Salt and Password Hash
The form below will generate derived passwords using a specified hostname and secret. The hostname will be converted to lowercase, then combined with the secret, and then hashed with the SHA1 hashing algorithm and then encoded in MIME Base64 to produce a derived password. A user who knows the derived password and the hostname will be unable to determine the secret and thus unable to derive additional passwords from the known password.
To use this form:
- Enter the system's hostname in the field marked "Hostname"
- Enter the common secret into the field marked "Secret"
- Press the "Compute" button
