your credit cards you carry around? the PIN number isn't stored on the card - but an MD5 hash of the PIN number *is* stored on the card (making replay attacks possible, believe it or not).

I sure as hell hope not! If that was the case, anyone with a card reader could brute-force your PIN in under a second by taking the MD5 hash of all 4 digit numbers, and comparing them to be hash that is supposedly on the card.
