jsSHA is a JavaScript implementation of the complete Secure Hash Standard family (SHA-1, SHA-224, SHA3-224, SHA-256, SHA3-256, SHA-384, SHA3-384, SHA-512, SHA3-512, SHAKE128, and SHAKE256) as well as HMAC

jsSHA

A JavaScript implementation of the complete Secure Hash Standard family (SHA-1, SHA-224, SHA3-224, SHA-256, SHA3-256, SHA-384, SHA3-384, SHA-512, SHA3-512, SHAKE128, and SHAKE256) as well as HMAC by Brian Turek.

jsSHA is a javaScript implementation of the complete Secure Hash Algorithm family as defined by FIPS PUB 180-4 and FIPS PUB 202. It also includes the HMAC algorithm with SHA support as defined by FIPS PUB 198-1.

Include the desired JavaScript file (sha.js, sha1.js, sha256.js, sha512.js, or sha3.js) in your header (sha.js used below):

<script type="text/javascript" src="/path/to/sha.js"></script>

Instantiate a new jsSHA object with the desired hash type, input type, and options as parameters. The hash type can be one of SHA-1, SHA-224, SHA3-224, SHA-256, SHA3-256, SHA-384, SHA3-384, SHA-512, SHA3-512, SHAKE128, or SHAKE256. The input type can be one of HEX, TEXT, B64, BYTES, or ARRAYBUFFER. You can then stream in input using the update object function. Finally, simply call getHash with the output type as a parameter (B64, HEX, BYTES, or ARRAYBUFFER). Example to calculate the SHA-512 of "This is a test":

var shaObj = new jsSHA("SHA-512", "TEXT");
shaObj.update("This is a test");
var hash = shaObj.getHash("HEX");

The constructor takes a hashmap as a optional third argument with possible properties of numRounds and encoding. numRounds controls the number of hashing iterations/rounds performed and defaults to a value of 1 if not specified. encoding specifies the encoding used to encode TEXT-type inputs. Valid options are "UTF8", "UTF16BE", and "UTF16LE", it defaults to "UTF8".

getHash also takes a hashmap as an optional second argument. By default the hashmap is {"outputUpper" : false, "b64Pad" : "="}. These options are intelligently interpreted based upon the chosen output format. Important: SHAKE128 and SHAKE256 require shakeLen to be included in the hashmap where shakeLen is the desired output length of the SHAKE algorithm in a multiple of 8 bits.

Instantiate a new jsSHA object the same way as for hashing. Then set the HMAC key to be used by calling setHMACKey with the key and its input type (this MUST be done before calling update). You can stream in the input using the update object function just like hashing. Finally, get the HMAC by calling the getHMAC function with the output type as its argument. Example to calculate the SHA-512 HMAC of the string "This is a test" with the key "abc":

var shaObj = new jsSHA(hashType, "TEXT");
shaObj.setHMACKey("abc", "TEXT");
shaObj.update("This is a test");
var hmac = shaObj.getHMAC("HEX");

setHMACKey takes the same input types as the constructor and getHMAC takes the same inputs as getHash as described above.

Note: You cannot calculate both the hash and HMAC using the same object.

jsSHA is available through NPM and be installed by simply doing

npm install jssha

To use the module, first require it using:

jsSHA = require("jssha");

The rest of the instructions are identical to the Browser section above.

This library makes use of the Google Closure Compiler to both boost performance and reduce filesizes. To compile sha_dev.js into a customized output file, use a command like the following:

java -jar compiler.jar --define="SUPPORTED_ALGS=<FLAG>" \
	--externs /path/to/build/externs.js --warning_level VERBOSE \
	--compilation_level ADVANCED_OPTIMIZATIONS \
	--js /path/to/sha_dev.js --js_output_file /path/to/sha.js

where FLAG is a bitwise OR of the following values:

  • 8 for SHA3
  • 4 for SHA-384/SHA-512
  • 2 for SHA-224/256
  • 1 for SHA-1
