What is Difference between White-box Testing and Unit testing?

In Unit testing, the smallest testable parts of an application, called units, are tested .
Unit testing involves only those characteristics that are vital to the performance of the unit under test. This encourages developers to modify the source code without immediate concerns about how such changes might affect the functioning of other units or the program as a whole.

White-box testing is a method of testing software that tests internal structures or workings of an application, as opposed to its functionality
While white-box testing can be applied at the unit, integration and system levels of the software testing process, it is usually done at the unit level. It can test paths within a unit, paths between units during integration, and between subsystems during a system–level test. Though this method of test design can uncover many errors or problems, it might not detect unimplemented parts of the specification or missing requirements.
