DESCRIPTION

Applications should use the higher level functions EVP_DigestInit etc. instead of calling the hash functions directly.

SHA-1 (Secure Hash Algorithm) is a cryptographic hash function with a 160 bit output.

SHA1() computes the SHA-1 message digest of the n bytes at d and places it in md (which must have space for SHA_DIGEST_LENGTH == 20 bytes of output). If md is NULL, the digest is placed in a static array. Note: setting md to NULL is not thread safe.

The following functions may be used if the message is not completely stored in memory:

SHA1_Init() initializes a SHA_CTX structure.

SHA1_Update() can be called repeatedly with chunks of the message to be hashed (len bytes at data).

SHA1_Final() places the message digest in md, which must have space for SHA_DIGEST_LENGTH == 20 bytes of output, and erases the SHA_CTX.

The SHA224, SHA256, SHA384 and SHA512 families of functions operate in the same way as for the SHA1 functions. Note that SHA224 and SHA256 use a SHA256_CTX object instead of SHA_CTX. SHA384 and SHA512 use SHA512_CTX. The buffer md must have space for the output from the SHA variant being used (defined by SHA224_DIGEST_LENGTH, SHA256_DIGEST_LENGTH, SHA384_DIGEST_LENGTH and SHA512_DIGEST_LENGTH). Also note that, as for the SHA1() function above, the SHA224(), SHA256(), SHA384() and SHA512() functions are not thread safe if md is NULL.

The predecessor of SHA-1, SHA, is also implemented, but it should be used only when backward compatibility is required.

RETURN VALUES

SHA1(), SHA224(), SHA256(), SHA384() and SHA512() return a pointer to the hash value.

SHA1_Init(), SHA1_Update() and SHA1_Final() and equivalent SHA224, SHA256, SHA384 and SHA512 functions return 1 for success, 0 otherwise.
