trinque lols, but knows not why
trinque: this "female violence" theory is only applicable insofar as it describes something women do in the total absence of functioning males
trinque: as such ought not be discussed as any sort of cause of the thing.
mircea_popescu: incidentally, anyone (of the married with children contingent) know what braxton hicks contractions are ?

mircea_popescu: and now back to the issue : human sexuality is an intertwined ball of yarn, with layer upon layer of complex mechanisms driven over many years by the erosion of evolution. just plain obstetrics holds plenty of mysteries to the average folk (quick, what's cervical effacement ?), and so wide sweeping, far reaching discussions of third and above degree effects, such as the social behaviour of "war" are bound to be pretty nonsens
mircea_popescu: but yes, by and large men will fight "for" women. cuz for what the fuck else, aliens ?
mircea_popescu: "when he finds out his lead used the company gas card to drive a mini-bus full of whores to Ocean City" dude who the fuck would be upset over this ?
BingoBoingo: Still people suck at evaluating risk and severity. People get all panicked because there's a wee bit of nutsedge in their lawn, it's bruise. At the same time they'll ignore the bermudagrass taking over, and that shit is stage IV lawn cancer.
mircea_popescu: seriously now. what fucking trite boring nitwits are these ?
BingoBoingo: Rabbinical sheep?
mircea_popescu: dude if the company can't afford to ferry some women to the designated fuckbeach it should be rolled up anyway.
BingoBoingo: Some bipeds don't know how to budget, yet still try to business. Very sick fact, but fact.
mircea_popescu: and then ~they~ look down on the whores.
BingoBoingo: Well its the blub thing. They don't grok the more srs bsns.

asciilifeform: aaaah and i think i found a bug in a111
asciilifeform: it refused to log 'oversized' turd at all
asciilifeform: shows up (cut off, inside 'mircea_popescu would tell us which room to enter next')
asciilifeform: in Framedragger's log
scriba: Logged on 2016-09-27: [13:14:42] <asciilifeform> ACTION woke up from dream where we had 4th conf. this time, at mircea_popescu's house, which turned out to be a gigantic repurposed office park, wunderwaffen in every room, even the nazi 'Glocke' neutron generator; we sat in a great hall and drank mead and thanked odin for the gift of valour; then went to the tank room and each pulled gigantic sea
scriba: slugs, shaped like various animals, e.g., pig, out of a tank, and by the choice mircea_p
asciilifeform: there, now it is in both logs, if only like this...

asciilifeform: GIVE MOAR TO ALLCOMERZ
mircea_popescu: loller alfie
mircea_popescu: fwiw i see ACTION with the first glyph rendered as 0001
asciilifeform: aha also
mircea_popescu: ohv, possibly the world's shittiest host in terms of all the spam/abuse/assorted crap they push out.
mircea_popescu: http://www.submarinecablemap.com/#/submarine-cable/gemini-bermuda << this is pretty good.
phf: so that ^AACTION is actually how irc encodes /me's
mircea_popescu: / goes out as ^A
phf: so there's at least two bugs happening here :) somehow it's missing from btcbase and Framedragger's znc (or is it the python bot) is leaking ACTION marks
mircea_popescu: cuz generally you're supposed to replace ^A with eg *
phf: well, if Framedragger is still parsing the znc logs, then znc does it for you. it'll be <foo> blah, or * foo blah or somesuch
mircea_popescu: a leading example implementation of asciilifeform 's point re "ascii is like naked people"
phf: btcbase actually parses ACTION messages and turns the record into message-self
phf: (it's possible the message is missing for other reasons though, that's on august 27th, i.e. the day when i left for burn and btcbase was being spammed to oblivion)
asciilifeform: phf: message in question was sent ~hour ago.
asciilifeform: not aug 27.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform that glocke bs is something else. seriously, rando pole came up with some nutty shit in 2000 and the murican joseph smiths ran with it ?
mircea_popescu: "red mercury" y compris ?
mircea_popescu: the humanity.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: eh you're looking at the nato snow job
asciilifeform: (granted we dun have the actual facts, beyond a landing manifest from buenos aires in '45 where germans unloaded ~something massive~ from a 6-engined monster junkers. but the 'red mercury', 'alien corpses', etc. are what the disinfo folk spray onto anything they dun want in the literature.)
