OSSP uuid

http://www.ossp.org/pkg/lib/uuid/
Universally Unique Identifier (UUID) Toolkit

OSSP uuid is an application programming interface (API) and corresponding command line interface (CLI) for generating DCE 1.1 and ISO/IEC 11578:1996 compliant Universally Unique Identifiers (UUID). It supports DCE 1.1 variant UUIDs of version 1 (time and node based), version 3 (name based, MD5), version 4 (random number based) and version 5 (name based, SHA-1). UUIDs are 128 bit numbers which are intended to have a high likelihood of uniqueness over space and time and are computationally difficult to guess. They are globally unique identifiers which can be locally generated without contacting a global registration authority. UUIDs are intended as unique identifiers for both mass tagging objects with an extremely short lifetime and to reliably identify very persistent objects across a network.
