> The competition took more than five years and comprised several rounds of submissions and eliminations, with the finalists being announced in late 2010. Cryptographers then had a chance to review each of the finalists and look for weaknesses, areas that needed improvement and other issues. On Tuesday, NIST announced that Keccak, an algorithm designed by Guido Bertoni, Joan Daemen, Gilles Van Assche and Michaël Peeters, had been chosen as the winner of the competition and would now become the federal government's hash standard.

> ?The Internet as we know it is expanding to link devices that many people do not ordinarily think of as being part of a network,? Polk says. ?SHA-3 provides a new security tool for system and protocol designers, and that may create opportunities for security in networks that did not exist before.?
