Class Documentation

class Key25519(__builtin__.object)
      __init__(self, secretkey=None, verifyingkey=None, pubkey=None)

          A PublicKey version of the object will have ONLY verifyingkey
          and pubkey and signingkey will be None
          A PrivateKey version of the object will have secretkey set
          and verifyingkey and pubkey are ignored and derived from secretkey

          Storing and reusing the secretkey is a way to recreate your key pair

      get_ecdh_key(self, other)
          other-->Key25519 instance

          Returns a PublicKey version of this object



      sign = wrapped(*args, **kwargs)

      verify = wrapped(*args, **kwargs)

print('----- e is a new different key -----')

print('e.verify: ', e.verify(sig, msg))
print('c == e:', c == e)
print('public(c) == public(e):', c.public_key() == e.public_key())

print('----- Test ECDH shared key -----')

print('ecdh equal: ', ecdh1 == ecdh2)
ecdh3 = e.get_ecdh_key(c.public_key())
print('ecdh equal again: ', ecdh1 == ecdh3)
