Will crypto/nacl be upgraded to use chacha20 instead of salsa20 algorithm

(Baha Sk) #1


The crypto/nacl’s box and secretbox packages use salsa20 encryption algorithm. Are there any plans to upgrade them with chacha20?

Or is there an alternative?

I do notice that the x/crypto/chacha20poly1305 is solely used for aead ciphers, but not the regular box and secretbox ciphers.

Any hints, clarifications or update on crypto/nacl is welcome.
