Description

An SHA-3 implementation written in Crystal.

Supports: - The FIPS 202 SHA-3 standard (`Digest::SHA3`) - Keccak\[3\] (`Digest::Keccak3`)

The main difference between the two is the value of the first byte of padding set after the input in the buffer. For SHA-3, this byte is `6u8`. For Keccak it is `1u8`.

Programming language: Crystal

crystal-sha3 Build Status

An SHA-3 implementation written in Crystal.

Supports:

  • The FIPS 202 SHA-3 standard (Digest::SHA3)
  • Keccak[3] (Digest::Keccak3)

The main difference between the two is the value of the first byte of padding set after the input in the buffer. For SHA-3, this byte is 6u8. For Keccak[3] it is 1u8.

Usage

Add the dependency to your shard.yml:

dependencies:
  sha3:
    github: OscarBarrett/crystal-sha3
    version: ~> 0.3

Then in your code:

require "sha3"

SHA-3

# Defaults to SHA3-512
Digest::SHA3.hexdigest("abc123")
# => 3274f8455be84b8c7d79f9bd93e6c8520d13f6bd2855f3bb9c006ca9f3cce25d4b924d0370f8af4e27a350fd2baeef58bc37e0f4e4a403fe64c98017fa012757

digest = Digest::SHA3.new(256)
digest.update("abc123")
digest.hexdigest
# => f58fa3df820114f56e1544354379820cff464c9c41cb3ca0ad0b0843c9bb67ee

Keccak3

# Defaults to a hash size of 512
Digest::Keccak3.hexdigest("abc123")
# => 17c4bf22aaa8fcd7ff070fd3435619b5666dc3eac901872c73f091d9f3753cd871161269f14741e3b263c616e9f4bb4314abcbb271b2796d14eb89434a0afd03

digest = Digest::Keccak3.new(256)
digest.update("abc123")
digest.hexdigest
# => 719accc61a9cc126830e5906f9d672d06eab6f8597287095a2c55a8b775e7016

Running specs
