A fast implementation of Elliptic - Curve Cryptography in pure Python. ( Port of Elliptic-JS )

Project description


Fast elliptic-curve cryptography in pure Python implementation. This is a port to elliptic js in python. However, it has the ability to do more than what elliptic js does.

NOTE: Please take a look at before choosing a curve for your cryptography operations.


ECC is much slower than regular RSA cryptography, the pythonic implementations are even slower.


You can read the docs here

Supported curves

Following curve 'presets' are embedded into the library:

  • secp256k1
  • p192
  • p224
  • p256
  • p384
  • p521


This project is heavily inspired by the javascript implementation of elliptic . you can find it here. Also, the naming conventions and references have also been taken from here. The ellitpic curve details can be found here.
