Another approach would be to formally prefer digest algorithms that do
not exhibit the same single-pass behavior of SHA-1 -- is that feasible?
No. Single pass processing an important feature. Anything else can
only be done if the required amount of RAM is small enough and with an
upper limit to be implemented on small devices. Think of a network
proxy with no need to store the data passing through but to verify
signatures of large chunks of this data.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
