comment Seemingly simple decryption question
Although this question is possibly about breaking cryptography, there is too little information to answer it from a cryptographic perspective. It could be a valid question about reverse engineering in general, for which a potential venue would be Reverse Engineering.

comment Simple proof that shows AES is not a uniform permutation on any n-bit string?
@D.W. While this thread is surely related, I don't understand how it answers this question. What does it mean for a specific permutation to be uniform anyway?

comment Security implication of exporting private key
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about tools that happens to be using cryptography, not about the underlying cryptography itself. Since it is about the security properties of these tools, it would be best on Information Security.

comment Advantages of 64-bit CPU smartphone
Actually, there is probably a technical basis for that statement: ARMv8 processors introduce both 64-bit general registers and hardware acceleration for AES and SHA-{1,2}. But the two are not correlated.
