FEDORA-2020-912055a649 created by orion 7 months ago for Fedora 32
stable
much faster (around 20x)
dedicated API for ECDH

Bug fixes:

from curves import * will now correctly import BRAINPOOLP256r1 and
BRAINPOOLP320r1 curves.

New features:

ECDH operations have a public explicit API.
Large hashes are now supported with small curves (e.g. SHA-256 can be used
with NIST192p).
VerifyingKey now supports the precompute() method to further speed up
signature verification with the given instance of the key.

New API:

VerifyingKey, SigningKey, Public_key, Private_key and
CurveFp now have __eq__ methods.
ecdsa.ecdh module and ECDH class.
PointJacobi added.
VerifyingKey.verify_digest, SigningKey.sign_digest and
SigningKey.sign_digest_deterministic methods now accept allow_truncate
argument to enable use of hashes larger than the curve order.
VerifyingKey from_pem and from_der now accept hashfunc parameter
like other from* methods.
VerifyingKey has precompute method now.
VerifyingKey.from_public_point may now not perform validation of public
point when validate_point=False argument is passed to method.
CurveFp constructor now accepts the h parameter - the cofactor of the
elliptic curve, it's used for selection of algorithm of public point
verification.

Performance:

randrange now will now perform much fewer calls to system random number
generator.
PointJacobi introduced and used as the underlying implementation; speeds up
the library by a factor of about 20.
Library has now optional dependencies on gmpy and gmpy2. When they are
available, the elliptic curve calculations will be about 3 times faster.

Maintenance:

expected minimum version of six module (1.9.0) is now specified explicitly
in setup.py and tested against.
Significantly faster test suite execution.
