sha3 utilities: Print or check SHA3 digests

Command line that wraps sha3 lib from RustCrypto/hashes.
Commands and options are similar to the GNU Linux command shaXXXsum.

One of the goals of this project is to provide a cross-platform solution that does not require external dependencies.


  • Using rust toolschain: cargo install sha3sum
  • Otherwise see Wiki


  • Get help: sha3sum --help
  • Create for a file an hash Sha3-256 sha3sum -a 256 <path to file>
  • Create for all file in repository with Keccak512 sha3sum -a Keccak512 <path>
  • Create a hash for a text file using text mode sha3sum -a 384 -t <path to file>
  • Create for a file a hash Sha3-256 with output BSD style sha3sum -a 256 --tag <path to file>
  • Read SHA3 sums from the FILEs and check them sha3sum -c <path to file>


All releases are build and tested using following OS:

  • Linux: x86_64
  • Linux aarch64
  • FreeBSD: amd64
  • Windows: x86_64
