Hash Functions Using Chaotic Iterations

Jacques M. Bahi, Christophe Guyeux
2010 Journal of Algorithms & Computational Technology  
In this paper, a novel formulation of discrete chaotic iterations in the field of dynamical systems is given. Their topological properties are studied: it is mathematically proven that, under some conditions, these iterations have a chaotic behavior as defined by Devaney. This chaotic behavior allows us to propose a way to generate new hash functions. An illustrative example is detailed in order to show how to use our theoretical study in practice.
