- Which hashing algorithm is best for uniqueness and speed? 11 answers
I am a 10th grader and I need to do a research project. I am doing a science fair experiment on “The Effect of Different Cryptographic Hash Function on Decryption Times and Singularity.” To test this, I wanted to know what software/platform I should use to test these different hash functions and also what are the newest hash functions I should use. I only need 3-5 functions and my control is SHA-256 because it is the most standardly used one. What other newer hash functions should I use and what makes them so special to be used?
Here’s a link to a good amount of data I found, but it is quite outdated and I wanted to know if there were newer functions: Which hashing algorithm is best for uniqueness and speed?
This can be a science fair experiment because I am testing 200k words on a couple of hash functions. I am basically testing this on that. I am sorry if you got confused. The output is what I will be putting in my data table.
