Cryptography Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for software developers, mathematicians and others interested in cryptography. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am making a script in Windows batch to have a registration and login system that stores the passwords in a SQL database using SQLite. I need a command line MD5 encryption program to encrypt the passwords (like the md5 function in PHP) but all I can find is programs to checksum files.

Does anyone know where I can find one or at least tell me a good encryption program?

What would "MD5 encryption" be? MD5 hashing is well-known (and usually not good enough). – Ricky Demer Mar 10 '12 at 10:41
It sounds like you are trying to implement a security mechanism that you do not understand. That's really not a good plan. You don't even seem to understand that this has nothing to do with encrypting anything. – David Schwartz Mar 10 '12 at 10:53
This is off topic, as the question asks for an executable program for Windows Cmd.exe. Encryption is poor terminology for a hash. For secure password storage, PBKDF2 or better Scrypt should be used, rather than a hash. – fgrieu Mar 10 '12 at 11:43
The best place for this sort of question is super user - I'd move it over there but they already have a question that might help. If it doesn't, I can always migrate this one; however, they may close it there. Feel free to respond in comments if you need migration :) – user46 Mar 10 '12 at 14:37
