NORX - A Parallel and Scalable Authenticated Encryption Algorithm

Yawning Angel (yawning at schwanenlied dot me)

Warning

NORX is a rather new authenticated encryption algorithm. The authors are confident that it is secure but nevertheless NORX should be considered experimental. Therefore, do not use it in your applications!

This package implements the NORX Authenticated Encryption Algorithm, specifically the NORX64-4-1 and NORX64-6-1 variants, as recommended by the designers for software implementations on modern 64-bit CPUs.

This implementation is derived from the Public Domain reference implementation by Jean-Philippe Aumasson, Philipp Jovanovic, and Samuel Neves.
