Hash Functions for Non-Streaming Messages

This section describes functions that calculate a digest of an entire (non-streaming) input message by applying a selected hash algorithm, as well as a possibility to use a different implementation of a hash algorithm.
The crypto community does not consider SHA-1 or MD5 algorithms secure anymore.
Recommendation: use a more secure hash algorithm (for example, any algorithm from the SHA-2 family) instead of SHA-1 or MD5.
