Ten years ago a post asked if Calc supported cryptographic hash functions, and was brushed off with the reply that only functions mentioned in the ODF standard are implementation candidates, and community-supplied extensions should be used.

Since then, Calc has added the RAND.NV() and RANDBETWEEN.NV() functions which are not part of the ODF standard (this is explicitly stated in their documentation), so this reason no longer applies.

As the original question pointed out, having hash/digest functions available natively in Calc would assist in creating more robust and secure processes where Calc is part of the workflow. Arguably, theyâ€™re at least as important as RAND.RV(). Is there a chance weâ€™ll be seeing hash and digest functions in the future?
