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 identify the hashes within them. hashID is also capable of including the corresponding hashcat mode and/or JohnTheRipper format in its output. Although hashID is written in Python 3.x it should also work with Python 2.7.

-o FILE, --outfile FILE
