Hash: SHA256

Here's an optimization:

* Assume you have a decent One Time Pad generator.

* Assume you have a secure pad delivery system.

* Assume it is reasonably low-latency and high-volume. Say somewhere between Usenet and the modern Internet.

Now then -- instead of sending the pads, send a message. It gets delivered with the same security as the pad, so it has identical security as using the OTP. Even better, you don't have to worry about insecurity of the OTP generator.
