The module provides the implementation of checksum algorithms belonging to CRC-32 family.

Quick Start

Use the following code to calculate a CRC-32 checksum for the specified data, be it System.Byte[], System.ReadOnlySpan<Byte> or System.IO.Stream:

using Gapotchenko.FX.Data.Integrity.Checksum;

var checksum = Crc32.Standard.ComputeChecksum(data);

If you need to calculate a CRC-32 checksum iteratively then the following approach becomes handy:

var iterator = Crc32.Standard.CreateIterator();

iterator.ComputeBlock(...); // block 1
// ...
iterator.ComputeBlock(...); // block N

// Compute the final checksum:
var checksum = iterator.ComputeFinal();

Available CRC-32 Algorithms

CRC-32 family of cyclic redundancy checks consists of several attested checksum algorithms with predefined parameters:

Algorithm Aliases Gapotchenko.FX Implementation Parameters: poly init refin refout xorout check
CRC-32 (standard, recommended) CRC-32/ISO-HDLC, CRC-32/ADCCP, CRC-32/V-42, CRC-32/XZ, PKZIP Crc32.Standard 0x04c11db7 0xffffffff true true 0xffffffff 0xcbf43926
CRC-32C CRC-32/BASE91-C, CRC-32/CASTAGNOLI, CRC-32/INTERLAKEN, CRC-32/ISCSI Crc32.Attested.C 0x1edc6f41 0xffffffff true true 0xffffffff 0xe3069283
CRC-32Q CRC-32/AIXM Crc32.Attested.Q 0x814141ab 0x00000000 false false 0x00000000 0x3010bf7f
CRC-32/AUTOSAR Crc32.Attested.Autosar 0xf4acfb13 0xffffffff true true 0xffffffff 0x1697d06a
CRC-32/POSIX CRC-32/CKSUM, CKSUM Crc32.Attested.Posix 0x04c11db7 0x00000000 false false 0xffffffff 0x765e7680
CRC-32/BZIP2 CRC-32/DECT-B, CRC-32/AAL5, B-CRC-32 Crc32.Attested.BZip2 0x04c11db7 0xffffffff false false 0xffffffff 0xfc891918
CRC-32/MEF Crc32.Attested.Mef 0x741b8cd7 0xffffffff true true 0x00000000 0xd2c22f51
CRC-32/MPEG-2 Crc32.Attested.Mpeg2 0x04c11db7 0xffffffff false false 0x00000000 0x0376e6e7

The check parameter shows what checksum value an algorithm should produce for "123456789" input string interpreted as an ASCII data:

// Get the byte representation of the ASCII string.
var data = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes("123456789");

// Compute the checksum.
var checksum = Crc32.Standard.ComputeChecksum(data);

// Print out the result ("Checksum = 0xcbf43926" for standard CRC-32).
Console.WriteLine("Checksum = 0x{0:x}", checksum);

Among all other posibilities, it is recommended to use the standard CRC-32 algorithm which comes under CRC-32, CRC-32/ISO-HDLC, CRC-32/ADCCP, CRC-32/V-42, CRC-32/XZ, PKZIP aliases and is available via Crc32.Standard property.

All other predefined algorithms are available via the corresponding properties of Crc32.Attested class.

Custom CRC-32 Algorithms

Once in a while, you may encounter a custom CRC-32 algorithm that is neither widely known nor characterized. In that case, you can instantiate a custom checksum algorithm with the desired parameters by hand:

var checksumAlgorithm = new CustomCrc32(poly, init, refin, refout, xorout);

If you want to formalize a custom algorithm even further, you may opt-in to creating a separate class for it with a convenient accessor property:

/// <summary>
/// Defines a custom CRC-32 algorithm.
/// </summary>
sealed class FooCrc32 : CustomCrc32
    FooCrc32() :
        base(poly, init, refin, refout, xorout)

    public static FooCrc32 Instance { get; } = new FooCrc32();

That will allow you to use the algorithm effortlessly from several places in the codebase later:

var checksum = FooCrc32.Instance.ComputeChecksum(...);
