# Questions tagged as ['message-recovery']

I AM an amateur (for some reason, I have originaly written "I am not"... embarassing, sorry) in cryptography so this might be a very basic question.

I am interested to know if there exist ciphers such that if I encrypt a message with it and then lose first say 300 bits then I can't recover any information from the message even if I have the decryption key?

My problem is basically that I don't have a ...

As we know, ECC using $C_2 = r \cdot G, C_1 = M + r \cdot G$; and decrypt with $M=C_1 - K \cdot C_2$. And sign using point $X$: $X = k \cdot G(x_0,y_0)$. $r = x_0 \cdot K; s = 1 / k \cdot (M + r \cdot d) \mod(n)$; here $d$ is private key, $K$ is public key. and then verify by is true of $r \cdot G == M \cdot G / s + x \cdot K/s$.

Here is my question: can I encrypt using private key (or sign) and ...
