Message Authentication Codes (MACs) are valuable tools for ensuring the integrity of messages. MACs may be built around a universal hash function (NH) which was explored in the construction of UMAC. In this paper, we use a variation on NH called WH. WH reaches optimality in the sense that it is universal with half the hash length of NH and it achieves(More)
Message Authentication Codes (MACs) are a valuable tool for ensuring the integrity of messages. MACs may be built around a keyed hash function. In this paper, we propose three variations on NH (a universal hash function explored in UMAC [1]), namely PH, PR and WH. Our main motivation was to prove that universal hash functions can be employed to provide(More)
Technological developments such as two dimensional electrophoresis [11, electroblotting of proteins [2], the introduction of the gas phase sequencer [3], and the introduction of polyvinylidenedifluoride (PVDF) membranes mark major advances of the last decade in protein characterization and isolation. The ability to sequence proteins that have been blotted(More)
