Generate an UUID

With this generator it is possible to generate a random UUID. An user can select the UUID version in the settings. Based on the selection of the UUID version (i.e. version 1, version 2, version 3 or version 4) once the generate button has been clicked, the UUID is generated. The UUID can be copied to the clipboard with the corresponding copy button.

What is an UUID

Uniformly unique identifiers (UUIDs) are 128-bit numbers that are used to identify information in computer systems. The term global unique identifier (GUID) is sometimes used as well. A UUID is a digital identifier that is globally unique as its name implies, and it does not depend on a central registry or coordination for its uniqueness. A UUID has an extremely low chance of duplication, so low that it is considered 0 by the UUID community. Information labeled with an UUID from independent sources can later be combined to create a single dataset or database without any conflict. There are different versions for the UUID's. A UUID version 1 is generated from a time and node id, which is usually the MAC address. A UUID version 2 is generated from an identifier, which is most likely a group or user id, from a time and a node id. A UUID version 4 is generated by generating a random number.
