The BINARY and VARBINARY types in MySQL are similar to CHAR and VARCHAR but they store binary strings rather than non-binary strings (i.e. byte strings rather than character strings).

NOTE

Byte strings have the binary character set and collation. Comparison and sorting is performed based on the numeric value of the bytes.

BINARY

BINARY(M)

M represents column length in bytes. It is optional and defaults to 1.

Values will be right-padded with the zero byte (0x00) to the specified length. The right-padding is included in retrieval.

VARBINARY

VARBINARY(M)

M represents column length in bytes.

Unlike for BINARY, no padding is performed when VARBINARY values are stored.
