There are no plans to change the hashing algorithm in Swift. Swift does not use md5 for cryptographic security. In the case you are looking at, the problem to solve is only to ensure that the bits on disk and the bits transferred on the network are correct. In that case, md5 is quite sufficient and has the added benefits of being both widely available and fast enough.
