I know python and basic c++, linux enthusiast, still though I just began with cryptography I want one day to build my own cryptographic hash function. Where should I begin? I would appreciate any topics regarding anything.Thanks in advance 		 	   		  


please buy this book [1] (note: I'm not involved with authors, I used it
back in my days at University, and still using it). Then read it, from
beginning, at least one time. Do exercises, and pratice yourself against
theory. Then, buy this other book [2], and read it al least one time.
Then go back to the first, re-read it again, and read the second.

Have a nice day :-)
