SHA-3/224 generator

SHA-3/224 is a cryptographic hash function that is part of the SHA-3 (Secure Hash Algorithm 3) family of hash functions. It generates a 224-bit hash value from a given input message, which is designed to be resistant to various types of attacks, including collision and preimage attacks.

SHA-3 was developed as a successor to the SHA-2 family of hash functions, which includes algorithms such as SHA-256 and SHA-512. SHA-3 was selected as the winner of a public competition held by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in 2012, and was standardized as NIST FIPS 202.

SHA-3/224 uses a different algorithm than SHA-2, which makes it more resistant to certain types of attacks. It is designed to be secure and efficient, and is suitable for use in a variety of applications that require a high level of security, such as digital signatures, password storage, and blockchain technology.

However, like other cryptographic hash functions, SHA-3/224 is computationally expensive and may not be the best choice for applications where performance is a concern. In some cases, a shorter variant of SHA-3, such as SHA-3/256 or SHA-3/512, may be sufficient for the desired level of security, while providing better performance.
