Too Long; Didn't Read
Cryptographic Hash Functions are a class of hash functions that are cryptographically secure. From password authentication and integrity verification to blockchain—these functions are used in a multitude of applications.
In this tutorial, we'll start by reviewing the basics of blockchain, and the relevance of cryptographic hash functions in making a blockchain secure. We'll then go over what cryptographic hash functions are, and their properties.
Additionally, we'll also see how to write code to obtain hashes, in both Python and Bash.
