comment A timestamping authority (digital notary)
Not exactly helpful, but you can try to stack type 0x40 PGP signature packets together in one PGP key. Problem is, I don't know of any implementation that creates type 0x40 keys.

comment Where i can find an AES implementation in python?
What do you mean by reviewed? Tested with the NIST CMVP? I can provide a pure python AES implementation, but its just a learning tool, not meant for actual usage

comment Example Rainbow Table Generation
@ponsfonze So should I just take the first 5 nibbles and hash that? what reduction functions do real rainbow table programs use? what makes any particular reduction function contain all values from 0 to 99999... ?

comment Example Rainbow Table Generation
@ponsfonze I'm not looking for an explanation of what a reduction function is or does. I'm looking for a FUNCTION. I have no idea what a good choice a function (or multiple functions) for a rainbow function is. I will be using c++ or python

comment Example Rainbow Table Generation
no... it says: The idea is to define a reduction function R that maps hash values back into values in P. any specific function R? Should I just use the ASCII version of a hash output and send it back into the hash?
