BLAKE2: simpler, smaller, fast as MD5
'We present the cryptographic hash function BLAKE2, an improved version
of the SHA-3 finalist BLAKE optimized for speed in software. Target applications include
cloud storage, intrusion detection, or version control systems. BLAKE2 comes
in two main flavors: BLAKE2b is optimized for 64-bit platforms, and BLAKE2s for
smaller architectures. On 64-bit platforms, BLAKE2 is often faster than MD5, yet provides
security similar to that of SHA-3. We specify parallel versions BLAKE2bp and
BLAKE2sp that are up to 4 and 8 times faster, by taking advantage of SIMD and/or
multiple cores. BLAKE2 has more benefits than just speed: BLAKE2 uses up to 32%
less RAM than BLAKE, and comes with a comprehensive tree-hashing mode as well
as an efficient MAC mode.'
