Apple is known for its encryption process worldwide; it did not change their encryption technology (256 bit) even after the recent tussle with FBI (Federal; Bureau of Investigation). Unique Device Identifier is the sequence of 40 characters which is a combined form of letters and numbers. This number is device specific, and every Apple device has a unique UDID code. Simply it’s a serial number which is very hard to guess. If you want an example you can see here- 2b6f0cc904d137be2e1730235f5664094b831186. It’s impossible to break without knowing it.
