But how secure is the web and the information content herein is a paramount issued to many such as organisations that uses the web for the entire college management. In other to strengthen the security of web usage, this paper discusses a comparative analysis of the various hash algorithms that could strengthen web service application such as MD-5, SHA-1, SHA-2, SHA-3 as well as SHA-192 in web security.
