            string salt = GetPasswordSha256Hash(login.ToUpper());
            return GetPasswordSha256Hash(password + salt);
        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;

Returned value

Type Description
