comment How do the following new (2013) ECC curves compare in security or efficiency?
@e-sushi I don't think "what properties would make a curve ideal" is a bad question per se, just for the sake of defining "ideal", but I agree with the close vote.

comment Can I crack an AES string if I have all these parameters?
Caweren I removed the "offending" content so it's a bit broader in scope. No one was going to decrypt this for you anyway. If you feel the edit is wrong for any reason, you can always roll back.

comment Is email an example of public-key cryptography?
As Neil stated, email is not an instance of PK crypto because anyone looking at the email in transit, or even your email provider, can see the message sent to you. Also there is no way to prove an email sent from you is indeed from you without a digital signature, but this line of reasoning quickly gets blurred by practical concerns. Until you introduce the concept of security or authentication, email is a better initial and intuitive analogy to PK crypto, in the sense that worse analogies (eg. box locked with two keys) are being used.

comment Pseudo Random Generator with fixed Hamming Weight
with a fixed Hamming weight I'm guessing fixed to a limit of $l$ to a given string $S$? You can generate a string of numbers of length $l$ and use them as an index of where in $S$ the changes will be made. The Hamming distance on its own (as you seem to use it in code) doesn't mean anything, it is a measure of difference of two strings. Apologies if I've missed something in your source code, I'm not familiar with that language.
