This new release brings updates to Universal Storage, query optimization, and usability that you won’t want to miss.

SHA2

Hashes the given string or binary data using the secure hash algorithm, version 2. As of this writing (early 2015), SHA2 is considered secure for generating collision-resistant hashes.

Syntax

SHA2 ( plaintext, bitlen )

Arguments

  • plaintext: the data to hash.
  • bitlen: the size of the hash to create. Currently SingleStore DB supports only the values 256, 384, 512, and 0 (equivalent to 256).

Return Type

Lower case hexadecimal digits corresponding to the binary hash value.

Examples

select sha2('ohai', 0);
