mircea_popescu: very much like, say, a trichinelosis detector. you ~want~ someone somewhere to have these, keep them well oiled and force manufacturers to burn any and all carcasses that come positive.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: elementarily, anyone intending to mail in ze bomb will ddos the sensors prior
asciilifeform: 'cry wolf' etc.
mircea_popescu: well not "anyone", but sure.
asciilifeform: point was that it is quite trivial, and the whole orchestra is a waste of dough.
mircea_popescu: not exactly. lafond makes this point, re the difference between a police force and a militia. you can't expect the police to protect you against organised violence. it works entirely and strictly for disorganised violence.
asciilifeform: there are no hoodrats-cum-nukes.
asciilifeform: the thing sorta implies organization definitionally.
mircea_popescu: two people have an argument and one gets really angry, police can fix this. random derp gets overexcited tries to ship smoke detector shavings to ex gf's mother, police can fix this.
asciilifeform: recognize, shavings dun set off neutronograph
mircea_popescu: by the time powerful entity sends ddos wave prior to dirty bombs, police's not a useful expense.
asciilifeform: they are ~specific~ to fissiles.
mircea_popescu: jus' sayin'.
asciilifeform: (incidentally, geiger tubes in, e.g., train stations, were sop for ~decades~.)
asciilifeform: this here's different.
mircea_popescu: the multi-bn-dollar neutron-detector-at-shipping-interfaces programme, going for well over three decades already, has captured exactly 0 anything.
mircea_popescu: but much like in the case of "metal detectors" in airports, going for about as long, the goal was never THAT.
mircea_popescu: the goal was the same : it gave good basis for the eventual "globalisation", which, without the derpy "peace movement" post nuke detonation would have likely never existed
mircea_popescu: this whole am
mircea_popescu: aml/kyc idiocy is fed exactly off that.
mircea_popescu: and similarly with the "metal detector" security in airports. tis for the cows, not for the metals.
asciilifeform: well the metal arches are theatre
asciilifeform: the neutronographs - not advertised, concealed behind drywall etc.
mircea_popescu: but the fact that there is a "greater good" pretext to force say germany to put them in,
BingoBoingo: In other lols Sanders beat Clitler in Indiana. GOP settled their party divide first 111!!!
asciilifeform: took some digging to even realize that they are a separate concern from the theatre.
mircea_popescu: is what's needed to then force germany to "approve" gpg4win oficially.
asciilifeform: well yeah, basic usgtronics
mircea_popescu: so yeah, it is theatre, just, you're not the demo.
mircea_popescu: judge is the demo ; and bureaucrats are the demo ; and so on.
asciilifeform: 'choose, either us or greenglassocalypse'
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this'd handily explain a buncha things.
asciilifeform: e.g., the astronomically expensive gc/ms poison detectors, etc.
asciilifeform: theatre for the chair-warmers.
mircea_popescu: quite. this argument that "oh, never seen" ... guess what ? priceless relics in temples also kept in dark, never seen!
mircea_popescu: not by public at any rate. but gotta keep THE PRIESTS impressed too!
mircea_popescu: lest cynicism takes hold.
asciilifeform: su was illustration of what happens if you fail to keep the priests in.
mircea_popescu: the unravelling of the vaccine story recently is rather symptomatic. a society that no longer accepts the "vaccinarnos es cuidarnos entre todos" is, to use proper terminology, ungovernable.
mircea_popescu: like any theatre, state necessitates willing suspension of disbelief.
mircea_popescu: and otherwise, the world is too harsh to face without theatre. at least for most bipedals.
mircea_popescu: (it is pretty fucking harsh. slavegirls may attest.)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: what unravelling
asciilifeform: << this is not a 32-mirror. i would dearly love to know how the schmuck generated his key.

