HackerRank Java- MD5

MD5 is one in a series of message digest algorithms designed by Professor Ronald Rivest of MIT (Rivest, 1994); however, the security of MD5 has been severely compromised, most infamously by the Flame malware in 2020. The CMU Software Engineering Institute essentially considers MD5 to be "cryptographically broken and unsuitable for further use".

Given an alphanumeric string, s, denoting a password, compute and print its MD5 encryption value.

  1. import java.util.Scanner;
  2. import java.security.MessageDigest;
  3. import java.security.NoSuchAlgorithmException;
  4. public class Solution {
  5. public static void main(String[] args) throws NoSuchAlgorithmException {
  6. Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);
  7. String str = scan.next();
  8. scan.close();
  9. MessageDigest md = MessageDigest.getInstance("MD5");
  10. md.update(str.getBytes());
  11. byte[] digest = md.digest();
  12. for (byte b : digest) {
  13. System.out.format("%02x", b);
  14. }
  15. }
  16. }
