So i have some password hashes for example:
The input of the program is one of these hashed codes. What i need to do is use SHA-1 to get the original password and print it out to the user. I am really stuck, so far i have just declared all my password hashes as Strings. Is this right or should they be HexStrings ? Byte Arrays ? Char Arrays ? I am really not sure.
I have been on to the Wiki page for SHA-1 but i can't really see any formula's to calculate the password.
Am i also right in saying the format of these hashed passwords is hexadecimal ?
