Hashing is a method for reducing large inputs to a smaller fixed size output. When doing forensics, typically cryptographic hashing algorithms like MD5 and SHA-1 are used. These functions have a few properties useful to forensics. Other types of hashing, such as Context Triggered Piecewise Hashing can also be used.

Tools

There are literally hundreds of hashing programs out there, but a few related to forensics are:
