FYI for those who are interested in lightweight block ciphers.

Today at the MIT Media Lab Legal Hack-a-thon on Identity we had a
great presentation from a couple of designers from the NSA regarding
their new lightweight ciphers called SIMON and SPECK. These ciphers
are designed for low-power limited gate devices (such as RFID and
similar devices).

The MIT Media Lab Hack-a-thon page is here:
