RC4-Hash  : A New Hash Function based on RC4

Dr. Mridul Nandi

Texto completo de la Conferencia   


In this talk, I would present a our new hash function called RC4-Hash which is based on popularly known RC4. This is the first hash function based on exchange shuffle mode. There are two reasons to do that. It has a potential efficiency and high security level. The second reason is that it has nice mathematical structure which has already been well studied.
This talk will be mainly based on basic idea on the design of hash functions and the our proposal. We briefly cover the security and performance of this new proposal.