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform can always mail 'em an' ask ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i tried this, so far nothing.
mircea_popescu: maybe their email client is also misbehaving.
asciilifeform: satan knows.
mircea_popescu: all hail the dark lord.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Apparently the video that earned her the trigglypuff nickname was entertaining, but I ain't got time for that. Just gotta leave the triggering stuff here for when Hanno reads the logs before his astroturf sessions.
mircea_popescu: lol. i dun think he got time for that, too buys [could have] discovering quantum cold fusion.
asciilifeform: oh speaking of these people,
asciilifeform: i know nothing of heininger in real life, but i had a dream where she was a hot chik
mircea_popescu: how is this speaking of THOSE people.
asciilifeform: it was surreal.
asciilifeform: ^ apparently has photo, even.
mircea_popescu: $up Chicago
deedbot: Chicago voiced for 30 minutes.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform until i hear different, actual scientists involved have no fault some imbecile "journalist" / online whore dragged their name in.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: cited by name in your original phuctor article series.
mircea_popescu: and not heard from hence.
mircea_popescu: some people grok the concept on seeing a dead cat.
Chicago: Thanks mircea_popescu, deedbot
mircea_popescu: some people gotta see their eviscerated children. each his own./
mircea_popescu: how's Chicago ?
BingoBoingo: ;;google Chicago
gribble: Error: We broke The Google!
mircea_popescu: eh it was broken from before.
mircea_popescu: IM NOT BUYING IT.
Chicago: mircea_popescu, I'm well, thanks. Happily celebrating the Trump victory in nearby Indiana today. How is Mircea?
mircea_popescu: going throgh reports. nothing much.
Chicago: Otherwise, just waiting on some hdparm security-erase to complete on a disk, so I can throw it into a scratch array. I needed some space to work on a large collection of files, to tarball them before archiving them on tape.
mircea_popescu: that sounds exciting and all.
Chicago: It could be worse. There is a series of checks, tests and configurations I employ before putting a spindle into production. This is because I have a battery of Seagate Barracuda ES.2 drives from circa 2008/2009 which I still want to use. Some of them are just bad, from known firmware problems and the others need to somehow prove themselves to be *good enough* to use for scratch data handling.
Chicago: At the time the Barracuda ES.2 drives were manufactured, their promotional materials were quite attractive. As time progressed, there were a number of problems with them similar to the IBM Deskstar (Deathstar) hard drives.
BingoBoingo: $up Chicago
deedbot: Chicago voiced for 30 minutes.
Chicago: Thanks BingoBoingo, how are you today?
BingoBoingo: Not bad
Chicago: Good, working on anything particularly interesting today?
BingoBoingo: Oh, not today. Just mourning a Clinton v Clinton election
Chicago: BingoBoingo, I'm afraid I don't understand. What do you mean by a Clinton v. Clinton election?
BingoBoingo: Trump is just a Clinton in huckster clothing
Chicago: Ah, okay. Maybe the claim Trump will pick Hillary as his VP has some merit to it.
BingoBoingo: Nah, their strategy is have a clinton on each line of the ticket
Chicago: BingoBoingo, you should mourn on Undernet in #political or #politics with the masses.
Chicago: The dialog there is often quite colorful.
BingoBoingo: Ain't nobody got time for that
Chicago: :p some people watch football, some people watch soap operas, some people like talking to a brick wall on the Undernet.

mircea_popescu: yet another rush job brought to you by drhoaxtoshi.labs
mircea_popescu: o nice find BingoBoingo ! check out the paydirt quote asciilifeform :
mircea_popescu: "When looking into this a few days ago, I found that OpenSSL 0.9.5a (and earlier?), which was current in year 2000, had a bug that would result in behavior just like this on some 64-bit platforms: "
a111: Logged on 2013-09-14 15:24 asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: tests for some very basic weaknesses.
mircea_popescu: phf yes, and the domain was reigstered in 2012. this doesn't serve here : they have to have history specifically in the things discussed. otherwise, it's not unlike someone applying to a job requiring 5000 hours of flight experience on the basis of his driving license from 1993. fine.. but ?
mircea_popescu: "There are even weirder examples, though - e.g., one of Phuctor's factors is 0x115CFF61CFECFF61BE9, where we see three 32-bit limbs satisfying: limb[1] = limb[0] + limb[2] and also limb[2] is small and thus likely didn't come from a CSPRNG, but possibly from uninitialized memory." << very good point. this person's actually intelligent.
mircea_popescu: anyway, in practical terms - so he references both. good for him. anyone interested in doing some work can look at either site and proceed. i can't find any useful item AT ALL on factorable net. not as much as a factor or anything. some vague discussions in summary of supposed finds substantiated in no manner. if this is science you can also be pope, why not.
mircea_popescu: obviously, they're going to copy whatever phuctor publishes, which is fine but also rather obvious.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: lel!
asciilifeform: the fastgcd thing is henninger's
asciilifeform: it is quite old
mircea_popescu: but notice they put boost on the site!
asciilifeform catches up with l0gz
mircea_popescu: how did that george costanza quote go, "but mr tuttle, consider i'm in the smaller office!"
asciilifeform: can anyone actually reply to the seclist turd ?
asciilifeform: namely, 'openssl WAS NEVER IN GPG'
asciilifeform: for fucks sake.
mircea_popescu: i wouldn't bother. let them sort it out on their own, what.
mircea_popescu: i'm the father of the whole internetland now ?
asciilifeform: well i'm certainly not.
asciilifeform: can't be arsed.
asciilifeform: but it is interesting to watch how the beast digests.

