Tool Description:

This visual tool generates the hashed password using either SHA1 or MD5 hashing algorithm depending on the choice you make. It will display the hashed password in the read only text box, it can also copy the hashed password to clipboard on your choice for easy paste operation.

Where do we need this:

Forms Authentication in ASP.net. I was working with Forms Authentication mechanism provided with ASP.Net. My users were limited, so I decided to have the user name and password combinations in the web.config file which will support passwords in clear text and hashed. Obviously my decision was for hashed passwords. I searched for the tool to generate hashed passwords but search resulted in void, so this tool born.

You might find other places of need also.
