trinque: what's imagining a conversation with someone else but conjuring up another being, just like "I"
trinque: and I smacked 'em when they were having a conversation with their head-spirits just as I do here
adlai: several of the productions were musicals, so involved lots of choreography rehearsals. it's quite strange how distanced I've become from what I actually, in retrospect, spent a significant fraction of my life doing.
adlai: definitely was, from 4th through 12th grade; including semesters where theatre rehearsals counted as 'sports' credit for the students.
adlai: yet the logs are littered with my recent attempts to have anything remotely resembling real-time conversation using a similar point-by-point process.
asciilifeform: gpg: Signature made Sun 06 Dec 2020 08:54:11 PM EST using RSA key ID B877BC3C
adlai did recently register a few fleanode spammles, although they are all one-man ghost towns, due to neither buying spam, nor encouraging conversation.
verisimilitude: Sure, and this conversation is just atoms, but some models lose their usefulness at a point.
adlai: this CO was one of that rare breed of human who can fall asleep standing up in mid conversation, while ~he~ is talking to ~you~!
asciilifeform: imho any proposal for glorious coin-of-the-fyootoor gotta be not significantly more complicated than rsa
asciilifeform ftr does not expect magical techno-pill 'against soroses', bitcoin or otherwise, to be effective alone. imho is lunacy to expect even universal pill against cockroaches, much less soroses.
asciilifeform: mats: observe that already nothing keeps e.g. mats from signing asciilifeform's pubkey, and vice-versa. w/out any need to designate one or the other as 'authority'
billymg: could just be wishful thinking on my part but i do think it has some advantages for them. they avoid the mess of having to go door-to-door and they placate a small but potentially adversarial part of the population
snsabot: (trilema) 2016-12-11 phf: goes back to our conversation about "why you no respect ptacek". since their opinions are not hinged on any deliberately lived experience, they change them according to fashions. if you happen to be fashion aligned you'll think that they are geniuses, but as soon as you start doing your own thing, you realize just how superficial they are
cgra: the stage 2 didn't work for me as is, because texinfo seems to depend on help2man, *and* vice versa
snsabot: Logged on 2020-12-04 09:29:42 gregorynyssa: I was reading some of the old logs. this conversation was remarkable: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2015-06-24
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-12-04#1025855 << ~which~ conversation ? you linked to a date w/ almost MB of log...
gregorynyssa: I was reading some of the old logs. this conversation was remarkable: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2015-06-24
BingoBoingo: I strongly suspect there's an embargo on shooting them down. "Never interrupt enemy while they are making a mistake" and all that. F35 program has to have cost the US far more than any possible benefit that could be derived and... what real adversary would want to interrupt that
BingoBoingo: But yeah, they pretty much ruined the F35 for all the folks paying more and hoping to use it against real adversaries later
thimbronion: BingoBoingo: ok. My theory as stated doesn't stand then. I'll just mumble something to myself about Iraq not being a *real* adversary or something.
BingoBoingo: Funny enough, when I sent her off and stopped having her in the apartment three days a week... the quality of my Spanish conversation partners began a rapid climb
BingoBoingo has really just been filtering like hell early in the conversations that follow from setting up baits in addition to brute the brute force searches.
BingoBoingo: Really I have been missing these sorts of conversations that put venom in Qntra, and I have been working to recreate that sort of environment irl to so far mixed yet promising results
BingoBoingo: Grinding out conversations, a lot of trends were hard not to notice. Young black men who had ever had a taste of productive employment loved Trumpism if not Trump the man.
