Elliptic curve cryptography

Mirage-crypto-ec implements public key cryptography with named elliptic curves. Ephemeral key exchanges with Diffie-Hellman and digital signatures (ECDSA) are implemented.

The arithmetic operations uses code generated by fiat-crypto which is proven to consume a constant amount of time, independent of the input values.

type error = [
  1. | `Invalid_range
  2. | `Invalid_format
  3. | `Invalid_length
  4. | `Not_on_curve
  5. | `At_infinity
  6. | `Low_order

The type for errors.
