How many times have you seen download files hash check files on a website ?
How many times have you seen a sha1 or rmd160 hash ?
and you didn't have a native unix tool for comparing the values?
Did you know that openssl has the means for displaying common and not so common hash types?
Okay here's me check a md5, and sha1 hash of a tarball file;
and one of other favorite rmd160 of the same tarball ;
So if you don't have a md5 , sha1 or rmd160 program but have openssl installed, you can use openssl for hash comparisons.
note: MACOSX 10.9.X does not have a sha1 or rmd160 hash binary available natively , but openssl is pre-installed
