HASH Back to Home Page

Hash is a program used to calculate the various hash values for a string or a binary file. This can be useful if you are downloading an executable file (.exe/.dll etc) and the author has provided a hash value under a different cover. This allows you to verify that the code has not been tampered with, which is not all that uncommon an occurrence these days. Personally, I would recommend nothing less than SHA256, which is why I have made it the default.

For text, simply type in or paste into the text box and hit [Enter] or click [Hash Now]. If using a non-Latin character set (eg. Chinese/Arabic), set the Unicode option.

To hash a binary file, use the button with the 3 dots to navigate and choose a file. Then click the [Hash Now] button. To change algorithms, simply select the appropriate option and click [Hash Now] again.

Hash is written in VB6, and is being made available in ZIP format. Installation is usually straight forward, using "setup.exe" to install files extracted from "Hash.cab" as laid out in "setup.lst".
