billymg: asciilifeform: i'm not quite as cynical as you on this, eventually there will be (if there isn't already) one of those amazon mail forwarding importers, and they'll be taking btc too

billymg: asciilifeform: unrelated, i spent several hours fighting with my build of "modern" gentoo trying to get python2 to be the default. i went through the change logs for app-eselect/eselect-python and
billymg: dev-lang/python-exec, downloaded and built from ebuilds prior to obvious python2 sabotage, and still no luck
asciilifeform: at least for so long as the asinine 'latin a prints same as cyrillic a' etc thing is a thing
asciilifeform: billymg: i've not yet found how to fix, so far having to invoke pythons manually
billymg: asciilifeform: yeah, i was hoping i could make some progress there, but still stuck
asciilifeform: billymg: i haven't touched it recently, but will come back to it
billymg: asciilifeform: i've given up at the moment. the effort was mostly so i could emerge pip-20.2.3, the last python2 compat build in portage
billymg: asciilifeform: interesting note there, even with that pip ebuild in hand, and PYTHON_TARGETS and PYTHON_SINGLE_TARGET set to python2_7, emerge wouldn't include the flag
asciilifeform: billymg: tried PYTHON_COMPAT_OVERRIDE="python2_7" USE="python_targets_python2_7" emerge ... ?
billymg: asciilifeform: despite the ebuild file clearly listing 2_7 as a compatible version
billymg: and... if i added -python3_9 to USE emerge would throw an error saying python3_9 is requred
asciilifeform recalls having to in fact 'strace' over 1 of these to see where the fuck it was getting flag
billymg: so i'm thinking python-exec and eselect-python might have been a red herring and actual breakage is in portage
billymg: so now i'm just going to build pip 20 from source rather than trying to go through portage

asciilifeform: punkman: thinking about ACKs -- possibly simply oughta permit 'getdata' by hash as a message type.
dulapbot: Logged on 2021-09-07 10:47:16 punkman: how do we handle lost ACKs
asciilifeform: that way can ask peer to fill in the missing msg.
asciilifeform: so then can dispense w/ ACKs entirely, in theory.
asciilifeform: thimbronion, signpost , et al ^
asciilifeform: while we're on pest_FE : there's another msg type asciilifeform did not include, but would like to discuss : rekeys.
asciilifeform: proposed mechanism : 2 msg types for this, 'rekey-a' (payload 512bit of trng) and 'rekey-b' (ditto)
asciilifeform: suppose node X wants to (ideally, probabilistically) initiate a rekey. generates 512b of FG bits, sends as rekey-a to peer Y.
asciilifeform: peer Y receives. generates similarly 512b of FG output, sends to X as 'rekey-b', and immediately adds (512b from rekey-a) xor (512b or rekey-b) as a new key for peer X.
asciilifeform: if X received the rekey-b, does likewise. when peer X validates a packet with new key, it zaps the old; and Y - likewise.
asciilifeform: *(512b from rekey-b)
asciilifeform: *does likewise for Y
asciilifeform considered also to make each peer 1st send a hash of his random 512b -- to prevent a sabotaged client of peer Y from forcing the resulting xor to a zero. but not sure whether worth it.
asciilifeform: ( if not obvious -- since Y knows X's string before being asked to produce his own, he can send back ~(X's string) and new key will end up 0)
asciilifeform: granted it'll only compromise X<->Y traffic and no other.
asciilifeform: simply aesthetically Wrong, imho, if even ~theoretically~ possible for an initially a++ handmade key to be swapped with a 0 silently in the future.
asciilifeform: so one possible solution is , 4 types of rekey msg, a', b', a, b. a' carries hash of a's 512b. b' -- hash of b's. from that point, carried on as in earlier example, with proviso that h(a) must == a', and h(b) == b', or peer refuses rekey.
asciilifeform: if to any reader of pest_FE the above does not make sense -- plox to write in!!
billymg: this pip thing is harder than i thought it would be too
billymg: if there's a way to manually build from source i haven't found it yet, closest thing i found was build python from source with '-ensurepip' flag
asciilifeform: so handshake goes : 1) X->Y : a' 2) Y->X: b' 3) X->Y: a 4) if a' != H(a), Y->X: fuckyou ; else Y->X: b 5) if b' != H(b), X->Y: fuckyou; else X->Y: hello with new key a^b 6) Y->X: hello to you too with new key a^b .
asciilifeform: ftr. nitpicks welcome.
asciilifeform: billymg: have you tried 'easy_install' , the 'alt' pip ?
billymg: asciilifeform: not yet
billymg: and it worked in that it installed a pip, but it installed a python3 pip
billymg: despite it being an ebuild for python2.7
asciilifeform: billymg: the sad thing is that the new portage (req'd to eat the new ports tree...) is a py3ism
asciilifeform: ( or yours aint?? )
billymg: no, it is
asciilifeform: i.e. py3ism thoroughly infected various mechanisms
billymg: but i assumed it could still be used to install python2 packages, for legacy support and whatnot
asciilifeform: aa nope
asciilifeform: not afaik
asciilifeform: they broke errything they could in py2land
billymg: when war crime tribunals
asciilifeform: when we fight our way outta paper bag!!1!lol
punkman: asciilifeform: I don't get how the a'/b' hash helps anything
asciilifeform: punkman: a and b commit to their xor halves before rekey(a^b) takes effect.
asciilifeform: err, X and Y commit...
asciilifeform: so new key is properly entropic for so long as 1 side has a working rng.
asciilifeform: punkman: or are you asking wtf is the point of autorekeys?
billymg: for anyone curious, running `python2 get-pip.py "pip < 21.0"` with this get-pip.py worked. now to see if it'll install the py2 packages i'm looking for...
punkman: no, never mind, I got it now
asciilifeform: punkman: a ok
asciilifeform: billymg: neato, post recipe if whole thing worx
punkman: might as well check that a xor b is not equal to 0 though?
asciilifeform: punkman: mno. 1 side should not be able to force key to a given value.
asciilifeform: 0 aint magic somehow, simply symbolic of this problem
dulapbot: Logged on 2021-09-07 14:53:04 asciilifeform: so new key is properly entropic for so long as 1 side has a working rng.

