MD5 Collision Vulnerability: Generating Identical Hash Values From Two Different Computer Programs

Merkle-Damgård Construction

Abstract A common theme for cryptographic hashing algorithms is for them to be created, used, and trusted until a flaw is found, rendering the algorithm no longer cryptographically secure [1]. When such instances occur, many times the deprecated algorithm tends to still be in use, posing a significant security flaw …
