Abstract

   The United States of America has adopted a suite of Secure Hash
   Algorithms (SHAs), including four beyond SHA-1, as part of a Federal
   Information Processing Standard (FIPS), specifically SHA-224 (RFC
   3874), SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512.  The purpose of this document
   is to make source code performing these hash functions conveniently
   available to the Internet community.  The sample code supports input
   strings of arbitrary bit length.  SHA-1's sample code from RFC 3174
   has also been updated to handle input strings of arbitrary bit
   length.  Most of the text herein was adapted by the authors from FIPS
   180-2.

   Code to perform SHA-based HMACs, with arbitrary bit length text, is
   also included.

1.  Overview of Contents

   NOTE: Much of the text below is taken from [FIPS180-2] and assertions
   therein of the security of the algorithms described are made by the
   US Government, the author of [FIPS180-2], and not by the authors of
   this document.

   The text below specifies Secure Hash Algorithms, SHA-224 [RFC3874],
   SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512, for computing a condensed
   representation of a message or a data file. (SHA-1 is specified in
   [RFC3174].)  When a message of any length < 2^64 bits (for SHA-224
   and SHA-256) or < 2^128 bits (for SHA-384 and SHA-512) is input to
   one of these algorithms, the result is an output called a message
   digest.  The message digests range in length from 224 to 512 bits,
   depending on the algorithm.  Secure hash algorithms are typically
   used with other cryptographic algorithms, such as digital signature
   algorithms and keyed hash authentication codes, or in the generation
   of random numbers [RFC4086].

   The four algorithms specified in this document are called secure
   because it is computationally infeasible to (1) find a message that
   corresponds to a given message digest, or (2) find two different
   messages that produce the same message digest.  Any change to a
   message in transit will, with very high probability, result in a
   different message digest.  This will result in a verification failure
   when the secure hash algorithm is used with a digital signature
   algorithm or a keyed-hash message authentication algorithm.

   The code provided herein supports input strings of arbitrary bit
   length.  SHA-1's sample code from [RFC3174] has also been updated to
   handle input strings of arbitrary bit length.  See Section 1.1 for
   license information for this code.

   Section 2 below defines the terminology and functions used as
   building blocks to form these algorithms.  Section 3 describes the
   fundamental operations on words from which these algorithms are
   built.  Section 4 describes how messages are padded up to an integral
   multiple of the required block size and then parsed into blocks.
   Section 5 defines the constants and the composite functions used to
   specify these algorithms.  Section 6 gives the actual specification
   for the SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512 functions.  Section 7
   provides pointers to the specification of HMAC keyed message
   authentication codes based on the SHA algorithms.  Section 8 gives
   sample code for the SHA algorithms and Section 9 code for SHA-based
   HMACs.  The SHA-based HMACs will accept arbitrary bit length text.

2.  Notation for Bit Strings and Integers

   The following terminology related to bit strings and integers will be
   used:

    a.  A hex digit is an element of the set {0, 1, ... , 9, A, ... ,
        F}.  A hex digit is the representation of a 4-bit string.
        Examples: 7 = 0111, A = 1010.

    b.  A word equals a 32-bit or 64-bit string, which may be
        represented as a sequence of 8 or 16 hex digits, respectively.
        To convert a word to hex digits, each 4-bit string is converted
        to its hex equivalent as described in (a) above.  Example:

        1010 0001 0000 0011 1111 1110 0010 0011 = A103FE23.

        Throughout this document, the "big-endian" convention is used
        when expressing both 32-bit and 64-bit words, so that within
        each word the most significant bit is shown in the left-most bit
        position.

    c.  An integer may be represented as a word or pair of words.

        An integer between 0 and 2^32 - 1 inclusive may be represented
        as a 32-bit word.  The least significant four bits of the
        integer are represented by the right-most hex digit of the word
        representation.  Example: the integer 291 = 2^8+2^5+2^1+2^0 =
        256+32+2+1 is represented by the hex word 00000123.

        The same holds true for an integer between 0 and 2^64-1
        inclusive, which may be represented as a 64-bit word.

