comment Should we MAC-then-encrypt or encrypt-then-MAC?
For personal/future reference: Encrypt-then-MAC = Encrypt the plaintext, MAC the ciphertext + iv then append it to the ciphertext. MAC-then-Encrypt = MAC the plaintext then append the MAC to the plaintext then Encrypt it all. Encrypt-and-MAC = Encrypt and MAC the plaintext then append the MAC onto the ciphertext.
