Would like to reach community to help improve the performance of Poly1305
using POWER8 and POWER9 ISA enhancements, and to provide proof that
achieved performance of Poly1305 is close to optimal for the platform
(i.e matching or beating OpenSSL performance *)
Optimized assembly implementations in the Cryptogams repository  may serve
as useful reference. C-based intrinsic implementations are also acceptable
given prior conditions (*).
Financial bounty upon completion, community acceptance of patches, and reviewer
Moreover, free access to a ppc64le VM or direct Jenkins CI account can be
obtained at OSU Open Source Lab: https://osuosl.org/services/powerdev/
You can list me (firstname.lastname@example.org) as the IBM Advocate.
