Bob believes that he has come up with a nifty hash function. He assigns
a numeric value VChar to each letter in the alphabet equal to the
letter’s position in the alphabet, i.e., VA = 1, VB = 2, …, VZ = 26.
For a message, he calculates the hash value H = (VChar 1 x VChar 2 x
VChar 3 …x VChar N) mod(26). Bob uses this function to send a one-word
message, PANEL, to his banker Bill, along with his calculated hash value
for the message. Alice is able to intercept the message, and generates
an alternative message that has a hash value that collides with Bob’s
original hash value. Show a message that Alice may have spoofed, and
demonstrate that its hash value collides with Bob’s original hash.
Va = 1 H= (16 * 1 * 14 * 5 * 12) mod 26
