    Cool MD5 Encrypting easily in VB.net

    Hey guys,

    im just releasing my new MD5 Encrypting Function to make it easier getting a MD5 String.

    Code:

    PHP Code:
        Public Function MD5StringHash(ByVal strString As String) As String
            Dim MD5 
    As New MD5CryptoServiceProvider
            Dim Data 
    As Byte()
            
    Dim Result As Byte()
            
    Dim Res As String ""
            
    Dim Tmp As String ""

            
    Data Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(strString)
            
    Result MD5.ComputeHash(Data)
            For 
    As Integer 0 To Result.Length 1
                Tmp 
    Hex(Result(i))
                If 
    Len(Tmp) = 1 Then Tmp "0" Tmp
                Res 
    += Tmp
            Next
            
    Return Res
        End 
    Function 
    Have Fun,
    greets jstyler.

    This is not encrypting

    Just to clarify for anyone who ever views this thread. This is NOT encrypting. This is hashing.

    Here's the difference:
    - Hashing algorithms are one way functions that are designed to be irreversible. Hashes act as signatures/verification methods. MD5, due to security flaws, is now more suited as a checksum function rather than securely storing data for verification.
    - Encrypting is the act of applying some reversible algorithm to data. An encryption is used to store/transmit data securely. It is different than a hash because it is designed to be reversed back to plaintext using a key and, if necessary, an initialization vector (I.V.).

    My point: Don't use this for storing data if you want to see that data again. Don't use this for storing/generating passwords because it's not secure. Don't use this for authentication.
