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.


  • Support for verifying checksum files from sfv, sha256sum, etc.
  • Keyed hashing (HMAC)
  • Parallel/multi-threaded hash calculation
  • Remote file access using GIO/GVfs
  • File manager integration
  • Small and fast
