"With password hashes, every time you use the words "decrypting", "dehashing", or "reversing"… you are propagating a fundamental
misconception of how hashing works. This can confuse noobs for *years*. Stop.

You mean either "cracking" or "hash lookup": https://www.techsolvency.com/passwords/dehashing-reversing-decrypting/"

Yes, I agree!


+rep if I helped, thanks. Means a lot when I'm using power in China to crack hashes!

I prefer "Reverse Hash lookup".

You can only lookup if you have dictionary of previous hashes
How does this suggestion embrace brute force discovery of hash?

For non-bijective functions, there is no way to define an inverse function.

But even, for non-bijective function, you can have something like a pseudo-inverse.
An epsilon-inverse, or just get inverses over a subset.
