Your last paragraph on Authenticity sounds wrong and misleading. You're putting everything in the same bag. It would have been better to explain what HMAC is instead of comparing it to md5 which is a hashing function and provides absolutely no authenticity, only integrity.

Rework finished, hope that you will enjoy it!
