<eventDetail> for message digest calculation should be something like program="MD5Deep"; version="3.6".

I'm calculating the MD5 checksum in the script using the python hashlib for md5 checksums & some borrowed code to break the file into managable chunks.


What would you like this field to be in this instance?

How about program="hashlib.MD5" version="whatever" (maybe version of python?). Whatever succinctly tells us what calculated the checksum.

program = python; module = "hashlib.md5" ; version="pythonVersion"
