On the security of the Rescue hash function

Tim Beyne and Anne Canteaut and Gregor Leander and María Naya-Plasencia and Léo Perrin and Friedrich Wiemer

Abstract: In this report, we cryptanalyse the Rescue hash function. In particular, we look at linear and differential cryptanalysis of Rescue, how multiplicative subgroups are propagated by the round function and at rebound attacks. Overall, we do not find any direct threat to the security of Rescue.
