White Paper 8: 1-Wire® SHA-1 Overview

Abstract: While discussions of data security often focus on encryption, an arguably more valuable aspect is authentication. This paper presents a straightforward technique for digital authentication of hardware, data, and users. It goes on to provide an overview of the 1-Wire Secure Hash Algorithm 1 (SHA-1) devices that use this technique. Finally, it provides references to other documents, kits, and examples for continued research and development.
