1 Collisions for MD5 MD5 is the hash function designed by Ron Rivest [9] as a strengthened version of MD4[8]. In 1993 Bert den Boer and Antoon Bosselaers [1] found pseudo-collision for MD5 which is made of the same message with two different sets of initial value. H. Dobbertin[3] found another kind of collision which consists of two different 512-bit(More)
MD4 is a hash function developed by Rivest in 1990. It serves as the basis for most of the dedicated hash functions such as MD5, SHAx, RIPEMD, and HAVAL. In 1996, Dobbertin showed how to find collisions of MD4 with complexity equivalent to 2 20 MD4 hash computations. In this paper, we present a new attack on MD4 which can find a collision with probability 2(More)
This paper considers the security of iterated block ciphers against the diierential cryptanalysis introduced by Biham and Shamir. Diierential cryptanalysis is a chosen-plaintext attack on secret-key block ciphers that are based on iterating a cryptographically weak function r times (e.g., the 16-round Data Encryption Standard (DES)). It is shown that the(More)
The security of hash functions based on a block cipher with a block length of m bits and a key length of k bits, where k ≤ m, is considered. New attacks are presented on a large class of iterated hash functions with a 2m-bit hash result which processes in each iteration two message blocks using two encryptions. In particular, the attacks break three(More)
