comment What is the “derive” key usage?
Are you able to provide the OID of the key usages (e.g. 1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.1)

comment At what level of abstraction should a developer work with with regards to cryptography?
Obfuscation has it's place but not everywhere is the right place. Equally obfuscation can decrease internal understanding of a configuration by the people who run it, this increases the risk of error, which decreases security over time and also reduces the ability to detect security events of interest.

comment Fingerprinting Hash Function
@cryptopathe Sorry if this was unclear. The questions has been updated. The intension was to use the resulting output as a key (in addition to message verification) if it is impractical that a key collision will occur. The purpose of adding additional data was to reduce the dataset that may produce the same hash output.

comment “Double hashing” with 2 different hash functions
To clarify, 2 to the power of 256 is permutations of the hash function output not the input.
