FNV stands for Fowler–Noll–Vo, which is the combination of the founders name. FNV also a non-cryptographic hash function.
The FNV is pretty fast and the use case is in hashing URLs, IP Address, hostname, and others. The drawbacks of this algorithm is that this algorithm not suited for cryptographic use.
There's few versions of FNV, it is: - FNV-1 - FNV-1a - FNV-0
The current versions which are widely used are FNV-1 and FNV-1a, since the FNV-0 is deprecated.
FNV is non-cyptographic because:
The difference between FNV-1a hash and FNV-1 hash is in the order which the multiplication and XOR is performed.
