comment Does ECIES imply authenticity?
By random number, I mean a random number that Alice picks when she sends the message.

comment Does ECIES imply authenticity?
When you do ECIES encryption, you don't use your public key -- instead, you pick a random number. Are you asking about a similar protocol where you use a public key there?

@Carmageddon: lets see if we can cut down the problem for you -- suppose that the blocks were 4 bits long, and you could ask for the decryption of 4 ciphertext blocks of your choice -- how would you proceed?
