Ewan Fleischmann, Christian Forler, and Michael Gorski. Classification of the SHA-3 Candidates. In Symmetric Cryptography. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 9031, pp. 1-11, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2009)


In this note we give an overview on the current state of the SHA-3 candidates. First, we classify all publicly known candidates and, second, we outline and summarize the performance data as given in the candidates documentation for $64$-bit and $32$-bit implementations. We define performance classes and classify the hash algorithms. Note, that this article will be updated as soon as new candidates arrive or new cryptanalytic results get published. Comments to the authors of this article are welcome.
