Excellent write up!

So now I'm curious about something. Did you happen to come across the proposed RSA alternatives for asymmetrical key pairs that use things like EC25519 in order to move away from NSA created standards? If so, what was your take?

ECC curves are far from what I know at this time.. If your question was about how to don't use NSA standards (like AES), I would use something like 3DES, former competitor of AES before AES was declared as the US government's standard.
