For CPA security it is actually enough that the first scheme, i.e., $\pi = (gen, enc, dec)$ is CPA secure. Lets define the CPA game of a general scheme $\pi = (Gen, Enc, Dec)$ against an adversary $A$ as follows: We sample $(pk, sk) \leftarrow Gen(1^\lambda)$, and send $pk$ to $A$. $A$ outputs messages $m_0$ and $m_1$. We sample $b \leftarrow \{0,1\}$ (a ...

I am having a hard time understanding your argument why you think this could be simulated. However, here is an explanation of why it could not. Assume Bob is honest and has input $y$, now we have to simulate the view of Alice. As the simulator, as you state, we only get the input and output of Alice. I.e, we only know $x$ and $f(x,y)$. We only need to ...

Short answer, no. The 112-bit value is actually the security parameter, and not necessarily the key length. For all NIST hash functions, the security provided is half the output bit of the hash function, therefore SHA-224 or better is required for 112-bit security. The security parameter we are considering is collision resistance. However, there are other ...
