Adler32 Hash

What is Adler-32?

Adler32 is an algorithm for computing checksums.

Adler32 is forgeable, and thus not suited for preventing against intentional malicious modification of files, but still useful for detecting corruption. It’s fast, faster than CRC-32, and used in the popular zlib compression library. Zlib (and adler32) are used by all major operating systems, as well as on consoles like the Xbox One and Playstation 4.
