Title: Problems and Progress with Cryptographic Hashing


The dramatic break of the Standard Hash Algorithm (SHA-1) motivates  us to 
replace that algorithm in many applications.  It also motivates  the 
re-consideration of the basic assumptions about these functions  and their 
uses (and misuses), which include digital signatures, key  derivation, 
message authentication, and commitment.  While collision- resistant hashes 
are required for digital signatures, recent and  ongoing work has 
identified alternative mechanisms for other  applications.  The IRTF Crypto 
Forum Research Group (CFRG) is  addressing these alternatives, 
investigating their use in Internet  protocols, and providing review and 
advice to IETF work in these areas.
