jurov: just from my bad memory - it started as joint venture of an underage admin and other person who was supposed to actually pay bills
trinque: no backups is mindbogglingly bad
jurov: then it got listed (supposedly without consent of the latter) and later delisted from mpex
jurov: then it got sold to new owners
jurov: around that time coinbr was a customer and after a ddos got unceremoniously kicked out
jurov: then it got listed on buttfunder and btctct
jurov: then that went sour, too (i stopped following long before that)

mircea_popescu: yes, but that's still not a key.
asciilifeform: it'll be a 'key'
mircea_popescu: not any string of bits is a key tho
asciilifeform: notice that 'the entire Public-Key packet' leaves plenty of tweakable bits on top of the modulus
asciilifeform: so, generate something like a reasonable modulus, and then proceed.
mircea_popescu: you can calculate your chances of succeeding right now.
asciilifeform: notice that the length of the packet is not even bounded
mircea_popescu: they're unsplendid.
mircea_popescu: (but we did do a campaighn of updating from sha-1 about last year, for digests etc)
asciilifeform: sure. but this does nothing for key fp.
asciilifeform: which is hardcoded to sha1..
mircea_popescu: the only scenario that does anything in, is when one acquires a key from dubious source.
asciilifeform: thing is, let's recall how key familiarity works right now. e.g., mircea_popescu's business card.
asciilifeform: it does not contain the modulus he signs with. only bottom 64b of the sha1 of....
mircea_popescu: the pupose of the business card is to filter contacts tho.
asciilifeform: point being, gpg --keyserver wherever.the.fuck --recv-key 0xfingerprint can now return magical key.
asciilifeform: the chore that everybody here has been putting off into indefinite future - that of ~actually distributing one's entire modulus~ - is a necessary thing.
mircea_popescu distributes his pubkey off his blog.
mircea_popescu: the "chore" of having and maintaining blogs is NOT negotiable. you must, you MUST be your own facebook washington post vice gawker etc.
mircea_popescu: this was never negotiable.
asciilifeform: there are folks in wot who have neglected this.
mircea_popescu: these also tend to be folks for whom this bullet won't likely be fired.\
mircea_popescu: it's expensive, and foer that matter - we've yet to see this wonder in the wild.
mircea_popescu: so far we're at the "one mirrored moduls"
mircea_popescu: oh, speaking of which...
mircea_popescu: Naphex you ever got that quote ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: << contains, iirc, example of collision
assbot: cooperpair/pgpv4 at master · coruus/cooperpair · GitHub ... ( )
asciilifeform: (how found - not specified)
assbot: how close is OpenPGP tied to SHA1 ... ( )
mod6: ok, updated with my pubkey.
asciilifeform: where does btcalpha get its pubkeys ?
asciilifeform: how about assbot?
asciilifeform: as to where the bullet might be aimed, the phuctor dataset suggests a certain pattern
mircea_popescu: deleted ?!
asciilifeform: aha, hence ''
mircea_popescu: assbot and btcalpha get them from servers (older implementations) ; deedbot- gets them correctly (you gotta supply the dpaste with it)
asciilifeform: pattern: folks who 1) are somehow interesting (german number theorists, etc) 2) have a very threadbare, if at all present, volume of published signed material 3) communicate their key to other people largely in the form of a fingerprint
mircea_popescu: 2 really reads like "idiots" to me.
mircea_popescu: folk who think they're too damned important to irc, blog etc.
mircea_popescu: "oh, that's hearn's job"
mircea_popescu: yes, fucktard, let it be hearn's job. next you'll be fed by cockroaches. it's their job to move food around.
assbot: Last 1 lines bashed and pending review. ( )
asciilifeform: but i disagree that folks who largely listen, and seldom talk, are necessarily 'idiot'
asciilifeform: if anything, the net needs more, rather than fewer, of them
mircea_popescu: do you know what the term meant, originally ?
asciilifeform: sure. those bedeviled with... ideas
mircea_popescu: notrly. pretty much exactly : doesn't talk much. sorta eternally amazed.
mircea_popescu: deaf&dumb being the other kind.
