Hashing

From CASRAI dictionary

Hashing

1. The transformation of a string of characters into a usually shorter fixed-length value or key that represents the original string. Hashing is used to index and retrieve items in a database because it is faster to find the item using the shorter hashed key than to find it using the original value. 2. Used in many encryption algorithms.
