compare and contrast existing hash functions with new (theoretical and upcoming) hash functions.
In this assignment you will perform a mini research that later, towards the end of the semester, you will use as reference to explore further.
Research academic and industry white papers (3 or 4 sources) on developments in Hash capabilities, including Quantum Computing capabilities.
You may compare and contrast existing hash functions with new (theoretical and upcoming) hash functions.
You may compare and contrast new developments in functions generating randomness.
You may identify additional encryption algorithms not discussed in class.
Avoid limiting your writing to the encryption algorithms discuss in the video presentation.
Do include unanswered questions, or possible topics to expand this mini research and why the topics should be expanded.
Write a short report, 5 to 8 pages, including diagrams and references to explain upcoming security changes, include potential impacts to usability and privacy.
