If you take a convergent encryption algorithm and replace the hash $H$ used to derive the key with HMAC-H, keyed with a secret key $k'$, does the resulting algorithm provide you with deterministic ...
In ECIES and similar schemes, is it possible to use a hash of the plaintext as the IV?
I’m implementing the RFC 6979 procedure to compute a message signature. I want to test my program on the secp256k1 elliptic curve. Note the “k” in secp256k1, i.e. the Koblitz curve. If you have the ...
