The Sha1 hash algorithm produces a fixed-length hash value of 160 bits (20 bytes). The sha1 digest message is usually represented as a 40 character hexadecimal value. Try our sha1 encoder!
This function is used in security. Sha1 is mostly used to secure protocol as SSH, TLS, SSL, PGP, and IPsec.
Sha1 is more secure than md5 algorithm. The first collision has been done with success in 2005.
