libmhash Thread-safe hash library

Mhash is a thread-safe hash library, implemented in C, and provides a uniform interface to a large number of hash algorithms. These algorithms can be used to compute checksums, message digests, and other signatures. The HMAC support implements the basics for message authentication, following RFC 2104.

Algorithms currently supplied are:

CRC-32, CRC-32B, ALDER-32, MD-2, MD-4, MD-5, RIPEMD-128, RIPEMD-160, RIPEMD-256, RIPEMD-320, SHA-1, SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-512, HAVAL-128, HAVAL-160, HAVAL-192, HAVAL-256, TIGER, TIGER-128, TIGER-160, GOST, WHIRLPOOL, SNEFRU-128, SNEFRU-256.
