Is there any scientific paper on RIPEMD-160 being more secure than SHA1, as mentioned in inlay table on page 35?

Hi Pawel!

I'm not aware of any such paper, unfortunately. But just recently researchers at Google managed to find a collision on SHA1. Please have a look at their announcement: https://security.googleblog.com/2017/02/announcing-first-sha1-collision.html?m=1

Since there is a proven practical way to find collisions, one can safely say that RIPEMD-160 is more secure than SHA1.
