SHA-512 source code


The source code for the SHA-512 algorithm, also called SHA512. Within PolarSSL this module is referred to as SHA4 or SHA-4 as well. This source code is part of the PolarSSL library and represents the most current version in the trunk of the library.

The full algorithm of SHA-512 is further explained in SHA-512 algorithm (Wikipedia).

In addition to being used for the SHA-512 algorithm, the same code also performs the SHA-384 algorithm. In fact, the SHA-384 hash algorithm is nothing more than the result of the SHA-512 algorithm being cut short.

The code only has a single dependency on config.h in the sha4.c source code file. You can remove this inclusion or just create a simple header file to define one or more of the configuration options that the SHA-512 source code has.

Full documentation on the SHA-512 source code can be found in the API documentation for the SHA-4 module.

You can also download it as part of the latest release of PolarSSL.
