Cryptographic Hash Function

« Back to Glossary Index

A cryptographic hash function is an algorithm that takes an input (or ‘message’) and returns a fixed-size string of bytes. The output is typically a ‘hash value’ or ‘digest’ that is unique to each unique input. It is a one-way function, meaning a hash cannot be reversed to get the original input.
