Hamsi can become more than a type of fish due to a Turkish mathematician

21 Aug



One of the most famous type of fish in Turkey, namely Hamsi can now become very famous in the world of cryptography and security. A Turkish mathematician who is pursuing a Ph.D. at K.U. Leuven proposed a cryptographic hashing algorithm to NIST.

Özgül Küçük‘s Hamsi cryptographic hashing algorithm is one of the 15 algorithms that made it to the second round of the international contest.

As we’re getting very close to the finals I’m eagerly waiting to hear about the winner.

PS: It is also a pleasure to see the name of Alp Öztarhan, a colleague of mine, who seems to have implemented the first version of the algorithm.
