We investigate the possibility of using index forms as basic ingredients of cryptographically important functions. We suggest
the use of a hash function based on index forms and we prove some important properties of the suggested function.

In this paper we present a new one-way function with collision resistance. The security of this function is based on the difficulty
of solving a norm form equation. We prove that this function is collision resistant, so it can be used as a one-way hash function.
We show that this construction probably provides a family of one-way functions.
