A Collision-Resistant Rate-1 Double-Block-Length Hash Function
This paper proposes a construction for collision resistant 2n-bit hash functions, based on n-bit block ciphers with 2n-bit keys. The construction is analysed in the ideal cipher model; for n = 128 an adversary would need roughly 2122 units of time to find a collision. The construction employs “combinatorial” hashing as an underlying building block (like Universal Hashing for cryptographic message authentication by Wegman and Carter). The construction runs at rate 1, thus improving on a similar rate 1/2 approach by Hirose (FSE 2006).