asciilifeform: forfuckssake.
mircea_popescu: hey, it's a seclist! what do you want them to discuss.
asciilifeform: the malfeasance that couldn't be any plainer than this daylight ?
asciilifeform: but, bug?!
asciilifeform: and didja know, bugs only affect interesting users
asciilifeform: e.g. apple security hotline
asciilifeform: and pgp update key.
mircea_popescu: lalala i can't hear you. what ?
asciilifeform: well, that.
mircea_popescu: look : they're what they are. this is pointedly not us. the difference between man and and is that ant is specialized physiologically. man can drop what he's doing and do something else, or pick a different set of tools, or approach, or whatever.
mircea_popescu: and does THE ONE THING.
mircea_popescu: these people are what has come to mean in english "scientists". they will do the thing they do, no matter what.
asciilifeform: i just dun get it, most of'em aren't paid to swallow ft meade cock
asciilifeform: not even indirectly
mircea_popescu: nothing to do with anything.
mircea_popescu: as children, they stuck their head in a ring. then they kept adding rings.
asciilifeform: what ring
mircea_popescu: an order to remove rings is equiv to a death setence, for them.
mircea_popescu: it is a fact.
mircea_popescu: permanent tissue damage.
mircea_popescu: so they'll fuck around with the rings, forever. hopefully their children will be raped into sanity. i'm doing a little towards that, if the children happen to be easy on the eyes and female. that'sall.
mircea_popescu: the "western civilisation" may survive only in this limited sense.
mircea_popescu: but meanwhile - no, the Βασιλεύς Βασιλέων, Βασιλεύων Βασιλευόντων is not paying any of them anything.
mircea_popescu: mircea_popescu> and does THE ONE THING. << anT i mean, obviously. heh.
asciilifeform: long, long ago, when i was quite unemployed, i wrote to Βασιλεύς Βασιλέων, Βασιλεύων Βασιλευόντων and offered my services
asciilifeform: he replied with form letter.
asciilifeform: so i unzipped and pissed.
asciilifeform: so it boggles my mind that other folks did not do same.
asciilifeform: why fellate hitler for phreee ?
asciilifeform: incidentally little birdie told me recently that nsa 'TAO' pisses on american nondiscrimination laws and never employs foreign-born folk
asciilifeform: so mega-unsurprise
asciilifeform: but lulzy
asciilifeform: (re 'rule of law' etc.)
mircea_popescu: "it's what we do".
mircea_popescu: also, afaik "american nondiscrimination laws" work strictly to protect enumerated groups. women, blacks, what have you. "foreign born white men" isn't on the list.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: letter of the law is, i quote, 'RACE, COLOR, RELIGION, SEX, NATIONAL ORIGIN'
asciilifeform: (u.s. equal opportunity commission.)
mircea_popescu: read the fine print.
asciilifeform: yer thinking of the private sector
asciilifeform: usg has own proclamation
asciilifeform: that uses this verbiage.
asciilifeform: aha. civil service.
trinque: yes, but the ways in which "success" is "measured" involve "enough blacks/women/... ?"
mircea_popescu: i never quite understood this "place of birth" fixation in [always B list] secret services.
asciilifeform: ask them not me (tm)
asciilifeform: but this is classic, 'proper aryans only!'
mircea_popescu: eh, half the time there isn't who to ask what color to paint the walls, let alone substantial matters.
mircea_popescu: it is classic "we're too inept to ever do anything so let's fuck around with paper all day instead".
mircea_popescu: i could see (maybe) why you wouldn't want non-citizen grunts in the army.
asciilifeform: except those are a dime a dozen
asciilifeform: i had an office across the hall from no less than a major
mircea_popescu: though that was much more of a concern back before transportation
asciilifeform: ru-born.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform amusingly, 100 years ago one couldn't be ru major unless german :D
asciilifeform: anyway once you think about how american sigint actually works, when it works, it makes sense
asciilifeform: (via schmoozing and 'iana committee' sabotage, which calls for pedigreed yacht rats, not maths folks, etc.)
mircea_popescu: bullcrap.
mircea_popescu: this "pedigreed yacht rats" exists strictly in your imagination, as a derivative product of 1970s Burda.
