A few hash functions, which are cryptographic in forms, are generally used to safeguard and protect important pieces of information from unwanted alterations. This is used extensively in the internet worldwide, in the manufactured software from a wide number of companies. These functions are generally accompanied with digital signatures and other ways of authentication.
The two of the most prevalent hash functions are Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) and another one is Message Digest Algorithm-5 (MD5). These codes are used to verify the integrity of the files which are generated from a particular source. There are generally two ways to know the checksum values and they are calculating the checksum values and comparing them with the data available. This piece of tool is a utility, which checks the hash values i.e. SHA and MD5.
MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility is also very simple. What the user has to do is select a particular file, right click on them and select SHA or MD5 to check their hash values. The user can click on a number of available buttons, where one can copy the generated hash code to the clipboard or even verify the code with an available code from an authentic source. MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility is also programmed with a sleek and easy user interface. This program is also written to work efficiently with the latest versions of Windows.
