in reply to 64-bit digest algorithms

It is somewhat obscure, but there is a message (or data) authenication code defined in FIPS 113 - Computer Data Authentication based on DES that produces a 64-bit digest.

    I'm probably being too literal here, but I don't get where the 'G' appears in the "following equations"?

    The calculation of the DAC is given by the following equations where G represents the Exclusive-OR of two vectors.

    01 = e(D1) 02 = e(D2 + 01) 03 = e(D3 + 02) On = e(Dn + 0n-1)

    The algorithm also seems to call for DES encryption and a secret key. I think the the duality of the term 'digest' is screwing me here. "64-bit hashing algorithm" seems to turn up better hits.
