Overview

digest.js is a javascript library implementing cryptographic digest and HMAC algorithms.
digest.js is designed for modern web browsers and requires the W3C Typed Arrays support. digest.js has been successfully tested with these web browsers:
  • Chrome 11
  • Firefox 4
  • Safari 5.1
  • IE 10

Supported algorithms:

  • digest
+ MD5 + SHA-1 + SHA-256
  • Message Authentication Code (MAC)
+ HMAC/MD5 + HMAC/SHA-1 + HMAC/SHA-256
  • Password-Based Key Derivation Function (PBKDF)
+ PBKDF1/SHA1 + PBKDF1/MD5 + PBKDF2/HMAC/SHA1 + PBKDF2/HMAC/SHA-256

Installation

Node

npm install digest-js
and then
Digest = require('digest-js');

Browser

<script type="text/javascript" src="path/to/digest.min.js"></script>

Compilation

digest.js is using npm and grunt
  1. Install Grunt
```shell
npm install -g grunt-cli
```
  1. Download dependencies
```shell
npm install
```
  1. Build the library
```shell
grunt
```

API Usage

Digest

  1. Initialize a digest object
```javascript
var dg = new Digest.SHA1();
```
  1. Update some data
```javascript
var data = new ArrayBuffer(3);
var buf = new Uint8Array(data);
buf[0] = 0x61; /* a */
buf[1] = 0x62; /* b */
buf[2] = 0x63; /* c */
dg.update(data);
```
  1. Finalize
```javascript
var result = dg.finalize();
```
It is also possible to digest some data at once:
var dg = new Digest.SHA1();
var result = dg.digest("abc");

MAC

  1. Initialize a MAC object
```javascript
var mac = new Digest.HMAC_SHA1();
```
  1. Set the key
```javascript
mac.setKey("KeyInPlainText");
```
  1. Update some data
```javascript
var data = new ArrayBuffer(50);
var buf = new Uint8Array(data);
for (var i = 0; i < 50; i++) {
    buf[i] = 0xdd;
}
mac.update(data);
```
  1. Finalize
```javascript
var result = mac.finalize();
```

PBKDF

  1. Initialize a PBKDF object with the iteration count
```javascript
var pbkdf = new Digest.PBKDF_HMAC_SHA1(2048);
```
  1. Derive key with the password, salt and desired key length (in bytes)
```javascript
var key = pbkdf.deriveKey("password", "salt", 24);
```

Misc

After the finalize, digest or mac methods have been called, the digest or mac object is automatically reset and can be reused.
The update, digest and mac methods accept these data types:
  • ArrayBuffer
  • String (US-ASCII encoding)
  • byte (i.e. a number in the range 0-255)

The MAC setKey method accepts these data types:
  • ArrayBuffer
  • String (US-ASCII encoding)

The PBKDF deriveKey method accepts these data types for password and salt:
  • ArrayBuffer
  • String (US-ASCII encoding)
