Abstract

In Eurocrypt 2005, Wang et al. presented an exciting paper that showcased her method of breaking MD5 by attacking its collision resistance propery. However, Wang's paper does not give a thorough exposition of the attack and much of their techniques are shrouded in mystery. This paper attempts to explain Wang's attack on MD5 in greater detail by consolidating the various expository works on the subject.
