## ¶How to use this tool

Either type or paste your text into the input text area and whatever you put there will be hashed using the SHA-384 algorithm.

One thing about SHA-384, and most hashing algorithms, is that they return a fixed length string no matter how much text you hash. In the case of SHA-384, the output is always 384 bits which is represented as a 96 character string.

## ¶About SHA-384 Hash

SHA-384, or Secure Hash Algorithm 384-bit, is a member of the SHA-2 family of cryptographic hash functions. It generates a fixed-size output of 384 bits, represented as a 96-character hexadecimal number. Developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), SHA-384 provides a higher level of security compared to its predecessor, SHA-1.

Like other hash functions, SHA-384 takes an input of any size and produces a unique hash value. It is designed to be resistant to collision attacks, where two different inputs generate the same hash output. The larger output size of SHA-384 enhances its security compared to shorter hash functions, making it more resistant to certain cryptographic attacks.

SHA-384 is commonly used in security protocols and applications where a higher level of security is required, such as in digital signatures and certificates. It provides a stronger defense against brute-force attacks and other malicious activities, ensuring the integrity and authenticity of digital information.

## ¶Can I go the other way?

Want to take a SHA-384 hash and get back the original text? Bad news, you can't. That's the whole point of a hash. It's a one way function. You can't go backwards.
