Regarding the .NET example for the ANS verification, the use of FormsAuthentication.HashPasswordForStoringInConfigFile() is somewhat unorthodox but it's a single call and it works. For an alternative I offer the following:

string calcHash;
System.Security.Cryptography.SHA1Managed hashAlgorithm = new System.Security.Cryptography.SHA1Managed();
System.Text.ASCIIEncoding encoder = new System.Text.ASCIIEncoding();
byte[] bytes = encoder.GetBytes(Request.Url.Query.Remove(0,1) + saltCode);
bytes = hashAlgorithm.ComputeHash(bytes);
calcHash = BitConverter.ToString(bytes).Replace("-","").ToLowerInvariant();
