GtkHash is a desktop utility for computing message digests or checksums. Most well-known hash functions are supported, including MD5, SHA1, SHA2 (SHA256/SHA512), SHA3 and BLAKE2.
It's designed to be an easy to use, graphical alternative to command-line tools such as md5sum.
Some interesting features:
- Support for verifying checksum files from sfv, sha256sum, etc.
- Keyed hashing (HMAC)
- Parallel/threaded hash calculation
- Remote file access using GIO/GVfs
- File manager integration
- Small and fast, written in C
- GTK+ 3 or 2
- Libgcrypt (default)
- libb2 (default)
- mbed TLS
- Linux Kernel Crypto (
GtkHash will attempt to select the best available implementation of each hash function based on its performance, but this can differ wildly between library versions and CPU architectures.
./configure --help for a full list of options. Dependencies are not
detected implicitly or "automagically".
