I've been thinking about writing a hash function, which is fast to compute, and requires minimal effort, yet cannot be inversed easily. What i was thinking of, is that i compute (x^(y + z) mod n) mod maxsize Where x is a number (which would probably be 2, 3, 5, 7, or 11), z being an offset, which is chosen, so that at y=0, x^(y+z) > n = true. y is your number to be hashed. n is also a number, which is equal to pq where p a nd q are very large prime numbers. (1024 bits each, or more). Maxsise is the size of the output, 2^32 or 2^64 would be common. n, x, and z would not be changable, y and maxsize are. (because you need different things to hash each time...) Now, what i was thinking, is how i would create a function which uses this, so that i can do this, with minimal effort. (also, i will be hashing two strings together mostly, the first string will always remain fixed, the other changing each time). Are these thigs achivable? Are they securish? From, Nice coder
