[openssl-users] Valid strings to be passed to EVP_get_digestbyname()

I am trying to use EVP APIs for generating sha256 hashes.

I think of the step is to pass the digest name to EVP_get_digestbyname()
and get the EVP_MD* structure

However, I am not able to find the valid string to be passed for SHA256
hash algorithm..  I tried passing "sha256", "SHA256", it shows "unknown
message digest"

Tried to do doc and google search, couldn't find the list of valid strings.

Can someone please help me with this ?

Thanks & Regards,
Nayna Jain
