crypto-hash 0.3.4

A wrapper for OS-level cryptographic hash functions


Linux/OS X Status Windows status

crypto-hash is a Rust wrapper around OS-level implementations of cryptographic hash functions.

The purpose of this crate is to provide access to hash algorithms with as few dependencies as possible. This means that when possible, the library uses the hashing functions that are provided by the given operating system's bundled cryptographic libraries.

Supported Implementations

By operating system:

Supported Algorithms

  • MD5
  • SHA1
  • SHA256
  • SHA512


Add crypto-hash to your project's Cargo.toml. For more details, consult the Cargo guide.


use crypto_hash::{Algorithm, hex_digest};

let digest = hex_digest(Algorithm::SHA256, b"crypto-hash");

For more examples, consult the documentation.

Release Notes



This crate was inspired by rust-native-tls and crypto-bench.
