SHA512 Class

Computes the SHA512 hash for the input data.

Namespace: System.Security.Cryptography
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
public abstract class SHA512 : HashAlgorithm
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public abstract class SHA512 extends HashAlgorithm
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
public abstract class SHA512 extends HashAlgorithm

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 SHA512 algorithm is 512 bits.

This is an abstract class. The only implementation of this class is SHA512Managed.

The following example computes the SHA512 hash for data and stores it in result. This example assumes that there is a predefined constant DATA_SIZE.

byte[] data = new byte[DATA_SIZE];
byte[] result;
SHA512 shaM = new SHA512Managed();
result = shaM.ComputeHash(data);

ubyte data[] = new ubyte[data_Size];
ubyte result[];
SHA512 shaM = new SHA512Managed();

result = shaM.ComputeHash(data);

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
