Fast, SIMD-accelerated CRC32 (IEEE) checksum computation
For simple use-cases, you can call the
hash convenience function to
directly compute the CRC32 checksum for a given byte slice:
let checksum = hash;
For use-cases that require more flexibility or performance, for example when
processing large amounts of data, you can create and manipulate a
use Hasher; let mut hasher = new; hasher.update; let checksum = hasher.finalize;
This crate contains multiple CRC32 implementations:
- A fast baseline implementation which processes up to 16 bytes per iteration
- An optimized implementation for modern
- An optimized implementation for
Hasher::new constructor at runtime will perform a feature detection to select the most
optimal implementation for the current CPU feature set.

Due to the use of SIMD intrinsics for the optimized implementations, this crate contains some amount of
In order to ensure memory safety, the relevant code has been fuzz tested using afl.rs with millions of iterations in both
release build settings. You can inspect the test setup in the
fuzz sub-directory, which also has instructions on how to run the tests yourself.
On top of that, every commit is tested using an address sanitizer in CI to catch any out of bounds memory accesses.
Even though neither fuzzing nor sanitization has revealed any safety bugs yet, please don't hesitate to file an issue if you run into any crashes or other unexpected behaviour.
Available feature flags
std (default: enabled)
This library supports being built without the Rust
std library, which is useful for low-level use-cases such as embedded where no operating system is available. To build the crate in a
no_std context, disable the default
Note: Because runtime CPU feature detection requires OS support, the specialized SIMD implementations will be unavailable when the
std feature is disabled.
nightly (default: disabled)
This feature flag enables unstable features that are only available on the
nightly channel. Keep in mind that when enabling this feature flag, you
might experience breaking changes when updating compiler versions.
Currently, enabling this feature flag will make the optimized
aarch64 implementation available.
