Hacking is not only a mysterious but also a stylish thing to do for most computer enthusiasts. It involves taking advantage of any loopholes in the system to get unauthorized access to someone else’s data. These days, the Internet is used by almost everyone for a variety of purposes. Everyone has his own data that can be misused if it reaches the wrong people. We all must try to keep our privacy intact and also try to share only what is required and safe to share.
There are so many cases when people casually share their plans or any other private information on social networking websites and then face security challenges because of it. There has to be security precautions implemented at the personal level as well as at the network level. Imagine an open network where everyone can access everything. This way, any communication you send through Internet or any other network of computer goes public. Since this is not the scenario we need, there are many ways to protect the data and make it available only to its intended recipients.
To accomplish privacy between communications, the information to be sent is encrypted at the sender’s end, transmitted through the network and decrypted at the receiver’s end. Since the information travelling through the network is encrypted by a secret algorithm, it would not make any sense to anyone who does not know how to decrypt it. Though there are many other ways to protect information, encryption surely adds to the security to the data transmitted.
There are many algorithms like MD5 that are used to encrypt information properly. There is a unique combination that is used to encrypt and decrypt information so no one other than the parties involved in the communication can make use of the data transmitted. In this algorithm, a hash value is calculated and added to the message itself. So even though the medium of transfer might be insecure, the data can be transmitted securely through it.
MD5 Decrypter is used to convert the data back into meaningful information. It is very difficult to decrypt data that has been encrypted through this algorithm. It was claimed that the hash values created by the encryption algorithm can never be same. Though later on some loopholes were found in the algorithm, and an improved version called SHA was introduced. This algorithm is a good option to validate the integrity of the information till date.
