The First Public DES Collision

This is the first publicly known DES crypt() hashing algorithm collision 05/Nov/2010.


A collision occurs when two different plaintexts encrypted produce the same hash string. It was discovered by a student James M. Hall on a single CPU thread overnight
to prove that we should move away from this hashing algorithm if not already to one that is salted, heavily iterated and has a larger keyspace such as SHA-512(Unix).
