i want to learn about cryptography, i have read about public-key, digital signatures, md5, etc.
So something came up to my mind, how the cryptography works on a .rar file. Let's say i create a .txt file in blank, or maybe some random string in it and then i use winrar to compress the file and put a 3 letter password. If i want to go a little further, let's say, i don't know like 6 letter password with capital and lower case and maybe special characters too.
How can i figure out the hash the winrar used for the password or is there any way that i can crack this file?
Just for learning purposes, i want to learn how this thing works.
