Your ideas intrigue me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

Can you describe in a bit more detail (perhaps in a new thread) how
stitching together a Frankenstein's creation from this collection of
protocols would work, and how it would be deployed?

And what about the edge vulnerability to these same tagging and/or
timing attacks? Data's gotta get into this mess somehow, and come

Do free reference implementations exist for all of these protocols?
