Its goal is to provide a way to give an informal "receipt" to a participant to they can detect tampering. A fingerprint is a hashed representation of the content. It’s useful to ensure the content hasn’t been tampered with, as a single modification would result in a totally different value. It’s calculated using a SHA256 hashing algorithm. In order to replicate it yourself, you can use a MD5 calculator online and copy-paste the source data.
