class DigestEngine

Library: Foundation
Package: Crypt
Header: Poco/DigestEngine.h

Description

This class is an abstract base class for all classes implementing a message digest algorithm, like MD5Engine and SHA1Engine. Call update() repeatedly with data to compute the digest from. When done, call digest() to obtain the message digest.

Inheritance

Known Derived Classes: Poco::Crypto::DigestEngine, Poco::Crypto::RSADigestEngine, HMACEngine, MD4Engine, MD5Engine, SHA1Engine

Destructor

virtual ~DigestEngine();

Member Functions

digest virtual

virtual const Digest & digest() = 0;

Finishes the computation of the digest and returns the message digest. Resets the engine and can thus only be called once for every digest. The returned reference is valid until the next time digest() is called, or the engine object is destroyed.

digestFromHex static

static Digest digestFromHex(
    const std::string & digest
);

Converts a string created by digestToHex back to its Digest presentation

digestLength virtual

virtual std::size_t digestLength() const = 0;

Returns the length of the digest in bytes.

digestToHex static

static std::string digestToHex(
    const Digest & bytes
);

Converts a message digest into a string of hexadecimal numbers.

reset virtual

virtual void reset() = 0;

Resets the engine so that a new digest can be computed.

update inline

void update(
    const void * data,
    std::size_t length
);

update

void update(
    char data
);

update

void update(
    const std::string & data
);

Updates the digest with the given data.

updateImpl protected virtual

virtual void updateImpl(
    const void * data,
    std::size_t length
) = 0;

Updates the digest with the given data. Must be implemented by subclasses.
