Tomorrow, October 4th at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear Orr
Dunkelman talk about:

      The Hitchhikers' Guide to the SHA-3 Competition


Following the advances in the cryptanalysis of hash functions in the
last years, and especially the alarming results on SHA1 and
Merkle-Damgard hash functions, NIST has started a cryptographic
competition to offer secure and fast hash function standard, to be
named SHA3. The competition, currently at its second phase (with 14
remaining candidates), is the focus of many efforts in cryptanalysis
and implementation.

In this talk, we shall cover some of the aspects of this competition,
starting from the reasons that led to it, through the first phase, the
14 candidates that were chosen for the second round, their status
(both security-wise and performance-wise), and of course, what is left
to be done, so the outcome of the process will be the best possible


We meet in Taub (CS Faculty) building, room 6. For instructions see:

Attendance is free, and you are all invited!


Future talks include:
