Privatoria’s goal lies in delivering enhanced security to its clients. Poor security systems available today encourage you to adopt powerful and advanced technologies. That’s why striving for high-level data protection made us implement one more trusted solution in the industry of security. SHA-1 (Secure Hashing Algorithm-1) was published in 1995 by the US National Security Agency and now belongs to a Secure Hash Standard by NIST.
In fact, there are 4 different SHA algorithms, where SHA-1 is currently the most popular among them all. Even though there were a few serious attacks on SHA-1 in 2005, it still operates faultlessly and the security is not compromised.
To be more specific on the functionality of SHA-1, it is a hash function that is not intended for encrypting values. On the contrary, it’s like an index for values and it’s used for performing one-way transformation.
Please also note that Privatoria is integrated now with SHA-2 technology. It’s more secure.
