MD2 hash calculator
What is MD2?
The MD2 Message-Digest Algorithm is a cryptographic hash function developed by Ronald Rivest in 1989. The algorithm is optimized for 8-bit computers. MD2 is specified in IETF RFC 1319. The “MD” in MD2 stands for “Message Digest”.
Even though MD2 is not yet fully compromised, IEFT retired MD2 to “historic” status in 2011, citing “signs of weakness”. It is deprecated in favor of SHA-256 and other strong hashing algorithms.
Nevertheless, as of 2014, it remained in use in public key infrastructures as part of certificates generated with MD2 and RSA.