BingoBoingo between April and today has had a five figure number of conversations with strangers, mostly living in the zone.
asciilifeform sees it -- the earlier skip not happens, and the low byte + keyid end up 'rsa packet'
cgra: this 'rsa packet' isn't used either, just another skip
cgra: asciilifeform: it aligns, because you have this 'rsa packet' to cover up the lack of skip. it reads the remaining byte of the two-byte length field and finishes the skip job
cgra: and from then on, just happens to align. 'rsa packet' helps in this accidental alignment, but it remains a mystery to me, why this piece exists in the code
asciilifeform: cgra: i get , via ./litmus.sh asciilifeform.peh ffa_w_borrow_expr.kv.vpatch.asciilifeform.sig ffa_w_borrow_expr.kv.vpatch : VALID GPG RSA signature from asciilifeform <stas@loper-os.org>
cgra: in 'ffa_w_borrow_expr.kv.vpatch.asciilifeform.sig' the 'rsa packet' coincides with a unhashed sub-packet section. the two hash bytes and a signature section comes after that
asciilifeform: cgra: the 'rsa packet' is what in pgpdump is labeled e.g. 'RSA m^d mod n(2048 bits)'
asciilifeform: ( litmus specifically specced to work exclusively with rsa signatures; and such as were produced by gpg 1.4.x . )
asciilifeform: cgra: per rfc, it aint : the rfc supports not only rsa. but i explicitly did not.
cgra: right. do you still think the 'rsa packet' is a proper label for the section?
cgra: well, pgpdump says the unhashed sub-section contains one item "issuer key id". but litmus labels this unhashed sub-section "rsa packet", which doesn't parse in my head
cgra: per rfc4880, unhashed sub-packet section length should be 2 bytes, not 1. and so far i couldn't figure out what 'rsa packet' could mean here. litmus.sh appears to work as long as signature's unhashed sub-packet section is shorter than 256 bytes
cgra: 2) i'm comparing litmus.sh to rfc4880, and i fail to get a match: this 'rsa packet' coincides with signature's unhashed sub-packet section when the section is less than 256 bytes long. in part, it's because the unhashed section length is read as a 1-byte value, and yields 0 (the high byte).
shinohai: i gaffed asciilifeform i just need to use fg unit i *do* have to create new rsa key. have old key for deedbot as it is currently.
shinohai: cgra http://btc.info.gf/gpg/rsa/shinohai.peh
trinque: cgra: yes, use an RSA key, and there are key-length discussions in the old logs to be found.
asciilifeform: cgra: atm trinque's wot system is strictly rsa, afaik.
cgra: asciilifeform: i mean, i thought i'd learn some rsa etc first, to be able to decide what's 'good enough'. in case i have more choices avail than the current wot people had at their registration time
shinohai: I promise not to send trannies here to celebrate you anniversary and scam you like I did in trilema asciilifeform. ^.^
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-11-08#1024544 << some form of this is The Right Thing. but imho the naive algorithm would be very frustrating to use -- erryone will hear a great many fragments of conversations, where the participants have disjoint wots
asciilifeform prolly doomed to write one. unfortunately much moar gnarlier job than the udp lib. and sadly asciilifeform deeply mired in saecular matters atm, in efforts to get moarsaeculardough
asciilifeform: afaik, rsa is the bottleneck, in just about any conceivable sane routing scheme.
trinque: in practice all of us had a full copy of the whole conversation through the entire "republic"
gregorynyssa: verisimilitude: coincidentally I had the same conversation with asciilifeform two months ago. have a look at: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-08-22#1020105
verisimilitude: I'm going to answer yes, but it may not be so relevant to this particular conversation; I encourage anyone to read it, however.
cgra: i suppose in the long run, shouldn't hurt to exercise my brain though (for reading versatility), asciilifeform have any idea from where did this model of thinking got stuck?
gregorynyssa: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-08-12#1018765 << I just found out that David Graeber passed away a few weeks after we had this conversation.
adlai: old conversation of tangential relevance, for anyone catching up half a decade after the fact; distinct from, although not unrelated to, the dust-band radio
adlai: and all ~irrelevant, since the market is saturated, and nobody is exactly flooding me with offers to oversaturate it!
adlai: I mean "dirty word" in the sense that this conversation included FFA, just a few screenfulls ago, so 'prove' means much more than just "screenshot of my account; screenshot of friend's account; look, exchange is scammer!"
snsabot: (trilema) 2015-04-09 ascii_field: what he did was, essentially, steal a usg mega-product - macsyma, the first really universal computer algebra system, thousands of man-years of
verisimilitude: So, trinque, I've not seen any direct thoughts on my MMC since our conversation; care to share those thoughts?
asciilifeform: gpg: Signature made Mon 07 Sep 2020 12:13:49 PM EDT using RSA key ID FAB953C4
verisimilitude: I figured it was in poor taste to partake in the conversation; had it not come so swiftly after adlai's announcement, I likely wouldn't've bothered with it, asciilifeform.
