       private static string GetPasswordSha256Hash( string password )
           Encoding enc = Encoding.GetEncoding("UTF-16");
           byte[] buffer = enc.GetBytes(password);
           var cryptoTransformSHA256 = new SHA256CryptoServiceProvider();
           string hash = BitConverter.ToString(cryptoTransformSHA256.ComputeHash(buffer)).Replace("-", "");
           return hash;
