package md4

import ""

Package md4 implements the MD4 hash algorithm as defined in RFC 1320.

Deprecated: MD4 is cryptographically broken and should should only be used where compatibility with legacy systems, not security, is the goal. Instead, use a secure hash like SHA-256 (from crypto/sha256).
