It might be nice to use Tiger hash someday.


  1. It is fast -- up to 3x as fast as SHA-256 on 64-bit CPUs.
  1. It has 192-bit output, which is what we want for as-small-as-possible crypto caps. Using a larger-output-size hash function such as SHA-265 and truncating the output from 256 bits to 192 bits could be insecure.
