public final class MD5Digest
extends AbstractDigest
implements Digest

The MD5Digest class implements the Message Digest 5 (MD5) hash algorithm.

update

public void update(byte[] data,
                   int offset,
                   int length)
Description copied from interface: Digest
Passes a byte array of data, specified by the length and offset, into the hash algorithm.

getBlockLength

public int getBlockLength()
Description copied from interface: Digest
Returns the block length of the digest in bytes.

Most digest algorithms are iterated hash functions, and thus process the input data in blocks. Some primitives, like HMAC are sensitive to this block length.

                     boolean resetDigest)
Description copied from interface: Digest
Inserts the digest of all the input data since the last reset into the specified buffer at the given offset.
