Cryptographic hash algorithm

At object creation, HCP uses a cryptographic hash algorithm to calculate a hash value for the object from the object data. HCP then uses this hash value to ensure the integrity of the object over time.

HCP supports these cryptographic hash algorithms:

  • MD5
  • SHA-1
  • SHA-256
  • SHA-384
  • SHA-512
  • RIPEMD-160

The cryptographic hash algorithm HCP uses for a namespace is set when the namespace is created. Once set, it cannot be changed.
