11. Adaptive Preimage Resistance Analysis Revisited: Requirements, Subtleties and Implications
Topic: Cybersecurity
Published: 4/16/2012
Authors: Dong H. Chang, Moti Yung
Abstract: In the last few years, the need to design new cryptographic hash functions has led to the intense study of when desired hash multi-properties are preserved or assured under compositions and domain extensions. In this area, it is important to identify ...