mircea_popescu: [for this side of the iron curtain folks : insanely popular fashion mag because it included patterns for all items so pre-industrial girls and young women could make them at home. first western mag to be published in russia ; and in china. easily beat anything cosmo ever was or could be.]
asciilifeform: they also exist at least in, e.g., annapolis (seaside town i passed through recently)
asciilifeform: and elsewhere
asciilifeform: not wholly mythical animals, these.
asciilifeform: i watched them alive.
mircea_popescu: sure. but not quite the same holy bible now and there as it was then.
asciilifeform: not quite, no.
mircea_popescu: i can almost taste those stockings, being what EVERY girl had for a decade or so. each. and every. one.
asciilifeform: at any rate, i can easily see why nsa would escew folks who might have actual culture
mircea_popescu: what the fuck was that sitcom called, hm.
asciilifeform: and non-'esl' memory etc.
asciilifeform: *eschew
asciilifeform: single-minded ss man must have no mother, no father, but the fuhrer
asciilifeform: or sumthinglikethat
mircea_popescu: also bs.
asciilifeform: then i'm at a loss re explaining the fixation.
mircea_popescu: it's easy.
mircea_popescu: fuck i found it. thanks god for internets!
asciilifeform: wats that
mircea_popescu: that is the place where your "yacht rats" thing actually exists.
mircea_popescu: nowhere else.
phf: ahaha, how very true
asciilifeform: bbbut it exists
mircea_popescu: phf i'm like the emperor-god xenomorph from the future, i go "what was that bullshit tv series from the early 90s with all the boats" and wihin minutes a woman pops the name. unfuckingbelivable.
asciilifeform: i went to school with the fuckers
asciilifeform: saw them, alive.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i suspect your chief problem is that you go to school with your own internally emulated versions of irl fuckers.
mircea_popescu: and you demand fiction make sense, and so end up with very... unrealistic versions of said fuckers.
asciilifeform: in which way are my emulated fuckers inaccurate ?
mircea_popescu: in the way where they make sense in your emulation in places they make no sense irl.
mircea_popescu: then this error compounds, because it's selective.
asciilifeform: i mean, these kidz ~did~ have vacation houses, did end up in princetonyaleward, etc.
mircea_popescu: then next thing you know, meta-nsa the yachting club.
mircea_popescu: you have any fucking idea how much WORK sailing is ?
phf: sometimes i still see these santa barbara americans though, old men with "silver hair" driving a Mercedes, or mostly on the metro here. they always look so lost and small, like they walked from the screen, "the last American hero" style. except instead of like punching the car window and discovering that it hurts, their credit card is denied or something, and they are like "what is that???"
mircea_popescu: actually fuck that. you ever been on a yacht ? by been i mean > 6 hours.
asciilifeform: 'work' is something you do against your will.
asciilifeform: to pay billz.
mircea_popescu: trust me. after the 9999th winch tick, it's against your will.
asciilifeform: next thing mircea_popescu tells us fucking is work.
asciilifeform: at any rate, quite obviously not all 'yacht rats' take up sailing
asciilifeform: it is, after all, exercise.
mircea_popescu: think about it in these terms : 1. i can sail, and actually used to be / could be very good at it (right body type) ; 2. i could afford a yacht, what. 3. i don't either. ???
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu doesn't fly airplanes either
asciilifeform: he has theorems.
asciilifeform: can't be arsed. etc.
phf: *last action hero, rather
mircea_popescu: airplane is merely annoying to fly. too many blinkenlichten and shit.
mircea_popescu: yachts are actually hard.
asciilifeform: hey that bleuriot or what was it, that i sat down in, had 0 lights.
mircea_popescu: in the air ?
asciilifeform: on the dashboard.
asciilifeform: none provided.
mircea_popescu: yeah well, maybe they only turn them on when airborne to save on headlamp fluid.
asciilifeform: it had fewer gauges than my car.
mircea_popescu: oh, the thing with the steel wires ?
mircea_popescu: you didn't notice the anal dildo. those things are "viscerally piloted".
asciilifeform: that was in the bench, i almost sat on it!111111
mircea_popescu: which is worse, not better, than blinkenlichten

asciilifeform: by that logic, why did i bother to write 'theory' page on phuctor ?
asciilifeform: perhaps a literate man should already know the theory..?

mircea_popescu: you can do whatever the fuck you want, including help yourself to a double serving of his wife
mircea_popescu: he can THANK YOU FOR IT, and he can HELP. that is it. exactly strictly and absolutely it, nothing more to no degree.
mircea_popescu: IF we ever want his political opinions on things, which is a very remote distant and unlikely if, WELL ASK FOR IT!

asciilifeform: i may have said this before, but,
asciilifeform: i have a ~strong~ suspicion that there are q == nextprime(p) keys in there.
asciilifeform: somewhere.
mircea_popescu: first things first. the ssl keys thing - both github and search.
asciilifeform: iirc jurov was doing something with those.
asciilifeform: the nice thing about ssl and ssh pubkeys is that you can harvest them.
asciilifeform: in the wild.
mircea_popescu: with the first half, yeah. we also need a general purpose multiconverter.
asciilifeform: (port scanner)
mircea_popescu: anyone wanna write that ?
asciilifeform: ask henninger ! l0l
asciilifeform: srsly that would be lulzy
mircea_popescu: there already exists a "various ssh formats" conversion ; need to bolt on base16/10 number and pgp format.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform had she had the common sense to wot i would.
asciilifeform: technically there is no need to convert them to pgp format
asciilifeform: i can throw them in as a specialcase.
asciilifeform: (and does it actually make sense to phuctor them ~together~ with pgp keyz?)
asciilifeform: in other lulz,
asciilifeform: 'There are multiple vulnerabilities in ImageMagick, a package commonly used by web services to process images. One of the vulnerabilities can lead to remote code execution (RCE) if you process user submitted images. The exploit for this vulnerability is being used in the wild. A number of image processing plugins depend on the ImageMagick library, including, but not limited to, PHP's imagick, Ruby's
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, it makes sense. primes are primes, factors are factors.
asciilifeform: rmagick and paperclip, and nodejs's imagemagick.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the thing's been a blessing for hackers for many years now.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform by the way, do you have any kind of werker to keep adding primes to the 8ball ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: as a matter of fact i do
asciilifeform: currently on other box
mircea_popescu: nice. so then let all these things converge. the server ssh keys ; the user ssh keys ; the pgp keys and the 8ball werker.
mircea_popescu: eventually we will have all factors.
mircea_popescu: ALL factors.
asciilifeform: it is of pretty limited use tho, expanding 8ball from 1st mil primes to 10 mil yielded... what.. 2 pops ?
mircea_popescu: no matter.
mircea_popescu: utility is not measured by results.
asciilifeform: re imagemagic, this is gold:
mircea_popescu: this is research not engineering.
asciilifeform: ''ImageMagick allows to process files with external libraries. This feature is called 'delegate'. It is implemented as a system() with command string ('command') from the config file delegates.xml with actual value for different params (input/output filenames etc). Due to insufficient %M param filtering it is possible to conduct shell command injection. One of the default delegate's command is used
asciilifeform: to handle https requests...'
asciilifeform: quite like, e.g., glibc's dyn load
asciilifeform: and related rubbish
asciilifeform: srsly the modus operandi NEVER changes
mircea_popescu: same source also.
asciilifeform: with these people.
asciilifeform: crab, pincers.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform anyway, just get the 8ball expander to work constantly, fill a core or something.
mircea_popescu: and will be nice if 8ball is published also, say daily.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: good idea.
asciilifeform: (it working 100%, but right now shuttled manually.)
mircea_popescu: and finally, you do have a knob to fill in factors into 8 ball manually ? if not add it in
mircea_popescu: sooner or later someone ELSE is going to report an actual factor.
asciilifeform: this was part of my plan for the rewrite
asciilifeform: and defo next on featurelist.

