Most cryptographic hash functions process data in blocks of multiple bytes, since this is more efficient. For algorithms using 32-bit words, like MD5 and SHA-256, they are often 64 bytes in size; for algorithms using 64-bit words, like SHA-512 or BLAKE2b, it's usually 128-byte blocks; and SHA-3 is different still. Each of these hash functions contains a ...