Top      ToC       Page 5 
        If Z is an integer, 0 <= z < 2^64, then z = (2^32)x + y where 0
        <= x < 2^32 and 0 <= y < 2^32.  Since x and y can be represented
        as words X and Y, respectively, z can be represented as the pair
        of words (X,Y).

    d.  block = 512-bit or 1024-bit string.  A block (e.g., B) may be
        represented as a sequence of 32-bit or 64-bit words.

3.  Operations on Words

   The following logical operators will be applied to words in all four
   hash operations specified herein.  SHA-224 and SHA-256 operate on
   32-bit words, while SHA-384 and SHA-512 operate on 64-bit words.

   In the operations below, x<<n is obtained as follows: discard the
   left-most n bits of x and then pad the result with n zeroed bits on
   the right (the result will still be the same number of bits).

    a.  Bitwise logical word operations

        X AND Y  =  bitwise logical "and" of  X and Y.

        X OR Y   =  bitwise logical "inclusive-or" of X and Y.

        X XOR Y  =  bitwise logical "exclusive-or" of X and Y.

        NOT X    =  bitwise logical "complement" of X.

        Example:
                 01101100101110011101001001111011
           XOR   01100101110000010110100110110111
                 --------------------------------
             =   00001001011110001011101111001100

    b.  The operation X + Y is defined as follows: words X and Y
        represent w-bit integers x and y, where 0 <= x < 2^w and
        0 <= y < 2^w.  For positive integers n and m, let

             n mod m

        be the remainder upon dividing n by m.  Compute

             z  =  (x + y) mod 2^w.

        Then 0 <= z < 2^w.  Convert z to a word, Z, and define Z = X +
        Y.

Top      ToC       Page 6 
    c.  The right shift operation SHR^n(x), where x is a w-bit word and
        n is an integer with 0 <= n < w, is defined by

             SHR^n(x) = x>>n

    d.  The rotate right (circular right shift) operation ROTR^n(x),
        where x is a w-bit word and n is an integer with 0 <= n < w, is
        defined by

             ROTR^n(x) = (x>>n) OR (x<<(w-n))

    e.  The rotate left (circular left shift) operation ROTL^n(x), where
        x is a w-bit word and n is an integer with 0 <= n < w, is
        defined by

             ROTL^n(X)  =  (x<<n) OR (x>>w-n)

        Note the following equivalence relationships, where w is fixed
        in each relationship:

             ROTL^n(x) = ROTR^(w-x)(x)

             ROTR^n(x) = ROTL^(w-n)(x)

4.  Message Padding and Parsing

   The hash functions specified herein are used to compute a message
   digest for a message or data file that is provided as input.  The
   message or data file should be considered to be a bit string.  The
   length of the message is the number of bits in the message (the empty
   message has length 0).  If the number of bits in a message is a
   multiple of 8, for compactness we can represent the message in hex.
   The purpose of message padding is to make the total length of a
   padded message a multiple of 512 for SHA-224 and SHA-256 or a
   multiple of 1024 for SHA-384 and SHA-512.

   The following specifies how this padding shall be performed.  As a
   summary, a "1" followed by a number of "0"s followed by a 64-bit or
   128-bit integer are appended to the end of the message to produce a
   padded message of length 512*n or 1024*n.  The minimum number of "0"s
   necessary to meet this criterion is used.  The appended integer is
   the length of the original message.  The padded message is then
   processed by the hash function as n 512-bit or 1024-bit blocks.

4.1.  SHA-224 and SHA-256

   Suppose a message has length L < 2^64.  Before it is input to the
   hash function, the message is padded on the right as follows:

    a.  "1" is appended.  Example: if the original message is
        "01010000", this is padded to "010100001".

    b.  K "0"s are appended where K is the smallest, non-negative
        solution to the equation

             L + 1 + K = 448 (mod 512)

    c.  Then append the 64-bit block that is L in binary representation.
        After appending this block, the length of the message will be a
        multiple of 512 bits.

