In this paper, advanced cryption using hash and random number generation has been proposed. It is aimed at providing a greater security for the hard disk access. Even though hard disks are more secure, still there is an urge to steal data from hard disks. Hence to authenticate the access, the authors can use the proposed system. A hash code is generated using SHA or MD5. The generated hash code is then concatenated with the random number generated using the random number generator algorithm.
