Generate SHA-1, SHA-256, and SHA-512 with just one click with the help of this simple SHA-Generator. Enter the string for which you want to generate the SHA encryption and tap on the generate button. As soon as you tap on the button, this app will generate SHA-1, SHA-256, and SHA-512.
SHA stands for secure hashing algorithm and it is an advanced or a modified version of MD5. It is often used to hash data and various certificates. Just like other hash algorithms, the SHA algorithm also creates a unique hash for each string but the hash created for each string will be similar for that particular string.
So, in short, the SHA algorithm does not create a unique string for every input.
SHA hash algorithm is required in digital signature systems that are related to SSL/TLS connections. Different applications like SSH, and S-MIME use SHAs as well. If you have used GitHub for your project deployment then must have used the SHA-256 algorithm to generate a public key. This public key can be generated with the help of the ssh-keygen command from the command line interface(CLI).
This SSH generation app generates SSH hash in SHA-1, SHA-256, and SHA-512. Details about all these algorithms are shown below.
SHA-1 hash algorithm takes an input and produces a 160-bit value that is equal to 20-byte. SHA-1 is an old algorithm and not many of the latest systems prefer to use the SHA-1 algorithm.
SHA-256 is a 256-bit hash algorithm that is widely used in cryptographic security.
The SHA-512 algorithm generates a 512-bit or 64-byte hash value for any kind of input. This generated hash value is rendered as a hexadecimal number that is 128 digits long.
This is the most secure app to generate SHA output for any given input. To use this app, you just have to enter the input for which you want to generate a SHA hash and tap on the generate button. As soon as you tap on the button, you will receive the final answer in SHA-1 hash, SHA-256 hash, and SHA-512 hash.
