SHA-224 generator

What is SHA-224 generator

SHA-224 (Secure Hash Algorithm 224) is a variant of the SHA-2 cryptographic hash function family. It produces a 224-bit (28-byte) hash value, which is a truncated version of the SHA-256 output. SHA-224 is designed to provide enhanced security compared to its predecessor, SHA-1, and it is commonly used for applications requiring stronger data integrity and security measures. It operates similarly to other SHA-2 algorithms, but with a shorter hash size, making it suitable for situations where a shorter hash length is preferred without sacrificing much in terms of security.