BingoBoingo: <thimbronion> Bring back dueling! << This conversation seems likely to happen here. Dueling here only ended rather recently
asciilifeform: i'm not universally 'for' or 'against' any of these. but defo 'for' truth-in-marketing.
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-08-22#1020096 << re (1) -- if you aint a credentialed academic, or multimillion-$ donor, the conversation ends up ~very~ short.
asciilifeform: welcome to #a btw, Aerthean. plz consider sitting long enuff to have conversation...
edef: i have considered similar concepts in terms of playing with representation, and am enjoying seeing others write about it (i have never really had a blog, conversations are a much more natural medium to me)
asciilifeform must bbl, but will come back. edef don't hesitate to speak, i'ma answer in the log later. (is large part of why public logs are valuable. can have conversations that span years, if necessary.)
edef: my current best shot at finding IRC conversations is ripgrep through text files, i haven't got any full-text indexing on that
edef: asciilifeform: for example, i am not meaningfully opposed to Signal's timed disappearing messages — they establish a shared context where the ephemerality of the conversation is mutually understood
asciilifeform: briefly revisiting this crackpottery -- it occurs to asciilifeform that 'streaming' oughta be ultra-simple to p2pize -- simply transmit hash(next frame) w/ each frame, starting from 1st. (and, if you like, rsa-sign the 1st.)
asciilifeform: shinohai: it was from iron poverty that rsa did not catch on, even in 'golden toilet' circles, until '90s..
asciilifeform: ( nor bothers to discuss for ~what~ one might want a microcomp in the imagined apocalyptic hellscape. you can't productively rsa on z80 ( asciilifeform tried ) . so wat's left ? one last game of tetris before you eat yer .45 ? )
snsabot: Logged on 2020-07-24 17:24:58 verisimilitude: I once had a conversation, longer back, about how burdensome current machines make it to account for all failure cases, to be told roughly ``Who wants to write a program that works correctly in all instances?'' by a proud C programmer.

mats: i miss reading the regular conversations between you and mp, it was a weekly thing for me
asciilifeform: whaack: btw on some linuxen ssh client defaults to rsa, on others -- not (and also depends on config in /etc)
whaack: hm weird i get an rsa fingerprint when i ssh with one computer and an ecdsa fingerprint when i ssh with another
asciilifeform: whaack: i'ma send you rsa fp shortly. ( after you get in, i assume will want to regen keys anyway, and use whichever you prefer )
whaack: asciilifeform: You sent me an ecdsa fingerprint and i see an rsa fingerprint, is there a way to switch my local ssh to see the ecdsa fingerprint?
asciilifeform: gregorynyssa: esp. given that fleanode/usg logs universally.
snsabot: Logged on 2020-06-23 17:33:47 adlai: incidentally, one of the most interesting conversations that I ever overheard was between two young israelis who were speaking modern hebrew with american ebonic inflection!
shinohai: gpg: encrypted with RSA key, ID 73708B0E No secret key available.
adlai: kanzure's channel is ##hplusroadmap, dunno what you mean by haskellisms... I have often seen FP proponents there, although most of the conversations are either scifi wankery, or folks griping about the crap quality of their secondhand equipment
asciilifeform 'refreshingly' not entirely forsaken by these vermin, e.g. the anonism pushers in www comments do still show up
adlai still lurks on-and-off in kanzure's channel, although it often just results in pointless arguments instead of productive conversation
adlai: incidentally, one of the most interesting conversations that I ever overheard was between two young israelis who were speaking modern hebrew with american ebonic inflection!
asciilifeform: in 1970s, a sov. expedition to taiga found some uncontacted old believers. could barely have conversation, spoke 1600s dialect. they had a preserved brass kettle.

