@noloader no worries. I wasn't sure so I clarified just in case - you never know.

@Clément I have had a go at explaining the difference via a separate question, see crypto.stackexchange.com/q/15485/46 - feel free to ask for clarification there :)

@clement it is a good point although I don't think you'd use a mac for identity verification... but there are definitely those who disagree that encrypt-then-mac is the best solution and their arguments are very very valid too.
