EasyCrypt: Computer-Aided Cryptographic Proofs


EasyCrypt is a toolset for reasoning about relational properties of probabilistic computations with adversarial code. Its main application is the construction and verification of game-based cryptographic proofs. EasyCrypt can also be used for reasoning about (vanilla, approximate, and computational) differential privacy.

EasyCrypt has been used to prove the security of emblematic cryptographic constructions, including the Cramer-Shoup cryptosystem, the OAEP padding scheme, the Full Domain Hash signature scheme, the Merkle-Damgård hash function design, and the CBC block cipher mode of operation.


You can get EasyCrypt via our public git repository (browse):

git clone

Installation instructions can be found here?.



You can contact the developers by sending an email to the EasyCrypt support mailing list. However, we encourage you to use the EasyCrypt club mailing list for general questions.

  • CertiCrypt is a fully machine-checked framework for building and verifying game-based cryptographic proofs in the Coq proof assistant. The original version of EasyCrypt featured a mechanism for compiling EasyCrypt scripts into CertiCrypt proofs. This mechanism is currently disabled. For additional information, visit the CertiCrypt website. CertiCrypt was developed actively from 2006 until 2011. Its latest stable version can be obtained from us upon request.
  • ZKCrypt is a cryptographic compiler that outputs Java and C implementations of zero-knowledge protocols from high-level specifications, together with EasyCrypt proofs of their correctness.
  • ZooCrypt? is an automated tool for analyzing the security of padding-based public-key encryption schemes (i.e. schemes built from trapdoor permutations and hash functions). ZooCrypt includes an experimental mechanism to generate EasyCrypt proofs of security of analyzed schemes.
