Description : BLAKE2 family of hash functions
The BLAKE2 family of hash functions is an improved version of the
SHA-3 finalist BLAKE.
BLAKE2b is optimized for 64-bit platforms and produces up to 64 bytes
of output; BLAKE2s is optimized for 32-bit platforms and produces up
to 32 bytes of output.
BLAKE2bp and BLAKE2sp are parallel versions of BLAKE2b and BLAKE2s
designed for increased performance on multicore and large-vector SIMD
libb2 provides a portable implementation of BLAKE2, optimized
implementations for IA-32 and AMD64 processors, and an interface
layer that automatically selects the best implementation for the
processor it is run on.
