Default NIST names Keccak hashing algorithm as SHA-3

From http://h-online.com/-1722490

The United States National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has announced the winner of its competition to select a cryptographic hash algorithm to bear the name SHA-3. The five-year competition attracted 64 entries in total with the winner being the Keccak (pronounced "catch-ack") algorithm created by Guido Bertoni, Joan Daemen, Gilles Van Assche and Michaël Peeters. The competition was created in 2007 when NIST had reasons to suspect that the current SHA-2 algorithm might be threatened.

Keccak was selected for its ability to run on a large variety of computing hardware and because, in tests carried out by NIST and independent reviewers, it was the fastest algorithm when implemented in hardware.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
