I was looking silver but found gold here.
- Enjoying the brilliant answers of the masters,
I usually upvote if an answer is clear and well-written, and question, too.
I enjoy all of Science, especially Mathematics, Cryptography, CS, Coding (started with self-learned BASIC), Photography, a little AI and Law.
Always Learning With Error, and not bounded by Polynomial Time
Worked as a researcher for the government for a while, left Cryptology, and decided to turn back...
- Kill the ECB mode;
- prefer AES-GCM or better AES-SIV which has security against nonce reuse.
- Prefer authenticated encryption
