1 General Description

SHA-1 is an iterated hash function.

1.1 Compression Function

The compression function takes as input a 512-bit message block and a 160-bit chaining variable, and produces a 160-bit chaining value. The compression function is described as follows:

1.1.1 Message Expansion

1.1.2 State Update Transformation

WikiTeX: latex reported a failure, namely:

/data/www/ehash/html/extensions/wikitex/ line 59: latex: command not found

2 Claimed Security Margins

3 Security Anaylsis

  • Best know attack: <math>2^{63}</math> by Wang
  • Best known collision example: 64-step collision by De Canniere and Rechberger

something like: best know attack to date: kind of attack, which variant has been looked at (e.g. round-reduced), complexity, and reference to paper and abstract.

may be make here a new page with the other cryptanalysis results.
