Many of my questions get down-voted because people don't understand them, or don't understand what I am trying to do.
Did Merkle invent cryptographic hashing?
I can't find the Rabin 78 paper online. The Rabin 79 MIT/LCS/TR-212 does not have iterated hash functions. It's true that hash functions were well known in 1978 as were one-way functions, but I haven't found one-way hash functions before Merkle's thesis.
