MD5CryptoServiceProvider Class

Definition

Computes the MD5 hash value for the input data using the implementation provided by the cryptographic service provider (CSP). This class cannot be inherited.

Remarks

Hash functions map binary strings of an arbitrary length to small binary strings of a fixed length. A cryptographic hash function has the property that it is computationally infeasible to find two distinct inputs that hash to the same value; that is, hashes of two sets of data should match if the corresponding data also matches. Small changes to the data result in large, unpredictable changes in the hash.

Note

Newer hash functions such as the Secure Hash Algorithms SHA-256 and SHA-512 are available. Consider using the SHA256 class or the SHA512 class instead of the MD5CryptoServiceProvider class. Use MD5CryptoServiceProvider only for compatibility with legacy applications and data.

The hash size for the MD5CryptoServiceProvider class is 128 bits.

The ComputeHash methods of the MD5CryptoServiceProvider class return the hash as an array of 16 bytes. Note that some MD5 implementations produce a 32-character, hexadecimal-formatted hash. To interoperate with such implementations, format the return value of the ComputeHash methods as a hexadecimal value.
