Create binary represented state array (as the initial input to the sponge function (f)) from any length character array (N) with width (b=1600), digest length (d=224) and lane size (w=64) using SHA-3 Standard:
Convert character array to binary representation using UTF-8 value of each character. Output state array will be a matrix with size (5,5,64). Padding in accordance with the standard is required. XOR of the rate bits (r) with the padded message stream is required.
