SHA-3 [3] drives the design and analysis of efficient cryptographic hash functions. This paper foresees to summarise the selection process, its present status and forthcoming events highlighting the main novelties found. Some relevant criteria to compare the different candidates are described and finally special attention is paid to the impact of the future SHA-3 on the Spanish IT market.
