"""Hashing algorithms
Hash functions take arbitrary strings as input, and produce an output
of fixed size that is dependent on the input; it should never be
possible to derive the input data given only the hash function's
output. Hash functions can be used simply as a checksum, or, in
association with a public-key algorithm, can be used to implement
digital signatures.
The hashing modules here all support the interface described in PEP
247, "API for Cryptographic Hash Functions".
Submodules:
Crypto.Hash.HMAC RFC 2104: Keyed-Hashing for Message Authentication
Crypto.Hash.MD2
Crypto.Hash.MD4
Crypto.Hash.MD5
Crypto.Hash.RIPEMD
Crypto.Hash.SHA
