C# Hash SHA512 Simple Dirty

protected string MyHash(string fromthis)


string thishash = "";

using (SHA512 mysham = SHA512.Create())


byte[] mybytes = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(fromthis);

thishash = Convert.ToBase64String(mysham.ComputeHash(mybytes));

thishash = thishash.Replace("=", "");


return thishash;


It's not clever. It's not salted. For real thorough password storage you'd be wanting to sprinkle some salt in with this lot. Buuuut. It's a hand way to get a random string.