asciilifeform: there are also people who are not really mute by any reasonable definition but this one. e.g., knuth
asciilifeform: large volume of material, afaik none of it signed.
asciilifeform: they then are the targets.
asciilifeform: for this bullet.
asciilifeform: and anyone else who'd make a satisfying splat.
asciilifeform: the point i wanted to make is that the original attitude of 'keys are people' was predicated on ideally 'stiff' keys
asciilifeform: really, it is 'key plus body of signed material' is a man.
asciilifeform: and this still is predicated on an assumption, to date unproven, that rsa sig operation is not malleable.
mircea_popescu: it certainlty is malleable (provably so)
asciilifeform: (it is conceivable that one might produce a key which will verify mircea_popescu's signed body of works, but which, if encrypted to, resulting ciphertext could be read both by mircea_popescu AND by hitler.)
mircea_popescu: supposedly not ~usefully~ malleable.
mircea_popescu: this is not conceivable.
asciilifeform: solely because rfc2440/4880 is retarded
asciilifeform: not on account of rsa per se.
BingoBoingo: << In other news Google struggles to get up to qntra's mobile friendly design
assbot: amphtml/ at master · ampproject/amphtml · GitHub ... ( )
mircea_popescu: it IS however conceivable that a pubkey might be created which carries the fingerprint 6160E1CAC8A3C52966FD76998A736F0E2FB7B452 but if used to encrypt to mp will respond with "this doesn't decrypt wtf did you do". which event will be very interesting to see .
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: except the ideal scenario for firing this weapon is precisely a case where the resulting message never reaches mircea_popescu
asciilifeform: instead it'd be a funkspiel between hitler and mr schmuck, the latter having believed that he is speaking to mircea_popescu
mircea_popescu: except, i do not normally expect to be spoken to by people i do not know.
asciilifeform: but if knuth wants to write in - then tough cookies.
asciilifeform: or al schwartz
mircea_popescu: they are too old to be alive anymore, is the sad truth of the matter.
mircea_popescu: they may only survive as dead people./
asciilifeform: the part that bugs me is that the fundamental premise of public key crypto is a kind of downer
mircea_popescu: how you mean ?
asciilifeform: that is, the idea was that it is not necessary to meet in the flesh to form a working relation
asciilifeform: (if you can meet in the flesh, you could exchange one time pads just as well)
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 42900 @ 0.00050442 = 21.6396 BTC [+] {2}
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what happened to the third ?
mircea_popescu: the ONLY way to meet new people is via recommendation.
mircea_popescu: "talk to this guy - here's his php"
asciilifeform: also works.
mircea_popescu: no. not also.
mircea_popescu: this is the only thing that owkrs, or ever has worked.
mircea_popescu: this is what gossipd is built upon, also.
asciilifeform: 'here is me, and this is my pgp' also works, is what i meant.
mircea_popescu: there is nothing else. in very particular, there is NOT this bullshit star pattern of "everyone reads vice".
mircea_popescu: the deep fundamental reason usg exists needs to go away. not merely the usg, or preet bharara's head.
mircea_popescu: the notion that people may read "newpspaers" made by people they don't know.
asciilifeform: the basic result here is that pgptronium is conserved, if you will.
mircea_popescu: this is rank nonsense, and the cornerstone of stupidworld.
mircea_popescu: trust is conserved. yes.
asciilifeform: the one thing remaining to add is that, theoretically, it is not necessary to distribute pubkeys at all!
asciilifeform: because they can be derived from signed material
asciilifeform: with a modest expenditure of cpu.
mircea_popescu: some people don't sign so much.
asciilifeform: they are candidates for the treatment described earlier.
mircea_popescu: but an extractor is a fundamental tool, yes.
asciilifeform has intended to produce one for a long while, but it is not a priority presently
asciilifeform: my original observation, though, stands - the time to stop thinking of pgp 64bit fp as 'the man' is not when arbitrarily colliding sha1 costs a penny! it is now.
asciilifeform: other thing is, the problem goes a little deeper. one might craft, for instance, a filter which eats mircea_popescu's www and substitutes hitlerine signatures for all of the signatures contained therein.
