SHA-3 Reference and Optimized Implementations

Reference Platform and Compiler

Testings of the Reference and Optimized implementations will be performed by NIST with the following tools, at a minimum.

Reference Platform: Wintel personal computer, with an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 2.4GHz clock speed, 2GB RAM, running Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) Edition.

Compiler: the ANSI C compiler in the Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition.

NIST invites the public to conduct similar tests and compare results on additional platforms. For detailed technical evaluations of the submitted implementations, as well as the full details of the SHA-3 Submission Requirements, see the Federal Register Notice (November 2, 2007).
