We are an unofficial archive, replace .rip by .gov in the URL to access the official website. Access our document index here.


We are building a provable archive!
A lock (Dot gov) or https:// don't prove our archive is authentic, only that you securely accessed it. Note that we are working to fix that :)

Narrowest internal width


  The maximum amount of information from the input that can affect the output. For example, if f(x) = SHA-1(x) || 01, and x consists of a string of 1000 binary bits, then the narrowest internal width of f(x) is 160 bits (the SHA-1 output length), and the output width of f(x) is 162 bits (the 160 bits from the SHA-1 operation, concatenated by 01).
