Hello everyone,

I wrote this RFC draft for KangarooTwelve
It provides an efficient and secure hashing primitive, which is able to
the parallelism of the implementation in a scalable way. It uses tree
over a round-reduced version of SHAKE128 as underlying primitive.

The reference code is also at available at:

Draft is available here:

I would like to submit this RFC under the Internet Research Task Force
and as far as I understood I need a Research Group (RFC 5743).
Anyone would be interested to be the Editor?

Of course, any other feedback is welcome.

Kind regards,
