eBAEAD: ECRYPT Benchmarking of Authenticated Ciphers

The eBAEAD (ECRYPT Benchmarking of Authenticated Ciphers, pronounced "e-bad") project, part of eBACS, measures authenticated ciphers according to the following criteria: "Time" refers to time on real computers: time on an ARM Cortex-A8, time on an Intel Sandy Bridge, time on an Intel Haswell, etc. The point of these cost measures is that they are directly visible to the cryptographic user. eBAEAD times each stream cipher on a wide variety of computers, ensuring direct comparability of all systems on whichever computers are of interest to the users.

There are separate pages explaining how to submit ciphers to eBAEAD, listing the ciphers already submitted, and presenting the latest eBAEAD measurements.
