EVP_mdc2 — MDC-2 For EVP


 #include <openssl/evp.h>

 const EVP_MD *EVP_mdc2(void);


MDC-2 (Modification Detection Code 2 or Meyer-Schilling) is a cryptographic hash function based on a block cipher.


The MDC-2DES algorithm of using MDC-2 with the DES block cipher. It produces a 128-bit output from a given input.

Return Values

These functions return a EVP_MD structure that contains the implementation of the symmetric cipher. See EVP_MD_meth_new(3) for details of the EVP_MD structure.

Conforming to

ISO/IEC 10118-2:2000 Hash-Function 2, with DES as the underlying block cipher.
