Secure Hash / Message Digest

Tool version

0.0.1

Keywords

MD5

Summary

Applies a cryptographic hash function to a dataset.

Description

This tool generates a Secure Hashes / Message Digests of a dataset using one or several selected algorithms. The obtained message digest generates a fingerprint of a file and is particularly useful to verify data integrity.

General comments (Warning/Tips)

None

Input

  • Text file: select the input file.