asciilifeform: well apparently not
asciilifeform: where's the priv
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform what's the source for the currently waiting keys ?
asciilifeform: << lel... 'systemd-journald from systemd v213 started creating world readable journals, allowing local users to read sensitive system log entries.'

punkman: << possibly good source for keys not on keyservers
asciilifeform: punkman: aha!
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: no key waits for >1h.
mircea_popescu: ah cool.
asciilifeform: at the end of a werker run, all keys that were part of the run, are marked nonwaiting.
mircea_popescu: so we're running out of fuel, basically.
punkman: there are a couple companies that do comprehensive crawls of pastebins, could be worth looking into
asciilifeform: i'ma saw apart a recent sks dump this weekend.
asciilifeform: and pump.
mircea_popescu: great read punkman
asciilifeform: will also look into what it'd take to real-time eat sks.
mircea_popescu: would you download the thing and take out the keys ?
asciilifeform: well yeah
asciilifeform: how else
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i was asking him.
punkman: hmm maybe, got a server with space for it?
asciilifeform: oh hey!

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yeah, "no moduli"

mircea_popescu: and why am i at this point to believe this man is anything but an impostor ?

ben_vulpes: in other *other* news, "lastpass" password sharting tool won't let users *see* shared passwords, but does provide for *copying* shared passwords and pasting into arbitrary other places on the computer. further, if one gets into the DOM and changes the "password" attr on the relevant element the browser will happily render it in place.
ben_vulpes: the idiocy on display is no longer even amusing.
mircea_popescu: it;s almost like a metal detector of its very owwwn!
mircea_popescu: oh and incidentally, definitely worth reading ; that fellow is almost exactly the tmsr antichrist : haskellite as far as computing science goes ; consumate lesswrongian as long as theology goes ; tardpedia "inclusionist" as long as political philosophy goes. pretty much every mistaken, poisonous or outright wrong assumption "modern" "civilisation" makes, he makes. loudly, unapologetically, roundly.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: 'gwerns' are a dime a dozen.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform incidentally-1 : would you prefer an actual dump ? i'm contemplating just doing posts in place, is this too much load for phuctor ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: better to chug it in on my end - impervious to www overload
asciilifeform: whereas feeding'em in at the mouth end risks stalling when there are hordes of gawkers
mircea_popescu: incidentally-2 : you absolutely should introduce a (faux) directory structure of the type /ABCD/ABCD/ABCD/ABCD/ABCD/ABCD/ABCD/ABCD where each superior "directory" lists the subs it contains, and the last level lists actual keys. google will utterly lap this up. and it's useful in the general, passive sks.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform aite, will send you dump then.
asciilifeform: the abcd thing is an idea. but i wasn't really going for an sks clone
asciilifeform: considering that we'll be jettisoning the pgp format.
mircea_popescu: costs ~nothing, it's just an interface atop what you already have neh ?
asciilifeform: it can be done, sure.
asciilifeform: i'd have to reorg the db again.
asciilifeform: (i don't presently parse out the subness of subkeys)
mircea_popescu: do it, you;ll be amazed at the "artificial intelligence" alphabet, inc employs.
mircea_popescu: "something made by ten year olds on a rainy day"
asciilifeform: infuriating idiocy
asciilifeform: 'similar observations for factors are
asciilifeform: probably a red herring: an artifact of the process used by these
asciilifeform: factoring projects rather than part of how the keys were generated.'
asciilifeform: and the continuing mention of openssl
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform he has a point tho.
asciilifeform: where it never touched
asciilifeform: but yes the large numbers are composites, this is obvious in 5 seconds to a kindergartener
asciilifeform: how else.
mircea_popescu: in point of fact composites are broken into not-necessarily-prime chunks, which is more of a function of the random state of the breaker than anything, and the actual bitfield offers no information re the process that made the key
asciilifeform: random ints are divisible by 3, 5... etc nyooz at eleven.
mircea_popescu: well so it is obvious, what of it. he can state it.
asciilifeform: the insistence on 'software bug' whereas it is plain as daylight ~why~ there are 32mirror keys, and why they are for whom they are, is the riotous part.
mircea_popescu: all he's saying is that using THE FOUND FACTORS as some sort of lithmus for the key production process is a dead end. which it is.
mircea_popescu: ah, well. it's their schtick, what.
mircea_popescu: " Could it be that all of the broken e keys were generated by OpenSSL from year 2000 or earlier? " << it could not be. a) none of the keys come from openssl ; b) most keys are post 2000.
asciilifeform: plain to anyone without a mouthful of obamacok
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform understand, the most important quality of doing things openly is that every derp everywhere is now able to try and stuff it into his peculiar headbox. there's a lot of "number worshipping" undercurrent i detect in there, sort-of the educated version of "lottery playing systems", which is more repugnant to the civilised man than the political slant. even so.
mircea_popescu: let the fuzzers fuzz.
asciilifeform: reads ~exactly~ like lottosystem folk
mircea_popescu: and in other weird news, keybase somehow has > 50k users. wtf.
asciilifeform: but artifully, deliberately, as misdirection
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i perceive no such deliberate / artful anything.
asciilifeform: well, what, he did not run the keys through pgpdump? did not see the dates ?
asciilifeform: has nfi that openssl was never in gpg ?
mircea_popescu: indeed not. problem ?
mircea_popescu: also not.
asciilifeform: (or closed pgp for that matter)
mircea_popescu: what, you expect people went to your 3rd grade ? how many people were there in that class! 20 ? 30 ?
mircea_popescu: whole world didn't fit!
asciilifeform: what ~did~ he use for his analysis ? tea leaves? sheep entrails ?
mircea_popescu: he writes numbers on paper. problem ?
asciilifeform: because what, he is a pashtun, never seen computer ?
mircea_popescu: how is it your business how he runs his household!
asciilifeform: not my business, i suppose, whether the man is coprophagic, but he forgot to wipe his mouth, it seems.
mircea_popescu: it's the internet.
asciilifeform: and now i have trouble distinguishing his mouth from arse.

asciilifeform: and besides, hot chix dun lie do they
mircea_popescu: sure, it works. and hanno boeck's ( )'s hands also work. in principle like that.
mircea_popescu: they just don't do anything useful is all.
asciilifeform: boeck took henninger's thing and ran it
asciilifeform: afaik that was all.
mircea_popescu: mno. he took it, and DIDNT run it.
asciilifeform: there was an output in his shithub iirc
mircea_popescu: and then claimed to have ran it, but then his claim ran into the jagged shores of reality when he could not produce ONE SINGLE VERIFIABLE STATEMENT
mircea_popescu: in support of that claim.

asciilifeform: this year's boeck reluctantly, grudgingly, ran the fucking proggy
asciilifeform: on what looks like just our set of phucked keyz, handily loaded from our www.
mircea_popescu: no he didn't. he didn't get as far as removing the dsa/ecc keys out of the sks dump to get a proper count of rsa moduli
asciilifeform: or rather, a pruned (how, i didn't bother to see, but smaller) subset.
mircea_popescu: snapshotted on some trilema article or other.
mircea_popescu: perfectly egregious case of fraud, and i have no fucking idea what anyone accepting anything written by him for pay could possibly be thinking.

asciilifeform: you tried, and none of them divided the mod?!
mircea_popescu: i took some of the factors we found, converted them to hex, and looked for them in his list. not there.
asciilifeform: our factors are composites
mircea_popescu: so are his.
mircea_popescu: what, 3000000003 is prime now ?
mircea_popescu: (in fact MOST of his "factors" are that, mirror bs, 19, 35, 65, etc)
mircea_popescu: if you look through the list. 5f0000005f is not distinct from 50000005, even if wc -l will count them each
mircea_popescu: and he simply does not have enough DATA in that file to account for more than maybe 1/5 or so of the factors phuctor found
mircea_popescu: ie, we have composites, yes, but about 12kb of primes.
mircea_popescu: he has more lines, 500 bytes worth of primes, and supposedly more factored moduli
mircea_popescu: doth not wash.
asciilifeform: i suppose i'll divide'em, later.
mircea_popescu: really, not worth the effort. the entire thing exists simply to waste your time.
asciilifeform: i wanna know why he popped one we hadnt
mircea_popescu: can pretty much ignore him from here out, for all the difference his miserable existence will ever make to anyone.
asciilifeform: imho he may well be the perp
asciilifeform: the original one
mircea_popescu: that a liar claims something doth not mean it is also worth investigating.
mircea_popescu: that schmuck ? gimme a break.
mircea_popescu: he didn't perp the insemination of his wife, what.
asciilifeform: easy to test.
asciilifeform: his primez will fatten the 8ball for a run and we see.
mircea_popescu: as foretold in ... THE VERY LOGS!
mircea_popescu: good thing you had hopper added.
phf: ha
phf: reusing the same connection session fixed the rate limiting problem
phf: at 31k now
phf: same
jurov: so, should i mess with the gpg conversion? or is there going to be possibility to feed raw (e,N,userinfo) data directly?
jurov: to phuctor
mircea_popescu: jurov we want the key data anyway, you know, so as to publish the pages nicely.
mircea_popescu: put the github url or w/e it is instead of the normal comment field
mircea_popescu: i suppose this really ends up in a discussion of "we need a new format for rsa keys", doesn't it.
mircea_popescu: even base64(csv of e,N,string) would be better than the current shit.

