ADLER32 is a checksum algorithm that is s a 32-bit extension and
improvement of the Fletcher algorithm, used in the ITU-T X.224 / ISO 8073
standard. It can be used to calculate a 32-bit checksum for an arbitrary length
The ADLER32 algorithm is much faster than the CRC32 algorithm
yet still provides an extremely low probability of undetected errors.
The algorithm is not cryptographically strong, and should not be used for
authentication or digital signatures. Since the algorithm is designed for use as
a checksum algorithm, it is not suitable for use as a general hash algorithm.
The ADLER32 algorithm is
specified in RFC1950.
