comment Definition of a CSPRNG
Some definitions of CSPRNG also include immediate recovery, so even if the state is compromised, the random data bytes pulled from the CSPRNG will be still random from fresh entropy.

comment Cryptographic Challenge: How to Say Something Confidentially to Snowden?
You missed a fundamental constraint - not that the FBI can impersonate Snowden, but that the FBI can impersonate you. If we can assume that we can't be impersonated, than this is easy..

comment Estimating bits of entropy
Well actually, I want to get very rich. That is really my XY problem. But for now, I guess this is an interesting problem. Even if it doesn't end up solving the other one.

No, I can't. I really want to simply estimate entropy.
