            Python Sending String and Bytes over UDP in One Message
            Asked 2022-Mar-20 at 17:20

            In this program I am trying to send key shares though UDP broadcast to the client(s). The issue I'm facing is with encoding of strings and bytes into one message, there are number of errors are produced.

            I would like to send from the server to the client a random ID and a key share, which include index (integer) and share (16-bytes string). I have added ":" between id, index and share to be able to manage it at the client later (by splitting the message into parts).

            I have tried converting everything into string, such as: message = (str(id) + ":" + str(index) + ":").encode('utf-16') + str(share, 'utf-16'). But this causing issues in key reconstruction at the client, where the key share should be a byte string and it looks like b"b'\xff\xfej\xb9\xdb\x8c&\x7f\x06\x87\x98Ig\xfc\x1eJ\xf6\xb5'".

            Then I have tried encoding id and index to utf-16 and sending a message to the client, and then decode it, but this does not let me reconstruct the key and I'm getting an error: ValueError: The encoded value must be an integer or a 16 byte string.

            When I decode at the client, the data looks like this: f91f7e52-865d-49bc-bb45-ad80255e9ef9:5:륪賛缦蜆䦘ﱧ䨞뗶. However, some shares after decoding do not contain dilimiter and thus not being able to split.

            Is there a way the server can send all the following data in one message (id, index, share), so that it can be separated correctly at the client?

            The desired output at server would be (id = string, index = int, share = 16-byte string):



            Answered 2022-Mar-20 at 17:20

            The UUID can be encoded as 16 bytes value, the integer e.g. as 4 bytes and and share has a length of 16 bytes. Therefore the data can be simply concatenated without delimiter and separated by their lengths, e.g.:

            Shamir's Secret Sharing doesn't work with large ints
            Asked 2021-Dec-13 at 16:23

            I am to use a Python example of Shamir's Secret Sharing from Wikipedia. When I give it number a larger than it gives completely different output.

            Why doesn't it work after that number and is there a way to get around this?



            Answered 2021-Dec-13 at 16:21

            The reason why is that all calculations are happening modulo 2 ** 127 - 1 which is 170,141,183,460,469,231,731,687,303,715,884,105,727.

            HashiCorp Vault auto unsealed with Azure Vault - still shows - Recovery Seal Type as shamir
            Asked 2021-Sep-03 at 09:23

            Have installed Vault on Azure Kubernetes and have configured the auto unseal with Azure Key vault. Initially post the deployment , Vault status returns with Seal type as "azurekeyvault" and sealed as true. Once I have initiated with below command.

            kubectl exec -it hashivault-0 -n vault -- vault operator init -recovery-shares=1 -recovery-threshold=1

            Post that Seal type is changed as "shamir" but the Vault is accessible and active.

            Is this expected behavior or is it not referring to Azure Key vault certificates for unsealing ?



            Answered 2021-Sep-03 at 09:23

            As per the Official Document of Hashicorp , It seems to be expected behavior .

            When you seal your vault's status will be Recovery Seal Type : azurekeyvault and Sealed : true But after the vault operator is initialized the vault's status will be Recovery Seal Type : shamir and sealed : false as per auto-unseal feature.

            Modular arithmetic does not work in Threshold signature (TSS) implementation
            Asked 2021-Jul-05 at 20:52

            I was implementing threshold signatures protocol described in this paper and I run into a case where it fails and I don't understand reasons why. In the end, u and x should be the same, but they are not. I would appreciate any advice that will help me to find the bug.

            This is JS code, it can be executed in browser console



            Answered 2021-Jul-05 at 20:52

            Your code is almost correct, just missing the final modulus at the end. Change the last line to

            (u - x) % n;

            The (u -x) is exactly n.

            Calculate a formula in a Finite Field
            Asked 2021-Jun-18 at 04:05

            I am trying to transform a formula over to a finite-field equivalent of that formula.

            The formula can be seen below:

            Now I have this implemented and it works correctly, but I need this in a finite-field, which means that I introduce a p, let's say p = 183269 andd take mod p but how exactly does the above formula change? Do I just mod p after i'm done calculating the formula normally?


            I have the polynomial: f(x) = 1234 + 631x + 442x^2 I generated 6 random points: (x, f(x) mod p)



            Answered 2021-Jun-17 at 18:32

            Do I just mod p after i'm done calculating the formula normally?

            No. First you have to compute a multiplicative inverse of x[m] - x[j] modulo p. That is a tricky part to implement efficiently. The rest is indeed just multiplications and summation modulo p.

            Keep in mind that floating point operations cannot work in the finite field. Everything there is precise in a sense of integers.

            PS: to address a concerns about division, this is how division works in a finite field:

            y/x is in fact y * z where z is a multiplicative inverse of x, that is x * z = 1 mod p. For example, let's use 7 for p. A multiplicative inverse of, say 2 is 4: 2 * 4 == 8 (== 1 mod 7). This means that 3/2 mod 7 is 3 * 4 mod 7, that is 5.



            Encryption using libsodium and need to generate public and private keys using crypto_box_keypair
            Asked 2021-Apr-25 at 20:59

            I have been working with the libsodium library to implement Shamir secret sharing and trying to test the implementation done by dark crystal


            Implementation is something like this



            Answered 2021-Apr-25 at 20:59

            It's not clear to me why you want to convert a key pair created with encryptionKeypair() with crypto_sign_ed25519_sk_to_curve25519() or crypto_sign_ed25519_pk_to_curve25519().

            The latter two methods convert a secret or public Ed25519 key (used in the context of signing) to a secret or public X25519 key (used in the context of key exchange).

            encryptionKeypair() applies crypto_box_keypair() and thus already creates an X25519 key pair, so conversion is not necessary (and not possible).

            A working use of the conversion methods would be, e.g. using crypto_sign_keypair(), which generates an Ed25519 key pair:
