Are there known practical attacks on RC4-dropN? [duplicate]

RC4 is known to leak information about the first few bytes of the ciphertext due to keystream biases. However, are there known attacks on RC4-drop[N] where N is large enough, that leak information ...

Is TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA still a secure cipher to use? [duplicate]

I have read numerous times that the RC4 cipher itself is considered broken in TLS. Still many websites are using the TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA configuration even to date. Now, I know that sometimes ...

How much stronger is RC4 if it is keyed with an RSA private key?

My idea is to generate a RSA 2048 bit key and use RC4 with the private RSA key to encrypt a stream of data. RC4 is weak because RC4 keys are small, 256-bit. But when we use RC4 with private RSA 2048 ...
