hashid - Identify the different types of hashes used to encrypt data


hashid [-h] [-e] [-m] [-j] [-o FILE] [--version] INPUT


hashID is a tool written in Python 3.x which supports the identification of over 210 unique hash types using regular expressions. It is able to identify a single hash, parse a file or read files in a directory and iden‐ tify the hashes within them. hashID is also capable of including the corresponding hash‐ cat mode and/or JohnTheRipper format in its output. Although hashID is written in Python 3.x it should also work with Python 2.7.


-e, --extended list all possible hash algorithms including salted passwords -m, --mode include corresponding hashcat mode in output -j, --john include corresponding JohnTheRipper format in output -o FILE, --outfile FILE write output to file (default: STDOUT) -h, --help show help message and exit --version show program's version number and exit
