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
