Specification v1.01

The specification of PRIMATEs has been updated to v1.01. This specification makes our intention explicit that the nonce length is a fixed-length parameter. We thank Ivan Tjuawinata and Hongjun Wu for their observations regarding variable-length nonces.

PRIMATEs: HANUMAN, GIBBON and APE

PRIMATEs are a family of permutation-based authenticated encryption algorithms for lightweight applications. They are currently under submission to the CAESAR competition. There are three PRIMATEs: the basic SpongeWrap-variant HANUMAN, GIBBON for speed-critical applications, and APE for additional security when nonces
