comment Preventing Quantum Attacks on Cryptography
@IlmariKaronen I voted to close as a duplicate the other way: I find both the earlier question and its existing answers a better landing point. I flagged for merging.

comment What is Initialization vector (IV)
@SteveSether This is not an attack and not a matter of skill level. Basic questions are fine. But “what is X?” when X can be looked up in an reference which is obviously discoverable, easily accessed and known to be reliable is at best a waste of time to copy the article from said reference. Questions like “I read the Wikipedia article and I don't understand this point: …” are perfectly fine, no matter how basic they are.
