WHAT IS A HASHING ALGORITHM A SHA-256
The SHA-256 (Secure Hash Algorithm 256-bit) hash is a hashing algorithm that takes a message of any length as input and returns a hash value of a fixed length of 256 bits.
The SHA-256 hash is one of the most common hashing algorithms and is widely used in cryptography for data security, including digital signatures, data integrity checking, and password protection.
The SHA-256 hash is created by applying a series of mathematical operations to the input message. Any change to the input data will result in a significant change in the output hash value, making it useful for detecting data changes or forgery.
A SHA-256 hash is 64 characters long in hexadecimal or 256 bits in binary.
