Now Meet Blake 2 … In Hardware

Ssh! Don’t tell NIST, but there’s (possibly) a better hashing method than SHA-256 (SHA-2 standard). And, it’s Blake 2.

So, while Blake 2 has always been faster than most of the existing cryptographic hashes with software methods, a new hardware build has been created that will allow Blake 2s to be implemented in hardware on 32-bit processors:
