I would expect to see a lot of work go in—including vetting by cryptography experts—before I’m personally ready to trust this assertion. Either that or it should implement a well-known algorithm. I’m new to this community, but I don’t think suckless should be in the business of inventing new cryptography schemes, although there might be plenty of work we could do in clean, minimal implementations of existing, well-vetted algorithms.
