This library has not been audited.

BabyJubJub is an elliptic curve optimized for secure, efficient cryptographic operations in constrained environments like blockchain and zero-knowledge proofs. It's designed for fast, privacy-preserving transactions, balancing cryptographic strength with performance, making it ideal for modern cryptographic solutions.

📜 Usage

import { packPoint, unpackPoint, Base8, mulPointEscalar, Point, addPoint } from "@zk-kit/baby-jubjub"

// Define two points on the BabyJubJub curve.
const p1: Point<bigint> = [BigInt(0), BigInt(1)] // Point at infinity (neutral element).
const p2: Point<bigint> = [BigInt(1), BigInt(0)] // Example point.

// Add the two points on the curve.
const p3 = addPoint(p1, p2)

// Add the result with Base8, another point on the curve, to get a new point.
const secretScalar = addPoint(Base8, p3)

// Multiply the base point by the x-coordinate of the secret scalar to get the public key.
const publicKey = mulPointEscalar(Base8, secretScalar[0])

// Pack the public key into a compressed format.
const packedPoint = packPoint(publicKey)

// Unpack the compressed public key back into its original form.
const unpackedPoint = unpackPoint(packedPoint)

if (unpackedPoint) {
    console.log(publicKey[0] === unpackedPoint[0]) // true, checks if x-coordinates match
    console.log(publicKey[1] === unpackedPoint[1]) // true, checks if y-coordinates match
