Various Kyber software libraries in various environments leak secret information into timing, specifically because
these libraries include a line of code that divides a secret numerator by a public denominator,
the number of CPU cycles for division in various environments varies depending on the inputs to the division, and
this variation appears within the range of numerators used in these libraries.
The KyberSlash pages were written by Daniel J. Bernstein. The FAQ originally said "I", but some people seemed to have trouble finding this authorship statement, so the FAQ now says "Bernstein" instead.
