Secure Hash Algorithm; a hashing algorithm that produces a 160-bit digest based upon the input. The algorithm produces SHA passwords that are irreversible or prohibitively expensive to reverse.

a popular algorithm used to generate Digital Signatures. SHA-1 produces a 160-bit hash value. This produces a larger message digest, making it more secure, but slightly slower that the MD5 algorithm.

A hash algorithm developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the National Security Agency. See Certificate, Digital Signature.

Secure Hashing Algorithm. The algorithm operates on any input length less than 2 64 to produce a message digest. The SHA-1 algorithm is input to DSA.

A NIST defined hashing algorithm producing a 160 bit result from an arbitrary sized source as specified in FIPS 180-1. Reference: http://csrc.ncsl.nist.gov/cryptval/shs.html.

Secure Hash Algorithm is an algorithm developed by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology ( NIST). SHA-1 is used to create a cryptographic hash of a message of data. It has a larger message digest, so it is considered to be somewhat stronger than MD5.

ecure ash lgorithm Secure Hash Algorithm was developed and published by the NIST in 1994. The algorithm creates a 160 bit message digest from a up to 2^64 bit long message.

Secure Hash Algorithm 1. A U.S. standard published by the National Institutes of Sciences and Technology. A stronger hash algorithm derived from MD4. Has 160-bit out.

Secure Hash Algorithm. The SHA family is a set of related hash algorithms, the most common being SHA-1. It is employed in a variety of popular security applications and protocols, including TLS, SSL, PGP, and IPSec. Other varieties include SHA-0, SHA-2, SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512

Secure Hash Algorithm, a hash function used by the US Government.

Secure Hash Algorithm designed by NIST and NSA to be used with Digital Signature Standard (DSS) to ensure the security of the Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA). Produces a 160-bit hash.

Secure Hash Algorithm Revision 1

See definition for: Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA-1)

One of the two most popular non-keyed message digest programs. It makes a 160-bit digest and has so far been immune from the cryptanalytic attacks successfully mounted against MD5.

Secure Hash Algorithm 1. A secure hash algorithm standard defined in FIPS PUB 180-1 (SHA-1). Developed by the National Institute of Standard Technology (NIST), SHA-1 (which effectively replaces SHA-0) produces a 160-bit hash for message authentication. Longer-hash variants include SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, and SHA-512 (sometimes grouped under the name "SHA-2"). SHA-1 is more secure than MD5.

Secure Hash Algorithm specified in the Federal Information Publication 180-1 (FIPS 180-1). (see Hash)

A message authentication mechanism that hashes a file of arbitrary length into a 160-bit value; it is more processor intensive, but renders higher security.
