Hi,

I need to protect a sheet of passwords using SHA-256 Hashing, I have working macro scripts for MD5 and SHA-1, I would like to implement SHA-256 but can not find any macro code to achieve this.

' DESCRIPTION:
' This class is used to generate a SHA-256 'digest' or 'signature' of a string.
' The SHA-256 algorithm is one of the industry standard methods for generating
' digital signatures. It is generically known as a digest, digital signature,
' one-way encryption, hash or checksum algorithm. A common use for SHA-256 is
' for password encryption as it is one-way in nature, that does not mean that
' your passwords are not free from a dictionary attack. If you are using the
' routine for passwords, you can make it a little more secure by concatenating
' some known random characters to the password before you generate the signature
' and on subsequent tests, so even if a hacker knows you are using SHA-256 for
' your passwords, the random characters will make it harder to dictionary attack.
'
' *** CAUTION ***
' See the comment attached to the SHA256 method below regarding use on systems
' with different character sets.

Hi

Thank you for that, I imported into Excel as a class module, and tried to call the function sha256, which shows #REF ?

ah, so you're using it in a formula. Add this to a regular module:
Public Function SHA256Hash(strInput As String)
    Dim oSHA256 As CSHA256
    Set oSHA256 = New CSHA256

    SHA256Hash = oSHA256.SHA256(strInput)

    Set oSHA256 = Nothing
End Function

Open in new window


In a formula:
=SHA256Hash("Test")

Open in new window

or
=SHA256Hash(A1)

Open in new window
