NAME ^

Digest::Keccak - Perl interface to the Keccak digest algorithm

SYNOPSIS ^

    # Functional interface
    use Digest::Keccak qw(keccak_256 keccak_256_hex keccak_256_base64);

    $digest = keccak_256($data);
    $digest = keccak_256_hex($data);
    $digest = keccak_256_base64($data);

    # Object-oriented interface
    use Digest::Keccak;

    $ctx = Digest::Keccak->new(256);

    $ctx->add($data);
    $ctx->addfile(*FILE);

    $digest = $ctx->digest;
    $digest = $ctx->hexdigest;
    $digest = $ctx->b64digest;

DESCRIPTION ^

The Digest::Keccak module provides an interface to the Keccak message digest algorithm. Keccak is a candidate in the NIST SHA-3 competition.

This interface follows the conventions set forth by the Digest module.

FUNCTIONS ^

The following functions are provided by the Digest::Keccak module. None of these functions are exported by default.

keccak_224($data, ...)

keccak_256($data, ...)

keccak_384($data, ...)

keccak_512($data, ...)

Logically joins the arguments into a single string, and returns its Keccak digest encoded as a binary string.

keccak_224_hex($data, ...)

keccak_256_hex($data, ...)

keccak_384_hex($data, ...)

keccak_512_hex($data, ...)

Logically joins the arguments into a single string, and returns its Keccak digest encoded as a hexadecimal string.

keccak_224_base64($data, ...)

keccak_256_base64($data, ...)

keccak_384_base64($data, ...)

keccak_512_base64($data, ...)

Logically joins the arguments into a single string, and returns its Keccak digest encoded as a Base64 string, without any trailing padding.

METHODS ^

The object-oriented interface to Digest::Keccak is identical to that described by Digest, except for the following:

new

    $keccak = Digest::Keccak->new(256)

The constructor requires the algorithm to be specified. It must be one of: 224, 256, 384, 512.

algorithm

hashsize

Returns the algorithm used by the object.
