MD5Init module implements the RSA Data
Security, Inc. MD5 Message-Digest Algorithm (MD5). It produces 128-bit MD5
Digest of data.
- must be called just before
MD5Transform() will be used to produce a digest. The buf argument is the storage for the digest being produced on subsequent calls to the
- is the core of the MD5 algorithm, this alters an existing MD5 hash kept in buf to reflect the addition of 16 longwords of new data passed in in argument.
The code for MD5 transform was taken from Colin Plumb's implementation, which has been placed in the public domain. The MD5 cryptographic checksum was devised by Ronald Rivest, and is documented in RFC 1321, "The MD5 Message Digest Algorithm".
