Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is SHA-512? (Definition)

SHA-512 is a hashing algorithm used in cryptography, based on SHA-2 with the 512-bit variant. It works on the same principle as SHA-256, except that it calculates a 512-bit digital fingerprint - 128 hexadecimal characters.

How to encrypt a character string using SHA512?

SHA512 encryption is similar to SHA256, but with 512 bits.

Example: dCode has for fingerprint f825e3e0ebc4f343a7575b319236755dfe6dfb489be11d7c359118be03b5c5ed0113131f4235e22e8e0d226b65ec5abb47d9112b624b573ffb3e154056d62d09

The main difference with SHA-256 is the size of the processed data (1024 bits is twice as large) and the use of 64-bit words and calculations (better suited to 64-bit architectures).

How to decrypt SHA512 cipher?

Since SHA512 is a hash algorithm based on non-linear functions, it is designed to prevent any decryption method and so is made to be uncrackable.

The only possible method is to assume that the hash content is a password, to recover a database of online passwords and to compare their hash with the desired one. This method can not cover all possible passwords and does not work often, yet it is the best method to date.

dCode uses databases with common words associated with their hash that has already been calculated (i.e. potentially several million passwords) and checks if the hash is one of those known. If it is not in the list or combined with salting, the decryption will fail systematically.

How to recognize SHA512 ciphertext?

The hash is composed of 128 hexadecimal characters 0123456789abcdef (ie 512 bits)
