 #include <openssl/evp.h>

 const EVP_MD *EVP_ripemd160(void);


RIPEMD-160 is a cryptographic hash function first published in 1996 belonging to the RIPEMD family (RACE Integrity Primitives Evaluation Message Digest).


The RIPEMD-160 algorithm which produces a 160-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
