The assertion that all possible data blocks can be differentiated by a 160-bit SHA-1 hash is just unmitigated blindness: "Venti cannot lie since SHA-1 is a cryptographically secure hash; no data block can be found with the same address.". One would certainly hope Venti does something intelligent when that rare collision happens, rather than silent failure or crash... —Preceding unsigned comment added by Siodhe (talkcontribs) 17:24, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

A Venti installation is more likely to be destroyed by a tornado than trip over a SHA-1 collision. Venti does not do anything especially intelligent when that rare tornado happens. (talk) 05:28, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

The article doesn't mention how Venti deals with hash collisions (if it does so at all).

The new venti (nventi?) is now a part of Plan 9, isn't it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:35, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Broken Links[edit]

Many of the (historical?) links to aren't there. doesn't seen to find them either —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wikip rhyre (talkcontribs) 17:19, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

SHA-1 collision is now possible[edit]

Please see:

As of 2017-02-17, SHA-1 collision is possible. Need to update the relevant section in this page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:52, 7 March 2017 (UTC)
