=head1 DESCRIPTION

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

SHA-1 (Secure Hash Algorithm) is a cryptographic hash function with a
160 bit output.

SHA1() computes the SHA-1 message digest of the B<n>
bytes at B<d> and places it in B<md> (which must have space for
SHA_DIGEST_LENGTH == 20 bytes of output). If B<md> is NULL, the digest
is placed in a static array. Note: setting B<md> to NULL is B<not thread safe>.

The following functions may be used if the message is not completely
stored in memory:

SHA1_Init() initializes a B<SHA_CTX> structure.

SHA1_Update() can be called repeatedly with chunks of the message to
be hashed (B<len> bytes at B<data>).

SHA1_Final() places the message digest in B<md>, which must have space
for SHA_DIGEST_LENGTH == 20 bytes of output, and erases the B<SHA_CTX>.

The SHA224, SHA256, SHA384 and SHA512 families of functions operate in the
same way as for the SHA1 functions. Note that SHA224 and SHA256 use a
B<SHA256_CTX> object instead of B<SHA_CTX>. SHA384 and SHA512 use B<SHA512_CTX>.
The buffer B<md> must have space for the output from the SHA variant being used
(defined by SHA224_DIGEST_LENGTH, SHA256_DIGEST_LENGTH, SHA384_DIGEST_LENGTH and
SHA512_DIGEST_LENGTH). Also note that, as for the SHA1() function above, the
SHA224(), SHA256(), SHA384() and SHA512() functions are not thread safe if
B<md> is NULL.

=head1 RETURN VALUES

SHA1(), SHA224(), SHA256(), SHA384() and SHA512() return a pointer to the hash
value.

SHA1_Init(), SHA1_Update() and SHA1_Final() and equivalent SHA224, SHA256,
SHA384 and SHA512 functions return 1 for success, 0 otherwise.
