Item description for Design of Hashing Algorithms (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) by Josef Pieprzyk...
This work presents recent developments in hashing algorithm design. Hashing is the process of creating a short digest (i.e., 64 bits) for a message of arbitrary length, for exam- ple 20 Mbytes. Hashing algorithms were first used for sear- ching records in databases; they are central for digital si- gnature applications and are used for authentication without secrecy. Covering all practical and theoretical issues related to the design of secure hashing algorithms the book is self contained; it includes an extensive bibliography on the topic.

explains many hash algorithms Jan 8, 2005
Hashing is vital in many computational applications. It forms the backbone of searching, for example. So this book is very useful in giving a detailed explanation of the theory behind various hashing methods.
It is slightly dated. It does not describe the Simple Hashing Algorithmn 2, which is currently considered the most secure method. But the ideas in the book are still applicable. Useful if you want a rigorous understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of the field. Or if you want to start designing your own hash algorithm.
