Securing a Client-Server Communication through Login Authentication Using Modified MD5
Abstract— The study was accomplished to secure a client-server communication through login authentication using modified md5. The modified MD5 which produces 1280-bit hash code length will be used to hash the password entered by the user in a login form and eventually store it in the system’s database. Findings affirmed that the modified algorithm was more secured compared to the original MD5 algorithm since it was not cracked using generic attacks such as dictionary, brute force and rainbow table and other cracking tools available online. The performance of the modified algorithm was measured with only 10.9 ms additional execution time from MD5.
