Re: hash function for creating an activation code



Hi,

what about MD5? It's as secure as the rest of your method ;) ....

Honestly, you can as well remove the activation from your program if you
just use a scheme as simple as this.

Cheers,
Nik

hi
I want to create a license file for my program
I have created a function that extract unique hex number of each network
adapters of host computer
When activation wizard starts, this unique number has been sent to a server
as a request code. Now i need a hash function that mix this number with a
user name and return a new code as an activation code to user.
So please suggest a hash function
request code is a string like this:
