comment Reversing DJB2 Hashes
If you can do that, then you should have said so, since your reverse algorithm doesn't. $\hspace{.95 in}$

comment Reversing DJB2 Hashes
This is an alternative to your algorithm (and one that actually accounts for $\hspace{1.9 in}$ r being implicitly modded by $2^{32}$). $\;$

comment True Random Number Generator by milliseconds per keystroke (TRNG-Kms)
@xorcoder : $\;\;\;$ His previous comment does say that "CSPRNG is a subclass $\hspace{1.74 in}$ of PRNG and was of course implied.". $\;\;\;\;\;\;\;$

comment Probability that two different files can have same MD5 hash for both an unencrypted and encrypted version (AES256, same key between files)
@marstato : $\:$ In fact, AES25 is even less precise than AES256. $\;\;\;\;$

comment True Random Number Generator by milliseconds per keystroke (TRNG-Kms)
er, I guess the last of those papers isn't actually helpful, since your data probably doesn't have that much entropy. $\:$ I would recommend using one of the middle paper's algorithms, since it seems likely to me that randomish key-presses would behave as a small-space source. $\;\;\;\;$

But, but, how is that supposed to help you figure out which values of C to investigate? $\;$

comment Is MAC-then-encrypt with stream ciphers secure?
The problem is 1; an attacker must never see authenticated plaintext. $\;$

comment Why is MAC using nonce+message+hash(nonce+message+identifier) not the standard?
@otus : $\:$ If "message" means plaintext rather than ciphertext, then that's right. $\hspace{1.67 in}$
