There is an effort to allow C# to produce deterministic builds with Roslyn. This allows you to verify that the source matches the binary. While they are not there yet you can see the progress at https://github.com/dotnet/roslyn/issues/372 Why is this important? The ability to identically reproduce builds is of increasing importance and visibility ...


For a cipher each key defines a different permutation, but that doesn't mean that there cannot be identical 1:1 relations. Take AES-256, which maps 2^128 values to another 2^128 values using a 256 bit key and you encrypt one 16 byte plaintext, say all zero's. The output will also have 2^128 values. So there must be keys that map the same plaintext to the ...
