  • BINARY_COMPARE. Compares two binary values and returns TRUE (1) if they are the same and FALSE (0) if they are different.
  • BINARY_CONCAT. Concatenates two or more binary values together and returns the concatenated value.
  • BINARY_LENGTH. Returns the length of a binary value.
  • BINARY_SECTION. Returns a portion of a binary value.
  • DEC_HEX. Decodes a hex encoded value and returns a binary value with the binary representation of the data.
  • ENC_HEX. Encodes binary data to string data using hexadecimal encoding.
  • SHA256. Calculates the SHA-256 digest of the input value.
