The SHA (Secure Hash Algorithm) can be used to encrypt data for secure transfer between applications.
The SHA256() function returns a string with the SHA256 encrypted hash as a 64-character hexadecimal string.
It is fully compatible with UTF-8 encoding.

- Usage:
1. Copy the SHA256() function into your JavaScript script.
2. To get the SHA256 hash of a string, calls the SHA256() function:   SHA256('string'); .

- Example. The string entered into an input text field will be encrypted with SHA256, and added into another input form field.
<h4>Example JavaScript SHA256</h4>

<form action='#' method='post'>
 Enter a text:<br/>
 <input type='text' name='strex' id='strex' size='25' /> <input type='button' id='cryptstr' value='Encrypt' /><br/>
 SHA256 hash string:<br/>
<input type='text' name='strcrypt' id='strcrypt' size='58' />
</form>
