Hashes or checksums are used for file integrity verification. Many a times files downloaded from the Internet are checked with MD5/SHA256 hash to verify if the file is tampered. Hashes are also used in encryption, password storage and to protect sensitive data. A HashGenerator helps in quickly computing or verifying the hash for a file.
HashGenerator is a simple application (also available in portable form), which automates the generation of 14 different type of hashes or checksums. It support the MD5 family, SHA family, BASE64, CRC32, ROT13, RIPEMD, ALDER32, HAVAL, WHIRLPOOL etc. It can generate hash for files and text input. You can directly enter or paste any text to generate hash.
Select an input method, i.e. File or Text, choose a file from the folder icon or past text into the text box and click on Generate Hash.
After the process is complete, you can export this data in text an HTML format from the buttons at the bottom of the interface.
