comment Choice of authenticated encryption mode for whole messages
@e-sushi The GCM spec may be biased when it comes to painting the benefits of GCM against other modes. In my experience, the Galois multiplication is very tricky to implement, especially because of the pre-compuetd tables necessary to speed it up and the awkward bit ordering. As Adam Langley puts it "GCM is fundamentally unsuitable for software implementation". EAX is a more straightforward combination of CTR and OMAC.

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.
