RadioGatún, a belt-and-mill hash function

Guido Bertoni and Joan Daemen and Michaël Peeters and Gilles Van Assche

Abstract: We present an approach to design cryptographic hash functions that builds on and improves the one underlying the Panama hash function. We discuss the properties of the resulting hash functions that need to be investigated and give a concrete design called RadioGatún that is quite competitive with SHA-1 in terms of performance. We are busy performing an analysis of RadioGatún and present in this paper some preliminary results.
