comment Is there a simple hash function that one can compute without a computer?
Perhaps when we find a good hand hash, we could also use it for generating site-specific passwords which can be executed in my own head?.

comment Do I have to recompute all hashes if I change the work factor in bcrypt?
@PaŭloEbermann: Ah, right -- some password hash functions allow one to "continue", but not bcrypt.

comment What is the difference between a stream cipher and a one-time-pad?
The one-time pad and Venona project articles say that the USSR and a few other organizations heavily used physical pads of random-looking letters called one-time pads. I think it's pretty likely that practically all of those pads were, in fact, generated with a 100% physical RNG, although I don't really have any evidence one way or another. I suspect that we may never know exactly how those pads were generated.
