Ed25519 public-key signatures

Project description

Python bindings to the Ed25519 public-key signature system.

This offers a comfortable python interface to a C implementation of the Ed25519 public-key signature system (http://ed25519.cr.yp.to/), using the portable ‘ref’ code from the ‘SUPERCOP’ benchmarking suite.

This system provides high (128-bit) security, short (32-byte) keys, short (64-byte) signatures, and fast (2-6ms) operation. Please see the README for more details.

## Not Recommended For New Applications: Use pynacl Instead

For new applications, I recommend you use [pynacl](https://github.com/pyca/pynacl) instead of this repository. PyNaCl is larger and takes longer to build (it contains the complete NaCl/libsodium library, not just the ed25519 portion), but it is well-maintained by the diligent and conscientious PyCA team, whereas I’ve allowed this repository to languish. PyNaCl is also about 10-20 times faster. A guide for migration fron python-ed25519 to PyNaCl is included below.
