Text & File Hash Values


There is a need to verify messages.  Emails can be from anywhere and always have the possibility of having the wording changed.  It is therefore useful to send the hash value of a message by another means such as fax or telephone.

Files can be changed by trojans, viruses, human error, disk drive error or operating system error.  Files can only be stored on SSD, hard disk, USB drive, CDROM or DVD.  The hash of the file can be stored on paper copy and files away thus preserving some means of verifying a file has not changed.
