Subject: [9front] chacha(2): mention problems that can arise with the chacha algorithm
Date: Tue, 18 May 2021 00:58:17 +0300
Message-ID: <CABO6shcWq0Sdd_zRX_RyJwSYx4NA98ZWvtY966Ucsq6J95AcRA@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

hello,

while developing a small program for fun that uses chacha,
i realised there were some important information missing
in the chacha(2) manpage.

i have added sections to the manpage that mentions
the IETF chacha's block counter overflow problem, and
a nonce reuse risk.

please tell me if i made a grammar or a technical mistake
somewhere.

(diff attached)
