      crypto: kpp - Key-agreement Protocol Primitives API (KPP) · 4e5f2c40
      Salvatore Benedetto authored
      Add key-agreement protocol primitives (kpp) API which allows to
      implement primitives required by protocols such as DH and ECDH.
      The API is composed mainly by the following functions
       * set_secret() - It allows the user to set his secret, also
         referred to as his private key, along with the parameters
         known to both parties involved in the key-agreement session.
       * generate_public_key() - It generates the public key to be sent to
         the other counterpart involved in the key-agreement session. The
         function has to be called after set_params() and set_secret()
       * generate_secret() - It generates the shared secret for the session
      
      Other functions such as init() and exit() are provided for allowing
      cryptographic hardware to be inizialized properly before use
