SM3 is a cryptographic hash function used in the Chinese National Standard. It was published by the State Cryptography Administration (Chinese: 国家密码管理局) on 2010-12-17[1][2] as "GM/T 0004-2012: SM3 cryptographic hash algorithm".[1]

SM3 is mainly used in digital signatures, message authentication codes, and pseudorandom number generators.[3] The algorithm is public[4][5] and is claimed by the China Internet Network Information Center to be like SHA-256 in security and efficiency.[6]

Definitive standards[edit]

SM3 is defined in each of:

  • GM/T 0004-2012: SM3 cryptographic hash algorithm[1]
  • GB/T 32905-2016: Information security techniques -- SM3 cryptographic hash algorithm[7]
  • ISO/IEC 10118-3:2018 -- IT Security techniques -- Hash-functions -- Part 3: Dedicated hash-functions[3]
