comment Asymmetric cipher with multiple public keys
@RickyDemer Why ask me here and not there? Anyway: so what? I only changed the title and the tags. I shrunk the very long title to the main point of the question, which is that it isn't enough to specify the password and “AES” in order to have compatible tools. If the IV was the only variable, all tools would be compatible in practice since they pretty much always prepend the IV to the ciphertext.

Your question is incomprehensible. What encryption scheme is used?

comment Why don't we have hardware generate NON-pseudo, but REAL random numbers from meta-stable flip-flops?
“Why don't we…” This question doesn't make sense since we do. All current high-end processors on smartphones and PC include a hardware RNG, based on flip-flops or other unstable physical process. Note that unlike what you claim in your question, a hardware RNG is good for seeding a PRNG but a PRNG is necessary to get unbiased output. Also unlike what you claim in your question, the problem with a PRNG is not brute-force attacks against the algorithm (quantum or not), but poor seeding that the adversary can reproduce.
