Online MD5, MD4, MD2 Hash Calculator
Paste plain-text data into the below textarea or upload a file up to 10MB. Choose the mode and/or version and click the Calculate button. The resulting hashes will be shown in both hexadecimal and Base64 encoded format
If you encounter any errors with this tool attaching the file that causes problems.
You can create a handy link matching the current conversion operation (or the reverse equivalent if available).
Clicking the below buttons will generate the version that siutes you most and copy it to the clipboard.
The MD5 message-digest algorithm takes as input a message of arbitrary length and produces as output a 128-bit "fingerprint" or "message digest" of the input. It is conjectured that it is computationally infeasible to produce two messages having the same message digest, or to produce any message having a given prespecified target message digest. The MD5 algorithm is intended for digital signature applications, where a large file must be "compressed" in a secure manner before being encrypted with a private (secret) key under a public-key cryptosystem such as RSA.
The MD5 algorithm is an extension of the MD4 message-digest algorithm. MD5 is slightly slower than MD4, but is more "conservative" in design. MD5 was designed because it was felt that MD4 was perhaps being adopted for use more quickly than justified by the existing critical review; because MD4 was designed to be exceptionally fast, it is "at the edge" in terms of risking successful cryptanalytic attack. MD5 backs off a bit, giving up a little in speed for a much greater likelihood of ultimate security.
