More information:
This package contain ASP code for generating an MD5 'digest' or 'signature' of a string. The MD5 algorithm is one of the industry standard methods for generating digital signatures. It is generically known as a digest, digital signature, one-way encryption, hash or checksum algorithm. A common use for MD5 is for password encryption as it is one-way in nature.

The package contains two files, md5.asp and md5test.asp. The former contains the function for generating md5 signatures and is specified as an include file in md5test.asp.
