  7. Abstract:
  8. In this thesis, first we will have a brief review on hash functions and related concepts.Then, we will descibe the hash function, Cubehash, which is one of the competitors in the competition held by NIST for selecting SHA-3 standard. Next, we will describe an attack based on linearization of differential paths in hash functions and apply this attack on Cubehash. At the end, we will discuss the results of this attack on Cubehash
