ByteSource
All Known Implementing Classes:
AbstractHash, Md2Hash, Md5Hash, Sha1Hash, Sha256Hash, Sha384Hash, Sha512Hash, SimpleHash

public interface Hash
extends ByteSource

A Cryptographic Hash represents a one-way conversion algorithm that transforms an input source to an underlying byte array. Hex and Base64-encoding output of the hashed bytes are automatically supported by the inherited toHex() and toBase64() methods.

The bytes returned by the parent interface's getBytes() are the hashed value of the original input source, also known as the 'checksum' or 'digest'.

Since:
0.9

Method Detail

getAlgorithmName

String getAlgorithmName()
Returns the name of the algorithm used to hash the input source, for example, SHA-256, MD5, etc.

The name is expected to be a MessageDigest algorithm name.

Returns:
the the name of the algorithm used to hash the input source, for example, SHA-256, MD5, etc.
Since:
1.1

getSalt

ByteSource getSalt()
Returns a salt used to compute the hash or null if no salt was used.

Returns:
a salt used to compute the hash or null if no salt was used.
Since:
1.2

getIterations

int getIterations()
Returns the number of hash iterations used to compute the hash.

Returns:
the number of hash iterations used to compute the hash.
Since:
1.2
