What is SHA-256?

SHA-256 is the 256-bit component of the “SHA-2” data integrity check standard (a.k.a. “hash”).  Like SHA-512, it is one of two unique algorithms that make up a SHA-2 hash, but SHA-256 is optimized for 32-bit calculations rather than 64-bit calculations.

See “SHA-2” for more information.
