Whirlpool generator

Use Whirlpool hash generator to generate a whirlpool hash for any string input.

What is Whirlpool hash generator?

Whirlpool is a cryptographic hash function that was first published in 2000 by Vincent Rijmen and Paulo S. L. M. Barreto. It generates a 512-bit message digest from input data, which can then be used to verify the integrity of that data. Whirlpool is designed to be a secure and efficient hash function, with a high resistance to collision attacks, preimage attacks, and other forms of security vulnerabilities.

What is Whirlpool hash used for?

Whirlpool is commonly used in a variety of applications, including file verification, data protection, digital signatures, and secure key derivation. It is also used in various standards and specifications, such as the ISO/IEC 10118-3 international standard for hash functions and the NESSIE European cryptography project.

Although Whirlpool is considered to be a secure hash function, its use is less widespread than other hash functions such as SHA-256 or SHA-3. As a result, it may not be as well supported or integrated into software and hardware as other hash functions.

How many characters are in the Whirlpool hash?

The Whirlpool hash function generates a 512-bit message digest, which can be represented as a 64-byte or 128-character hexadecimal string. Each character in the hexadecimal string represents 4 bits of the message digest. When encoded in hexadecimal format, the Whirlpool hash will have 128 characters.
