Function ruma_signatures::verify_event

pub fn verify_event(
    public_key_map: &PublicKeyMap,
    object: &CanonicalJsonObject,
    version: &RoomVersionId
) -> Result<Verified, Error>
Expand description

Verifies that the signed event contains all the required valid signatures.

Some room versions may require signatures from multiple homeservers, so this function takes a map from servers to sets of public keys. Signatures are verified for each required homeserver. All known public keys for a homeserver should be provided. The first one found on the given event will be used.

If the Ok variant is returned by this function, it will contain a Verified value which distinguishes an event with valid signatures and a matching content hash with an event with only valid signatures. See the documentation for Verified for details.


  • public_key_map: A map from entity identifiers to a map from key identifiers to public keys. Generally, entity identifiers are server names—the host/IP/port of a homeserver (e.g. “”) for which a signature must be verified. Key identifiers for each server (e.g. “ed25519:1”) then map to their respective public keys.
  • object: The JSON object of the event that was signed.
  • version: Room version of the given event
