MD5 hash calculator
What is MD5?
The MD5 (Message-Digest Algorithm) is crypthographic hash function that generates a 128-bit hash value. MD5 is used in to check data integrity and in security applications. In other words MD5 checksum is like a fingerprint of the file. There is a very small possibility that two identical MD5 hash values are generated of two different files. That is way MD5 hashes have a lot of uses, some of which are: detecting data changes, storing or generating strong passwords, making unique keys in databases and ensuring message integrity.
The MD5 algorithm is designed to be quite fast on 32-bit machines. In addition, the MD5 algorithm does not require any large substitution tables; the algorithm can be coded quite compactly.
With this MD5 hash calculator you can easily calculate MD5 hashes online.