mircea_popescu: well, the origin is a single report from a pole (ie, nato) who is a literal re-enaction of historical mormon guy.
mircea_popescu: literally, the angel moroni showed him some sikrit documents ?
mircea_popescu: im surprised no seer stones in a hat were involved.
asciilifeform: if he'd mentioned those, mircea_popescu would see it for the redmercury sprayjob it was.
asciilifeform: at any rate, it does not stretch the bounds of the plausible that germany had a clumsy, bulky neutron source.
mircea_popescu: so which part of the nonsense is part of your accepted reconstruction ? i don't imagine sponeaneous margerinization of plant matter for a 150 to 200 m radius makes it in?
mircea_popescu: ~undirected~ neutron source ?
mircea_popescu: also, the effects described aren't quite what neutron beams do.
asciilifeform: forget the pole !
mircea_popescu: then tell the story.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: are you familiar with real-life neutron tube ? didja think it is ~directed~ ?!
mircea_popescu: it's a tube dood not a fucking bell.
asciilifeform: if you have a directed one, you can turn that $B into $2B right now.
mircea_popescu: look. what source of neutrons do you have in mind other than a linear accelerator ?
asciilifeform: in point of fact there are two (not counting the small kind you can make on your desk right now out of a smoke detector and beryllium sheet) in commercial use
asciilifeform: one is the accelerator
asciilifeform: other is farnsworth's.
asciilifeform: this is kindergarten material. (granted, it was not in '45)
asciilifeform: neither gives you a directed beam.
mircea_popescu: well it'd help if you said that. ie, "a clumsy, bulky fusor" not "a clumsy, bulky neutron source"
mircea_popescu: anyway. yes it wouldn't stretch the bounds of the plausible, seeing how eg tesla was dicking around with high electrostatic potentials for his principal entertainment.
mircea_popescu: now, if they managed to source a megawatt, which seems dubious, and if they managed to get the usual 10^5 power loss, which seems also dubious, even if we grant they had the concept 30 years early, then it follows that they might have made 100 watt worth of neutron source.
asciilifeform: fwiw, armchair archaeology of german physics is complicated by the fact that in '45 everyone who was anyone in that wot was jumping out of his shirt to market himself to the americans with fanciful legend
asciilifeform: it does not however follow that german physics was all vapourware. it was not - turned into the engineering works of the 50s.
mircea_popescu: well sure, but there's a difference between the Vs, which actually did land in london, and in abundance bordering on public nuisance
mircea_popescu: and mysterious single-reference bells.
asciilifeform: plenty of junk gets made in qty==1 and forgotten. but if it's bulky and expensive, and, bonus, makes for picturesque workplace fatalities, it can take on a second life in crackpot archaeology.
mircea_popescu: it doesn't seem likely the device they might have built would have killed much of anyone ; moreover the story of "fatalties" is how pubescent males always tend to lend a shrowd of cool to their fantasious fabrications.
asciilifeform: the reason i regard the matter of the bell interesting at all, is that the very same disinfo tactics are in use by modern usg.
mircea_popescu: im sure the journalist had a bunch of girlfriends "that died" back when he was 13.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: one dude who eats a beam can magnify, with passage of time and armchair, into 'many liquid corpses' etc.
mircea_popescu: especially given that it REALLY helps the story, "oh, last summer i went to this secret palace where all the girls are 19 and spend the whole day nude. unfortunately they all died. curse of the nudist palace."
asciilifeform: el dorados were moar fun when you could still hide'em in unpainted section of the map.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform any idea why it would be that fucking big ? you don't really gain much by making the outer cage 3 meters wide.
asciilifeform: same reason modern reactor is a pig.
mircea_popescu: i thought this thing killed people.
mircea_popescu: through a meter thick shield ? how ?
asciilifeform: through the business end ?
mircea_popescu: ugh. so 5 out of 7 people who made it accidentally looked down the barrel ?
mircea_popescu: how stupid are these nazis again ?
asciilifeform: again we're touching the electric wire of the mormon cover.
