Xoocycle

Xoocycle is an implementation of the Keccak Team's Xoodyak hash and AEAD construction in under 275 lines of standard C, compatible with C90 and later versions.

This code has not been audited, either for general integrity, cryptographic suitability, or compliance to the Xoodyak specification. It does pass the Xoodyak test vectors, and has been analysed with Flawfinder, Splint, Infer, Clang SA, and Valgrind to protect against some trivial errors. Only little-endian platforms are supported.

The header file xoocycle.h defines twenty exported names, seventeen of which use the standard prefix xoocycle. The remaining three are the modern type names u8, u32, and size.

The code is available under the Apache License 2.0.

Xoodyak examples

The file xoohash.c is a full script that takes the Xoodyak-256 hash of stdin. The file xootest.c contains an AEAD example. This is an excerpt from the former script:

  xoocycle_cyclist(&cyc, xoocycle_empty, 0, xoocycle_empty, 0,
                   xoocycle_empty, 0);
  while (1) {
    len = read(STDIN_FILENO, io, IO);
    if (len < 0) {
      fprintf(stderr, "error\n");
      exit(EXIT_FAILURE);
    }
    if (len == 0) {
      break;
    }
    xoocycle_absorb(&cyc, io, len);
  }
  xoocycle_squeeze(&cyc, io, HASH);
  print8(io, HASH);
  xoocycle_erase(&cyc);

When xoohash.c is run on itself, it produces:

Acknowledgements

Xoodyak was created by the Keccak Team. The xoodoo32 permutation function in xoocycle.c is based on a public domain version by Odzhan.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
