### Computed SHA-1 Result

### What is This Tool?

This tool takes any string as an input and runs it through the SHA-1 compression algorithm, which was first published in 1995. The SHA-1 cryptographic hash algorithm will provide a 160-bit (20 bytes) key that can not be accurately decrypted if the original string contained more than 20 bytes. This algorithm is perfect for validating a known plain-text against an encrypted key.
