Hi,
I am doing a project using the Libtom library to sign sections of a portable executable with ECDSA signature in C language.
I downloaded the doc of libtom but i don't understand anything about the functions and parameters. I just have to understand how to use the library.
Someone can help me to find tutorials and docs more easy to read.
Thanks

Likely the function Is In #include <tomcrypt.h>   but as you mention on the crypto function parameter can be quite unfathomable. There isn't much collateral but except the crypt.pdf manual that is the most comprehensive so far and comment in the functions.

See this in hashing though not directly on ecdsa and roughly you know the structure of the format to call thise function.  The manual chapter 8 and later chapters has pointers too..

Hi,
In the ecc_test.c how does tom use yarrow_prng (line 223) without initialize it?
I copied his code from line 218 to 230 as is, trying to sign a hashed charstream but Visual Studio tell me that there is an error yarrow_prng undeclared identifier.
Below is my code:
#include<stdio.h>
#include<tomcrypt.h>

void main()
{
	unsigned long x;
	unsigned char buf[4][4096];
	int stat, stat2;
	ecc_key usera, userb, pubKey, privKey;

	for (x = 0; x < 16; x++) {
		buf[0][x] = x;
	}
	x = sizeof (buf[1]);
	ecc_sign_hash (buf[0], 16, buf[1], &x, &yarrow_prng, find_prng ("yarrow"), &privKey);
	ecc_verify_hash (buf[1], x, buf[0], 16, &stat, &pubKey);
	buf[0][0] ^= 1;
	ecc_verify_hash (buf[1], x, buf[0], 16, &stat2, &privKey);
	if (!(stat == 1 && stat2 == 0)) { 
		fprintf(stderr, "ecc_verify_hash failed %d, %d, ", stat, stat2);
	}
}

"yarrow_prng" is not declared in the main function.
So have to check the header file such as tomcrypt.h.
Suggest you open a new question thanks
