nacl.hash

nacl.hash.sha256(message, encoder)

Hashes message with SHA256.

Parameters:
  • message (bytes) – The message to hash.
  • encoder – A class that is able to encode the hashed message.
Return bytes:

The hashed message.

nacl.hash.sha512(message, encoder)

Hashes message with SHA512.

Parameters:
  • message (bytes) – The message to hash.
  • encoder – A class that is able to encode the hashed message.
Return bytes:

The hashed message.

nacl.hash.blake2b(data, digest_size=BLAKE2B_BYTES, key=b'', salt=b'', person=b'', encoder=nacl.encoding.HexEncoder)

One-shot blake2b digest

Parameters:
  • data (bytes) – the digest input byte sequence
  • digest_size (int) – the requested digest size; must be at most BLAKE2B_BYTES_MAX; the default digest size is BLAKE2B_BYTES
  • key (bytes) – the key to be set for keyed MAC/PRF usage; if set, the key must be at most BLAKE2B_KEYBYTES_MAX long
  • salt (bytes) – an initialization salt at most BLAKE2B_SALTBYTES long; it will be zero-padded if needed
  • person (bytes) – a personalization string at most BLAKE2B_PERSONALBYTES long; it will be zero-padded if needed
  • encoder (class) – the encoder to use on returned digest
Returns:

encoded bytes data

Return type:

the return type of the choosen encoder

nacl.hash.siphash24(message, key=b'', encoder=nacl.encoding.HexEncoder)

Computes a keyed MAC of message using siphash-2-4

Parameters:
  • message (bytes) – The message to hash.
  • key (bytes(SIPHASH_KEYBYTES)) – the message authentication key to be used It must be a SIPHASH_KEYBYTES long bytes sequence
  • encoder – A class that is able to encode the hashed message.
Returns:

The hashed message.

Return type:

bytes(SIPHASH_BYTES) long bytes sequence

nacl.hash.siphashx24(message, key=b'', encoder=nacl.encoding.HexEncoder)

  • encoder – A class that is able to encode the hashed message.
Returns:

The hashed message.

Return type:

bytes(SIPHASHX_BYTES) long bytes sequence
