In cryptography, MD5 (abbreviation for Message-Digest Algorithm 5) is a widely used 128-bit cryptographic reduction algorithm.
It was designed by Ronald Rivest from MIT in 1991 to replace MD4 because of the weaknesses discovered by Hans Dobbertin. Despite its wide spread, MD5 has some known weaknesses.
Due to these possible weaknesses, we DO NOT use the MD5 hash to encrypt your password. To avoid common weaknesses, our patented procedures are designed to provide you and all our valued customers with the peace of mind that comes with our next-generation security deployment.
