UUID Generator

Random UUID (version 4)

Defined UUID (version 3 and 5)






Answers to Questions (FAQ)

How to generate a UUID?

Version 4 is made up of random bits based on the timestamp of the system that generates them. The timestamp is usually shown in microseconds (one thousandth of a second) since a specific date (called EPOCH). The result is therefore pseudo-random and presents a very probable uniqueness (not guaranteed). Each time a UUID v4 is generated, the code generated is different.

Example: UUID v4 0cc12fda-deca-4f24-918b-f0884d2bb911

Version 3 is generated from an MD5 hash of a 2-part string: on one side a UUID named namespace , and on the other a character string containing the name to be encoded .

Version 5 is the same as version 3 but generated from a SHA-1 hash.

Each time a v3 or v5 UUID is generated, the generated code is always the same.

How to decode a UUID?

A version 4 UUID is completely random and contains nothing to decode.

A UUID version 3 or 5 can sometimes have been generated with a character string but it has been hashed with MD5 or SHA-1 cryptographic functions which are not intended to be decoded.

How to recognize a UUID?

The UUID code contains 128 bits presented in the form of 32 hexadecimal characters divided into 8-4-4-4-12 digits (base 16) and separated by a dash -