asciilifeform: it was actually not clear to me, how he sells the thing w/ 1way photodiode, if it requires 2-way conversation w/ stock trb, to work
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: all of the commercially-sold archs were 'to run c', i.e. lack type bits, bounds checks, etc. but lispm is very separate conversation from 'cpu to plant linux on'
adlai will read your elaboration on the subject, since apparently this is one of the few places remaining on the 'net where such a conversation can be had civilly.
asciilifeform: elsewhere : 'meld' . ( and yes these folx aint tuned in, but will put ftr. )
adlai: theRealHashBrown: "Phuctor will return!" (see conversations leading up to http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/trilema/2019-10-28#1948552 for the details of why/where it went)
adlai: e.g., i often wonder whether people think i'm a plainclothes prompter for off-duty military folks, since i've had a bunch of conversations that could've interested the kind of people who do this for a living
asciilifeform: ( if you had 'pill for rsa', wouldja tell anyone? i sure as hell wouldn't )
asciilifeform: Apocalyptic: this is universally the case in crypto. recall coventry.
asciilifeform: if it's a coupla shifts, adds, xor's -- yes. if it's rsa, prolly not
ben_vulpes: BingoBoingo: also smoked museum pieces generating rsa keys
Vexual: ch1 prolly more parsable than stan brother convo
asciilifeform: iirc w/ his variant, ~400msec 4096b rsaism.
asciilifeform: ( incl. keygenning, that is. rsa e.g. verification already worx and ch20 concerned pgp-eatin' )
asciilifeform: ch22 will be specifically rsa demo.
shinohai just noticed he was in simultaneous conversation abt old women posting on xhamster and posted wrong link ....
asciilifeform: ( it is not difficult to infer rsa pubkey from large body of valid ciphertexts )
asciilifeform: timestamp & random 'nonce' you will want visible in plaintext, so as not to blow cpu cycles rsaing on replayed crud
asciilifeform: key is that neither participant in 'conversation' ought to give a damn re originating ip of replies
asciilifeform: and so happens that i've already posted world's simplest rsatron. which, also happens, beats koch's speedwise even w/out bvt's asmism patches.
asciilifeform: orig aim specifically was 'eat udp packets w/ rsaolade'
asciilifeform: my ffa plan includes eventual port to that machine, for pocket-sized rsatronics.
snsabot: Logged on 2020-04-27 13:51:41 asciilifeform: afaik all old rsatrons used euclid's algo for the m-even case. i.e. with division. which cannot be constant-timespaced .
asciilifeform: afaik all old rsatrons used euclid's algo for the m-even case. i.e. with division. which cannot be constant-timespaced .
asciilifeform: ( and in particular , rsa keygen requires working with an even modulus, cuz (p - 1)(q - 1) is, unsurprisingly , even )
asciilifeform: Apocalyptic: the likely reason you haven't heard of it, is that most traditional rsatrons use montgomery's. which dun work on even #s, and this is considered acceptable usually in single-purpose rsa proggy. but doesn't cut in in general-purpose numeric system .
asciilifeform: finally, ~3y after starting series, can generate rsa keys...
asciilifeform: among other places , is needed in rsa key gen .
asciilifeform: as for why gpg -- at that time it was the most lightweight rsa proggy available.
snsabot: Logged on 2020-02-05 17:08:54 asciilifeform: shinohai: i sincerely hope that mp et al actually try to bake this, it'll be hilarious to watch ( where signing e.g. linux kernel will need coupla 10,000s of rsa invocations, auto-recognition of 'what lang' so to get the comment & demarcation syntax, and coupld 10MB of entropy.. )
shinohai: Nothing so far I couldn't work out on said whiteboard. Has got me thinking a lot on RSA.
asciilifeform: in e.g. warsaw ghetto, all the way until 'day x' there was a restaurant where caviar served.
asciilifeform: meanwhile in cocksucker anon chorus lulz.
asciilifeform: iirc mp vaguely disliked it, for impugning his relig. faith in 'unbreakable rsa'
asciilifeform: who read 1-6, can write rsa verifier in any lang.
asciilifeform: 6 is the end of the 'max simple/slow rsa' warmup sequence.
asciilifeform: rsa only seems 'instant' when happens 1x, when manually pressed key in e.g. gpg. but if you want coupla 10k rsaings, suddenly becomes obv that no, not 'instant'.
