RSA: SIMON and SPECK
Let's talk about Whitfield Diffie and the Cryptographers' Panel!  His talk on Crypto for Constrained Devices was also illuminating, and raised was the topic of the NSA publication of SIMON and SPECK algorithms.

I highly recommend reading the spec, the abstract for which is:

In this paper we propose two families of block ciphers, SIMON and SPECK, each
of which comes in a variety of widths and key sizes. While many lightweight
block ciphers exist, most were designed to perform well on a single platform
and were not meant to provide high performance across a range of devices. The
aim of SIMON and SPECK is to fill the need for secure, flexible, and analyzable
lightweight block ciphers. Each offers excellent performance on hardware and
software platforms, is flexible enough to admit a variety of implementations on
a given platform, and is amenable to analysis using existing techniques. Both
perform exceptionally well across the full spectrum of lightweight applications,
but SIMON is tuned for optimal performance in hardware, and SPECK for optimal
performance in software.
