revised Flaw in the security definition of *Stateful* Authenticated Encryption?
Complete rewrite of the question, removing the distracting notion of length-hiding, and focusing on a different then previously.

comment For a one-time pad, which MAC method is information-theoretically secure?
@lightspeeder Note that all the attacks mentioned in that paper are based on real-world schemes where the key is reused for many messages. I suggested a one-time polynomial MAC's for which none of these attacks apply. Since you have already insisted on using a one-time pad for encryption, why not for the MAC as well?

comment For a one-time pad, which MAC method is information-theoretically secure?
Why do you insist on using HMAC as your authentication mechanism? And more importantly, do you really need to use a one-time pad? Anyway, if unconditional security is your goal for integrity, why not go with a one-time polynomial-based MAC?

comment Any field in a PKI certificate where some text info can be stored?
You are probably aware of this already, bu the nsComments extension is also deprecated according to the OpenSSL docs: "The following extensions are non standard, Netscape specific and largely obsolete. Their use in new applications is discouraged."

comment The difference between these 4 breaking Cipher techniques?
[About CPA]: "this is the strongest type of attack possible". This is false. CCA is a stronger attack model than CPA. Furthermore, there exists attack models even stronger than CCA, for instance related-key models.

Regarding applying unpadded RSA, that's already answered here: crypto.stackexchange.com/a/10155/1772

comment Question about Fermat's little theorem
@Alex For the left-to-right implication in the first equivalence to hold true, you should probably add that $p \nmid a$.
