comment About performance of Smart card for performing 3DES in a MD5 hash
Why are you using MD5? MD5 is broken and should not be used. If it's imposed on you as an outside requirement, do what you have to. Otherwise, use SHA-2. If you're concerned about performance, can you use AES instead of 3DES? AES is faster.
