The following code demonstrates using SHA1 algorithm to hash a password

The following code demonstrates using SHA1 algorithm to hash a password:

In VB:
Imports System.Security.Cryptography 
Public Function ComputeSHA1(ByVal textToHash As String) As String 
    Dim SHA1 As SHA1CryptoServiceProvider = New SHA1CryptoServiceProvider 
    Dim byteV As Byte() = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(textToHash) 
    Dim byteH As Byte() = SHA1.ComputeHash(byteV) 
    Return Convert.ToBase64String(byteH) 
End Function 

In C#:
using System.Security.Cryptography; 
public static String ComputeSHA1(string textToHash) 
    SHA1CryptoServiceProvider SHA1 = new SHA1CryptoServiceProvider(); 
    byte[] byteV = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(textToHash); 
    byte[] byteH = SHA1.ComputeHash(byteV); 
    return Convert.ToBase64String(byteH);
