Generate ChaCha20 stream for the given 32-byte key and 8-byte or 12-byte nonce and write it into dst and return it.
Never use the same key and nonce to generate more than one stream.
If nonceInplaceCounterLength is not 0, it behaves the same with respect to the nonce as described in the streamXOR documentation.
stream is like streamXOR with all-zero src.
Encrypt src with ChaCha20 stream generated for the given 32-byte key and 8-byte (as in original implementation) or 12-byte (as in RFC7539) nonce and write the result into dst and return it.
dst and src may be the same, but otherwise must not overlap.
If nonce is 12 bytes, users should not encrypt more than 256 GiB with the same key and nonce, otherwise the stream will repeat. The function will throw error if counter overflows to prevent this.
If nonce is 8 bytes, the output is practically unlimited (2^70 bytes, which is more than a million petabytes). However, it is not recommended to generate 8-byte nonces randomly, as the chance of collision is high.
Never use the same key and nonce to encrypt more than one message.
If nonceInplaceCounterLength is not 0, the nonce is assumed to be a 16-byte array with stream counter in first nonceInplaceCounterLength bytes and nonce in the last remaining bytes. The counter will be incremented inplace for each ChaCha block. This is useful if you need to encrypt one stream of data in chunks.
