Skein hash function demo BGS5/EHSx

Showcase, April 17, 2015 - 1:41pm, 2027 views

Skein is a cryptographic hash function; finalist in the NIST hash function competition.
Entered as a candidate to become the SHA-3 standard, the successor of SHA-1 and
SHA-2, it ultimately lost to NIST hash candidate
Keccak. [2]

The name Skein refers to how the function intertwines the input, as skein of yarn. [1]
