What does Hashing mean? A secure password hash is an encrypted sequence of characters obtained after applying certain algorithms and manipulations on user-provided password, which are generally very weak and easy to guess. Please remember that once this password hash is generated and stored in the database, you can not convert it back to the original password. MD5 hash in Python The MD5 message-digest algorithm is a widely used hash function producing a 128-bit hash value. Although MD5 was initially designed to be used as a cryptographic hash function, it has been found to suffer from extensive vulnerabilities. It can still be used as a checksum to verify data integrity, but only against unintentional corruption. It remains suitable for other non-cryptographic purposes, for example for determining the partition for a particular key in a partitioned database. Example: Python  - MD5  hashing Use hashlib.md5() method to generate an MD5 hash value from a String. # Python3 code to demonstra

What does Hashing mean? A secure password hash is an encrypted sequence of characters obtained after applying certain algorithms and manipulations on utilizer-provided passwords, which are generally very impotent and facile to conjecture. Please remember that once this password hash is engendered and stored in the database, you can not convert it back to the pristine password. Using MD5 algorithm The MD5 message-digest algorithm is a widely used hash function engendering a 128-bit hash value. Albeit MD5 was initially designed to be utilized as a cryptographic hash function, it has been found to suffer from extensive susceptibilities. It can still be utilized as a checksum to verify data integrity, but only against unintentional corruption. It remains felicitous for other non-cryptographic purposes, for example for determining the partition for a particular key in a partitioned database. Node.js MD5 Example: var crypto = require( 'crypto' ); var data = "Your Password"
