SHA-3! Yay! It’s much stronger than SHA-2 (sha256, sha384, sha512). The sha3 variants’ checksum even match the length of their sha2’s equivalent. However, as with most GNU userspace, you have tools like “sha512sum”. Where’s the “sha3-512sum”?

It’s …not. But it is available via rhash!

$ echo 'testfile' > testfile
$ for i in 224 256 384 512 ; do echo "SHA2 ${i}" ; eval sha${i}sum testfile ; echo "SHA3 ${i}" ; eval rhash --sha3-${i} testfile ; done
