comment Perfectly secret cipher can leak about the key?
Let me make sure I understand, you pad a message with random data, then encrypt with OTP. Leak the key bits that encrypt the padding?

comment Perfectly secret cipher can leak about the key?
@Joshua, if you know of a cipher that does leak key bits while still retaining perfect secrecy that can not easily be converted to a form that doesn't leak key information and is still informational theoretically secure, by all means, post it as an answer.

In any programming language, you can read them in to an array.

comment Is modern encryption needlessly complicated?
The security proof of OTP requires a true random pad. BBS does not meet this criteria.

No, use the entire master key for both, but use a different "message" for HMAC.

comment Using bcrypt derived keys for encryption?
First, the output of bcrypt is not a 248-bit key. It is 192-bit value encoded as base-64, which is why it is 248-bits. What are your requirements for the 512-bit key. Just that it is 512-bits long and uniformly distributed? Or do you require that it have a certain amount of entropy? Or is there something else? I'm assuming you are considering bcrypt and pbkdf2 so that brute force is slow. Is that correct?

Why not just run bcrypt twice with a different salt?

comment Can RSA signing be implemented on top of RSA encryption/decryption?
@Vlix, there may be some details about MS CryptoAPI I don't understand. Technically if you MS CryptoAPI can compute $m^d\bmod{N}$ for some specially chosen $m$ (e.g. padding(sha256(your message))) then it may be possible. I'll leave this as is to see if someone else can comment.
