Re: Not encryption but hashing

It's still a cryptographic hash. You may use hash functions that does not fulfill the proprieties of a cryptographic hash. For example in using an hash table you're going to use a hash algorithm but probably not a cryptographic one - which might require more CPU cycles than needed.