asciilifeform: and the matching hitler key, for the key normally appearing in
assbot: Contact : PGP on Trilema - A blog by Mircea Popescu. ... ( )
mircea_popescu: there aren't any signatures contained therein.
asciilifeform: deedbot, then
mircea_popescu: but herein the problem gets fractured. how many things does it need to filter ?
asciilifeform: this of course demonstrates the point mircea_popescu made earlier, whereby no one who he was not properly introduced to, could ever hope to escape this.
mircea_popescu: (turns out mp deliberately isn't keeoping the pobkey and the signerd material in the same place. har har who knew! )
mircea_popescu: i said and i repeated there';s major value to jointing the wot early. to the point that it was throughout the greatest gift one could give his rest of his life.
mircea_popescu: yes, this was, and perhaps still is true.
mircea_popescu: \as you say, the time to join the wot isn't when sha-1 collisions cost a penny.
asciilifeform: no mega-shocking result - pgp is not a magical fountain of phree-energy-style 'trust from the aether', but rather an amplifier of trust established - to some extent - in the meat.
mircea_popescu: there is no pill for fixing late adopter lameness.
asciilifeform: the other thing is, to the extent that the integrity of the wot as we now have it is predicated on sha1 not costing a penny to break, some of the sweat that went in to forming the wot may end up having to be re-sweated
mircea_popescu: the people who went to oregon first, got homesteads. the people who go now - get to pay rent.
mircea_popescu: there still is time.
phf: oh hey i wrote a poc for pgp filter at toorcon, when that other wifi mitm came out. no need to figure out what's where, just sit on the http stream, catch text/*, grep it for gpg headers, and then rewrite on the fly
asciilifeform: phf: this only leads to laughs unless you can somehow be there for the rest of the two would-be pen pals' lives
asciilifeform: sitting between them
mircea_popescu: yes, rewerite, but with what.
phf: asciilifeform: of course
asciilifeform: 'quod licet' usg 'non licet bovi' (tm)
mircea_popescu: doing this is actually a strategic mistake i'd be more than happy to see executed.
asciilifeform: let's picture, say, an isis beheading is held on top of a banner containing an fp
mircea_popescu: exponential costs. modest benefits. very much in line with all the other bad choices that sunk the ship of state.
mircea_popescu: has this ever happened ?
asciilifeform: not afaik
asciilifeform: but i suggested it some months ago, and so it is conceivable that it will.
mircea_popescu: let's picture a unicorn raping a lolipop ?
phf: mircea_popescu: back then it was kek, these days i could probably get a hackernews frontpage "fundamental vulnerability found in gnupg, no one is safe!" either way completely irrelevant. just reminded me, it was 2005 or so
asciilifeform: the fundamental issue that bothers me is that a broken hash is where 'protocol' begins to decay into 'promise'
asciilifeform: systems which rely on a hash, ultimately contain trace elements of 'promise'
mircea_popescu: a hash is a fundamental building block of crypto
asciilifeform: the weaker the hash, the more 'promise' and less 'protocol'.
asciilifeform: hash is the proverbial 'hole through which the night walks in'
mircea_popescu: you can't really have pneumatics without valves.
asciilifeform: tesla begs to differ
mircea_popescu: and yes, valves is what always fucking breaks.
asciilifeform: (he had a whole host of motionless pneumatic building blocks based on vortices)
mircea_popescu: no wonder dupont had him killed.
asciilifeform: and to that we have analogy: the pure-rsa variant
asciilifeform: where nothing needs to be hashed.
asciilifeform: and symmetric crypto is also not made use of.
mircea_popescu believes he proposed this originally.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu did propose putting it to battlefield use
mircea_popescu: but i am reserved as to the hashlessness
asciilifeform: normally everybody proposes it and then writes it off as 'we haven't the cpu or the entropy'
asciilifeform: 'and passing moduli around bloats messages'
asciilifeform: thing re: hashes is that every hash, being a many-to-one function, is by definition guaranteed to collide.
asciilifeform: the only question concerns the difficulty of finding said collisions
asciilifeform: and in most cases it is not in any way knowable.
asciilifeform: today - gigabux, tomorrow - penny (pointedly ~not~ because of any advance in cpu, but on account of mathematical efforts)
asciilifeform: in ~that~ sense alone, a hash is a cheque drawn on a total unknown.
