Abstract

BLAKE2 is a successor of BLAKE, designed in fall 2012—after Keccak was chosen as SHA3—by Jean-Philippe Aumasson, Samuel Neves, Zooko Wilcox-O’Hearn, and ChristianWinnerlein. (The project partly stems from Twitter discussions, where the authors are respectively @veorq, @sevenps, @zooko, and @codesinchaos.) BLAKE2 was engineered to leverage BLAKE’s high efficiency and security, and to optimize it for modern applications, with simplicity and usability as primary considerations.
