  Description     : The poly1305 message authentication code

 Poly1305 is a fast, one-time authentication function created by 
 Daniel J. Bernstein.  It is infeasible for an attacker to generate
 an authenticator for a message without the key.  However, a key must
 only be used for a single message. Authenticating two different
 messages with the same key allows an attacker to forge authenticators
 for other messages with the same key.
