Where did the information in this section come from? (talk)

Poorly referenced assertion that ChaCha is better.[edit]

In this diff, someone added the following content:

Where the CPU hardware does not support AES acceleration, ChaCha is an alternative cipher with better performance and without sacrificing security.

Supported by the following refs:

  • "So you want to use an alternative cipher…". A Few Thoughts on Cryptographic Engineering. 9 October 2012. (Blog, unreliable source)
  • Bernstein, Daniel. "Why switch from AES to a new stream cipher?". Retrieved 17 February 2021. (The website of the maker of ChaCha is not going to be neutral w.r.t ChaCha)

This violates WP:UNDUE, especially since the references supporting this assertion are rather dubious. Blogs are not reliable sources, as per WP:BLOGS. The website of the designer of ChaCha is not a neutral nor reliable source, as per WP:NPOV and WP:SPS. Samboy (talk) 21:20, 29 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