mircea_popescu: so it wouldn't stretch the bounds of the plausible if the nazis had an early, low efficiency, fusor-like thing ; which would have been no larger than a doberman ; and so isn't related to either some random polish dude's fantasies of "my village is special - look, that mountainside, is where thor sat down!" or whatever argentina landing bills.
mircea_popescu is fully satisfied with "precious metals" explanation re that, fwiw.
asciilifeform: since it was not obvious, i will point out, 'nazi bell' is a ~proverbial~ object, with some basis in factual history, sorta like the cross of jizzus etc.
asciilifeform: not an actual item i expect to find in mircea_popescu's closet if we go drinkin'
mircea_popescu: wasn't obvious at all, i spent an hour this morning wading through pseudoscience swamp because of you!
asciilifeform: ftr, my own digs led me to the hypothesis that germany had, contrary to american official legend, a considerably cheaper method of refining U than the idiot calutron, as early as '43
mircea_popescu: anyway. my fault for not keeping current on physical crackpottery i guess
asciilifeform: and that much of the squid ink we see on subj, then and now, is to obscure the how, who, and what.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform this theory is altogether dubious because one of the richest u fields in all of europe was in romania, cvasi-native u-in-quartz deposits. which went unbothered until the 50s, when the soviets dug them up.
mircea_popescu: !!up rAISellers
deedbot: rAISellers voiced for 30 minutes.
asciilifeform: U is really not uncommon.
asciilifeform: 'rich fields' only became interesting when the demand shot up.
mircea_popescu: i dunno. maybe.
asciilifeform: sorta like petroleum.
mircea_popescu: however - the easy access petroleum, as well as copper, iron etc was hit first.
mircea_popescu: so you'd have expected them to ; romania was an ally after all ; and they did hit the oilfields.
asciilifeform: aha, and the places there the water was yellow from the U, were mined first, correct
PeterL: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-09-27#1548932 << braxton hicks are a pre-labor contractions that are painful and annoying to the woman, can start up to a couple months before actual labor, sort of an on-again, off-again random contraction at various intervals (contrast with actual contractions which come at a steady rate and build in intensity)
a111: Logged on 2016-09-27 04:01 mircea_popescu: incidentally, anyone (of the married with children contingent) know what braxton hicks contractions are ?
mircea_popescu: PeterL word. you can also induce them through masturbation ; and the process can result in a slight increase in amniotic fluid.
PeterL: useful to know, I guess
mircea_popescu: can come in handy, if you're for instance repressing men-talking-about-women-and-society-their-own-way.
rAISellers: $register 815D59A3002D6A44F8DB493CA167734DD954024A
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: how's that work
mircea_popescu: rAISellers use !!register
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the whole thing was centered around "third and above degree effects, such as the social behaviour of "war""
phf: asciilifeform: oh you're right
mircea_popescu: rAISellers did you send it to sks server ?
mircea_popescu: trinque any hoap for wotpaste pubkey to deedbot directly ?
mircea_popescu: im getting sick of advertising mit and friends.
asciilifeform: feel free to make'em dump key into phuctor
asciilifeform: and use /download/KEY
asciilifeform: it isn't decentralized by any means, though, boring old medieval central box.
asciilifeform: but at least then it'll be in 2 places, vs 1, and neither'll be sks.
trinque: asciilifeform: actually I could fart them over to you as I receive.
trinque: mircea_popescu: yeah, I'll hammer that out momentarily
trinque: the thing's going through a major cleaving process, nearly done
trinque: logbot-wot, logbot-deedbot, logbot-wallet, so on.
mircea_popescu: but yeah, mutual masturbation with phuctor not a bad idea, if it can be done somehow so it doesn't make the ensemble more friable.
trinque: background cron that flips a "sent_to_phuctor" bit
asciilifeform: what'll mircea_popescu do with folks who get phuctored ?
mircea_popescu: what'd i do ?
asciilifeform: well this is perhaps the wrong question.
asciilifeform: what's to be done with'em ?
asciilifeform: they are, by any reasonable logic, 'dead' already. just need burial.
mircea_popescu: i dunno, pretend not to notice, see who tries to scam you ? eat their babies for desert ?
