Hello All,

Please find the new THEX draft at

Changes in this version include:

o A *backwards incompatible* change to the THEX hash tree functions that
avoid collisions between the leaf nodes and the internal nodes.  Many
thanks to Zooko for pointing out this problem and many thanks to
the IRTF Cryptographic Forum Research Group for suggesting the
appropriate fix.

o Test vectors for hash trees based on the Tiger algorithm provided by
Gordon Mohr.

Justin Chapweske, Onion Networks
