2.1 Best Known Results

Here we summarize the best knonw (published) results.

2.2 Collection of Articles

  • Collision Attacks
    • Here I would list all papers that deal with SHA-1. We should also give the abstract and the bibtex entry for the corresponding paper. Additionall we should give our opinion about the attack described in the paper.

  • Second Preimage Attacks
    • There exists a generic attack (works for all iterated hash functions). See ....

  • Preimage Attacks
    • We are not aware of any article describing preimage attacks on SHA-1.

3 eHash Recommendation

Something like: SHA-1 is considered to be broken. Please do not incorporate SHA-1 in new application any longer. Try to migrate to another hash function.
