- Has SHA-3 Arrived? 1 answer
Does the new SHA-3 Keccak hashing algorithm offer any benefits from SHA-512?
"Even worse, none of the SHA-3 candidates is significantly better. When SHA-3 is announced, I'm going to recommend that, unless the improvements are critical to their application, people stick with the tried and true SHA-512. At least for a while."
