It is designed to be more efficient thanks to SIMD. > Since the choice of SipHash is a private implementation detail, and since we > all like fast things, is it worth considering switching to HighwayHash? > Don't ask me, I'm only a release manager (for a version nobody cares about > anymore). These things are above my pay grade. The question is more the number of cryptanalysis and if they are know weakness. In the meanwhile, someone can maybe experiment a hack to use HighwayHash in Python and run some microbenchmarks and pyperformance benchmark suite. Victor -- Night gathers, and now my watch begins.
