Python Cryptonight

Project description

Build Status

Python binding for Monero hash functions cn_fast_hash, cn_slow_hash.

  • cn_fast_hash is used mainly for hashing to scalars / EC points.
  • cn_slow_hash is CryptoNight hash function used for mining and encryption key derivation for encrypted wallet files.
  • Supports CNv1, CNv2, CNv4
  • JIT tested on OSX + LLVM, experimental

Py2, Py3 compatible + tests with Monero test vectors.

pip install py-cryptonight

Usage

import binascii
import pycryptonight

pycryptonight.cn_fast_hash(b'1')
# hexcoded: b'c89efdaa54c0f20c7adf612882df0950f5a951637e0307cdcb4c672f298b8bc6

pycryptonight.cn_slow_hash(b'1')

# hexcoded: b'09bcf4997132dc3d7980125620724acc9c90dc393cb6694097a7d745c57b6b5b

Build problems

The extension builds with AES extension by default. To disable this, rebuild with:

MONERO_NO_AES=1 python setup.py install

JIT

The JIT optimization is disabled by default as the implementation was not properly tested. If you want to experiment with JIT you need to compile with:

MONERO_NO_JIT=0 python setup.py install
MONERO_USE_CNV4_JIT=1 ./test.sh

To rebuild locally and test:

MONERO_NO_AES=0 MONERO_NO_JIT=0 python setup.py develop
MONERO_USE_CNV4_JIT=0 ./test.sh  # JIT disabled
MONERO_USE_CNV4_JIT=1 ./test.sh  # JIT enabled
