+** The Skein Hash
+
+The underlying hashing code in Skerl is the reference implementation
+of Skein from the official NIST submission.
+
+Skein is a finalist candidate in the NIST competition to become SHA-3.
+http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/ST/hash/sha-3/Round3/submissions_rnd3.html
+
+It is a hash function designed by 
+Niels Ferguson, Stefan Lucks, Bruce Schneier, Doug Whiting, Mihir
+Bellare, Tadayoshi Kohno, Jon Callas, and Jesse Walker.
+
+Details on the algorithm as submitted and known analysis can be found
+at ecrypt:
+http://ehash.iaik.tugraz.at/wiki/Skein
+
+A full paper on Skein by the authors can be found at:
+http://www.schneier.com/skein1.3.pdf
+
+The official Skein page (http://www.skein-hash.info/) uses the headline:
+
+Fast, Secure, Simple, Flexible, Efficient. And it rhymes with "rain."

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
