joecool: asciilifeform: maybe i'm misunderstanding you. my system can tell if my openpgp smartcard is present
asciilifeform: yes, and hence the smartcard is garbage.
joecool: an attacker *could* attempt 3 times to use it with a pin
joecool: before it locks itself out forever
joecool: so it's a non-issue
asciilifeform: doesn't matter - you unlock the card, and it signs whatever kernel wants it to sign.
joecool: asciilifeform: except it needs a pin every time to do it, and it needs to be physically present
asciilifeform: attacker pwns the pc, you personally unlock the card, thinking you will do operation X, in actuality: Y.

mircea_popescu: anyway, the statement of that point im happy with is in
mircea_popescu: specifically, "As far as experience shows, people don’t tend to support states that either stupidly or unwittingly include rules among their enemies. You can’t win a war against math, or against drugs, or against “social injustice”, or “kulaks”. Soon after the Soviet government moved its focus from entities to rules, it lost the support of the people. Soon after the other-Soviet government moved its focus f
mircea_popescu: rom entities to rules, it also lost the support of the people. There weren’t that many people burning American flags in 1860, you know ? Why do you think not ? You can support a government killing Indians, or bison. You can’t support a government fighting chemical compounds."
mircea_popescu: this'd be a better distinction than simply over/under, because it's a difference in kind not degree.
chetty: If that plane went on for hours why werent the people on board using cell phones?
asciilifeform: chetty: not much cell service in the sea.
mircea_popescu: you need a tower reasonably close
chetty: they were over land there of a while
mircea_popescu: then again... chinese people. someone probably told them not to use cell phones
mircea_popescu: and so they didn't. period.
asciilifeform: also helps to remember that cell jammer fits in a belt buckle if necessary.
asciilifeform: or, if you like exciting life, in the plane's own instrumentation.
chetty: good point asciilifeform
mircea_popescu: did they ever get fitted with that in the end ?
asciilifeform: you know, the same one that gets a magic packet and steers the flying coffin 1000km into the sea and then down.

joecool: asciilifeform: cell jammers are also much more effective as they move away from towers
moiety: feeeh-lings
moiety: read your article
mircea_popescu: o o hehe
asciilifeform: the most effective cell jammer doesn't simply piss out white noise, but emulates a functioning tower - one which happens to route calls into '/dev/null'
asciilifeform: you can't buy this one from 'alibaba' but there it is.
joecool: asciilifeform: there are a lot of standards to cover with a fake tower
asciilifeform: power needed is miniscule
asciilifeform: joecool: this is a commercial product

asciilifeform: 'catcher' is normally pictured as a wiretapping tool
asciilifeform: but is perfectly adequate for this other purpose.
asciilifeform: all known cell systems use 'toy' crypto
asciilifeform: and certainly no serious authentication of 'this is a genuine tower'

joecool: gsm mitm is fairly easy with 2G technologies, the hardware isn't very expensive and the software is opensource
asciilifeform: this is cell engineering from day 1.
mircea_popescu: the whole banking system was well fucked, what with its odd notions of a cheque
mircea_popescu: so knowing that, let's build another whole industry on rotten basics
asciilifeform: the mandatory use of toy crypto in consumer telephony was blatant and entirely conspicuous.
mircea_popescu: i have no idea who exactly would wish to live in a world where a company making a product asks any government what it thinks on the topic.
asciilifeform: i've suggested before that it is a mistake to see u.s. tech firms (certainly after ww2) as meaningfully separate from usg.
asciilifeform: the cliche 'privatize profits, public pays losses' is overused, but applies.
mircea_popescu: it's by now a mistake to see anything in the us command economy as meaningfully separate from anything else.
mircea_popescu: they've plainly confessed to it what with the "too big to fail" doctrine,
asciilifeform: they've been linked in this way since the war.
mircea_popescu: which is strctly command economy under another name
asciilifeform: in the case of at&t and certain others, arguably earlier.
mircea_popescu: i guess so.

mircea_popescu: they wheeled in some ancient revolutionary bolshevik to praise the party.
joecool: asciilifeform: i mean the communication framework was setup in the early 30's
asciilifeform: voroshilov ?
mircea_popescu: joecool i guess there's a good point here, in the sense that the infrastructure is really old, phreakin did exist, what is one to do
mircea_popescu: but let me point out that digital comms is a whole new industry.
mircea_popescu: none of the old infrastructure was usable, not really, towers is one thing copper is another and so on
joecool: mircea_popescu: unless you count telegraph as digital

ozbot: The Bitcoin network costs nearly $1 billion a year to run. : Bitcoin
Dimsler: the real fatal flaw to bitcoin
Dimsler: is the distribution of new coins
Dimsler: and network costs
lnovy: electricity burned is almost directly transformed into network security which more or less directly affects price. The real problem and wasting is not with distributed mining but with nondistributed chain verification as this needs to be done by every participant indepently and every new member of network need to check whole chain. This is a problem that will kill ethereum very quicky as you are actually not paying transaction fee for inclusion i

Dimsler: lol
lnovy: it's will not be a storage of value, so feel free, but it's doomed to fail anyway, it's only a proof of concept same as huntercoin :)
lnovy: still... it will be a jaw dropper, you can bet on it
MisterE: if you want to fix the problem force miners to reclaim wasted heat
lnovy: that problem will fix itselfs by the market...

Dimsler: well no
Dimsler: its a serious flaw
mircea_popescu: dub amex is one of the majors.
dub: smaller than visa and mc tho
mircea_popescu: nah larger. 33bn/8bn vs 10/2bn for visa
mircea_popescu: roughly same for mc, slighly lower, something like that.
dub: probably significantly skewed
mircea_popescu: amex actually employs like... twice as many ppl as mc/visa combined or some shit.
mircea_popescu: it's huge.
cazalla: why do t hey need that many employees?
lnovy: that reddit post kills itself in first two lines... it's like saying that cost of running banking system is equivalent to amount of fiat printed...
