When I run this piece of code, I expect to get a 'yes' as a result. However computer says No. When I compare the result with what online-code-generator.com/sha1-hash-with-optional-salt.php says, it should be 99c7a7ad5073610a101581f0a6c56a02f2b1e48b. Other sources tell me that this is indeed the correct answer. Am I doing something wrong here or is the implementation of Progress incorrect?
DEFINE VARIABLE cValue AS CHARACTER NO-UNDO.
DEFINE VARIABLE cResultValue AS CHARACTER NO-UNDO.
DEFINE VARIABLE cSalt AS CHARACTER NO-UNDO.
cValue = "19670901"
cSalt = "7A6579284B41376B"
cResultValue = HEX-ENCODE(SHA1-DIGEST(cValue + cSalt, cSalt)).
MESSAGE cResultValue EQ "99c7a7ad5073610a101581f0a6c56a02f2b1e48b" VIEW-AS ALERT-BOX INFO.
You're using the hash value twice, should be:
cResultValue = HEX-ENCODE(SHA1-DIGEST(cValue, cSalt)).
Does that mean that the salt is automatically added to the value prior to hashing? Didn't know that. Thnx
HEX-ENCODE(SHA1-DIGEST(cValue + cSalt)) gives the same as HEX-ENCODE(SHA1-DIGEST(cValue,cSalt))
