I am using as3corelib's MD5 has function from adobe.
I am hashing a 3mb file, this is taking around 6 seconds on decent hardware.
I must find a much faster way of creating a hash.
Am I correct in assuming that its slow because its running inside the actionscript virtual machine?
Do any ways exist to speed it up?
I am really looking for minimum possible security and so if some more simple hash method exists and was faster this may be a solution.
