The MD2 is a Message-Digest Algorithm. It is a cryptographic hash function developed by Ronald Rivest in 1989. It is optimized for 8-bit computers. The MD2 algorithm is used in public key infrastructures as part of certificates generated with MD2 and RSA. From 2014, this algorithm is now not considered as a secure algorithm.
To calculate cryptographic hashing value in Java, MessageDigest Class is used, under the package java.security.
MessagDigest Class provides following cryptographic hash function to find hash value of a text as follows:
These algorithms are initialized in static method called getInstance(). After selecting the algorithm the message digest value is calculated and the results are returned as a byte array. BigInteger class is used, to convert the resultant byte array into its signum representation. This representation is then converted into a hexadecimal format to get the expected MessageDigest.
