System.Security.Cryptography.SHA512Managed Class

Computes the System.Security.Cryptography.SHA512 hash algorithm for the input data using the managed library.

See Also: SHA512Managed Members


public class SHA512Managed : SHA512


The hash is used as a unique value of fixed size representing a large amount of data. Hashes of two sets of data should match if and only if the corresponding data also matches. Small changes to the data result in large unpredictable changes in the hash.

The hash size for the System.Security.Cryptography.SHA512Managed algorithm is 512 bits.
