Hash: SHA512

Thoughts? It wasn't the algorithm I had anticipated, but does anyone
really anticipate this seeing any wide spread adoption without a huge
delay in between?

Dear all,



The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) today
announced the winner of its five-year competition to select a new
cryptographic hash algorithm, one of the fundamental tools of modern
information security.

The winning algorithm, Keccak (pronounced “catch-ack”), was created by
Guido Bertoni, Joan Daemen and Gilles Van Assche of STMicroelectronics
and Michaël Peeters of NXP Semiconductors. The team’s entry beat out 63
other submissions that NIST received after its open call for candidate
algorithms in 2007, when it was thought that SHA-2, the standard secure
hash algorithm, might be threatened. Keccak will now become NIST’s SHA-3
hash algorithm.
