Power of Hashing

Hashing is the process of solving a problem using a
function that takes a variable input and returns a
fixed-length output.
Hash functions are used to create an ordered
sequence of digits that represent numbers with
special properties.
A cryptographic hash function is a function that takes
an arbitrary block of data as input and returns a
fixed-length string with a fixed number of bits
called the output.
These functions are specified in terms of a data
transformation, and a large family of
functions can be specified by choosing different
data transformation functions.
Hashing is a basic process of creating digital
signatures over data.
It is a process by which a fixed amount of data is
transformed into a fixed length string, called a hash,
which is unique to that data.
Hashing is the process by which data is compressed
into a form that is uncrackable by a third party.
This is done through a chain of unique data values,
called a hash value.
Hashing is the process by which data is converted into
a fixed-length string that is used to verify
the authenticity of a piece of data.
A cryptographic hash function is a mathematical
function that takes a bit of input data and maps it
into a fixed-length string that is uncrackable by
anyone except the person who generated it.
This property makes it especially useful for digital
signatures, where it is required to verify that a
signature is valid without having access to the
original message.
It is used to ensure that the data cannot be changed
without being detected.
The collision detection property of cryptographic
hash functions is desirable when using digital
signatures, and is a feature of most cryptographic
hash functions.
The collision detection property ensures that the
behaviour of the hash function is not affected by
small changes in the message.
The property also ensures that the hash function is not
re-used for two different messages, even if the
messages are identical.
A Hash function is the mathematical function that
takes a piece of data and maps it into a fixed-length
string, so that the same piece of data cannot be
represented by two strings with different hash values.
A cryptographic hash is a mathematical function that
takes a string of arbitrary size and produces a
fixed-length string of arbitrary size.
Hashing functions are designed to take in an arbitrary
string of arbitrary size and produce a fixed-size string
which is unique to that input.
Cryptographic hash functions are used in many
applications including data authentication, integrity
checking, digital signatures, and message
authentication.
