Hash Function Implementation Using Artificial Neural Network
Keywords:One-way Hash function, Neural network, Chaotic map, Plaintext Sensitivity
In this paper, an algorithm for one-way hash function construction based on a two-layer feed-forward neural network along with the piece-wise linear (pwl) chaotic map is proposed. Based on chaotic neural networks, a Hash function is constructed, which makes use of neural networks' diffusion property and chaos' confusion property. This function encodes the plaintext of arbitrary length into the hash value of fixed length (typically, 128-bit, 256-bit, or 512-bit). Theoretical analysis and experimental results show that this hash function is one-way, with high key sensitivity and plaintext sensitivity, and secure against birthday attacks or meet-in-the-middle attacks. These properties make it a suitable choice for data signature or authentication.
