What is it? Secure Hash Algorithm. Produces a condensed representation (hash) of a string of bits (e.g. protocol message). Because it is computationally infeasible to determine the original text knowing the digest it is useful in authentication algorithms. Because it is also infeasible to find two strings that produce the same digest, it is also useful in digital signing algorithms. See MD5.
