I was looking a Wikipedia article on SHA-2, and the "Comparison of SHA functions" table seems to indicate that SHA-2 is less secure than SHA-1. Is this true, or is the table wrong / misleading? ...
Is SHA-1 collision free on data up to 20 bytes long (lenght of hash / internal state)? That means that every input produce unique output, but you surely know that, i just write it in order my question ...
It is conjectured that SHA-1 has been broken from the "research" perspective but no in real world. That is that there is an algebraic attack that explores weaknesses on its algrebraic construction. ...
Suppose we truncate only 40 bits of sha1 hash output.hence it is insecure.how can we find two message as input which gives first 40 bits of hash as same value i.e we have to find collision for first ...
Is there a known pair of distinct bit strings (A,B) such that SHA1(A) == SHA1(B)? If the answer is no than how can SHA1 be considered broken?
I'm building a system that has to take file paths, and generate a unique name for each one. I'm planning on using SHA1 as the hash function. My question is: do I have to deal with possible collisions ...
I'm building a storage system for JSON documents where they are looked up on a 128 bit key. These JSON documents have a timestamp within them, but apart from that are user-entered data. These JSON ...
