NIST 公告選出 SHA-3 的演算法...

NIST 公告選出了 SHA-3 演算法:「NIST Selects Winner of Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA-3) Competition」。

演算法是 Keccak (唸作 catch-ack),這個演算法其中一個優勢是硬體速度:

Keccak has higher performance in hardware implementations than SHA-2 or any of the other finalists.

由於選上的演算法會是 royalty-free license,接下來應該會看到許多 spec 開始納入 SHA-3... (參考 Announcing Request for Candidate Algorithm Nominations for a New Cryptographic Hash Algorithm (SHA-3) Family 這份文件)