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 92700 @ 0.00048955 = 45.3813 BTC [-]
mircea_popescu: oh, btw, phf you ain't ever gonna collect your eulora prize ?
phf: mircea_popescu: will do around saturday. i'm still in transit, so no working client
mircea_popescu: whenever i hear of someone saying they're in transit i always picture a person inside an intestine.
phf: well, i'm on amtrak, so might as well be
asciilifeform thinks 'sic transit gloria mundi'
mircea_popescu: why don't you fly ?
phf: inertia, there was a point when amtrak was also inexpensive in addition to being cheap
mircea_popescu: nothing but terrorists in this chan i swear.
mircea_popescu: but i gotta say "why don't you fly" "inertia" is a damned good answer.
mircea_popescu: whenever something doesn't fly that's usually why
phf: mp gets them every time
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform how is unpadded rsa supposed to work ?
asciilifeform: the 'padding' thing is an entirely separate animal
mircea_popescu: from hashing ?
phf: i'm waiting for this channel to catch up with me, i'm going to go through some routine dc check, like a metal scanner or security clearance, and it's going to be "step this way sir." some gruff looking gentleman holding b-a printouts..
mircea_popescu: they're fucking inverse functions. one does many-to-one, the other needs an arbitrary bytecount.
asciilifeform: phf: nah it'll be quick and humane, more of a michael hastings sort of affair.
mircea_popescu: phf link them to the place where ytou said you're against sedition.
mod6: that might have been a different d00d
asciilifeform: iirc it was midnightmagic
mircea_popescu: what, different dood on the internet ?
mircea_popescu: what is this.
mod6: haha. i recall there was a guy before phf's time that was like, "i can't hang in here! too much sedition!" or something
mircea_popescu: been a bunch of those.
mod6: fair enough
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'padding' is a misnomer for a variety of possible processes, all of which have the objective of making sure that a message is never close in phase-space to another plausible message
asciilifeform: (and especially not close in the phase space of cryptographic malleability, for the kind of crypto in use)
assbot: over 18? ... ( )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform aha.
mircea_popescu: but just as far as the general principle goes. how are you going to do "padding" w/o hashing ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: can do a one-to-many permutation.
asciilifeform: yes, expensive.
mircea_popescu: and moreover, just as bad as hashing.
mircea_popescu: provably mno or just mno.
asciilifeform: whaddayamean, i gotta prove
asciilifeform now will have to prove, pissed
mircea_popescu: heh mkay.
asciilifeform goes off to eat dinner before it dies a 2nd time
mircea_popescu: and more-moreover, your one-to-manyh permutation will be implemented as a hash fun ction.
mod6: ah cool, you got a chance to walk through there!
mod6: eh, maybe not the same place
mod6: lol during kindergarten years
mod6: arg! i gotta finish the documentation on this thing so i can play new eulora!
mircea_popescu: !up mitch_callahan
mircea_popescu: mod6 maybe you're thinking recoleta. i did that one a while back.
mircea_popescu: i think at least.\
mitch_callahan: sweet, voiced up. :)
asciilifeform still needs to post his recoleta pics
asciilifeform: fully 90% of what was in the camera, even.
mircea_popescu: who're you, mitch_callahan
mitch_callahan: mircea_popescu, I was using menahem, but my key expired.
mitch_callahan: n00b mistake, bitcoin-assets is my crypto 101
mitch_callahan: i wanted to change my nick anyhow
mircea_popescu: !rated menahem
assbot: You rated user menahem on 26-Apr-2015, with a rating of 1, and supplied these additional notes: New blood.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i discovered a new japanese restaurant (in china town) whereby i had an exceptional peruan soup.
mircea_popescu: i poured a little on the floor for your soul.
asciilifeform honoured
