In this paper, we summarize the results achieved during our brief three months long research on collisions of the MD5 hash function. Being inspired by the results announced by Wang et al. [1] we independently developed methods for finding collisions which work for any initialization value and which are quicker than the methods presented in [1, 8]. It enables us to find a MD5 collision on a standard notebook PC roughly in 8 hours [7]. Independently on [1, 8], we discovered and propose several… 
Tunnels in Hash Functions: MD5 Collisions Within a Minute
Several tunnels in hash function MD5 are described, which decrease the average time of MD5 collision to 31 seconds, which can be used for finding collisions of other hash functions, such as SHA-1, 2.
Improved Collision Attack on MD5
This attack is the improved version of the attack which was invented by Xiaoyun Wang et al and was able to find collisions with probability almost 1, and the average complexity to find a collision is upper bounded by three times of MD4 hash operations.
Collision-Resistant Usage of MD5 and SHA-1 Via Message Preprocessing
Several simple message pre-processing techniques are presented and it is shown how the techniques can be combined with MD5 or SHA-1 so that applications are no longer vulnerable to the known collision attacks.

A Study of the MD5 Attacks: Insights and Improvements
A study of all attacks on MD5 starting from Wang, which explains the techniques used by her team, insights on how to improve these techniques, and uses these insights to produce an even faster attack onMD5.
Automatic Search of Differential Path in MD4
This paper obtains new differential paths for MD4, which improve upon previously known MD4 differential paths, and could be used to find new differentialpaths, and to build new attacks against MD4.
New Message Differences for Collision Attacks on MD4 and MD5
This paper proposes new message differences for collision attacks on MD4 and MD5 that can generate a collision with complexity of less than two MD4 computations, which is faster than the original Wang et al.'s attack, and moreover, than the all previous attacks.
A new one-bit difference collision attack on HAVAL-128
A new fast attack on HAVAL-128 is given, which includes many present methods of constructing hash collisions and proposes a new difference path different from the previous ones, and uses four tricks of message modification to improve the probability of collision.


Collisions for Hash Functions MD4, MD5, HAVAL-128 and RIPEMD
In 1993 Bert den Boer and Antoon Bosselaers found pseudo-collision for MD5 which is made of the same message with two different sets of initial value.
Finding MD5 Collisions - a Toy For a Notebook
In this short memo, the results achieved during a two and half months long research on the discovery of collisions for a set of hash functions (MD4, MD5, HAVAL-128, RIPEMD) are summarized.
Musings on the Wang et al. MD5 Collision
Examination of the internal differences and conditions required for the attack to be successful suggests that an attacker cannot cause such collisions for HMAC-MD5 with complexity less than generic attacks.
How to Break MD5 and Other Hash Functions
A new powerful attack on MD5 is presented, which unlike most differential attacks, does not use the exclusive-or as a measure of difference, but instead uses modular integer subtraction as the measure.
Practical Attacks on Digital Signatures Using MD5 Message Digest
We use the knowledge of the single MD5 collision published by Wang et al. (2) to show an example of a pair of binary self-extract packages with equal MD5 checksums, whereas resulting extracted
