What is MD5 all about?
MD5 is a cryptographic hash function algorithm also known as “message-digest”. This contains a series of digits generated by a one-way hashing procedure. Message digests are specially designed to safeguard the integrity of a piece of information or media and to identify if there are changes and alterations to any part of a message.
Message digests are protected one-way hash functions that take random-sized data and produce a fixed-length hash value.
