Subject: Re: [PHC] polypasshash slashdotted

Oh, I hadn't even considered media attention as influencing the contest.

Honestly, as I understand the other entrants PolyPassHash is really quite
orthogonal to the other submissions (and can be used in conjunction with
them).   We're using a slightly different set of assumptions and working
from a different direction.

So, I feel a bit like I've entered a cat in a dog show.   I certainly don't
expect to win, and wouldn't be surprised to be told that the entrant
doesn't fit the requirements.

My hope is that whatever hash function wins the contest will also leverage
the password hash storage ideas from PolyPassHash to store the resulting
data.   The feedback from the community so far has been amazing so it was
well worth the time to apply.
