comment RSA: how does it work and how is it more secure than symmetric systems
You state in your question "how RSA is more secure than AES then". Sounds to me like you are asking for a comparison. If that is not your intent, I suggest you clarify the question.

comment RSA: how does it work and how is it more secure than symmetric systems
Comparing RSA to AES in terms of security is like comparing apples and oranges. They have very different benefits and use cases and are often used in conjunction, not as competitors.

comment Automated testing of cipher security for import/export compliance
Is your question something like this "given a set of formally specified regulations derived from law, can we verify that cryptographic cipher X (given it's mathematical representation or it's source code, or whatever, you should specify this), meets these regulations?"

FYI, on page 98, it says $C$ in $\{0,1,2\}$, not $[0,2]$.

Please do not cross-post questions on multiple sites. Even if it fits on multiple. Only post on one.

-1, while the answer may be contained in here, it is not obvious. A good answer should be clear and concise.
