Not "either/or" this is both a half-baked article, AND the authors have no idea what they are doing security-wise anyway. It is very hard to believe that this system introduces INTENTIONAL collisions in the name of efficiency. They have just broken their implementation of AES. Congratulations, rsyncrypto, your modified CBC mode takes the cake as bad idea gone wrong.
