# Italian verb for "to hash" in computer?

I'm looking for a single verb that translates *to hash* in the context of computers. Eg.> Passwords in the database are **hashed** with SHA256that translated is something like> Le password nel database sono _____ con SHA256Some verbs I was thinking about, but don't really fit: - criptate (encrypted) I think this is more a two-way function, crypted text can be decripted, but hashed text cannot. - offuscate (obfuscated) This is something hidden, but as above can be made clear - oscurate (darkened) Maybe this is the best choice even if it's very similar to offuscate - **Edit:** also cifrate. But isn't this the same as criptate?
