Technical Summary

  The United States of America has adopted a suite of secure hash
  algorithms (SHAs), including four beyond SHA-1, as part of a Federal
  Information Processing Standard (FIPS), specifically SHA-224, SHA-256,
  SHA-384, and SHA-512.  This document makes open source code performing
  the SHA hash functions conveniently available to the Internet
  community. The sample code supports input strings of arbitrary bit
  length. Much of the text herein was adapted by the authors from FIPS
  180-2.

  This document replaces RFC 4634, fixing errata and adding code for an
  HMAC-based extract-and-expand key derivation function, HKDF (RFC
  5869). As with RFC 4634, code to perform SHA based HMACs is also
  included.
