comment Encrypting a key with the same key
Thank you for the comment. I understand your point. I was trying to see what happens in a case when key is the same as the message (unintentional). For example, if I have something like this: key = Random(); message = Random(); cipherText = aes_encrypt(key, message). assume that both key and message are from the same space (size 2 ^ 128). The probability of key = message is very low, but wanted to understand if such a case happens, will the system be considered insecure.
