What is SHA-512?

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

See “SHA-2” for more information.
