IronOxide- IronCore Labs Rust SDK

IronOxide is an SDK for accessing IronCore's privacy platform. It is appropriate for both client and server applications.


To include IronOxide in your Rust application, see for the most recent version.

If you are not building a Rust application, you might be interested in one of these SDKs:

  • ironoxide-java - Java bindings for ironoxide. Appropriate for all JVM languages.
  • ironoxide-scala - Scala wrappers around ironoxide-java.
  • ironnode - NodeJS implementation of IronCore's Privacy Platform.
  • ironweb - Javascript implementation of IronCore's Privacy Platform. Appropriate for all modern browsers.

All SDKs are intended to be compatible with one another.

Rust (stable) and libstd required.

cargo build

It may be possible to build with no_std, but we haven't looked at this. We test on a variety of architectures (including Linux-x86_64 MacOSX-x86_64, IOS-aarch64, Android-aarch64), and should generally work anywhere Rust stable works.

Running Unit Tests

IronCore has integration tests that are not runnable by the public. If you are interested in the results, CI runs the integration tests (every test file with *_ops in its name). If you think you need to run the integration tests on a development machine, please open an issue.

To run the unit test suite, use:

cargo t --lib
