Disk image hardware—DCK now is equipped with MD5 Generator To Keep Data Integrity

 

The disk image hardware—data copy king now has been equipped with MD5 generator to keep data integrity. MD5 (Message-Digest algorithm 5) is a widely used cryptographic hash function with a 128-bit hash value. Specified in RFC 1321, MD5 has been employed in a wide variety of data security applications, and is also commonly used to check the data integrity of files. There is a very small possibility of getting two identical checksums of two different files.

 


With the MD5 generator, users can generate and clear the checksum value, and add log details such as case title, operator name as well as case description of the file. This feature of or disk image hardware can be useful both for comparing the files and data integrity control. Meanwhile users can save and print the generated log on the fly.

Let us imagine a situation that will help you to understand how the checksum works. You have an important file which was saved in your computer, however, you want to make sure whether it wasn’t tampered or modified by any possible factors in a few days or months; then how do you know they have been changed or not. Therefore you can use our disk image hardware along with the MD5 generator to generate a checksum value periodically and compare the md5 checksum values generated in different time to check the data integrity.


1. Choose the file and generate MD5 checksum value

2. Add details of the checksum log

3. The generated log

Our disk image hardware users may go to our forum to download the MD5 generator and enjoy the new function. And we make a video later to show you how to operate on the MD5 generator.
