CRC (Cyclic redundancy checksum)

Consistent Hashing


A cyclic redundancy check (CRC) 1) is a message digest (ie verify data integrity)


cyclic the algorithm is based on cyclic codes
redundancy it expands the message without adding information
check it helps verifie the data (ie message digest)

The check value has a fixed length

A hash function is an encryption crypto algorithm that takes as data as input (possibly large and of variable-sized) and produces a short fixed-length integer value (generally printed as an hexadecimal...
Cryptography - Message Digest (checksum|hash) (sha1|md5)

A message digest is the output of hash function (also known as a checksum). The input is known as the message (ie a piece of data: file, payload). It is used to verify that the data has not been altered...
