About

Merkle Tree implementation which supports:

  • Calculating merkle root
  • Generating proofs
  • Validation proofs

Uses Keccak-256 hash function in tree building.

Merkle root is calculated from a perfect (complete) binary tree. If there are not enough nodes provided, tree is padded with hashes of empty strings.

Installation

Requirements: python3.7

source setenv.sh install

Documentation

add_node(value)

Adds node to a tree. value has to be hex string.

> tree = MerkleTree()
> tree.add_node('8633f3f58bd5719152d1f244ad09616dbad359515721e8a59ad0eb1823ae3531')

get_node(index)

Returns node hash as hex string.

> tree = MerkleTree()
> tree.add_node('8633f3f58bd5719152d1f244ad09616dbad359515721e8a59ad0eb1823ae3531')
> tree.get_node(0)
'8633f3f58bd5719152d1f244ad09616dbad359515721e8a59ad0eb1823ae3531'

make()

Build a complete tree from given nodes.

> tree = MerkleTree()
> tree.add_node('8633f3f58bd5719152d1f244ad09616dbad359515721e8a59ad0eb1823ae3531')
> tree.add_node('c5d2460186f7233c927e7db2dcc703c0e500b653ca82273b7bfad8045d85a470')
> tree.make()

get_root()

Returns merkle root for a complete tree.

> tree = MerkleTree()
> tree.add_node('8633f3f58bd5719152d1f244ad09616dbad359515721e8a59ad0eb1823ae3531')

> tree.make()
> tree.get_root()
'cd179bae7880f32ab6090519099d3ee0b196d70a620cdce9ea3a823e6bdb071c'

get_proof(index)

Returns proof for a given tree index.

> tree = MerkleTree()
> tree.add_node('8633f3f58bd5719152d1f244ad09616dbad359515721e8a59ad0eb1823ae3531')

get_proof_for_hash(hash_value)

Returns proof for a given node hash value.

> tree = MerkleTree()
> tree.add_node('8633f3f58bd5719152d1f244ad09616dbad359515721e8a59ad0eb1823ae3531')

validate_proof(proof, target_hash, merkle_root)

Validates that provided target_hash and proof form a merkle root equal to provided one.

> tree = MerkleTree()
> tree.add_node('8633f3f58bd5719152d1f244ad09616dbad359515721e8a59ad0eb1823ae3531')

> tree.make()
> tree.validate_proof([{'left': '8633f3f58bd5719152d1f244ad09616dbad359515721e8a59ad0eb1823ae3531'}], 'c5d2460186f7233c927e7db2dcc703c0e500b653ca82273b7bfad8045d85a470', 'cd179bae7880f32ab6090519099d3ee0b196d70a620cdce9ea3a823e6bdb071c')
True

Usage

Add nodes and make tree

> tree = MerkleTree()

# raw bytes or str bytes
> tree.add_node('00')
> tree.add_node('01')
> tree.add_node('02')

# extra node is added during make to provide a perfect binary tree
> tree.make()

Get root and proof

> tree.get_root()
'8633f3f58bd5719152d1f244ad09616dbad359515721e8a59ad0eb1823ae3531'
> tree.get_proof(2) # node index

Validate proof

> proof = [{'right': 'c5d2460186f7233c927e7db2dcc703c0e500b653ca82273b7bfad8045d85a470'}, {'left': '49d03a195e239b52779866b33024210fc7dc66e9c2998975c0aa45c1702549d5'}]

> tree.validate_proof(proof, '02', root)
True
