MicroID Generator

Feel free to use this generator, which uses the Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA-1) to create a portable identity token called a microID.

This version of the microID generator creates a string with the following pattern:

emailscheme+urlscheme:sha1:hash

where emailscheme in this case is "mailto" and the urlscheme is one of "http" or "https". The hexadecimal hash string is generated as follows:

sha-1( sha-1(emailaddress) + sha-1(URL) )

The microID can be used as an HTML element class, e.g:

<p class="'microid-microID goes here">some text</p> (note the microid- prefix)

Or it can be used as an HTML metadata header, e.g:

<meta name="microid" content="microID goes here" />
