Digital Signature (hash) algorithm needed.

684867684867 Posts: 110Member
I am working on a new programming language and paradigm. It is a component-based language which will add security to component software which COM obviously lacks.

In the course of my work I had settled on the need for a component identifier (which is sort of like the clsid and GUID) but more powerful and secure. This componentid is a digital signature for the component it represents.

Currently I need advice: Should I stay with the original MD5 algorithm I have been planning to use or switch to SHA-1? Is there another algorithm I should be looking at?
