MD4Init MD4Update MD4Pad MD4Final MD4End MD4File MD4FileChunk MD4Data - calculate the RSA Data Security, Inc., ``MD4'' message digest
MD2 is the slowest, MD4 is the fastest and MD5 is somewhere in the middle. MD2 can only be used for Privacy-Enhanced Mail. MD4 has now been broken; it should only be used where necessary for backward compatibility. MD5 has not yet (1999-02-11) been broken, but sufficient attacks have been made that its security is in some doubt. The attacks on both MD4 and MD5 are both in the nature of finding ``collisions'' [en] that is, multiple inputs which hash to the same value; it is still unlikely for an attacker to be able to determine the exact original input given a hash value.
and MD4Final ();
functions are the core functions. Allocate an Vt MD4_CTX , initialize it with MD4Init (,);
run over the data with MD4Update (,);
and finally extract the result using MD4Final (.);
function can be used to pad message data in same way as done by MD4Final ();
without terminating calculation.
function is a wrapper for MD4Final ();
which converts the return value to a 33-character (including the terminating '\0') ASCII string which represents the 128 bits in hexadecimal.
function calculates the digest of a file, and uses MD4End ();
to return the result. If the file cannot be opened, a null pointer is returned. The MD4FileChunk ();
function is similar to MD4File (,);
but it only calculates the digest over a byte-range of the file specified, starting at Fa offset and spanning Fa length bytes. If the Fa length parameter is specified as 0, or more than the length of the remaining part of the file, MD4FileChunk ();
calculates the digest from Fa offset to the end of file. The MD4Data ();
function calculates the digest of a chunk of data in memory, and uses MD4End ();
to return the result.
or MD4Data (,);
the Fa buf argument can be a null pointer, in which case the returned string is allocated with malloc(3) and subsequently must be explicitly deallocated using free(3) after use. If the Fa buf argument is non-null it must point to at least 33 characters of buffer space.
