I'm a passionate software engineering trying to understand it at a deeper level while working on my PhD at the CWI (Netherlands), where we try to improve the future using DSLs (checkout the Rascal - Meta Programming Language).

Languages I learned and still use: Rasal-MPL, C#, Java, Javascript, Ruby, C, C++, Matlab, LaTeX. (This list should be considered outdated when you're reading this ;-))

As a hobby I try to bridge our software to the physical world using arduino, read ebooks, and enjoy photography.

okay, thanks for the clarification. BTW I was thinking of using CBC, so I guess I should also send a random IV along? Or since I'm already making sure that each block is different the same IV could be used?

thanks for your elaborate answer, the only problem I see is with the counter reset during powerloss.. I could use the EEProm, but is is slow to write to and has a fairly low threshold for read/writes.. which would mean the memory would become corrupt...

ah, yes. I forgot to mention that I assume that if the attacker has physical access to the arduino/server than all bets are off.
