RIPEMD-160 is an improved, 160-bit version of the original RIPEMD, and the most common version in the family. RIPEMD-160 was designed in the open academic community, in contrast to the NSA-designed SHA-1 and SHA-2 algorithms. As well as 160-bit, there also exist 128-, 256- and 320-bit versions of this algorithm, called RIPEMD-128, RIPEMD-256, ripemd160 bitcoin wiki RIPEMD-320, respectively. The 128-bit version was intended only as a drop-in replacement for the original RIPEMD, which was also 128-bit, and which had been found to have questionable security.
In August 2004, a collision was reported for the original RIPEMD. This does not apply to RIPEMD-160. Collisions Hash Functions MD4 MD5 RIPEMD HAVAL”. On the Collision Resistance of RIPEMD-160″.
