Does Truecrypt's hash function weaken the security of a chosen cipher cascade?
Considering I want to choose a cipher cascade of 3 ciphers for long term security (50+ years) for my archived data on blu-ray disk. Truecrypt allows me to choose only 1 hash algorithm, but up to 3 cipher algorithms.
Doesn't that make the hash function the ultimate weakest link? If SHA2, Whirlpool and RIPEMD160 were all "broken" - would that result in a broken truecrypt container?
