk = $ecc->generatePrivateKey();
$bob_pk = $alice_sk->getPublicKey();

$alice_to_bob = $ecc->keyExchange($alice_sk, $bob_pk, true);
$bob_to_alice = $ecc->keyExchange($bob_sk, $alice_pk, false);
