digest(1)                        User Commands                       digest(1)



NAME
       digest - calculate a message digest

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/bin/digest -l | [-v] -a algorithm [file...]

DESCRIPTION
       The  digest  utility calculates the message digest of the given file(s)
       or stdin using the algorithm specified. If more than one file is given,
       each line of output is the digest of a single file.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -a algorithm    Specifies  the  name of the algorithm to use during the
                       encryption or  decryption  process.  See  USAGE,  Algo-
                       rithms, for details.



       -l              Displays  list  of  algorithms available on the system.
                       This list can change depending on the configuration  of
                       the cryptographic framework.



       -v              Verbose  output.  Includes the algorithm name and file-
                       name in the output.



USAGE
   Algorithms
       These algorithms are provided  by  the  Cryptographic  Framework.  Each
       algorithm  supported  by the command is an alias of the PKCS #11 mecha-
       nism for easier access. For example, sha1 is an alias to CKM_SHA_1.

       These aliases are used with the -a option and are case-sensitive.

EXAMPLES
       Example 1: Simulating output of the common md5sum program

       example$ digest -v -a md5 /usr/bin/vi
       md5 (/usr/bin/vi) = e4e3588c5212903847c66d36b1a828a5

       Example 2: Digesting a file

       To generate the sha1 digest of the file /etc/motd:

       example$ digest -a sha1 /etc/motd
       9498a4f5303d056ad3ecae826b59f41448d63790

       Example 3: Generating a directory manifest with sha1

       example$ digest -v -a sha1 /usr/lib/inet/*
