Python3 script to receive input text and change it to sha256 hashing text. Usually we can use it to create password and store it in database.
import hashlib strPassword = input("Enter the password: ") hash_object = hashlib.sha256(strPassword.encode()) print(hash_object.hexdigest())
A note for hexdigest() command, it means that the hash_object is printed in hex/ printable letter format. Otherwise it will result like this “<sha256 HASH object @ 0x7f8db1acddb0>
There are many hashing type we can use beside sha256 like md5, sha512, sha224.
