- Calculate md5 hash online from text: type or copy the text and click on “Calculate MD5”.
- Decipher md5 hashed password: type or copy the hex code in “MD5 Hash” and click on “Decipher”. This experimental feature is based on a database of most common used password.
The MD5 message-digest algorithm is a widely used cryptographic hash function producing a 128-bit (16-byte) hash value, typically expressed in text format as a 32 digit hexadecimal number. MD5 has been utilized in a wide variety of cryptographic applications, and is also commonly used to verify data integrity.
In 1996 a flaw was found in the design of MD5. While it was not deemed a fatal weakness at the time, cryptographers began recommending the use of other algorithms.
The security of the MD5 hash function is severely compromised. Hash and collision attacks have been demonstrated in the public in various situations.
