Unformatted text preview: nction hashes the message in blocks of 64 bits and produces a 64-bit hash value (See Figure 18.10). No known attack on this scheme is easier than brute force. Figure 18.10 Modified Davies-Meyer. Preneel-Bosselaers-Govaerts-Vandewalle
This hash function, first proposed in , produces a hash value twice the block length of the encryption algorithm: A 64-bit algorithm produces a 128-bit hash. With a 64-bit block algorithm, the scheme produces two 64-bit hash values, Gi and Hi, which are concatenated to produce the 128-bit hash. With most block algorithms, the block size is 64 bits. Two adjacent message blocks, Li and Ri, each the size of the block length, are hashed together. G0 = IG, where IG is a random initial value H0 = IH, where IH is another random initial value Gi = ELi• Hi- 1(Ri • Gi- 1 ) • Ri • Gi- 1 • Hi- 1 Hi = ELi• Ri(Hi- 1 • Gi- 1 ) • Li • Gi- 1 • Hi- 1 Lai demonstrates attacks against this scheme that, in some instances, make the birthday attack trivially solvable [925, 926]. Preneel  and Coppersmith  also have successful attacks against this scheme. Do not use it. Quisquater-Girault
This scheme, first proposed in , generates a hash that is twice the block length and has a hash rate of 1. It has two hash values, Gi and Hi, and two blocks, Li and Ri, are hashed together. G0 = IG, where IG is a random initial value H0 = IH, where IH is another random initial value Wi = ELi(Gi - 1 • Ri) • Ri • Hi- 1 Gi = ERi(Wi • Li) • Gi- 1 • Hi- 1 • Li Hi = Wi • Gi- 1 Previous Table of Contents Next Products | Contact Us | About Us | Privacy | Ad Info | Home Use of this site is subject to certain Terms & Conditions, Copyright © 1996-2000 EarthWeb Inc.
