MD5 - what's the alternativeby kiat (Vicar)
|on Aug 27, 2004 at 05:02 UTC||Need Help??|
kiat has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
In reference to the node On showing the weakness in the MD5 digest function and getting bitten by scalar context by grinder.
I'm using Digest::MD5 to generate unique cookie values as well as for password authentication.
Should I or should I not continue to use Digest::MD5 for those operations? What's the alternative?
Thanks in anticipation :)
