Today the NSA proposed that Simon and Speck be added the the ISO JTC1/SC27
approved ciphers spec.

A study period was approved.

But no other non NSA lightweight algorithms have been proposed to ISO,
other than chaskey from Hitachi.

If you have opinions on alternatives for lightweight block vipers, macs,
hashes etc, please let me know so I can try and set the ball rolling with

Simon and speck look OK. But the source is not a little bit tainted.
