Packages and Binaries:
Hashrat is a hash-generation utility that supports the md5, sha1, sha256, sha512, whirlpool, jh-244, jh256, jh-384 and jh-512 hash functions, and also the HMAC versions of those functions. It can output in ’traditional' format (same as md5sum and shasum and the like), or it’s own format.
Hashes can be output in octal, decimal, hexadecimal, uppercase hexadecimal or base64.
Hashrat also supports directory recursion, hashing entire devices, generating a hash for an entire directory, operations in remote machines and several other features. It has a ‘CGI’ mode that can be used as a web-page to lookup hashes.
This tool is useful in forensics investigations and network security.
How to install:
sudo apt install hashrat
Hashing tool supporting several hashes and recursivity

MD5: Ronald Rivest Whirlpool: Vincent Rijmen, Paulo S. L. M. Barreto JH: Hongjun Wu SHA: The NSA (thanks, but please stop reading my email. It's kinda creepy.). Special thanks to Professor Hongjun Wu for taking the time to confirm that his JH algorithm is free for use in GPL programs. Special, special thanks to Joao Eriberto Mota Filho for doing a LOT of work to make hashrat debian ready! Usage: hashrat [options] [path to hash]... hashrat -c [options] [input file of hashes]...

Has the same format as the find command, e.g. -10 is younger than ten days, +10 is older than ten, and 10 is ten days old -mmin <mins> Only hash items <min> minutes old. Has the same format as the find command, e.g. -10 is younger than ten mins, +10 is older than ten, and 10 is ten mins old -myear <years> Only hash items <years> old. Has the same format as the find command, e.g. -10 is younger than ten years, +10 is older than ten, and 10 is ten years old -exec In CHECK or MATCH mode only examine executable files. -dups Search for duplicate files. -n <length> Truncate hashes to <length> bytes -segment <length> Break hash up into segments of <length> chars seperated by '-' -c CHECK hashes against list from file (or stdin) -cf CHECK hashes against list but only show failures -C <dir> Recursively CHECK directory against list of files on stdin -Cf <dir> Recursively CHECK directory against list but only show failures -m MATCH files from a list read from stdin. -lm Read hashes from stdin, upload them to a memcached server (requires the -memcached option). -memcached <server> Specify memcached server. (Overrides reading list from stdin if used with -m, -c or -cf). -mcd <server> Specify memcached server. (Overrides reading list from stdin if used with -m, -c or -cf). -h <script> Script to run when a file fails CHECK mode, or is found in MATCH mode. -hook <script> Script to run when a file fails CHECK mode, or is found in FIND mode -color Use ANSI color codes on output when checking hashes. -strict Strict mode: when checking, check file mtime, owner, group, and inode as well as it's hash -S Strict mode: when checking, check file mtime, owner, group, and inode as well as it's hash -d dereference (follow) symlinks -fs Stay on one file system -dir DirMode: Read all files in directory and create one hash for them! -dirmode DirMode: Read all files in directory and create one hash for them! -devmode DevMode: read from a file EVEN OF IT'S A DEVNODE -lines Read lines from stdin and hash each line independently. -rawlines Read lines from stdin and hash each line independently, INCLUDING any trailing whitespace. (This is compatible with 'echo text | md5sum') -rl Read lines from stdin and hash each line independently, INCLUDING any trailing whitespace. (This is compatible with 'echo text | md5sum') -cgi Run in HTTP CGI mode -net Treat 'file' arguments as either ssh or http URLs, and pull files over the network and then hash them (Allows hashing of files on remote machines). URLs are in the format ssh://[username]:[password]@[host]:[port] or http://[username]:[password]@[host]:[port].. -idfile <path> Path to an ssh private key file to use to authenticate INSTEAD OF A PASSWORD when pulling files via ssh. -xattr Use eXtended file ATTRibutes. In hash mode, store hashes in the file attributes, in check mode compare against hashes stored in file attributes. -txattr Use TRUSTED eXtended file ATTRibutes. In hash mode, store hashes in 'trusted' file attributes. 'trusted' attributes can only be read and written by root. Under freebsd this menas SYSTEM attributes. -attrs comma-separated list of filesystem attribute names to be set to the value of the hash. -cache Use hashes stored in 'user' xattr if they're younger than the mtime of the file. This speeds up outputting hashes. -u <types> Update. In checking mode, update hashes for the files as you go. <types> is a comma-separated list of things to update, which can be 'xattr' 'memcached' or a file name. This will update these targets with the hash that was found at the time of checking. -hide-input When reading data from stdin in linemode, set the terminal to not echo characters, thus hiding typed input. -star-input When reading data from stdin in linemode replace characters with stars. -xsel Update X11 clipboard and primary selections to the current hash. This works using Xterm command sequences. The xterm resource 'allowWindowOps' must be set to 'true' for this to work. Hashrat can also detect if it's being run under any of the following names (e.g., via symlinks) md5sum run with '-trad -md5' shasum run with '-trad -sha1' sha1sum run with '-trad -sha1' sha256sum run with '-trad -sha256' sha512sum run with '-trad -sha512' jh224sum run with '-trad -jh224' jh256sum run with '-trad -jh256' jh384sum run with '-trad -jh384' jh512sum run with '-trad -jh512' whirlpoolsum run with '-trad -whirl' hashrat.cgi run in web-enabled 'cgi mode'
