Detailed Description#

The class QSslEllipticCurve represents an elliptic curve for use by elliptic-curve cipher algorithms.

Elliptic curves can be constructed from a “short name” (SN) ( fromShortName() ), and by a call to supportedEllipticCurves() .

QSslEllipticCurve instances can be compared for equality and can be used as keys in QHash and QSet . They cannot be used as key in a QMap .

Note

This class is currently only supported in OpenSSL.

class PySide6.QtNetwork.QSslEllipticCurve#

PySide6.QtNetwork.QSslEllipticCurve(QSslEllipticCurve)

Parameters

QSslEllipticCurvePySide6.QtNetwork.QSslEllipticCurve

Constructs an invalid elliptic curve.

static PySide6.QtNetwork.QSslEllipticCurve.fromLongName(name)#
Parameters

name – str

Return type

PySide6.QtNetwork.QSslEllipticCurve

Returns an QSslEllipticCurve instance representing the named curve name. The name is a long name for the curve, whose exact spelling depends on the SSL implementation.

If the given name is not supported, returns an invalid QSslEllipticCurve instance.

Note

The OpenSSL implementation of this function treats the name case-sensitively.

static PySide6.QtNetwork.QSslEllipticCurve.fromShortName(name)#
Parameters

name – str

Return type

PySide6.QtNetwork.QSslEllipticCurve

Returns an QSslEllipticCurve instance representing the named curve name. The name is the conventional short name for the curve, as represented by RFC 4492 (for instance secp521r1), or as NIST short names (for instance P-256). The actual set of recognized names depends on the SSL implementation.

If the given name is not supported, returns an invalid QSslEllipticCurve instance.

Note

The OpenSSL implementation of this function treats the name case-sensitively.

Return type

bool

Returns true if this elliptic curve is a valid curve, false otherwise.
