comment Recover plaintext from truncated ciphertext using AES for FPE
Why are you decrypting using AES ? AES_decrypt is never needed ! may be that is the reason you are not able to recover, share the code on pastebin.com or so , its easier that way for us to tell

Feistel networks with AES as PRF is the popular and well studied approach for Format Preserving

comment Format Preserving Encryption for 32 or 64 bit plaintext values
am curious which PRF should be used ? What would be the impact on security and performance. doing the above.

@pg1989 Voltage claims patents on BPS mode too , check this link voltage.com/technology/patents-research

@Tim, To best of our knowledge there aren't any standards apart from NIST's FFX modes which are patented. Yes we did analyze FastPRP, these techniques work on very tiny spaces less than 16 bits , they tend to be expensive for 32 bits and above although we dont have bench marked results

Would suggest, you spend some more time on various modes. and find out which suits your application

comment Does this guarantee a unique 32 bit Hash?
@otus 20934 is the minimum i could get for MD5 , for SHA-256 it was more than 70k, just pull the code in any IDE eclipse or intellij and run it even on CLI .

@otus hardly few nano seconds may be . the program quickly exits. Even if i remove the "Hello" part. you can try it yourself its easy

@mikeazo not sure if you have noticed, it is not for entire MD5 but the tweaked version mentioned above, code is here pastebin.com/fZ1LR9as

i have written a bruteforce approach for MD5 in java for the above and i get collisions much sooner than 65536 limit which is 2^16. with SHA-256 am not getting the same
