Successful attacks against the two most commonly used cryptographic hash functions, MD5 and SHA-1, have triggered a kind of feeding frenzy in the cryptographic community. Many researchers are now working on hash function attacks, and we can expect new results in this area for the next several years. This article discusses the SHA-1 attack and the US National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST's) plans for SHA-1 and hash functions in general.
