Password Hashes Web Tool

Today I've created tool to generate and/or validate different password hashes

For security reasons, you may want to store passwords in hashed form. This guards against the possibility that someone who gains unauthorized access to the database can retrieve the passwords of every user in the system. Hashing performs a one-way transformation on a password, turning the password into another String, called the hashed password. "One-way" means that it is practically impossible to go the other way - to turn the hashed password back into the original password. There are several mathematically complex hashing algorithms that fulfill these needs.
