What is a hash?

A hash is a mathematical "signature" of a document - a digital finger print. The chances of two documents having the same hash are infinitesimally small, even if every computer in the world today generated hashes as fast as it could, it would still take many time longer than the lifetime of a universe to find a duplicate. In practice, hashes are far more precise proofs of identity than DNA or fingerprints.
