    Prevent over long nonces in ChaCha20-Poly1305
    ChaCha20-Poly1305 is an AEAD cipher, and requires a unique nonce input for
    every encryption operation. RFC 7539 specifies that the nonce value (IV)
    should be 96 bits (12 bytes). OpenSSL allows a variable nonce length and
    front pads the nonce with 0 bytes if it is less than 12 bytes. However it
    also incorrectly allows a nonce to be set of up to 16 bytes. In this case
    only the last 12 bytes are significant and any additional leading bytes are
    It is a requirement of using this cipher that nonce values are unique.
    Messages encrypted using a reused nonce value are susceptible to serious
    confidentiality and integrity attacks. If an application changes the
    default nonce length to be longer than 12 bytes and then makes a change to
    the leading bytes of the nonce expecting the new value to be a new unique
    nonce then such an application could inadvertently encrypt messages with a
    reused nonce.
    Additionally the ignored bytes in a long nonce are not covered by the
    integrity guarantee of this cipher. Any application that relies on the
    integrity of these ignored leading bytes of a long nonce may be further
    Any OpenSSL internal use of this cipher, including in SSL/TLS, is safe
    because no such use sets such a long nonce value. However user
    applications that use this cipher directly and set a non-default nonce
    length to be longer than 12 bytes may be vulnerable.
