By all means, go ahead! I believe it should be very easy, I just haven't got a round tuit. I am not the original author of hmac-md5, which was our first format, so I am in no way an expert on HMAC (quite the contrary) and I merely copied that code and changed the digest function when I wrote the hmac-sha1/2 formats. But if you get stuck, just bring your questions to the list. magnum
