Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is the SHA-256? (Definition)

SHA-256 is a hash standard (derived from SHA-2), a standard of the United States federal government which allows any binary data to correspond to a fingerprint of 64 hexadecimal characters which characterizes it in an almost unique way.

Example: dCode has for hash 254cd63ece8595b5c503783d596803f1552e0733d02fe4080b217eadb17711dd

SHA-256 encryption is a hash, which means that it is one-way and can not be decrypted.

How to encrypt a character string using SHA256?

SHA256 encryption computes a 256-bit or 32-byte digital fingerprint, whose hexadecimal writing consists of 64 characters. The algorithm uses non-linear functions such as:

$$ \operatorname{Ch}(E,F,G) = (E \wedge F) \oplus (\neg E \wedge G) $$

$$ \operatorname{Ma}(A,B,C) = (A \wedge B) \oplus (A \wedge C) \oplus (B \wedge C) $$

$$ \Sigma_0(A) = (A\!\ggg\!2) \oplus (A\!\ggg\!13) \oplus (A\!\ggg\!22) $$

$$ \Sigma_1(E) = (E\!\ggg\!6) \oplus (E\!\ggg\!11) \oplus (E\!\ggg\!25) $$

and also 64 constants: 0x428a2f98, 0x71374491, 0xb5c0fbcf, 0xe9b5dba5, 0x3956c25b, 0x59f111f1, 0x923f82a4, 0xab1c5ed5, 0xd807aa98, 0x12835b01, 0x243185be, 0x550c7dc3, 0x72be5d74, 0x80deb1fe, 0x9bdc06a7, 0xc19bf174, 0xe49b69c1, 0xefbe4786, 0x0fc19dc6, 0x240ca1cc, 0x2de92c6f, 0x4a7484aa, 0x5cb0a9dc, 0x76f988da, 0x983e5152, 0xa831c66d, 0xb00327c8, 0xbf597fc7, 0xc6e00bf3, 0xd5a79147, 0x06ca6351, 0x14292967, 0x27b70a85, 0x2e1b2138, 0x4d2c6dfc, 0x53380d13, 0x650a7354, 0x766a0abb, 0x81c2c92e, 0x92722c85, 0xa2bfe8a1, 0xa81a664b, 0xc24b8b70, 0xc76c51a3, 0xd192e819, 0xd6990624, 0xf40e3585, 0x106aa070, 0x19a4c116, 0x1e376c08, 0x2748774c, 0x34b0bcb5, 0x391c0cb3, 0x4ed8aa4a, 0x5b9cca4f, 0x682e6ff3, 0x748f82ee, 0x78a5636f, 0x84c87814, 0x8cc70208, 0x90befffa, 0xa4506ceb, 0xbef9a3f7, 0xc67178f2

The purpose of these functions is to maximize the footprint differences, even for small input string differences.

Example: SHA-256 is coded as' bbd07c4fc02c99b97124febf42c7b63b5011c0df28d409fbb486b5a9d2e615ea and SHA256 '(without hyphen) is coded as' b3abe5d8c69b38733ad57ea75eb8dbcae62db' (57 changed characters out of 64)

How to decrypt SHA256 cipher?

Since SHA256 is a hash based on non-linear functions, there is no decryption method.

dCode uses word databases whose hash has already been calculated (several million potential passwords) and checks if the hash is known. If it is not known or combined with salting the decryption will probably fail.

How to recognize SHA256 ciphertext?

The hash is composed of 64 hexadecimal characters 0123456789abcdef (ie 256 bits)

The SHA256 algorithm is used by blockchain and validation of Bitcoin transactions, any reference is a clue.
