"shasum: SHA384 and SHA512 commands for FreeBSD" - Metin KAYA - (2008-04-18 21:07:10)   [8757]

In Linux, there are commands such as sha1sum, sha224sum, sha256sum, sha384sum, and sha512sum. On the other hand, FreeBSD only has sha1 and sha256 without "p5-Digest-SHA" package. After installing p5-Digest-SHA package, "shasum" can do what "sha384sum" and "sha512sum" do. To install the package, please issue that command:

# cd /usr/ports/security/p5-Digest-SHA && make install clean

Then, "shasum" can be used as shown below:

# shasum -a 384 filename


# shasum -a 512 filename
