    AES Alternatives

    Both the runner up for AES aka Serpent and twofish are both very well known cryptoes. how come there is so little focus/infomation about the Estream portfolie.
    Well besides Salsa20 that seesm to begetting a lot of ground in its chacha20 form (google)
    but I have almost never heard about NC-256 or rabbit.
    I just happend to stumble upon them on wikipedia.


    Why did they never really take of at least as something ppl debate ?
    Is there some kind of easy comparison of performance securty among these especial vs the AES and the AES runner ups?
    Especially not to technical information about the cryptoes.

    Here they have the requirements for AES: https://competitions.cr.yp.to/aes.html
    as you can see, its not decided based on the cryptographic strength only.

    But I never heard of NC-256 or rabbit, where did you find them?

    Yeah i know AES was chossen due to speed in the final so it would be eaiser/faster ti integrate and could widespread support for it

    Rabbit and NC-256 are other winners in Estream which is the european version of EAS
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ESTREAM
    Chacha20
    NC-128/256
    Rabbit

    but besides chacha20 the other that are all from the same portfolio are like forgotten myths.
