This is a work in progress to give some purpose to my experimentation with Rust. Currently this wraps OpenSSL hashing functions and implements HMAC in native Rust code. I'll be looking to expand the functionality as I learn the language.

There is currently a flaw with this which is that the OpenSSL hash functions are not thread-safe without implementing the callbacks to locking in OpenSSL. Because the Rust test runner is very multi-threaded, there are occasional test failures as the tests stomp on each others' use of the buffer. I am looking at how to implement the hashing functions in native Rust.
