I like crypto. Need I say more?

comment RSA 896 vs 1024 vs 2048 in Javascript?
Why are you not using RSA for key exchange and then use symmetric encryption for confidentiality and integrity?

What secret sharing technique are you using? Shamir?

comment Question about the definition of a perfect cipher
@PaŭloEbermann correct and important since the keyspace is larger than the ciphertext space. I'll fix it.

P.S., you are correct in your probability. Try applying Bayes rule.

Welcome to Crypto.SE. I hope you find the site useful. Is this homework? If so, we allow homework questions, but expect you to describe what you have tried that hasn't worked, etc. See here.

comment How to develop a public key cryptosystem based on a hard problem?
I think what we are seeing here is that there is no set process for taking a hard problem and turning it into a public key cryptosystem. I agree with DrLecter that you probably need to post more details here about your specific problem before we can help.

comment Why do authors say conflicting things regarding leak-free stages in their paper?
I think they are saying assuming leak free is necessary to prove security for their protocol, but it woul be really cool (thus an open problem) to design a protocol that can tolerate leaks in any stage.

comment XOR secret sharing scheme
if $a=a_1\oplus a_2\oplus\dots\oplus a_n$, if you have less than $n$ shares you cannot reconstruct $a$. Are you sure you aren't wanting shamir secret sharing?

with xor secret sharing $t=n$, no?

comment XOR secret sharing scheme
I don't think you can with xor sharing. You could with additive secret sharing or shamir secret sharing. You can certainly get the xor of a and b.

@DrLecter you should write that up as an answer.
