This is a part of scicrypt. For more information, head to the scicrypt crate homepage.

General traits for cryptographic primitives in multi-party computation, such as homomorphic (threshold) cryptosystems, oblivious transfers (WIP), secret sharing, etc.


General notion of a cryptosystem

Homomorphic properties of homomorphic encryption schemes

Random number generation that is consistent with the dependencies’ requirements.

General notion of secret sharing

Concepts expressing the security level or setting of a given primitive or protocol.

General notion of threshold cryptosystems


General error that arises when decryption fails, for example because there were not enough distinct decryption shares to decrypt a threshold ciphertext.
