Abstract: A simple method for constructing collisions for Shpilrain’s polynomial-based hash function from ICISC 2006 is presented. The attack relies on elementary linear algebra and can be considered as practical: For the parameters suggested, we give a specific collision, computed by means of a computer algebra system.
