Hi,
I've been looking for some decent encryption algorithms for a while now, and haven't been remotely successful. I'm looking for MD5, RC4 or RC5, and SHA algorithms which I can implement into Java code. It's for a school project I'm working on, and I really don't know where else to look.. Google hasn't been to me for once.
Does anybody know where I can find such algorithms or know where I can get Java implementations of those? (or any other popular encryption algorithms I may have missed?)
I would even appreciated it if someone just pointed me in the right direction, 'cause I'm completely lost right now.
Thanks in advance.

There have been many conversations about encryption algorithms in this forum. Have you tried searching here?

If you have a Safari subscription at O'Reilly, check out "Java Cryptography" or see if you can find the book somewhere. It's an older book and you might be able to pick it up used somewhere for a cheap price.
It's still pretty relevant. I'm surprised it hasn't been updated.
Also, check the Sun site for the JCE (Java Cryptography Extensions), there might be some basic examples over there.

Here's a recent Sun Tech Tip newsletter with some high level info about RSA: http://java.sun.com/developer/JDCTechTips/2004/tt0116.html
