Digest Algorithm Description Reference
ADLER32 The ADLER32 algorithm is a checksum specified in RFC1950 "ZLIB Compressed Data Format". The 32-bit output is encoded in hexadecimal (using between 1 and 8 ASCII characters from 0-9, A-F, and a-f; leading 0's are allowed). For example, ADLER32=03da0195 and ADLER32=3DA0195 are both valid checksums for the 4-byte message "Wiki". [RFC1950][RFC3309][Paul_Millar]
MD5 The MD5 algorithm, as specified in [RFC1321]. The output of this algorithm is encoded using the base64 encoding [RFC4648]. [RFC1321][RFC4648][RFC5843]
SHA The SHA-1 algorithm [http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/PubsFIPS.html][National Institute of Standards and Technology. Secure Hash Standard (SHS). FEDERAL INFORMATION PROCESSING STANDARDS PUBLICATION 180-3, U.S. Department of Commerce, October 2008.]. The output of this algorithm is encoded using the base64 encoding [RFC4648]. [http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/PubsFIPS.html][National Institute of Standards and Technology. Secure Hash Standard (SHS). FEDERAL INFORMATION PROCESSING STANDARDS PUBLICATION 180-3, U.S. Department of Commerce, October 2008.][RFC4648][RFC5843]
SHA-256 The SHA-256 algorithm [http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/PubsFIPS.html][National Institute of Standards and Technology. Secure Hash Standard (SHS). FEDERAL INFORMATION PROCESSING STANDARDS PUBLICATION 180-3, U.S. Department of Commerce, October 2008.]. The output of this algorithm is encoded using the base64 encoding [RFC4648]. [http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/PubsFIPS.html][National Institute of Standards and Technology. Secure Hash Standard (SHS). FEDERAL INFORMATION PROCESSING STANDARDS PUBLICATION 180-3, U.S. Department of Commerce, October 2008.][RFC4648][RFC5843]
SHA-512 The SHA-512 algorithm [http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/PubsFIPS.html][National Institute of Standards and Technology. Secure Hash Standard (SHS). FEDERAL INFORMATION PROCESSING STANDARDS PUBLICATION 180-3, U.S. Department of Commerce, October 2008.]. The output of this algorithm is encoded using the base64 encoding [RFC4648]. [http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/PubsFIPS.html][National Institute of Standards and Technology. Secure Hash Standard (SHS). FEDERAL INFORMATION PROCESSING STANDARDS PUBLICATION 180-3, U.S. Department of Commerce, October 2008.][RFC4648][RFC5843]
UNIXsum The algorithm computed by the UNIX ``sum'' command, as defined by the Single UNIX Specification, Version 2 [The Open Group. The Single UNIX Specification, Version 2 - 6 Vol Set for UNIX 98. Document number T912, The Open Group, February 1997.]. The output of this algorithm is an ASCII decimal-digit string representing the 16-bit checksum, which is the first word of the output of the UNIX ``sum'' command. [The Open Group. The Single UNIX Specification, Version 2 - 6 Vol Set for UNIX 98. Document number T912, The Open Group, February 1997.]
UNIXcksum The algorithm computed by the UNIX ``cksum'' command, as defined by the Single UNIX Specification, Version 2 [The Open Group. The Single UNIX Specification, Version 2 - 6 Vol Set for UNIX 98. Document number T912, The Open Group, February 1997.]. The output of this algorithm is an ASCII digit string representing the 32-bit CRC, which is the first word of the output of the UNIX ``cksum'' command. [The Open Group. The Single UNIX Specification, Version 2 - 6 Vol Set for UNIX 98. Document number T912, The Open Group, February 1997.]
