Summary: In October 2012, the American national institute of standards and technology (NIST) announced the selection of Keccak as the winner of the SHA-3 cryptographic hash algorithm competition. This concluded an open competition that was remarkable both for its magnitude and the involvement of the cryptographic community. Public review is of paramount importance to increase the confidence in the new standard and to favor its quick adoption. The SHA-3 competition explicitly took this into account by giving open access to the candidate algorithms and everyone in the cryptographic community could try to break them, compare their performance, or simply give comments.
