SHA384Managed Class

Computes the SHA384 hash for the input data using the managed library.

For a list of all members of this type, see SHA384Managed Members.


[Visual Basic]
Public Class SHA384Managed
   Inherits SHA384
public class SHA384Managed : SHA384
public __gc class SHA384Managed : public SHA384
public class SHA384Managed extends SHA384

Thread Safety

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


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 SHA384Managed algorithm is 384 bits.

This is an abstract class. The only implementation of this class is SHA384Managed.


[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example computes the SHA384Managed hash for data and stores it in result. This example assumes that there is a predefined constant DATA_SIZE.

[Visual Basic] 
Dim data(DATA_SIZE) As Byte
Dim result() As Byte
Dim shaM As New SHA384Managed()
result = shaM.ComputeHash(data)

byte[] data = new byte[DATA_SIZE]; 
byte[] result;
SHA384 shaM = new SHA384Managed(); 
result = shaM.ComputeHash(data);

Byte data[] = new Byte[DATA_SIZE]; 
Byte result[];
SHA384* shaM = new SHA384Managed(); 
result = shaM->ComputeHash(data);
