First Round Candidates

Official comments on the First Round Candidate Algorithms should be submitted using the "Submit Comment" link for the appropriate algorithm. Comments from hash-forum listserv subscribers will also be forwarded to the hash-forum listserv. We will periodically post and update the comments received to the appropriate algorithm.

Please refrain from using OFFICIAL COMMENT to ask administrative questions, which should be sent to hash-function@nist.gov

By selecting the "Submitter's Website" links, you will be leaving NIST webspace. We have provided these links to other web sites because they may have information that would be of interest to you.
