Please see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sha-3 I've talked to Joan Daemen (AES), his team has the Keccak hash function as one of the 5 finalists in the NIST competition for SHA-3. I'm hoping to have him at Passwords^12 in December, independent of who wins the competition. NIST will announce a winner sometime this year, and it might happen during summer. So for the obvious question; any thoughts on implementing support for all finalists, eventually prepare for implementing support for the winner? After all we can expect a pretty wide deployment of it during the next couple of years. :-) -- Best regards, Per Thorsheim CISA, CISM, CISSP-ISSAP securitynirvana.blogspot.com Download attachment "signature.asc" of type "application/pgp-signature" (199 bytes)
