Generation of a time-base UUID
Your generated UUID:

The following time-based UUID has been automatically generated for you:
              
You can copy/paste this hexadecimal value where needed.


UUIDs are an octet string of 16 octets (128 bits). The 16 octets can be interpreted as an unsigned integer encoding, and the resulting integer value can be used as a subsequent arc of {joint-iso-itu-t uuid(25)} (or 2.25) in the OID tree. This enables OIDs without any registration procedure.

Government health warnings: It is important to note that identical UUID values might be used as subsequent arcs of OID 2.25, although the probability of this occuring is very small. The probability is increased if UUIDs are generated from MD5 hash values rather than from SHA-1 hash values and cryptographic-quality random numbers.
