In this paper, the authors provide the first security analysis of reduced RIPEMD-160 regarding its collision resistance with practical complexity. The ISO/IEC standard RIPEMD-160 was proposed 15 years ago and may be used as a drop-in replacement for SHA-1 due to their same hash output length. Only few results have been published for RIPEMD-160 so far and most attacks have a complexity very close to the generic bound. In this paper, they present the first application of the attacks on MD5 and SHA-1 to RIPEMD-160. Due to the dual-stream structure of RIPEMD-160 the application of these attacks is nontrivial and almost impossible without the use of automated tools.
