EVP_whirlpool - WHIRLPOOL For EVP

#include <openssl/evp.h>
const EVP_MD *EVP_whirlpool(void);

WHIRLPOOL is a cryptographic hash function standardized in ISO/IEC 10118-3:2004 designed by Vincent Rijmen and Paulo S. L. M. Barreto. This implementation is only available with the legacy provider.

The WHIRLPOOL algorithm that produces a message digest of 512-bits from a given input.

Developers should be aware of the negative performance implications of calling this function multiple times and should consider using EVP_MD_fetch(3) with EVP_MD-WHIRLPOOL(7) instead. See "Performance" in crypto(7) for further information.

These functions return a EVP_MD structure that contains the implementation of the message digest. See EVP_MD_meth_new(3) for details of the EVP_MD structure.
