[PATCH 00/14] Add support for NIST P521 to ecdsa and ecdh

From: Stefan Berger
Date: Thu Feb 08 2024 - 17:19:22 EST

This series of patches adds support for NIST P521 curve to ecdsa and
ecdh. Test cases are added to both modules.

An issue with the current code in ecdsa and ecdh is that it assumes that
input arrays providing key coordinates for example are arrays of digits
(a 'digit' is a 'u64'). This works well for existing curves, such as
NIST P192/256/384, but does not work for NIST P521 where coordinates
are 8 digits + 2 bytes long. So some of the changes deal with converting
byte arrays to digits and digits to byte array.


Stefan Berger (14):
crypto: ecdsa - Convert byte arrays with key coordinates to digits
crypto: ecdsa - Adjust tests on length of key material
crypto: ecdsa - Adjust res.x mod n for NIST P521
crypto: ecc - Implement vli_mmod_fast_521 for NIST p521
crypto: ecc - For NIST P521 use vli_num_bits to get number of bits
crypto: ecc - Add NIST P521 curve parameters
crypto: ecdsa - Register NIST P521 and extend test suite
x509: Add OID for NIST P521 and extend parser for it
crypto: ecdh - Use properly formatted digits to check for valid key
crypto: ecc - Implement ecc_digits_to_array to convert digits to byte
crypto: Add nbits field to ecc_curve structure
crypto: ecc - Implement and use ecc_curve_get_nbytes to get curve's
crypto: ecdh - Use functions to copy digits from and to array
crypto: ecdh - Add support for NIST P521 and add test case
