Thanks, I put the commands you provided in a shell and executed it.

I got the following error messages.


Quote:
cannot open converter
aa[7]: sha1sum: not found
Looks like sha1sum is not installed on our server.
Is it a free software or a licensed one?

iconv is installed on our server not sure, why I am getting error for "cannot open converter".

Appreciate help.

sha1sum is open-source and freely available. I thought it was part of openssl, but apparently it's in GNU Coreutils. It may also be available as part of busybox (which many Linux systems keep around for emergencies).

Try iconv -l to see what codes it can convert between.

You could also use openssl sha1 :

Code:
printf asdf                             |
        tr 'a-z' 'A-Z'                  | 
        iconv -f "UTF-8" -t "UTF-16LE"  |
        openssl sha1 -binary            |
        openssl base64
