Checksum

A checksum or hash sum is a small-size datum computed from an arbitrary block of digital data for the purpose of detecting errors which may have been introduced during its transmission or storage.The actual procedure which yields the checksum, given a data input is called a checksum function or checksum algorithm.Depending on its design goals, a good checksum algorithm will usually output a significantly different value, even for small changes made to the input.
