comment Physical analogue for MACs
+1. The only thing this doesn't capture is the avalanche effect, whereby a small change to the contents of the delivery doesn't lead to a large (or any) change to the representation of the delivery (the delivery note). The description could be any representation of the contents, e.g. photographs, textual, a wax model...

Let us know what your lab says.

comment What current authenticated key exchange standards exist?
Thanks Ricky, but I'm now specifically looking for standards (NIST, ISO, IETF,...), not just proposals in the literature.

comment Using a Hash as a secure PRNG
Reseeding and support for arbitrary output lengths are some of the reasons why the specification for Hash_DRBG is longer than your specification, which is why I pointed them out.

rework questin to focus on what standards are available and currently considered secure

revised When truncating an AES MAC value by “w” , how do I justify that “w” is still negligible?
incorporate reference, restore (modified) conclusion

comment Is it possible to anonymize web traffic so that the IP Address cannot be determined while still being able to determine distinct IPs?
The deterministic encryption scheme doesn't meet the first requirement - given an IP address, an attacker can compute the ciphertext and then determine what requests came from that address.
