Summary

SHA-256 is a member of the NSA-designed SHA-2 cryptographic hash functions. SHA stands for the algorithm Secure Hash. Cryptographic hash functions are mathematical operations running on digital data; a person can determine the integrity of the data by comparing the computed hash (the output from executing the algorithm) to a known and expected hash value. It is possible to generate a one-way hash from any data piece, but the data can not be generated from the hash.
