# status works. passes tests. # intro this is a SHA-2 library and example tools, written to directly reflect the description of the algorithm in the FIPS 180-3 standard. it is not optimized for speed. it is in written portable c but assumes ints are 32 bits and long longs are 64 bits. it includes a simple program that can verify against the official test vectors. the code is in the public domain for easy inclusion in other software. # install run "make" to compile the library (sha2.c) and the programs sha256 and sha512. there is no "install" target. see "testing" below for testing against the test vectors. sha256 and sha512 calculate the hash on the data read from their standard input. specifying the -o option makes them run the shorter output of the algorithm, resulting in 224 bits for sha256 and 384 for sha512. # latest version get it from http://www.ueber.net/code/r/sha2 # licence & author all files are in the public domain. this code has been written by mechiel lukkien, reachable at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. # testing for testing, you'll need the test vectors: http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/STM/cavp/documents/shs/shabytetestvectors.zip which is linked as "SHA Test Vectors for Hashing Byte-Oriented Messages" from: http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/STM/cavp/index.html extract the files from shabytetestvectors.zip to this directory and run "make test". each test prints a dot. errors are printed on mismatch. if no errors are printed (and the program exits with success status), all tests passed.
