The NIST Computer Security Resource Center called for nominations for a process to standardise lightweight symmetric primitives in August 2018.
In the update talk in the 2019 Lightweight Cryptography Workshop, it was hoped that winners would be announced in 2021.
At the 2020 workshop, it was hoped that finalists would be chosen by the end of 2020 with the final round roughly one year to complete.
Finalists were announced in March 2021.
At the May 2022 workshop it was hoped that winners would be announced in 2022 and standardisation would begin, with standardisation to be completed in 2023.
The project homepage also notes the evaluation process as being expected to finish in late 2022.
As we approach the end of 2022, is there any further news on the progress of the process?
