* UPDATE: this post - Generating Deterministic GUIDS Part 2 - contains a Silverlight widget which generates GUIDs for you.

Recently I had a need to generate deterministic GUIDs for a string, so a given string would always result in the same unique id.

In the unlikely event you also have a need for it (mine related to UDDI Service Provider names), there's a very simple way to do it using an MD5 hash as an intermediate step:

private Guid GetDeterministicGuid(string input)

{

//use MD5 hash to get a 16-byte hash of the string:

MD5CryptoServiceProvider provider = new MD5CryptoServiceProvider();

byte[] inputBytes = Encoding.Default.GetBytes(input);

byte[] hashBytes = provider.ComputeHash(inputBytes);

//generate a guid from the hash:

Guid hashGuid = new Guid(hashBytes);

return hashGuid;

}

The input string can be of any length, and the hash will always be the same for a given input. MD5 generates a 128-bit hash, in the form of a 16 element byte array which can be parsed directly by System.Guid.

Generating random numbers in C is needed in several applications. For instance, generating a default password for a new user on a network uses random generation of numbers and letters. Random numbers are generated in gaming applications for character battles and fighting. Whatever the reason, generating the numbers is possible through an internal C function. Thanks.

Choose a seed value, if required, and enter it in the appropriate argument location for the function call. You may have to specify the seed number in a separate function. For some random number functions, there is a default seed number or a default method for generating a seed number. Thanks for sharing information.

I was wondering if it would be better to use a fixed Encoding rather than the Encoding.Default.

Ie do this:

byte[] inputBytes = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(input);

That way you won't get different results if the default codepage of the machine changes.

A unique reference number used as an identifier in computer software. This is also used by various implementations of the universally unique identifier standard. GUIDs also used to uniquely distinguish different software component interfaces.

# re: Generating Deterministic GUIDs

This will not generate GUIDs as it is possible for two different strings to have the same MD5 hash. That fails the unique part of globally *unique* identifier.

A real GUID is going to have a progressing part (a time stamp) to make sure that GUIDs created on the same machine will never be the same and a predetermined unique part (like a hardware id) to make sure that GUIDs created on other machines will never be the same.

By using a MD5 hash instead of CoCreateGuid you are replacing those bits that would never be the same as anyone elses bits with other bits that will eventually exactly match someone elses real GUID if you try enough different input strings. The odds of this happening are extremely low but it will happen eventually.
