The reference link states ""The Skein Hash Function Family". The paper in which Threefish was introduced.". The paper itself says "Dividing up our design [using Threefish] makes Skein easier to understand, analyze, and prove properties about. The underlying Threefish algorithm draws upon years of knowledge of block cipher design and analysis."
It doesn't sound like this paper 'introduced it' when it talks about Threefish already existing and being reviewed for 'years'. --Zom-B (talk) 05:40, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
No, they're talking about "years of knowledge of block cipher design", not years of knowledge about Threefish. -- intgr[talk] 07:48, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
