RegisterHash registers a function that returns a new instance of the given hash function. This is intended to be called from the init function in packages that implement hash functions.

func RegisterHash(h Hash, f func() hash.Hash)

Decrypter is an interface for an opaque private key that can be used for asymmetric decryption operations. An example would be an RSA key kept in a hardware module.

type Decrypter interface { // Public returns the public key corresponding to the opaque, // private key. Public() PublicKey // Decrypt decrypts msg. The opts argument should be appropriate for // the primitive used. See the documentation in each implementation for // details. Decrypt(rand io.Reader, msg []byte, opts DecrypterOpts) (plaintext []byte, err error) }

type DecrypterOpts interface{}

Hash identifies a cryptographic hash function that is implemented in another package.

type Hash uint

const ( MD4 Hash = 1 + iota // import golang.org/x/crypto/md4 MD5 // import crypto/md5 SHA1 // import crypto/sha1 SHA224 // import crypto/sha256 SHA256 // import crypto/sha256 SHA384 // import crypto/sha512 SHA512 // import crypto/sha512 MD5SHA1 // no implementation; MD5+SHA1 used for TLS RSA RIPEMD160 // import golang.org/x/crypto/ripemd160 SHA3_224 // import golang.org/x/crypto/sha3 SHA3_256 // import golang.org/x/crypto/sha3 SHA3_384 // import golang.org/x/crypto/sha3 SHA3_512 // import golang.org/x/crypto/sha3 SHA512_224 // import crypto/sha512 SHA512_256 // import crypto/sha512 )

Available reports whether the given hash function is linked into the binary.

func (h Hash) Available() bool

HashFunc simply returns the value of h so that Hash implements SignerOpts.

func (h Hash) HashFunc() Hash

New returns a new hash.Hash calculating the given hash function. New panics if the hash function is not linked into the binary.

func (h Hash) New() hash.Hash

Size returns the length, in bytes, of a digest resulting from the given hash function. It doesn't require that the hash function in question be linked into the program.

func (h Hash) Size() int

PrivateKey represents a private key using an unspecified algorithm.

type PrivateKey interface{}

PublicKey represents a public key using an unspecified algorithm.

type PublicKey interface{}

Signer is an interface for an opaque private key that can be used for signing operations. For example, an RSA key kept in a hardware module.

type Signer interface { // Public returns the public key corresponding to the opaque, // private key. Public() PublicKey // Sign signs digest with the private key, possibly using entropy from // rand. For an RSA key, the resulting signature should be either a // PKCS#1 v1.5 or PSS signature (as indicated by opts). For an (EC)DSA // key, it should be a DER-serialised, ASN.1 signature structure. // // Hash implements the SignerOpts interface and, in most cases, one can // simply pass in the hash function used as opts. Sign may also attempt // to type assert opts to other types in order to obtain algorithm // specific values. See the documentation in each package for details. // // Note that when a signature of a hash of a larger message is needed, // the caller is responsible for hashing the larger message and passing // the hash (as digest) and the hash function (as opts) to Sign. Sign(rand io.Reader, digest []byte, opts SignerOpts) (signature []byte, err error) }

SignerOpts contains options for signing with a Signer.

type SignerOpts interface { // HashFunc returns an identifier for the hash function used to produce // the message passed to Signer.Sign, or else zero to indicate that no // hashing was done. HashFunc() Hash }