mircea_popescu: what is with this, it's self-parodic by now.
asciilifeform: there was a shit-combinator sponsored one at least a year ago
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform more's the point : is phuctor happy with a e, n, userstring csv ?
asciilifeform: right now mods have to link back to keys in the db
asciilifeform: (as in, rfc4880 turds)
mircea_popescu: "keys" ie, fingerprints ?
asciilifeform: as in .asc
mircea_popescu: that's calculated from N no ?
asciilifeform: no, as in thrown in the submit box.
asciilifeform: this is fixable but not immediately.
mircea_popescu: aha. so no cheating here
asciilifeform: not yet.
mircea_popescu: there wouldn't really be anything to throw in the box for ssl keys tho
asciilifeform: not yet.
asciilifeform: unless want to generate a pgp 'box' for them.
mircea_popescu: so is the logical thing here to just proclaim "rsa key, as per the republic, is a e, N, string tripled" and then, jurov can dump to THAT format and you'll import from that format later ?
asciilifeform: aha, but it helps to leave some place for 'whose key this allegedly is'
asciilifeform: otherwise the output becomes a pain to read.
mircea_popescu: "string"
mircea_popescu: right. so the new standard for a rsa key is (e, N, userstring), and everyone's expected to produce THAT.
mircea_popescu: alrighty then.
mircea_popescu: jurov ^ feel free to extract as such and it'll be imported later on.
asciilifeform: in entirely unrelated nyooz,

mircea_popescu: "Pedofunding A crowdfunding site for child pornography, “Pedofunding”, was launched in November 2014. It seemed like possibly the birth of a new black-market business model so I set up a logged-out scrape to archive its beginnings (sans any images), collecting 20 scrapes from 2014-11-13 to 2014-12-02, after which it shut down, apparently having found no traction."
mircea_popescu: i guess a bunch of weirdos have the usg to thank for their wholly delusional belief that child porn is "big business", somehiw.
asciilifeform: hey all folks with childrenz gotta be deluded into thinking their spawn are worth something...
asciilifeform: or they start to slide

asciilifeform: 'I'm no longer as interested in the DNMs as I used to be. I was originally lured in by the fascination of watching a small cryptopunk revolution, and I was hopeful that it would go beyond the SR1 model into multisig and beyond.

Instead, the SR1 business

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform he's not JUST into lesswrong, wikipedia, bla bla. he's also convinced "darknet" is relevant in general, that a bunch of inept shitheads were "a cryptoanarchist revolution" and, wonder of wonders, that the pill poppers had some sort of impact in bitcoin whatsoever.
mircea_popescu: it boggles the mind, what nonsense people can sell themselves on, for lack of friends and anything useful to do.
asciilifeform: frying brain like an egg with ??? also helps. presumably.
mircea_popescu: he said what he was doing, some stimulant or other
mircea_popescu: modafinil
asciilifeform: that wouldn't explain it.
mircea_popescu: maybe that's just the official truth.
asciilifeform: it is in the logz - this is the pill that mircea_popescu wouldn't even notice if he ate.
asciilifeform: prolly he also ate 10,001 'experimentals.'
mircea_popescu: possibly.
asciilifeform: it is ~also~ possible that he ate nothing.
mircea_popescu: ah, and obviously - fully dedicated to "safety in tor"
asciilifeform: when i was a bored, sn0r3d kid, reading usenet, i sometimes read the dope groups
asciilifeform: and imagined what their 'trips' might feel like.

asciilifeform: that was imagining-what-drink-feels-like.
