This paper presents the design and analysis of an area efficient Blue Midnight Wish compression function with digest size of 256 bits (BMW-256) on FPGA platforms. The proposed architecture achieves significant improvements in system throughput with reduced area. We demonstrate the performance of the proposed BMW hash function core using VIRTEX 5 FPGA implementation. The new BMW hash function design allows for 16X speed up in performance while consuming significantly lower area than previously reported (i.e. just 445 slices).
