CS 305 SNHU Hash Value for Text String by Executing the Java Code Program Overview The cryptographic hash function has great utility for sharing information. In a commercial environment where the organization needs to distribute programs or documentation to customers, the organization can use the hash value to ensure the customer receives unaltered information. The common term for producing a hash value for a data file is a checksum. Producing a checksum for files that customers will download allows your customers to check for transmission errors and prevents an attacker from disguising a malicious file as your original file. To do this, you will need to produce a cryptographic hash function that is not susceptible to collisions. For example, certain older algorithm ciphers have been found to be “hackable”; that is, a hacker can produce a checksum for a malicious version of a file that equates to the same checksum…    read more
