Question is a follow-up to this one. The question was about accelerating SHA1. I am writing an application, where I do have a choice of hash algorithm, as long as it's a strong one. I want to be able to use the one which could be CPU-accelerated on consumer grade AMD and/or Intel processors. Which one should I take?
Bonus question: does mono on Linux have any support for hardware accelerated hashing, and if yes, which algorithm(s)?
