Bug#522262: RFA: twofish

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request an adopter for the twofish package.

The package description is:

This package contains a header file and static library implementing the
Twofish cryptographic algorithm, one of the five finalists in the AES
(Advanced Encryption Standard) competition sponsored by the United States's
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

 The main properties of this library are:
 * Free: The library can be freely used for any application.  (For details see
   the licensing terms and disclaimer in the source code file itself.)
 * Fast: The code has been optimised for speed, at the expense of memory use
   and code size.
 * Easy to use: Care has been taken to make the code easy to integrate into a
   larger project.  Extensive comments explain how to perform the integration
   and how to use the library.
 * Portable: The default code is written in fully portable C.  By adjusting
   certain macro definitions the user can provide platform-specific code for
   certain functions, which can improve the speed.
 * Documented: Extensive documentation is available in the comments of the
   source files.  This includes information about integration, optimisation
   for specific platforms, the library API, and detailed explanation of all
   the code.
 * Self-testing: Extensive self-tests are run every time the library is
 * Large: The code has been optimised for speed, which leads to the use of
   large tables.  No attempt has been made to minimise the code or data size.

 Because the interface of this library has not yet been declared stable by
 its author, Niels Ferguson, it is currently available only as a static
 library, not as a shared object.
