An In-Depth Study of Contemporary Hash Functions

The thesis covers an exhaustive study of selected contemporary hash functions, namely the potential candidates of the Advanced Hash Standard. Hash functions are the backbone of many cryptographic protocols and are used extensively for example for digital signatures. Thus, hash functions form an integral part of internet security, and need to be constructed very carefully. The thesis carries out a comprehensive study on the security and the efficiency of the candidate hash functions. The best comparative option will be reported.
