I came across some source code that loosely does the below in order to achieve a 32 bit hash. The input string is passed through MD5 to get 16 bytes Hash (as usual). Then the 16 bytes are split into ...
Suppose Alice is using a password prompt that only accepts up to 32 characters for any particular password. Memorization of long strings of random characters is not one of Alice's strengths, so she ...
I'm reading the paper "Message Freedom in MD4 and MD5 Collisions: Application to APOP" about finding collisions for the MD5 hash algorithm involving the concept of tunnels as described in "Tunnels in ...
Is there an example of two known strings which have the same MD5 hash value (representing a so-called "MD5 collision")?
Is the last step of an iterated cryptographic hash still as resistant to preimage attacks as the original hash?
Considering a cryptographic hash, such as MD5 or SHA2, denoted by the function $H(m)$ where $m$ is an arbitrary binary string, there is a lot of material available that deals with potential weakness ...
It is well known that MD5 is completely broken today - however, to understand the theory behind the attacks I am looking for an implementation of the collision attacks described in the 2009 paper A ...
