Hi all...
I'm new to programing and encryptation...
I need to encrypt the contend of a file, i had a look on the net and found 2 functions:
1° Uses RijndaelManaged, SHA512, with password, salt, hash
2° Uses RijndaelManaged, MD5CryptoServiceProvider with password

What I have tried:

Mi question is if i encrypt the contends of the file with the first one, then convert encrypted to Hexadecimal and encrypt again with the second one will it be easy to crack it?
I dont know if it makes sence or if i m saying it something realy stupid but...

Thanks in advance

SHA512 and MD5 are not encryption algorithms, they are hash algorithms, it is not the same thing.
SHA-2 - Wikipedia[^]
MD5 - Wikipedia[^]

Looks like your keyboard had a funny five minutes. I've corrected the two typos. :)
