I'm not sure what you mean by "Siphash isn't cryptographically secure". One of the key points of Siphash is that it *is* cryptographically secure. It has a smaller space than your typical hash function (MD5, SHA1, SHA2, etc) which means that collisions themselves are more likely, but the hash itself is cryptographically secure against pre-image attacks and it has collision resistance (collision resistance is different than just getting a collision).