        Example:  Suppose the original message is the bit string

             01100001 01100010 01100011 01100100 01100101

        After step (a), this gives

             01100001 01100010 01100011 01100100 01100101 1

        Since L = 40, the number of bits in the above is 41 and K = 407
        "0"s are appended, making the total now 448.  This gives the
        following in hex:

             61626364 65800000 00000000 00000000
             00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000
             00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000
             00000000 00000000

        The 64-bit representation of L = 40 is hex 00000000 00000028.
        Hence the final padded message is the following hex:

             61626364 65800000 00000000 00000000
             00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000
             00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000
             00000000 00000000 00000000 00000028

Top      ToC       Page 8 
4.2.  SHA-384 and SHA-512

   Suppose a message has length L < 2^128.  Before it is input to the
   hash function, the message is padded on the right as follows:

    a.  "1" is appended.  Example: if the original message is
        "01010000", this is padded to "010100001".

    b.  K "0"s are appended where K is the smallest, non-negative
        solution to the equation

             L + 1 + K = 896 (mod 1024)

    c.  Then append the 128-bit block that is L in binary
        representation.  After appending this block, the length of the
        message will be a multiple of 1024 bits.

        Example:  Suppose the original message is the bit string

             01100001 01100010 01100011 01100100 01100101

        After step (a) this gives

             01100001 01100010 01100011 01100100 01100101 1

        Since L = 40, the number of bits in the above is 41 and K = 855
        "0"s are appended, making the total now 896.  This gives the
        following in hex:

             61626364 65800000 00000000 00000000
             00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000
             00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000
             00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000
             00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000
             00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000
             00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000

        The 128-bit representation of L = 40 is hex 00000000 00000000
        00000000 00000028.  Hence the final padded message is the
        following hex:

             61626364 65800000 00000000 00000000
             00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000
             00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000
             00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000
             00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000

5.  Functions and Constants Used

   The following subsections give the six logical functions and the
   table of constants used in each of the hash functions.

5.1.  SHA-224 and SHA-256

   SHA-224 and SHA-256 use six logical functions, where each function
   operates on 32-bit words, which are represented as x, y, and z.  The
   result of each function is a new 32-bit word.

        CH( x, y, z) = (x AND y) XOR ( (NOT x) AND z)

        MAJ( x, y, z) = (x AND y) XOR (x AND z) XOR (y AND z)

        BSIG0(x) = ROTR^2(x) XOR ROTR^13(x) XOR ROTR^22(x)

        BSIG1(x) = ROTR^6(x) XOR ROTR^11(x) XOR ROTR^25(x)

        SSIG0(x) = ROTR^7(x) XOR ROTR^18(x) XOR SHR^3(x)

        SSIG1(x) = ROTR^17(x) XOR ROTR^19(x) XOR SHR^10(x)

   SHA-224 and SHA-256 use the same sequence of sixty-four constant
   32-bit words, K0, K1, ..., K63.  These words represent the first
   thirty-two bits of the fractional parts of the cube roots of the
   first sixty-four prime numbers.  In hex, these constant words are as
   follows (from left to right):

5.2.  SHA-384 and SHA-512

   SHA-384 and SHA-512 each use six logical functions, where each
   function operates on 64-bit words, which are represented as x, y, and
   z.  The result of each function is a new 64-bit word.

        CH( x, y, z) = (x AND y) XOR ( (NOT x) AND z)

   SHA-384 and SHA-512 use the same sequence of eighty constant 64-bit
   words, K0, K1, ... K79.  These words represent the first sixty-four
   bits of the fractional parts of the cube roots of the first eighty
   prime numbers.  In hex, these constant words are as follows (from
   left to right):

6.  Computing the Message Digest

   The output of each of the secure hash functions, after being applied
   to a message of N blocks, is the hash quantity H(N).  For SHA-224 and
   SHA-256, H(i) can be considered to be eight 32-bit words, H(i)0,
   H(i)1, ... H(i)7.  For SHA-384 and SHA-512, it can be considered to
   be eight 64-bit words, H(i)0, H(i)1, ..., H(i)7.

   As described below, the hash words are initialized, modified as each
   message block is processed, and finally concatenated after processing
   the last block to yield the output.  For SHA-256 and SHA-512, all of
   the H(N) variables are concatenated while the SHA-224 and SHA-384
   hashes are produced by omitting some from the final concatenation.

6.1.  SHA-224 and SHA-256 Initialization

   For SHA-224, the initial hash value, H(0), consists of the following
   32-bit words in hex:

        H(0)0 = c1059ed8
        H(0)1 = 367cd507
        H(0)2 = 3070dd17
        H(0)3 = f70e5939
        H(0)4 = ffc00b31
        H(0)5 = 68581511
        H(0)6 = 64f98fa7
        H(0)7 = befa4fa4

   For SHA-256, the initial hash value, H(0), consists of the following
   eight 32-bit words, in hex.  These words were obtained by taking the
   first thirty-two bits of the fractional parts of the square roots of
   the first eight prime numbers.

        H(0)0 = 6a09e667
        H(0)1 = bb67ae85
        H(0)2 = 3c6ef372
        H(0)3 = a54ff53a
        H(0)4 = 510e527f
        H(0)5 = 9b05688c
        H(0)6 = 1f83d9ab
        H(0)7 = 5be0cd19

6.2.  SHA-224 and SHA-256 Processing

   SHA-224 and SHA-256 perform identical processing on messages blocks
   and differ only in how H(0) is initialized and how they produce their
   final output.  They may be used to hash a message, M, having a length
   of L bits, where 0 <= L < 2^64.  The algorithm uses (1) a message

Top      ToC       Page 12 
   schedule of sixty-four 32-bit words, (2) eight working variables of
   32 bits each, and (3) a hash value of eight 32-bit words.

   The words of the message schedule are labeled W0, W1, ..., W63.  The
   eight working variables are labeled a, b, c, d, e, f, g, and h.  The
   words of the hash value are labeled H(i)0, H(i)1, ..., H(i)7, which
   will hold the initial hash value, H(0), replaced by each successive
   intermediate hash value (after each message block is processed),
   H(i), and ending with the final hash value, H(N), after all N blocks
   are processed.  They also use two temporary words, T1 and T2.

   The input message is padded as described in Section 4.1 above then
   parsed into 512-bit blocks, which are considered to be composed of 16
   32-bit words M(i)0, M(i)1, ..., M(i)15.  The following computations
   are then performed for each of the N message blocks.  All addition is
   performed modulo 2^32.

   For i = 1 to N

      1. Prepare the message schedule W:
         For t = 0 to 15
            Wt = M(i)t
         For t = 16 to 63
            Wt = SSIG1(W(t-2)) + W(t-7) + SSIG0(t-15) + W(t-16)

      2. Initialize the working variables:
         a = H(i-1)0
         b = H(i-1)1
         c = H(i-1)2
         d = H(i-1)3
         e = H(i-1)4
         f = H(i-1)5
         g = H(i-1)6
         h = H(i-1)7

      3. Perform the main hash computation:
         For t = 0 to 63
            T1 = h + BSIG1(e) + CH(e,f,g) + Kt + Wt
            T2 = BSIG0(a) + MAJ(a,b,c)
            h = g
            g = f
            f = e
            e = d + T1
            d = c
            c = b
            b = a
            a = T1 + T2

Top      ToC       Page 13 
      4. Compute the intermediate hash value H(i):
         H(i)0 = a + H(i-1)0
         H(i)1 = b + H(i-1)1
         H(i)2 = c + H(i-1)2
         H(i)3 = d + H(i-1)3
         H(i)4 = e + H(i-1)4
         H(i)5 = f + H(i-1)5
         H(i)6 = g + H(i-1)6
         H(i)7 = h + H(i-1)7

   After the above computations have been sequentially performed for all
   of the blocks in the message, the final output is calculated.  For
   SHA-256, this is the concatenation of all of H(N)0, H(N)1, through
   H(N)7.  For SHA-224, this is the concatenation of H(N)0, H(N)1,
   through H(N)6.

6.3.  SHA-384 and SHA-512 Initialization

   For SHA-384, the initial hash value, H(0), consists of the following
   eight 64-bit words, in hex.  These words were obtained by taking the
   first sixty-four bits of the fractional parts of the square roots of
   the ninth through sixteenth prime numbers.

        H(0)0 = cbbb9d5dc1059ed8
        H(0)1 = 629a292a367cd507
        H(0)2 = 9159015a3070dd17
        H(0)3 = 152fecd8f70e5939
        H(0)4 = 67332667ffc00b31
        H(0)5 = 8eb44a8768581511
        H(0)6 = db0c2e0d64f98fa7
        H(0)7 = 47b5481dbefa4fa4

   For SHA-512, the initial hash value, H(0), consists of the following
   eight 64-bit words, in hex.  These words were obtained by taking the
   first sixty-four bits of the fractional parts of the square roots of
   the first eight prime numbers.

        H(0)0 = 6a09e667f3bcc908
        H(0)1 = bb67ae8584caa73b
        H(0)2 = 3c6ef372fe94f82b
        H(0)3 = a54ff53a5f1d36f1
        H(0)4 = 510e527fade682d1
        H(0)5 = 9b05688c2b3e6c1f
        H(0)6 = 1f83d9abfb41bd6b
        H(0)7 = 5be0cd19137e2179

6.4.  SHA-384 and SHA-512 Processing

   SHA-384 and SHA-512 perform identical processing on message blocks
   and differ only in how H(0) is initialized and how they produce their
   final output.  They may be used to hash a message, M, having a length
   of L bits, where 0 <= L < 2^128.  The algorithm uses (1) a message
   schedule of eighty 64-bit words, (2) eight working variables of 64
   bits each, and (3) a hash value of eight 64-bit words.

   The words of the message schedule are labeled W0, W1, ..., W79.  The
   eight working variables are labeled a, b, c, d, e, f, g, and h.  The
   words of the hash value are labeled H(i)0, H(i)1, ..., H(i)7, which
   will hold the initial hash value, H(0), replaced by each successive
   intermediate hash value (after each message block is processed),
   H(i), and ending with the final hash value, H(N) after all N blocks
   are processed.

   The input message is padded as described in Section 4.2 above, then
   parsed into 1024-bit blocks, which are considered to be composed of
   16 64-bit words M(i)0, M(i)1, ..., M(i)15.  The following
   computations are then performed for each of the N message blocks.
   All addition is performed modulo 2^64.

   For i = 1 to N

      1. Prepare the message schedule W:
         For t = 0 to 15
            Wt = M(i)t
         For t = 16 to 79
            Wt = SSIG1(W(t-2)) + W(t-7) + SSIG0(t-15) + W(t-16)

      2. Initialize the working variables:
         a = H(i-1)0
         b = H(i-1)1
         c = H(i-1)2
         d = H(i-1)3
         e = H(i-1)4
         f = H(i-1)5
         g = H(i-1)6
         h = H(i-1)7

      3. Perform the main hash computation:
         For t = 0 to 79
            T1 = h + BSIG1(e) + CH(e,f,g) + Kt + Wt
            T2 = BSIG0(a) + MAJ(a,b,c)
            h = g
            g = f
            f = e

Top      ToC       Page 15 
            e = d + T1
            d = c
            c = b
            b = a
            a = T1 + T2

      4. Compute the intermediate hash value H(i):
         H(i)0 = a + H(i-1)0
         H(i)1 = b + H(i-1)1
         H(i)2 = c + H(i-1)2
         H(i)3 = d + H(i-1)3
         H(i)4 = e + H(i-1)4
         H(i)5 = f + H(i-1)5
         H(i)6 = g + H(i-1)6
         H(i)7 = h + H(i-1)7

   After the above computations have been sequentially performed for all
   of the blocks in the message, the final output is calculated.  For
   SHA-512, this is the concatenation of all of H(N)0, H(N)1, through
   H(N)7.  For SHA-384, this is the concatenation of H(N)0, H(N)1,
   through H(N)5.
