DESCRIPTION

SHA-1 (Secure Hash Algorithm) is a cryptographic hash function with a 160-bit output.
SHA1() computes the SHA-1 message digest of the n bytes at d and places it in md, which must have space for SHA_DIGEST_LENGTH == 20 bytes of output. If md is NULL, the digest is placed in a static array, which is not thread safe.
The following functions may be used if the message is not completely stored in memory:
SHA1_Init() initializes a SHA_CTX structure.
SHA1_Update() can be called repeatedly with chunks of the message to be hashed (len bytes at data).
SHA1_Final() places the message digest in md, which must have space for SHA_DIGEST_LENGTH == 20 bytes of output, and erases the SHA_CTX.
The SHA224, SHA256, SHA384, and SHA512 families of functions operate in the same way as the SHA1 functions. Note that SHA224 and SHA256 use a SHA256_CTX object instead of SHA_CTX, and SHA384 and SHA512 use SHA512_CTX. The buffer md must have space for the output from the SHA variant being used: SHA224_DIGEST_LENGTH, SHA256_DIGEST_LENGTH, SHA384_DIGEST_LENGTH, or SHA512_DIGEST_LENGTH bytes.
Applications should use the higher level functions EVP_DigestInit(3) etc. instead of calling the hash functions directly.
The predecessor of SHA-1, SHA, is also implemented, but it should be used only when backward compatibility is required.

RETURN VALUES

SHA1(), SHA224(), SHA256(), SHA384(), and SHA512() return a pointer to the hash value. The other functions return 1 for success or 0 otherwise.
