Function Documentation

int mbedtls_md ( const mbedtls_md_info_t md_info,
const unsigned char *  input,
size_t  ilen,
unsigned char *  output 
)

This function calculates the message-digest of a buffer, with respect to a configurable message-digest algorithm in a single call.

The result is calculated as Output = message_digest(input buffer).

Parameters
md_infoThe information structure of the message-digest algorithm to use.
inputThe buffer holding the data.
ilenThe length of the input data.
outputThe generic message-digest checksum result.
Returns
0 on success.
MBEDTLS_ERR_MD_BAD_INPUT_DATA on parameter-verification failure.
int mbedtls_md_clone ( mbedtls_md_context_t dst,
const mbedtls_md_context_t src 
)

This function clones the state of an message-digest context.

Note
You must call mbedtls_md_setup() on dst before calling this function.
The two contexts must have the same type, for example, both are SHA-256.
Warning
This function clones the message-digest state, not the HMAC state.
Parameters
dstThe destination context.
srcThe context to be cloned.
Returns
0 on success.
MBEDTLS_ERR_MD_BAD_INPUT_DATA on parameter-verification failure.
int mbedtls_md_file ( const mbedtls_md_info_t md_info,
const char *  path,
unsigned char *  output 
)

This function calculates the message-digest checksum result of the contents of the provided file.

The result is calculated as Output = message_digest(file contents).

Parameters
md_infoThe information structure of the message-digest algorithm to use.
pathThe input file name.
outputThe generic message-digest checksum result.
Returns
0 on success.
MBEDTLS_ERR_MD_FILE_IO_ERROR on an I/O error accessing the file pointed by path.
MBEDTLS_ERR_MD_BAD_INPUT_DATA if md_info was NULL.
int mbedtls_md_finish ( mbedtls_md_context_t ctx,
unsigned char *  output 
)

This function finishes the digest operation, and writes the result to the output buffer.

Call this function after a call to mbedtls_md_starts(), followed by any number of calls to mbedtls_md_update(). Afterwards, you may either clear the context with mbedtls_md_free(), or call mbedtls_md_starts() to reuse the context for another digest operation with the same algorithm.

Parameters
ctxThe generic message-digest context.
outputThe buffer for the generic message-digest checksum result.
Returns
0 on success.
MBEDTLS_ERR_MD_BAD_INPUT_DATA on parameter-verification failure.
void mbedtls_md_free ( mbedtls_md_context_t ctx)

This function clears the internal structure of ctx and frees any embedded internal structure, but does not free ctx itself.

If you have called mbedtls_md_setup() on ctx, you must call mbedtls_md_free() when you are no longer using the context. Calling this function if you have previously called mbedtls_md_init() and nothing else is optional. You must not call this function if you have not called mbedtls_md_init().

const char* mbedtls_md_get_name ( const mbedtls_md_info_t md_info)

This function extracts the message-digest name from the message-digest information structure.

Parameters
md_infoThe information structure of the message-digest algorithm to use.
Returns
The name of the message digest.
unsigned char mbedtls_md_get_size ( const mbedtls_md_info_t md_info)

This function extracts the message-digest size from the message-digest information structure.

Parameters
md_infoThe information structure of the message-digest algorithm to use.
Returns
The size of the message-digest output in Bytes.
mbedtls_md_type_t mbedtls_md_get_type ( const mbedtls_md_info_t md_info)

This function extracts the message-digest type from the message-digest information structure.

Parameters
md_infoThe information structure of the message-digest algorithm to use.
Returns
The type of the message digest.
int mbedtls_md_hmac ( const mbedtls_md_info_t md_info,
const unsigned char *  key,
size_t  keylen,
const unsigned char *  input,
size_t  ilen,
unsigned char *  output 
)

This function calculates the full generic HMAC on the input buffer with the provided key.

The function allocates the context, performs the calculation, and frees the context.

The HMAC result is calculated as output = generic HMAC(hmac key, input buffer).

Parameters
md_infoThe information structure of the message-digest algorithm to use.
keyThe HMAC secret key.
keylenThe length of the HMAC secret key in Bytes.
inputThe buffer holding the input data.
ilenThe length of the input data.
outputThe generic HMAC result.
Returns
0 on success.
MBEDTLS_ERR_MD_BAD_INPUT_DATA on parameter-verification failure.
int mbedtls_md_hmac_finish ( mbedtls_md_context_t ctx,
unsigned char *  output 
)

This function finishes the HMAC operation, and writes the result to the output buffer.

Call this function after mbedtls_md_hmac_starts() and mbedtls_md_hmac_update() to get the HMAC value. Afterwards you may either call mbedtls_md_free() to clear the context, or call mbedtls_md_hmac_reset() to reuse the context with the same HMAC key.

Parameters
ctxThe message digest context containing an embedded HMAC context.
outputThe generic HMAC checksum result.
Returns
0 on success.
MBEDTLS_ERR_MD_BAD_INPUT_DATA on parameter-verification failure.
int mbedtls_md_hmac_reset ( mbedtls_md_context_t ctx)

This function prepares to authenticate a new message with the same key as the previous HMAC operation.

You may call this function after mbedtls_md_hmac_finish(). Afterwards call mbedtls_md_hmac_update() to pass the new input.

Parameters
ctxThe message digest context containing an embedded HMAC context.
Returns
0 on success.
MBEDTLS_ERR_MD_BAD_INPUT_DATA on parameter-verification failure.
int mbedtls_md_hmac_starts ( mbedtls_md_context_t ctx,
const unsigned char *  key,
size_t  keylen 
)

This function sets the HMAC key and prepares to authenticate a new message.

Call this function after mbedtls_md_setup(), to use the MD context for an HMAC calculation, then call mbedtls_md_hmac_update() to provide the input data, and mbedtls_md_hmac_finish() to get the HMAC value.

Parameters
ctxThe message digest context containing an embedded HMAC context.
keyThe HMAC secret key.
keylenThe length of the HMAC key in Bytes.
Returns
0 on success.
MBEDTLS_ERR_MD_BAD_INPUT_DATA on parameter-verification failure.
int mbedtls_md_hmac_update ( mbedtls_md_context_t ctx,
const unsigned char *  input,
size_t  ilen 
)

This function feeds an input buffer into an ongoing HMAC computation.

Call mbedtls_md_hmac_starts() or mbedtls_md_hmac_reset() before calling this function. You may call this function multiple times to pass the input piecewise. Afterwards, call mbedtls_md_hmac_finish().

Parameters
ctxThe message digest context containing an embedded HMAC context.
inputThe buffer holding the input data.
ilenThe length of the input data.
Returns
0 on success.
MBEDTLS_ERR_MD_BAD_INPUT_DATA on parameter-verification failure.
const mbedtls_md_info_t* mbedtls_md_info_from_string ( const char *  md_name)

This function returns the message-digest information associated with the given digest name.

Parameters
md_nameThe name of the digest to search for.

void mbedtls_md_init ( mbedtls_md_context_t ctx)

This function initializes a message-digest context without binding it to a particular message-digest algorithm.

This function should always be called first. It prepares the context for mbedtls_md_setup() for binding it to a message-digest algorithm.

int mbedtls_md_init_ctx ( mbedtls_md_context_t ctx,
const mbedtls_md_info_t md_info 
)
