Test vectors (points) for Ed25519

I am trying to verify an Ed25519 implementation, but I can't find any test vectors for the curve points. All test vectors focus directly on signature constructions (EdDSA).

I tried to use https://asecuritysite.com/ecc/nacl07 but that seems to give the wrong results. For instance, it reports that the affine coordinates of the point 5G are:

x = 49384254074273129950593193138861175954739393969723597783743362437597626495704

y = 100993238402330024465140605900252962566919016078863090678826226962847795431661

but that's not even on the curve... Are there any reliable, reference test vectors to validate generic operations on Ed25519?

• There is already python code in the Ed25519 section Section 6 Apr 24, 2022 at 19:42

Just use a reliable library to generate your test vectors. For example, using elliptic:

const elliptic = require('elliptic');
const ed25519 = new require('elliptic').eddsa('ed25519');
const BN = require('bn.js');

function printPointInfo(desc, P) {
console.log(${desc}: hex:  + elliptic.utils.toHex(ed25519.encodePoint(P))); console.log(${desc}: x-coord:  + P.getX());
console.log(\${desc}: y-coord:  + P.getY());
console.log();
}

let G = ed25519.curve.g;
let a = '12581e70a192aeb9ac1411b36d11fc06393db55998190491c063807a6b4d730d';
let b = '0c2340b974bebfb9cb3f14e991bca432b57fb33f7c4d79e15f64209076afcd00';
let aG = G.mul(elliptic.utils.intFromLE(a));
let bG = G.mul(elliptic.utils.intFromLE(b));
printPointInfo('G', G);
printPointInfo('2G', G.mul(new BN(2)));
printPointInfo('5G', G.mul(new BN(5)));
printPointInfo('aG', aG);
printPointInfo('bG', bG);


Expected output:
