Pure Go/ASM implementation of CryptoNight hash function and some of its variant, without any CGO binding.

== Features

  • Support v0, v1, v2 variants.
  • No CGO hell, making builds easier and faster.
  • Hardware acceleration available for amd64 architecture.
  • Use of an internal sync.Pool to manage caches, since it is memory hard.

== Install [source,shell]

$ go get -u ekyu.moe/cryptonight

A simple CLI utility is also available with go get -u ekyu.moe/cryptonight/cmd/cnhash.

[source,plain]

Usage of cnhash: -bench Benchmark mode, don't do anything else. -in-file string Read input from file instead of stdin. -in-hex Read input in hex instead of binary. -include-diff Append the difficulty of the result hash to the output. If -out-binary is not given, the difficulty will be appeneded to the output in decimal with comma separated (CSV friendly) , otherwise it will be appeneded to the hash binary (which is 32 bytes long) directly, in 8 bytes little endian. -out-binary Produce output in binary (little endian) instead of hex. -out-file string Produce output to file instead of stdout. -variant int Set CryptoNight variant, default 0. This applies to benchmark mode as well.

== Example [source,go]

package main

import ( "fmt"

"ekyu.moe/cryptonight"

)

func main() { blob := []byte("Hello, 世界") fmt.Printf("%x\n", cryptonight.Sum(blob, 0)) // original // Output: 0999794e4e20d86e6a81b54495aeb370b6a9ae795fb5af4f778afaf07c0b2e0e

blob = []byte("variant 1 requires at least 43 bytes of input.")
fmt.Printf("%x\n", cryptonight.Sum(blob, 1)) // variant 1
// Output: 261124c5a6dca5d4aa3667d328a94ead9a819ae714e1f1dc113ceeb14f1ecf99

blob = []byte("Monero is cash for a connected world. It’s fast, private, and secure.")
fmt.Printf("%x\n", cryptonight.Sum(blob, 2)) // variant 2
// Output: abb61f40468c70234051e4bb5e8b670812473b2a71e02c9633ef94996a621b96

}

== Development While this repository is already out-of-box, which means what you need to do to use it in your code is just a go get (or dep ensure -add whatsoever), in case you want to hack on this library, some additional steps are required since it uses code generation.

=== Preprocess If you modified a source file in this library that uses C-kind macros (the comments tells), in order to expand them and generate the final code, https://linux.die.net/man/1/cpp[cpp(1)] is needed, which a part of GCC toolchain and should be already available if you have installed gcc (or MinGW for Windows) in your machine.

Once some modification is made in a file that used macro, simply use go generate ekyu.moe/cryptonight/\... to run the gcc preprocessor on them.

=== Packages information ekyu.moe/cryptonight/internal/aes:: From Go's crypto/aes. Since CryptoNight's use of AES is quite non-standard and not intended for encryption, you must use this package this package with care for project that's not CryptoNight associated.

ekyu.moe/cryptonight/internal/sha3:: From Go's golang.org/x/crypto/sha3. All CryptoNight specific additional works are made in cn.go only; other files are untouched at all.

ekyu.moe/cryptonight/groestl:: Grøstl-256 implementation. It is directly ported from C and not quite optimized.

ekyu.moe/cryptonight/jh:: JH-256 implementation. It is directly ported from C and not quite optimized.

=== Tests, coverage and benchmarks [source,shell]

$ go test -v -race -coverprofile=coverage.txt -covermode=atomic $ go tool cover -html=coverage.txt $ go test -v -run=^$ -bench=. -benchmem

=== TODO

  • [ ] ARM64-specific optimization
  • [x] Tests on other architectures
  • [x] Improve performance for variant 2
  • [ ] Improve performance for groestl and jh
  • [x] Try a nearly full assembly implementation (except for the final hash) for amd64
