Overview 📖

The Message Digest (MDG) is an implementation of the MD5 cryptographic hash function. It provides a struct, MD5, that can generate a message digest of data in a secure, one-way hash. The message digest can verify the integrity of the data without having to store the entire message.

Features ✨

The MD5 struct has a variety of functions to make it easy to use. The new function creates a new instance of the struct, ready to hash data. The transform function updates the struct 's internal state with new data, and the finalize function finishes the message digest and returns it.

  • An MD5 struct that represents the current state of the hash computation.
  • A new() method to create a new instance of the struct.
  • A transform() method to update the internal state with new data.
  • A finalize() method to finalize the hash computation and return the result as a 16-byte array.

Installation đŸ“Ļ

It takes just a few minutes to get up and running with mdg.


mdg requires Rust 1.67.0 or later.


ℹī¸ Info: Please check out our website for more information and find our documentation on, and

Usage 📖

To use mdg in your project, add the following to your Cargo.toml file:

mdg = "0.0.1"

Add the following to your file:

extern crate mdg;
use mdg::*;

then you can use the functions in your application code.


MDG comes with a set of examples that you can use to get started. The examples are located in the examples directory of the project. To run the examples, clone the repository and run the following command in your terminal from the project root directory.

cargo run --example mdg
