MD5GetTag

Computes the current MD5 digest value of the processed part of the message (deprecated).

Syntax

IppStatus ippsMD5GetTag(Ipp8u*
pTag
, Ipp32u
tagLen
, const IppsMD5State*
pCtx
);
Include Files
ippcp.h
Parameters
pTag
Pointer to the authentication tag.
tagLen
Length of the tag (in bytes).
pCtx
Pointer to the
IppsMD5State
context.
Description
This algorithm is considered weak due to known attacks on it. The functionality remains in the library, but the implementation will no longer be optimized and no security patches will be applied.
The function computes the message digest based on the current context as specified in [FIPS PUB 180-2] and [RFC 1321]. A call to this function retains the possibility to update the digest.
Return Values
ippStsNoErr
Indicates no error. Any other value indicates an error or warning.
ippStsNullPtrErr
Indicates an error condition if any of the specified pointers is
NULL
.
ippStsLengthErr
Indicates an error condition if
tagLen
< 1 or
tagLen
exceeds the maximal length of a particular digest.
ippStsContextMatchErr
Indicates an error condition if the context parameter does not match the operation.

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors.
