MD5 Hash Generator is a simple way to generate MD5 message digest from a text input provided.
Where is MD5MD5 is a hash function that produces a 128-bit hash value. It was by Ronald Rivest in 1991 to replace an earlier hash function called MD4.
Although it was initially designed to be used as a cryptographic hash function, it is not recommended anymore to use for encryption as it has been found to suffer from extensive vulnerabilities and can be reversed by brute-force attack.
Despite its vulnerability, there are still good uses for MD5 like as checksum to verify data integrity. In this application, it is used to maintain the integrity of file(s) when it is send from a machine to another over a network.
