  • It looks like an MD5 hash in hex. – TheJulyPlot Sep 16 '15 at 14:40

Looks like a GUID and not a type of encoding. Stands for Globally Unique Identifier and has a number of potential uses depending on what you are trying to do.

  • Thanks, Yes it look like it. I will add this to my report. – pancho Sep 16 '15 at 6:32
