comment Diffusion in Shamir's secret sharing scheme
Thanks, I didn't know about CSS. Yet, I think you response does not explain the behaviour of ssss' code. In that case, the secret is still smaller than each share. In addition to that, the transformation I see being applied is not really an encryption. It is just a fixed permutation.

I replaced p with q to avoid confusion.

Probably not. One example is McOE though I don't know its patent status and it may not have been reviewed long enough yet.

comment How to renew keys for a statically-encrypted database
@brent-longborough If you are sure 100% sure your nonce does not repeat (it does not necessarily needs to be random) GCM is perfectly fine and as good as SIV, with the benefit that you need just 1 AES key. GCM is quite difficult to implement in software though. If your security module does not support it already, maybe you could consider CCM and EAX: they are much simpler (EAX especially) but as secure as GCM.
