Multi-Mode Operator for SHA-2 Hash Functions


We propose an improved implementation of the SHA-2 hash family, with minimal operator latency and reduced hardware requirements. We also propose a high frequency version at the cost of only two cycles of latency per message. Finally we present a multi-mode architecture able to perform either a SHA-384 or SHA-512 hash or to behave as two independant SHA-224 or SHA-256 operators. Such capability adds increased flexibility for applications ranging from a server running multiple streams to independent pseudorandom number generation. We also demonstrate that our architecture achieves a performance comparable to separate implementations while requiring much less hardware.
