SHA384 Class

Computes the SHA384 hash for the input data.

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

public ref class SHA384 abstract : public HashAlgorithm
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public abstract class SHA384 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 SHA384 algorithm is 384 bits.

The following example computes the SHA384 hash for data and stores it in result. This example assumes that there is a predefined constant DATA_SIZE.

array<Byte>^ data = gcnew array<Byte>( DATA_SIZE );
array<Byte>^ result;
SHA384^ shaM = gcnew SHA384Managed;
result = shaM->ComputeHash( data );

ubyte data[] = new ubyte[data_Size];
ubyte result[];
SHA384 shaM = new SHA384Managed();

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.
