     The krb5_checksum structure holds a Kerberos checksum.  There is no
     component inside krb5_checksum that is directly referable.

     The functions are used to create and verify checksums.
     krb5_create_checksum() creates a checksum of the specified data, and puts
     it in result.  If crypto is NULL, usage_or_type specifies the checksum
     type to use; it must not be keyed. Otherwise crypto is an encryption
     context created by krb5_crypto_init(), and usage_or_type specifies a key-

     krb5_verify_checksum() verifies the checksum against the provided data.

     krb5_checksum_is_collision_proof() returns true is the specified checksum
     is collision proof (that it's very unlikely that two strings has the same
     hash value, and that it's hard to find two strings that has the same
     hash). Examples of collision proof checksums are MD5, and SHA1, while
     CRC32 is not.

     krb5_checksum_is_keyed() returns true if the specified checksum type is
     keyed (that the hash value is a function of both the data, and a separate
     key). Examples of keyed hash algorithms are HMAC-SHA1-DES3, and RSA-
     MD5-DES. The "plain" hash functions MD5, and SHA1 are not keyed.

     krb5_crypto_get_checksum_type() returns the checksum type that will be
     used when creating a checksum for the given crypto context.  This
     function is useful in combination with krb5_checksumsize() when you want
     to know the size a checksum will use when you create it.

     krb5_cksumtype_valid() returns 0 or an error if the checksumtype is
     implemented and not currently disabled in this kerberos library.

     krb5_checksumsize() returns the size of the outdata of checksum function.

     krb5_copy_checksum() returns a copy of the checksum krb5_free_checksum()
     should use used to free the new checksum.

     krb5_free_checksum() free the checksum and the content of the checksum.

     krb5_free_checksum_contents() frees the content of checksum in cksum.

     krb5_hmac() calculates the HMAC over data (with length len) using the
     keyusage usage and keyblock key.  Note that keyusage is not always used
     in checksums.

     krb5_checksum_disable globally disables the checksum type.
