Test vectors for HMAC-SHA3

Introduction

This page provides test vectors for the HMAC-SHA3 family of message authentication schemes using the new SHA-3 secure hash algorithm published in Standard SHA3 / FIPS202. It is an extended update of David Ireland's former test vector page based on Keccak. Because SHA-3 is not identical to the submitted Keccak, the HMAC-SHA3 test digests differ. The test vectors given below were generated using our my SHA-3 implementation. They are used for regression testing because for a long time there were no known published other vectors; meanwhile the test cases are cross-verified by independent implementations, and NIST test vectors are available from http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/ST/toolkit/examples.html#aMsgAuth.

The HMAC algorithm is described in RFC 2104. The block lengths B to be used in the HMAC algorithm (i.e. the byte-length of the digest input block) is given in Tab.3 of FIPS202 (144 bytes for SHA3-224, 136 bytes for SHA3-256, 104 bytes for SHA3-384, and 72 bytes for SHA3-512).

These tests use the seven test cases from RFC 4231, plus three extra tests (6a, 7a, 8) with key sizes greater than the longest block size for SHA-3 (144 bytes) or data bit sizes no multiple of 8.

Changes Mar. 2016: Fixed the result values for test case 8 (in earlier versions the data byte containing the five bits was hashed too), user-requested intermediate output values in hmac-sha3-intermediate.zip.

Changes Apr. 2017: Updated test program t_hmsha3.pas with the NIST test vectors and log files in t_hmac_sha3_nist.zip.

Test Case 8

Test with data bit size no multiple of 8, the data bits are '11001' from the NIST example using SHA-3 order (= 5 bits from LSB hex byte 13 or 5 bits from MSB hex byte c8).
  Key =          4a656665                          ("Jefe")
  Data =         '11001' or LSB 13 or MSB c8       (5 bits)
