Understanding UUIDs

UUIDs (Universally Unique Identifiers) are 128-bit numbers used to uniquely identify information in computer systems. Think of them as digital fingerprints for data, where each UUID is distinct and one-of-a-kind.

  1. Universality: They can be generated by any machine without needing a central coordinating authority, making them perfect for distributed systems.
  2. Uniqueness: The algorithm behind UUIDs ensures that each identifier is unique, reducing the likelihood of duplication to near zero.
  3. Versatility: UUIDs are used in a wide range of applications, from identifying software components to ensuring database uniqueness. Types of UUIDs

There are several versions of UUIDs, each serving different purposes:

  • Version 1: Based on timestamp and MAC address.
  • Version 2: Similar to V1 but with additional information.
  • Version 3 & 5: Generate UUIDs using namespace-based hashing (MD5 or SHA1).
  • Version 4: Randomly generated, offering the highest level of uniqueness. This is the version we use for our tool.
