comment Advantage of AES(Rijndael) over Twofish and Serpent
@B-Con, Please clarify, what do you mean by "potentially" and "arguably simpler"?

comment Rijndael vs. Serpent vs. Twofish: General comparison
he article by Twofish creators state "Twofish has the most thoroughly explicated design of any AES candidate." Not saying it's right or wrong, but We would prefer a more neutral source, e.g. pdf @ crypto.stackexchange.com/a/5290/2373

comment Is AES-256 weaker than 192 and 128 bit versions?
Btw, your profile states that you are a cryptographer. What kind of cryptographer are you? Do you specialize in cryptanalysis?

comment What are the practical differences between 256-bit, 192-bit, and 128-bit AES encryption?
With all of infinity, everything will eventually fall. All other things being equal, a bigger number has the advantage of a bigger delay.

comment What is the lowest level of mathematics required in order to understand how encryption algorithms work?
You might want to elaborate what other kind of math is required besides XOR and OTP.....

comment What is the lowest level of mathematics required in order to understand how encryption algorithms work?
@LateralFractal, I don't think I quite get your point. Why would moving towards usability give rise to more complex mathematics?

comment What is the difference between known-plaintext attack and chosen-plaintext attack?
@Hendrik, So which encryption protects against chosen plaintext attack? Is that even possible?

comment Generating a secure random number in javascript
@CodesInChaos, Do you mind elaborating on that point? How could the entropy be increased by mere hashing?

comment Is Diffie-Hellman mathematically the same as RSA?
So... which is stronger? Which is more unlikely to be broken?