asciilifeform: this is simply ye olde 'shamir's coin flip'.
asciilifeform: billymg: a++, will read
asciilifeform: punkman: i.e. neither side must be able to force the new key to a constant value. or, if you like, to reduce its entropy below that of the better of the two xor halves.
asciilifeform: it's the kind of bullshit that happens by 'accident' in virtually erry heathen crypto protocol.
asciilifeform: i'd like to kill it even as possibility.

asciilifeform: mats: iirc 'max' there refers to all-time peak
mats: oh ok thought it was a limit
mats: asciilifeform is a popular guy
asciilifeform: mats: lol, of the folx i can see from client, 7 are bots
asciilifeform: 6 of the meat people moar or less dun speak..
asciilifeform: still, imho, notbad turnout.
asciilifeform: ( mp had 4x the people, but look, still drowned!1111 )
asciilifeform: !s seen pete_rizzo_
scoopbot: asciilifeform: my valid commands are: src, uptime, version, help, update
asciilifeform: !q seen pete_rizzo_
asciilifeform: evidently wasn't hopelessly hooked in #a!
mats: i remembered mp's closing mpoe statement earlier this week when i noticed btc+eth dominance slipping
mats: lots of hurt ahead for investors as participants slowly try to work out which one is the winner
asciilifeform has difficulty getting into the mindset of the fuckwits, 'ooh what should i buy, btc or usgtronium gluetrapcoin???? can't decide!'

verisimilitude: The key could still end up zero, or otherwise bad, asciilifeform.
verisimilitude: As for not writing much, mine IRC machine has been having issues, and I don't much care to correct it soon.
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: shortly after 5 asteroids fall on both machines
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: or do you mean constructedly from action of 1 peer? if so how ?
verisimilitude: Still, the hashing is a case of ``Locks keep honest people honest.'', I think.
asciilifeform: again, how ?
dulapbot: Logged on 2021-09-07 14:59:14 asciilifeform: punkman: i.e. neither side must be able to force the new key to a constant value. or, if you like, to reduce its entropy below that of the better of the two xor halves.
verisimilitude: Again, this hashing is a case of ``Locks keep honest people honest.'', I think.
asciilifeform: so let's suppose a dishonest or sabotaged peer, verisimilitude
asciilifeform: how would it force key to a predetermined value ?
verisimilitude: Well he can't do it anyway.
verisimilitude: It's an idiom.
asciilifeform: verisimilitude: afaik normally idiom to refer to a rubbish lock, neh
asciilifeform: e.g. iso category 1 (or whateverthefuck it was) safe, for instance, is rated to keep dishonest fella honest for 20 whole minutes.
asciilifeform: ( and if w/out power tools, for 20 hrs, or somesuch )
verisimilitude: I leave again for now.
asciilifeform: aite, laters