asciilifeform: this means, to sign project, N rsa invocations, where N files. and to press tree, N * n_s where n_s is # of signers.
snsabot: Logged on 2020-02-05 17:08:54 asciilifeform: shinohai: i sincerely hope that mp et al actually try to bake this, it'll be hilarious to watch ( where signing e.g. linux kernel will need coupla 10,000s of rsa invocations, auto-recognition of 'what lang' so to get the comment & demarcation syntax, and coupld 10MB of entropy.. )
jurov: ..and it seem to generate rsa keys faster!
adlai intended to link a different line from that same conversation, although there is no need for a correction since the conversation should probably be read along with the article
shinohai: Just the entire conversation was amusing, no matter how predictable. The new generation at work.
verisimilitude: Alright; I've not visited this before; your index page is missing its doctype and an ampersand hasn't been escaped properly.
Vexual: immarsat is cheap
mod6: Ok, off I go to work on these a bit more. Will report back when ready for testing. Thanks for the conversation.
asciilifeform: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2020-02-11#1006214 << see e.g. this schoolbook review .
asciilifeform: ( an iron rsatron , in pci card, ~might~, but they'll have one some time after they have mars colony )
asciilifeform: for 4096b rsa, multiply this by ~1.7...
asciilifeform: let's do for lulz some arithm. i have a linux-3.16.70.tar handy, and inside 47452 files. now, a modexp (2048bit!) on ye olde koch-rsa eats 0.639s on my machine. so that'd be ~8.42 hours. not counting the hashing (my timing example did not include hashing, had pre-baked operands).
asciilifeform: shinohai: for bonus lulz, he wants to use the slow rsa from my wastebasket (aka 'eucrypt'). so promises to be interesting.
asciilifeform: shinohai: i sincerely hope that mp et al actually try to bake this, it'll be hilarious to watch ( where signing e.g. linux kernel will need coupla 10,000s of rsa invocations, auto-recognition of 'what lang' so to get the comment & demarcation syntax, and coupld 10MB of entropy.. )
asciilifeform: classical branching-code impl.s of rsa (e.g. koch's) leak entire priv after coupla hundred privops (to anyone with sufficient 'ears' to listen correctly)
asciilifeform: without fast, constant-time rsa -- any realtime mechanism will leak privkey.
asciilifeform: mike_c: the 'holy grail' still would be an iron which can 4096bit rsa 'at line rate' (1G/s) , but this is as i understand impossible w/out baking silicon.
asciilifeform: i expect at some pt he'll 'reinvent' pki also. what insubordinate nonsense, where plebes can rsa w/out permission from the throne!1
shinohai: i like where conversation headed towards v.sh
shinohai: But no, outside of irc, no "real" conversation occurs.
shinohai: VALID GPG RSA signature from Diana Coman <office@dianacoman.com>
btcinfobot: http://btc.info.gf/wot/rsa/asciilifeform.peh
shinohai: VALID GPG RSA signature from shinohai <btcinfo@sdf.org>
asciilifeform: rsa sigs in general are computed by taking x = n ^ public_exponent mod public_modulus and comparing x to a specified form, called 'padding'
asciilifeform: shinohai: see ch.6 re basic rsa
Apocalyptic: you mean RSA-Public-Exponent for the second right
shinohai: so as far as peh tapes go, @RSA-Public-Modulus@ is `N` and @RSA-Public-Modulus@ is the exponent correct?
shinohai: Spanish kinda worked best for me just getting out there and holding conversations in it, never really did videos.
asciilifeform: i put it in same garbage bin as e.g. fuhrer's method for multiplication. i.e. useful for outlandishly large (multi-MB) integers, but not for rsa or any other extant cryptosystem.
asciilifeform spent very little time attempting to find a sub-quadratic constant-spacetime algo for gcd, because gcd aint any kind of bottleneck in rsa or any cryptosystem i know of
asciilifeform: Apocalyptic: i advocate constant-spacetime arithmetic for e.g. rsa not only because abolishes 'side-channel' leakage, but also because it makes proofs of correctness actually possible.
