Cyclic Redundancy check

is an error-detecting code that is commonly used in digital networks and storage devices, to detect accidental changes in raw data.Blocks of data entering these systems get a short check value attached, based on the remainder of a polynomial division of their contents; on retrieval the calculation is repeated, and corrective action can be taken against presumed data corruption if the check values do not match.
