I am looking for an implementation of the sha-1 algorithm that I can use
for the guid library that I am writing. Since I hope to submit this to
boost, I need the sha-1 code to conform to the boost license requirements.
I have found http://www.packetizer.com/security/sha1/.
Here are the contents of the license.txt file:

Would this license prevent the guid library from being accepted as a boost
library? If so, does anyone know of code for the sha-1 algorithm that
would not prevent the guid library from being accepted as a boost library?
