Cryptography - Data integrity


Data integrity in cryptography is perform with a hash function.

It is based on the fact that the output of a hash function changes when the input has changed.

Therefore, by controlling the computed output before and after any processing, you can verify if the data was changed in transit.

The output of this hash operation are known as message digest or digest.
