•It is a transform of a string of indefinite length to a
n-bit binary number.

•The width of the icon
is typically 64 bits. The first part of the
icon, depending on the number of rows in the index,is used to specify which row
of an index is to be accessed. The rest is
used as a “confirmer” to be explained shortly.
•NeoCore uses a
patented technique to create the icon: to create a 64-bit icon you would access four 256-row
tables and XOR the resultant values.The technique allows processing 32 bits at a time from the input string.
