comment Is it practical to use a stream cipher in a block cipher mode?
No, since stream ciphers are very different from block ciphers. $\;$

comment Huffman encoding of hashes
How about a base-256 encoding? $\:$ (aka, not encoded at all) $\;\;\;\;$

comment Huffman encoding of hashes
They can be encoded with just 20 characters. $\;$

comment Huffman encoding of hashes
No, but getting farther away from that requires more output for a given security level. $\hspace{1.41 in}$

comment Hard-core predicates: should the adversary be given $1^n$?
$B$ can just run $A$ with $n$ ranging from $0$ to $\:2\hspace{-0.03 in}\cdot \hspace{-0.03 in}\operatorname{length}(\hspace{.03 in}y)\:$,$\:$ since injective functions have negligible probability of shrinking random inputs by large amounts. $\;\;\;\;$

comment Hash length extension attack - SHA256 to 512 - impossible, correct?
Of course, it would probably be better is the user can see a commitment to the secret instead of the SHA256 hash of the secret, and if the user-key is then HMACed with the secret instead of them being hashed with SHA512. $\;$
