comment Straightforward method for hampering frequency analysis on deterministic encryption
When you’re asking two very related questions that handle the same stuff, you might want to inter-link them: How feasible is word-level frequency analysis over English (or any language)?

comment How exactly does key whitening manage to increase security?
Still confused, just like @owlstead. But maybe we’re getting somewhere anyway -- Am I understanding the comments here correctly, that seem to imply the Wikipedia article actually explains “data-whitening” instead of “key-whitening” and is therefore titled wrong? If that’s the case, it would be nice if you could mention that in your answer because it would (a) explain my/our confusion and (b) make your answer complete enough to accept.

Please bear with me if my descriptions read a bit amateurish. I still have to learn most crypto terms.
