This document analyzes the use of hashes in Secure Neighbor Discovery
(SEND), the possible threats to these hashes and the impact of recent
attacks on hash functions used by SEND.  The SEND specification
currently uses the SHA-1 hash algorithm and PKIX certificates
and does not provide support for hash algorithm agility.  This
document provides an analysis of possible threats to the hash
algorithms used in SEND.  This document is not an Internet 
Standards Track specification; it is published for informational 

This document is a product of the Cga & Send maIntenance Working Group of the IETF.
