Does anyone know if it is possible to calculate SHA-3 in power shell 5.0 ?

If it is not the case are there any open source 3rd party software i can use ?

    .Net Framework does not have a SHA-3 class, so Powershell, does not have it. As for theirs-party software, that might exist, it wouldn't be on topic for me recommend one so find them yourself – Ramhound Jun 4 '16 at 15:09
  • A google search returns Use PowerShell To Calculate the Hash of a File: MD5 SHA1 SHA256 SHA384 SHA512 RIPEM160 – DavidPostill Jun 4 '16 at 15:11
  • Thanks for the comments Ramhound and DavidPostill , i think i will use Crypto-JS library instead Since the .net Framework does not have the SHA-3 Class : stackoverflow.com/questions/30109958/… . – user601379 Jun 4 '16 at 18:24

    @FouadMaidine, don't forget that it's trivial to call .NET libraries from PowerShell, so if you can find a third party .NET library out there that does SHA-3, then you could use that. – dangph Jun 6 '16 at 1:28
