Hey guys I am trying to generate a random six digit number and am

wondering what options do I have. MD5 and SHa-1 are some just some

ways to do it. but nevertheless, I am curious on other ideas...alas if

the output is a six digit decimal then its not very secure. Any brute

force attack code crack it.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks,

Hey thanks for your advice. I am pretty to all this security stuff and

I have to come up with a random six digit SPC code (mobil phones).

Any guides or direction in coming up with the algorithm would be most

appreciated.

So, any useful links and tests would be helpful as well

thanks,
