HashInfo Plugin



1. INTRODUCTION

HashInfo plugin for NSIS provides several cryptographic functions that allow you to generate hash values for a given string or file. Installer creator (NSIS based) can use one of the many hash algorithms.

Current version of plugin allows you to get data for several categories. Below, you can find all functions supported by plugin with description and example usage. More information about HashInfo plugin can be found in the file "HashInfoDemo.nsi", which is attached to the archive file of the HashInfo plugin.


The plugin is based on the HashLib4Pascal library, which provides an easy-to-use interface for calculating hashes and checksums.



2. GENERAL USAGE

Function .onInit

  HashInfo::FunctionName "PARAM1" "PARAM2"
      ; Function can take parameters
      ; Parameters usage depends on given function (always required)

  Pop $0 
         ; The function returns the retrieved value in the variable $0
         ; The function returns "error" if there is an error

2.1. CHECKSUM

A checksum is a small-sized block of data derived from another block of digital data for the purpose of detecting errors that may have been introduced during its transmission or storage. By themselves, checksums are often used to verify data integrity but are not relied upon to verify data authenticity.

Available Hash Algorithms: Adler-32

  1a. Compute the checksum value for a given STRING

  ; Usage
  ; HashInfo::FunctionName "PARAM1" "PARAM2"
       ; PARAM1 -> Hash Algorithm (Obligatory)
       ; PARAM2 -> String (Obligatory)
       ; Notes:
       ; - Function returns "error" if something goes wrong

  StrCpy $R0 "Adler-32"     ; PARAM1
  StrCpy $R1 "Hello World" ; PARAM2
  HashInfo::GetStrCRCHash "$R0" "$R1"
  Pop $0 
  DetailPrint "   Hash Alghoritm: $R0"
  DetailPrint "   Input String: $R1"
  DetailPrint "   Output Hash: $0"
  1b. Compute the checksum value for a given FILE

  ; Usage
  ; HashInfo::FunctionName "PARAM1" "PARAM2"
       ; PARAM1 -> Hash Algorithm (Obligatory)
       ; PARAM2 -> Full Path to File (Obligatory)
       ; Notes:
       ; - Function returns "error" if something goes wrong

  StrCpy $R0 "Adler-32"    ; PARAM1
  StrCpy $R1 "$EXEPATH" ; PARAM2
  HashInfo::GetFileCRCHash "$R0" "$R1"
  Pop $0
  DetailPrint "   Hash Alghoritm: $R0"
  DetailPrint "   Input File: $R1"
  DetailPrint "   Output Hash: $0"

2.2. CRC (CYCLIC REDUNDANCY CHECK)

A cyclic redundancy check (CRC)is an error-detecting code commonly used in digital networks and storage devices to detect accidental changes to digital data. Blocks of data entering these systems get a short check value attached, based on the remainder of a polynomial division of their contents. On retrieval, the calculation is repeated and, in the event the check values do not match, corrective action can be taken against data corruption. CRCs can be used for error correction. CRCs are so called because the check (data verification) value is a redundancy (it expands the message without adding information) and the algorithm is based on cyclic codes.

2.4. CRYPTOGRAPHIC HASH FUNCTIONS

Cryptographic hash functions are a special class among hash functions that aim to provide certain security guarantees. For example, when obtaining a device fingerprinting, you should use a cryptographic hash function to have more guarantees of its output uniqueness. The ideal cryptographic hash function has six main properties:

  • Deterministic: the same message always results in the same hash
  • Quick: it is quick to compute the hash value for any given message
  • One-way function: it is infeasible to generate a message from its hash value except by trying all possible messages
  • Avalanche effect: a small change to a message should change the hash value so extensively that the new hash value appears uncorrelated with the old hash value
  • Collision resistant: it is infeasible to find two different messages with the same hash value
  • Pre-image attack resistant: a pre-image attack on cryptographic hash functions tries to find a message that has a specific hash value. A cryptographic hash function should resist attacks on its pre-image.

MD2, MD4, MD5, SHA0, SHA1, SHA2-224, SHA2-256, SHA2-384, SHA2-512, SHA2-512/224, SHA2-512/256, SHA3-224, SHA3-256, SHA3-384, SHA3-512, Blake2B-160, Blake2B-256, Blake2B-384, Blake2B-512, Blake2BP, Blake2S-128, Blake2S-160, Blake2S-224, Blake2S-256, Blake2SP, Blake3, GOST 34.11-94, GOST R 34.11-2012-256, GOST R 34.11-2012-512, Grindahl-256, Grindahl-512, Has160, RIPEMD, RIPEMD-128, RIPEMD-160, RIPEMD-256, RIPEMD-320, Snefru-128, Snefru-256, Panama, RadioGatun32, RadioGatun64, Keccak-224, Keccak-256, Keccak-288, Keccak-384, Keccak-512, WhirlPool
