Hi Mike, This design does not implement any registration. The hashing algorithm is selected from the array index specified by PcdSystemHashPolicy value, just like switch..case, based on recommendation by Jian. Are you referring to the document attached to Bugzilla ticket mentioned below? I plan to update it as soon as we agree on the final design. Apologies if it was misleading today.
The reason this lib was added to SecurityPkg and not CryptoPkg was done because the decision to choose hashing algorithm is based on PCD, PcdSystemHashPolicy. CryptoPkg only provides API for accessing specific hashing algorithm and there is no mechanism to choose, as there is no precedent to using a PCD in CryptoPkg and it does not look like that needs to change. On the other hand, we actually do have API support in SecurityPkg (HashInstanceLib). Our design provides similar API support, although, it is much simpler and does not involve registration as in HashInstanceLib. Do you still think this lib should be implemented in CryptoPkg? If yes, how do you propose the user choose the desired hashing mechanism?

I recommend a simpler lib design and add it to CryptoPkg instead of SecurityPkg. Providing a different method to access the hashing functions in BaseCryptLib is not a Security feature, it is a Crypto feature.
