No, SHA-3 has not been formally approved. On the other hand, what do you mean "not proved to be secure"? Do you really thing that ...

There is none. Conjunctive normal form is for Boolean formulas, which have a single truth value. SHA-256 is not a Boolean formula (SHA-256(x) is not "true" or "false.") Furthermore, CNF is only applicable if you have a fixed number of variables; this is not true for SHA-256, which has variable-length input. At best you could have 256 different formulas, each ...

It depends. If you have full control over the whole system, all components and can use whatever algorithm you want to deploy, you can stick to the one giving you the best efficiency which fulfills your security requirements. In this case, it would be Tiger. However, Tiger has a 192 bit output. If that is not enough for you, go for SHA256. However, if the ...
