[Botan-devel] Thorough performance comparison of several crypto libraries

Timo Bingmann has done a very thorough comparison of cipher
performance of a number of different crypto implementations and
libraries, across several computers and Linux distributions. There is
a lot of data here, much of which I haven't really digested, but two
interesting data points - AES in Botan is much slower than it should
be, and Serpent in Botan is apparently significantly faster than in
other implementations.
