The reason for some of these problems were due to the types of files that were being sent or shared. Some files were either too big, or in the wrong format.Read the rest

FAQ – About Online Hash & Checksum Creation

Online-Convert.com is a free online conversion tool. You can convert many different files to more common formats, including audio, video, e-book, document, images and more. You can even convert across categories like text to speech or presentation to video.

However, that is not all you can do on Online-Convert.com! As an additional feature you can create checksums and hashes using different algorithms.

Since we get quite some questions about our hash creation, we decided to create this frequently asked questions (FAQ) entry for you.… Read the rest

Different Hash Functions and their Advantages

In former blog entries we have talked about what encryption, encoding, and hashing are and what you possibly might need checksums and hashes for. The names of several algorithms and ciphers that can be used for creating hashes or processing encryption have been mentioned as well, yet, which system should be used for which purpose?

This is the purpose of this article. Let’s have a look at different kinds of hashing and encryption ciphers you can use to produce checksums.… Read the rest

Checksum & Hash – What are they and what do I need them for?

In an earlier article, we have talked about the difference between encoding, encryption and hashing already. Today, we want to have a closer look at the latter of the three, the hashing function and the resulting hash or checksum.

For this purpose, we will have a brief look at what a checksum is before we concentrate on what checksums are used for.

What’s Hashing?

Using a hashing function creates a hash or checksum which are basically a seemingly random string of numbers, letters, and special characters – depending on the algorithm used for the hashing.… Read the rest

Encoding, Encryption, and Hashing

Encoding, encryption, hashing…

Those three can easily be confused since they serve roughly the same purpose. Yet, there are drastic differences between them. This article will serve the purpose of telling you, which method to use for which purpose, and what distinguishes them from one another.

Yet, all differences aside, encoding, encryption, and hashing do share some similarities:

  • All three methods transform data into another format
  • Encoding and encryption are reversible, while hashing is not

Now, let’s have a look at the three methods of data transformation one by one before you will presented a short summary of the differences and when to use which method.… Read the rest
