comment How can we reason about the cryptographic capabilities of code-breaking agencies like the NSA or GCHQ?
Your comment seems to ignore ECHELON, where the US co-operated with UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada, to monitor telephone (and other) communications. ECHELON was implicated in a number of government level industrial espionage events. The US happily joined ECHELON, despite the risk to their own country's industrial privacy.

comment Is modern encryption needlessly complicated?
The op's use of the word simply in the sentence "Simply generate a random string with length m where m is at least as large as n," made me laugh. :-)
