What is a hash

A hash function is any function that can be used to map data of arbitrary size to fixed-size values. The values returned by a hash function are called hash values, hash codes, digests, or simply hashes.

How it works

The application receives the input data and then processes it either on the server or on the client side. Where the data will be processed depends whether the “Privacy mode” checkbox is checked or not.

If the data is processed on the client side, the browser will execute the JavaScript? functions according to the selected hash type and display the results in the corresponding textarea.

If the data is processed on the server side, the sever will execute the encoding / decoding PHP? functions according to the selected hash type and display the results in the corresponding textarea.

What is stored

At the moment, nothing is stored. But in the future we may store the input data and it’s hash as a way to improve this application and maybe even develop new applications utilizing the stored data.
