Hashdeep – Cross-platform to Message Digests Files

hashdeep is a cross-platform tool for calculating hashes and message digests for any number of files, supports recursive directory structures traversal. It can also search for files by known hashes, or display files that do not match the entered hashes. The tool supports MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, Tiger, and Whirlpool hashes.

Hashdeep – Cross-platform to Message Digests Files

hashdeep is the updated name that the platform received by supporting all hashes combined into one executable file. Previously, the program was called md5deep that were added to support new forms including:

  • sha1deep – [ SHA-1 is used ] for computing a condensed representation of a message or a data file. When a message of any length < 264 bits is input, the SHA-1 produces a 160-bit output called a message digest.
  • sha256deep
  • sha3deep
  • tigerdeep – Tiger is a hashing function developed in 1995 by Ross Anderson and Eli Biham. The algorithm produces a 192 bit output, but truncated versions of 160 and 128 bits.
  • whirlpooldeep – Whirlpool is a hash function designed by Vincent Rijmen and Paulo S. L. M. Barreto that operates on messages less than 2256 bits in length, and produces a message digest of 512 bits.
