CRC-64 checksum generator

Project description


Package for calculating checksums using 64-bit cyclic redundancy checks (CRC) according to the ISO 3309 standard.

Generator polynomial: x64 + x4 + x3 + x + 1

  • python 3.x


  • Calculate 64-bit checksum from a string:
from crc64iso.crc64iso import crc64

checksum = crc64iso.crc64("ILOVEMATH")
  • Calculate 64-bit checksum from incremental (bytes) data:
from crc64iso.crc64iso import crc64_pair, format_crc64_pair

crc_pair_1 = crc64_pair("ILOVE".encode())
crc_pair_2 = crc64_pair("MATH".encode(), crc_pair_1)
checksum = format_crc64_pair(crc_pair_2)
