comment Which is more secure using a CSPRNG for a One-time pad, or AES?
@Thomas No, I just wanted to clarify my question based on the answers.

@poncho Ah, good advice. This is what happens when I get creative. I forget the fundamentals.

Thanks Simon. Good advice. Was not familiar with GCM but will do some research and see if I can find an implementation. Was going to use CBC.

@poncho The key and ciphertext are held by two different parties until the time comes for decryption. The objective for the encryption is to be sure neither party can decrypt the message without the other.

@CodesInChaos The keys will be stored on a sperate system. Obviously if the key is compromised then the system fails. That is true if I just use AES one time. Does nesting different algorithms help against cryptanalysis and brute force?

Hadn't considered hashing together CSPRNGs.

Like I said, I'm fine with overkill. Does combining Serpent and Rijndael like I'm describing improve the strength?

@PaĆ­loEbermann Prefer resistance to cryptanalysis as well as brute force. Updated question.
