MD5
Cryptographic Library for Lua

Overview

MD5 offers basic cryptographic facilities for Lua 5.1: a hash (digest) function, a pair crypt/decrypt based on MD5 and CFB, and a pair crypt/decrypt based on DES with 56-bit keys.

MD5 is free software and uses the same license as Lua.

Status

MD5 version 1.1.2 for Lua 5.1 is now available for download.

Download

MD5 can be downloaded in source code from its LuaForge page. If you are using LuaBinaries 5.1.x, a Windows precompiled version of MD5 can also be found at the same LuaForge page.

You can also install MD5 using LuaRocks:

luarocks install md5

Credits

This Lua version of MD5 was designed and implemented by Roberto Ierusalimschy and Marcela Ozório Suarez (based on the original MD5 by Ron Rivest). The DES 56 C library was implemented by Stuart Levy and uses a MIT license too. The current distribution was packed by Tomás Guisasola and Fábio Mascarenhas as part of the Kepler Project.
