MD5 – Message-Digest Algorithm

The MD5 hashing algorithm is a one-way cryptographic function that accepts a message of any length as input and returns as output a fixed-length encrypted value further used for authentication. As it is hash function so it is irreversible. MD5 hash function is severely compromised, MD5 is not collision-resistant. The weaknesses of MD5 have been exploited in the field, most infamously by the Flame malware … Continue reading MD5 – Message-Digest Algorithm

Basic of Cryptography – Part I

Cryptograph means secret writing, in order to make information secret we use cipher, an algorithm that converts plain text to cipher-text. Cipher has been used long before computer existance. In 44 BC Julius Caesar uses the technique now called Caeser Cipher to send message. He used to shfit the letter by 3 character.  Another great example from history, Nazis Enigma Machine used during war to translate message. … Continue reading Basic of Cryptography – Part I
