SHA-256 is one of the strongest hash functions currently available which is quite complex to decrypt. It is a successor of the SHA-1 hash functions which are also complex to code and has not yet been compromised in real world conditions. The 256-bit key generated makes SHA-256 a better partner function for AES.
The encryption algorithm used in SHA-256 hash is called the Cryptographic Hash Function. The algorithm processes the input string provided to it to generate a fixed size string of characters which is called the hash value. These encryption algorithms are extremely useful for integrity checks and digital signatures in various security applications. They are also used for authentication.
