This project extends the UtilPack.Cryptography project and provides implementation for most common cryptograhpic digest algorithms: MD5, SHA128, SHA256, and SHA512. All of those algorithms are generated by this T4 file, since they are all similar block digest algorithms. This similarness is also evident by the fact that all of those classes implement BlockDigestAlgorithm interface provided by this project. This interface can be implemented by other libraries as well.

The DigestBasedRandomGenerator provides concrete implementation for RandomGenerator interface in UtilPack.Cryptography, using the given BlockDigestAlgorithm interface to generate random data. The DigestBasedRandomGenerator is not safe to use concurrently - it has state that it modifies during the calls to methods in such way that concurrent calls would most likely cause errors or erroneous data.


See NuGet package for binary distribution.


Need to write the BlockDigestAlgorithm which uses the .NET native algorithms (if they are available) instead of completely managed current implementations of MD5/SHA*. Also need to add more digest algorithms (SHA3, BLAKE2).
