toString() method of java.security.MessageDigest
I'm coding some stuff I will have to live, I just got this to compile:
with the intent of something resembling Jesse Kornblum's md5-Deep. What I need to know is if this Message Digest to String looks like the Message Digest's we see for other work - i.e. colon separated string values looking to be something on the order of Character 0-9
String mad_dog = new java.lang.String(DIGEST_INPUT_STREAM.getMessageDigest().toString());
I do want to hear this ( ! )
Far from upsetting me, this is master work and I recognize it. The issue here is well known in the crypto stuff I have been able to find: When there are bucks or value on the line, no detail is too small - no concievable issue undeserving of examination. This is real and will go live tomorrow.
I intend to do preliminary testing today, the point of posting is that I have no other language in which I can do cross-testing, it may be that assistance in finding the rfc's for the matter - that is actually my goal in posting. Search engines are great but areas of specialization are often not brought to professional grade by certified workers.
What I did there was get to a clean compile after having coded some 300-400 lines of rather convoluted effort that is not finished, I put that up as the last thing hoping to find some good links. I need something that will stand up to counter-claim by baccalaureate cs, therefore it is needful that I ask.
