I think that you mean HashCode

HashCodes are usually used to increase the performance of large collections of data. The Hashcode is used for searching into the right subset of the data.

HashCode is used by the following collections, HashSet, HashMap.

Take a look at the JavaDoc for Object.hashCode(). It explains, beyond the nice summary that Wilhelm provided, details about the hashCOde() method.
