comment Can machine learning analyze random number generator?
I have had this question myself from many months, eager to hear some one answering this !

comment Is there a format preserving cryptographically secure hash?
If hash preserves the length of the original string then it is just a permutation (like block cipher). Use a FPE algorithm to encrypt the input and throw the key, consider the ciphertext as your hash !

comment Encryption for a short packet size
Its based on fiestel networks which is very well studied in theory. the original paper was written some twenty years ago. ofcourse independent cryptanalysis is not yet done by anyone

comment what is it called when encrypt('a') + encrypt('a') == encrypt('aa')?
They are applied in general too. It is called "Partially Homomorphic Encryption" to be precise !

comment Can we quantify strength of encryption scheme ?
@JohnMeacham that would be too subjective, who qualifies to be schneier ? how would you experimentally verify such units ?

there are plenty , just search for "cryptanalysis genetic algorithms" on scholar.google.com
