File Fingerprinting

File fingerprinting, also known as file hashing or data fingerprinting, is a technique used to create a unique digital signature for a file or piece of data.

Fingerprints are generated by running a cryptographic algorithm on a file or piece of data to create a fixed-length output “hash” unique to that file. Organizations use file fingerprinting to verify the authenticity and integrity of a file or identify duplicate files.
