Hashes or checksums are used for verification of a file’s integrity. A downloaded file can be checked via the use of MD5/SHA256 hash to verify if the file has been tampered with. Hashes are also used in encryption, password storage and for the protection of sensitive data. A HashGenerator helps in quickly computing or verifying the hash for a file.
HashSlash is a portable tool for developers which allows finding MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA384, SHA512 and RIPEMD160 checksums/hashes from any selected file. It merely requires selecting a file and specifying a hash type to get an instant hash generation.
To get started, add the file to process, select the hashes to be found and click the Start button. HashSlash will instantly generate the hash. The available options for generating a checksum/hash includes MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA382, SHA512 and RIPEMD160.
You can also copy the hash to clipobord for pasting it onto another application, manage reading order, show and insert unicode characters via right-click context menu.
It works on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
