XSalsa20Poly1305 (a.k.a. NaCl
crypto_secretbox) is an
authenticated encryption cipher amenable to fast, constant-time
implementations in software, based on the Salsa20 stream cipher
(with XSalsa20 192-bit nonce extension) and the Poly1305 universal
hash function, which acts as a message authentication code.
This algorithm has largely been replaced by the newer ChaCha20Poly1305 (and the associated XChaCha20Poly1305) AEAD ciphers (RFC 8439), but is useful for interoperability with legacy NaCl-based protocols.
No security audits of this crate have ever been performed, and it has not been thoroughly assessed to ensure its operation is constant-time on common CPU architectures.
