    Smile MD4 digest calculation


    i hv a hex 0x53006500630052004500740030003100

    and according to wikipedia MD4 digest of this is: 0xcd06ca7c7e10c99b1d33b7485a2ed808

    Can any one explain how they are calculating this digest....i tried some online tool to calculate MD4 digest but i didnt get the answer....i also tried openssl dgst -md4 command in linux but still it is ambigious....and one more thing is if u r calculating digest using any online tool then the digest would be different then the linux digest.....i'll really appriate any reply

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Applying MD4 digest to a specific set of bytes should always produce the same results since it is basically computing a checksum. The algorithm for md4 digest calculation is pubicly available, and compliant implementations will always generate the same results when operating on the same data set. Any changes in the data at all will result in a different digest result.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
