The Hash Calc lab teaches you what information is gained from using Hash Calculators to analyze files within a directory, or specifically targeted files. For example, the output of the Hash Calc tool includes the message digest about the target as well as all its relevant integrity algorithms. The lab also discloses several integrity algorithms not output from the Hash Calc tool that provide a wider range of output datasets. Used in conjunction with the Hash My Files, and Advanced Encryption Package tool Hash Calc can be a very revealing "go-to" suite of resources for cryptographic analysis.
