We congratulate Ling Song1,2,3, Guohong Liao4,1 and Jian Guo1 for solving the 6-round collision challenge on Keccak[r=1440, c=160].
The collision search took a computational effort of about 250 evaluations of the Keccak-f rounds. It follows an improvement of the technique previously used for solving the 5-round collision challenge in May last year (then solved by Jian Guo, Meicheng Liu, Ling Song and Kexin Qiao).
