comment Multi cipher CTR
why silly? In order to break this, one would have to break all ciphers.

yes, in essence that's it

It's never the same block, it's the next block ...

comment Multi cipher CTR
You misunderstood... they is only one IV, the first cipher encrypts it and xors the result to the first block of plaintext, the second cipher encrypts iv+1 and xors that in the next block of plaintext

comment Multi cipher CTR
cipher 1 is used with key one to encrypt the IV, this is xored with the first block of plaintext, then cipher 2 is used with key 2 and IV+1, then cipher 3 then back to cipher 1... do you understand this ?

If this is a secure mode of operation? Using 3 cipher like this

comment Encrypting the same message using different schemes
if E1 and E2 are both IND-CPA then that combination should also be IND-CPA

That would be bad ... as it might open the encryption to a related key attack...

Both, as I recall they mean the same thing...

comment IV's from Crypto++ AutoSeededRNG always ends the same: Problem with the PRNG?
Man, I don't believe your encryption scheme is secure at all... Where are you using the prepended IV? It seems to me you're just adding it , and encrypting with an all 0 IV and then discarding it.. but not using it anywhere

Your iv storing method requires double encryption, right?

comment Enhance CSPRNG output
How to determine if two PRNG are independent? I am thinking about using the default apple PRNG secCopyRandomBytes and the AutoSeeded RNG from the Botan library? How do I know that both of them don't do similar things inside?

I have tryed this with the secCopyRandomBytes RNG from apple ... the same result ...the hex/base64 has a fixed string at the end

I like your prepend the IV to the ciphertext method. In the debugger it shows the iv as a 16 byte random array. So the stuff at the end appears when it's converted to hex/base64... but I need it in that format so I can write it in a text file...
