comment Mapping points between elliptic curves and the integers
Thanks! This is useful. Hopefully accepting this answer won't discourage other answers for other types of curves (e.g. ones that are not supersingular—Telex for example relies on DDH.)

comment Are any of the major asymmetric ciphers distinguishable (EG, RSA, ECC)?
For a fixed plaintext and key pair, we can consider three sets: (1) invalid ciphertexts: numbers/bitstrings that are of the wrong form, (2) plausible ciphertexts: numbers of the right form but do not necessarily decrypt to the plaintext, (3) actual ciphertext(s): the set of ciphertexts that actually decrypt to the plaintext with the key. What I am addressing in my answer is your ability to tell (2) and (3) apart and what I omitted, which may clarify, is telling them apart without the secret key using today's level of computational ability. They can be distinguished with unlimited computation.
