(Slightly tangential but on topic I hope)
Am I the only surprised that the NSA designed block ciphers SIMON and
SPECK is vulnerable to differential attacks?
If I understand the history correctly NSA supported the development of
DES as well as SHA-0/SHA-1 and their contributions shows knowledge about
differential attacks at least as far back as 1977.
