Abstract

   This document is intended to be a source of information about the
   Russian Federal standard hash function (GOST R 34.11-2012), which is
   one of the Russian cryptographic standard algorithms (called GOST
   algorithms).  This document updates RFC 5831.

1.  Scope

   The Russian Federal standard hash function (GOST R 34.11-2012)
   establishes the hash-function algorithm and the hash-function
   calculation procedure for any sequence of binary symbols used in
   cryptographic methods of information processing and information
   security, including techniques for providing data integrity and
   authenticity and for digital signatures during information transfer,
   information processing, and information storage in computer-aided
   systems.

   The hash function defined in the standard provides for the operation
   of digital signature systems using the asymmetric cryptographic
   algorithm in compliance with GOST R 34.10-2012 [GOST3410-2012].
