RIPEMD-160 is a cryptographic hash function with a 160-bit output.

RIPEMD160() computes the RIPEMD-160 message digest of the n bytes at d and places it in md, which must have space for RIPEMD160_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:

RIPEMD160_Init() initializes a RIPEMD160_CTX structure.

RIPEMD160_Update() can be called repeatedly with chunks of the message to be hashed (len bytes at data).

RIPEMD160_Final() places the message digest in md, which must have space for RIPEMD160_DIGEST_LENGTH == 20 bytes of output, and erases the RIPEMD160_CTX.

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

RIPEMD160() returns a pointer to the hash value.

RIPEMD160_Init(), RIPEMD160_Update(), and RIPEMD160_Final() return 1 for success or 0 otherwise.

RIPEMD160(), RIPEMD160_Init(), RIPEMD160_Update(), and RIPEMD160_Final() first appeared in SSLeay 0.9.0 and have been available since OpenBSD 2.4.
