An Illustrated Guide to Cryptographic Hashes
Well, Steve Friedl does it again: in response to the recent flurry about the MD5 and SHA1 collisions and the End of Cryptography As We Know It, he has written another one of his Tech Tips, An Illustrated Guide to Cryptographic Hashes (mentioned in his blog). Even though he claims he is no crypto expert, this either does not show or, if true, even *helps* his writing style: it's clear, it's simple, it's helps dispel the hype and hysteria.
 Newsflash: the crypto world is NOT, repeat NOT ending this week!

Peter points to an illustrated guide to cryptographic hashes. Glanced over it, and while it isn't Bruce Schneier's Applied Cryptography, it does a good job explaining the topic in layman's terms.
