Cryptanalysis of the Hash Functions MD4 and RIPEMD


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 MD4 hash computations. In this paper, we present a new attack on MD4 which can find a collision with probability 2−2… (More)
