Python 3 Script to Calculate SHA256 Hash of Input Python File Using hashlib

# Python program to find SHA256 hash string of a file
import hashlib
 
filename = input("Enter the input file name: ")
sha256_hash = hashlib.sha256()
with open(filename,"rb") as f:
    # Read and update hash string value in blocks of 4K
    for byte_block in iter(lambda: f.read(4096),b""):
        sha256_hash.update(byte_block)
    print(sha256_hash.hexdigest())
