How to retrieve HASH from certificate in Windows:

First you need to have installed the JDK. After you have it installed you will have to open a command prompt.

After it you will need to navigate thru command line to the bin folder from you JDK installation. Example below, it may vary the version from the JDK and you will need to adjust accordingly.

I’ve generated an sample certificate and placed it at the root from the main disk drive (C:\) with the name┬áSignature.sign


cd Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.8.0_171\bin

keytool -list -v -keystore C:\Signature.sign -alias key -storepass 123456 -keypass 123456

Command syntax:

keytool -list -v -keystore PATH WITH FILE -alias PRIVATE KEY NAME -storepass SIGNATURE FILE PASSWORD -keypass PRIVATE KEY PASSWORD

For the example above considering that the first password is 123456 and the second 654321 and the key name is key the syntax would be:

keytool -list -v -keystore C:\Signature.sign -alias key -storepass 123456 -keypass 654321
