No, RSA encryption does not provide authenticity, regardless of the padding. This is for the simple reason that anybody can encrypt with the public key. This is irrespective of the asymmetric algorithm used. You need to sign the data to obtain authenticity. What AEAD does do is to protect e.g. against padding oracle attacks. These can be performed on CBC ...

Unfortunately, symmetric encryption do not provide integrity and digital signature functions. This is because symmetric encryption uses the same key for exncryption and decryption. This means that any who owns the decryption key can alter the data and no one will notice that the data is altered, because the same key was used for encryption. This means that ...
