NAME

SHA1, SHA1_Init, SHA1_Update, SHA1_Final - Secure Hash Algorithm  

SYNOPSIS

 #include <openssl/sha.h>

 unsigned char *SHA1(const unsigned char *d, unsigned long n,
                  unsigned char *md);

 int SHA1_Init(SHA_CTX *c);
 int SHA1_Update(SHA_CTX *c, const void *data,
                  unsigned long len);
 int SHA1_Final(unsigned char *md, SHA_CTX *c);

 

DESCRIPTION

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.

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.

Applications should use the higher level functions EVP_DigestInit(3) etc. instead of calling the hash functions directly.

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

RETURN VALUES

SHA1() returns a pointer to the hash value.

SHA1_Init(), SHA1_Update() and SHA1_Final() return 1 for success, 0 otherwise.

HISTORY

SHA1(), SHA1_Init(), SHA1_Update() and SHA1_Final() are available in all versions of SSLeay and OpenSSL.
