We discuss various issues associated with signature schemes based solely upon hash functions. Such schemes are currently attractive in some limited applications, but their importance may increase if ever a practical quantum computer was built. We discuss issues related to both their implementation and their security. As far as we are aware this is the first complete treatment of practical implementations of hash based signature schemes in the literature.