asciilifeform: shinohai: current ffa/peh lacks hashing so cannot yet advertise 'replace gpg universally'
shinohai: As far as creating a "public" rsa key, just have to have ffa calculate your "N" and "E" neh?
asciilifeform: i.e. signatures made via gpg 1.4.10 , set to max supported hash (sha512) on 2048...8192b rsa keys, specifically, supported. anyffing else can go pound sand.
asciilifeform: mike_c: naively one might expect constant-spacetime (i.e. 1^1 mod 1 takes same time and memory, in particular bitness, as any other modular exp) would be ruinously slow; but in practice faster than heathen rsa routines, on acct of the peculiarities of current-day cpus .
asciilifeform: ffa ain't limited to rsa, however; is general-purpose numerics-in-constant-spacetime kit.
asciilifeform: my approach to rsa, was to derive a closed algebraic form for all of the necessary operations, so in fact can express'em w/out data-dependent branching or memory indexing. which thermonukes side-channelism, but as bonus also makes the algos '9000x' easier to analyze by hand.
asciilifeform: the series is ~complete (needs still ability to hash, to be deployable for practical rsaism; but can be used in fact as-is w/ external hashism even nao)
asciilifeform: i've written , as experiment, rsa for 8bit micros, but imho very few folx could live with it (multi-hour decrypt, multi-day keygen)
asciilifeform: in practice, late 486 is prolly the slowest/memory-poorest that can be used for everyday rsa.
asciilifeform: 'apu2' later from same vendor had the pad, but probe will not function, amd locked the hdt module and can only be unlocked with their rsa key
mike_c: I am happy to have a conversation with those not negrated, or anyone about the situation. I'm not going to hire you to represent me (but do honestly appreciate the offer), and I'm not yet willing to work my way back into the good graces of the realm.
asciilifeform: jfw: ecc also has an 'interesting' political history (usg pushed it aggressively for ~20y, and w/ entirely fraudulent claims of '256b ecc is equiv to 4096b rsa' etc)
asciilifeform: ( and , worse, rsa (unlike e.g. rabin's method) not afaik proven to rest entirely on the difficulty of factoring. )
asciilifeform: jfw: not quite same. rsa rests on specific conjecture.
jfw: ty for that comment asciilifeform, makes good futher context. Isn't RSA in that same snake-oil category though?
asciilifeform: jfw: re ecc -- part of why asciilifeform avoided to implement ecc (even tho ultimately it must be done, for a solid btctron) is that safety-critical mechanisms imho oughta be implemented by people who ~understand~ how they work. i understand how rsa worx. but ecc, presently, not.
asciilifeform focused exclusively on rsa, to date, so not had chance to attempt
asciilifeform: shinohai: i wrote (but not published, it was ~useless) a demo rsa for 6502. you wouldn't want to use.
shinohai: I am definitely looking forward to rsa keygen. (mips port also sounds quite interesting)
asciilifeform: shinohai: re adaism , i have a kilometre of ffa material in backlog also ( keccak; integration of bvt's asmisms ; cookbooks for rsa & cs key gen ; standalone util. form ; mips port ; others. )
asciilifeform: certain other nearby vendors wanted 2-3x the price, and even after lengthy conversation it remained unclear for what exactly.
shinohai: diana_coman is invited to simply ignore my conversation then, what else can I say?
BingoBoingo: dorion: It isn't the worst outcome if the conversation takes a week through 5, 15, 30 minute a day pieces.
BingoBoingo: dorion: Generally the synchronous make an appointment thing, it's not the politest way to approach new to you folks for information. The committment to a synchronous conversation carries an implication of a more enduring committment than "Hey, I heard something happened. Do you want to talk about it?"
BingoBoingo: dorion: There's two major modes for using IRC, one is the syncrynous conversation mode simulating spoken conversation diana_coman has been pushing you into for good reasons. There's another asychronous mode where you post questions, take time to reflect on your answers to questions presented, etc, and everyone tolerates a delay in favor of greater precision.
asciilifeform: mats: it aint a dress rehearsal, like '17. 'this is not a drill!'(tm)(r).
