Title: Create Compact Hash Digests of R Objects
Description: Implementation of a function 'digest()' for the creation
of hash digests of arbitrary R objects (using the md5, sha-1, sha-256,
crc32, xxhash and murmurhash algorithms) permitting easy comparison of R
language objects, as well as a function 'hmac()' to create hash-based
message authentication code.
The md5 algorithm by Ron Rivest is specified in RFC 1321, the sha-1
and sha-256 algorithms are specified in FIPS-180-1 and FIPS-180-2,
and the crc32 algorithm is described in
For md5, sha-1, sha-256 and aes, this package uses small standalone
implementations that were provided by Christophe Devine. For crc32, code
from the zlib library is used. For sha-512, an implementation by Aaron
D. Gifford is used. For xxhash, the implementation by Yann Collet is used.
For murmurhash, an implementation by Shane Day is used.
Please note that this package is not meant to be deployed for
cryptographic purposes for which more comprehensive (and widely
tested) libraries such as OpenSSL should be used.