asciilifeform: there is not, and imho cannot be, a pleasant endgame for dude who gets his wot key publicly popped.
asciilifeform: the focus oughta be on avoiding being in said position to begin with.
asciilifeform: (and all else equal, it is better for a key to 'die' earlier in life than later.)
mircea_popescu: why ?
asciilifeform: keyholder has moar years of life left to invest in building up reputation of a replacement key ?
mircea_popescu: there are no absolutes here. better and worse are entirely undefined.
asciilifeform: 'better' in the sense that it is better to have one's hdd and backups burn down when you're 14 y.o. than when you're 60.
mircea_popescu: depends. at 14 you prolly care about all the nude classmates you got there.
mircea_popescu: rAISellers but did you send it to the sks servers ?
asciilifeform: 14yo still has the nude classmates to take new photos of.
rAISellers: mircea_popescu I think so, did not sync yet or something like that...
mircea_popescu: aite give it a half hour or such
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform maybe. somehow subjectively this is never perceived the same way.
asciilifeform: subjectivity is a bitch like that. e.g. to 5yo being 'grounded' for month is rather like the idea of year in jail for a 50yo
asciilifeform: while we're on the subject, there may be merit in deedbotting a lamport-style one-shot public key for the event of an 'asteroid' (serious number-theoretic breakthrough, or the like)
asciilifeform: (with which to sign a new conventional pubkey if such a thing were to come.)
asciilifeform: would also have a secondary 'fleet in being' effect
mircea_popescu: or c-s for that matter.
asciilifeform: multiple systems in general.
shinohai: !!up rAISellers
deedbot: rAISellers voiced for 30 minutes.
asciilifeform: but i mention lamport specifically because it does not rely on number-theoretical conjecture (on the other hand, hashing relies on ????????? for hardness...)
mod6: <+asciilifeform> feel free to make'em dump key into phuctor << very cool
asciilifeform: anyway here is a simple, 'low-tech' lamport-style scheme. let K be my current pgp key; J be a future, continuity-of-life key in some yet-undiscovered system ;
asciilifeform: H is a hashing function.
asciilifeform: at time T, i deedbot Ksign(H(S)), where S is a lengthy random string.
asciilifeform: at time T1, when i wish to invoke the continuity, i :
asciilifeform: deedbot H(S+J)
asciilifeform: at time T2, i deedbot J
asciilifeform: at time T3, i reveal, and deedbot, S.
asciilifeform: scheme relies strictly on the strength of H (and integrity of the blockchain...)
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu et al : see if you can find a simpler variant.
asciilifeform: note, J can even be another pgp/rsa key, if you are insuring against merely a 'key costs $100M and takes 5years to break' scenario, rather than catastrophic rsacalypse
mircea_popescu: hang on a sec im writing up this horrid movie.
asciilifeform: if K is broken publicly, or privately by the enemy, any time ~after~ T, the breaker (or anyone who learns the privkey) can try to endeedbot his own Ksign(H(S)) for his own S
asciilifeform: but these are to be rejected by the verifier if the latter can locate an earlier Ksign(H(S)).
asciilifeform: which is why for such a scheme to work, it would have to be agreed-upon in advance by the participants.
asciilifeform: perhaps this is obvious from my description, but i have learned that it sometimes helps to restate the obvious.
asciilifeform: at any rate, it is not difficult to generalize this scheme into a wide variety of 'parachutes'
asciilifeform: (incl. multiple hash algos)
asciilifeform: where you demonstrate that you knew Kpriv and a secret S at time T, and at some time T+i you show that 'he who knew S at time T now wishes to use key J for everyday life.'
shinohai: Weird why he hasn't been seen yet, his key imported to keyserver
shinohai: !!up rAISellers
trinque: I'm doing the paste-import thing. patience rAISellers
trinque: oh boy, here comes the tornado
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform for one thing, unpublished key is a simpler variant. create secret key K, salt-and-hash K, publish K. at later point divulge K. verification is one step and passive for you.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this works if your K is known in advance
mircea_popescu: known by me.
asciilifeform: i did say 'key J for a possibly yet-undiscovered cryptosystem'
mircea_popescu: this doesn't matter so much, future cryptosystem will be made on the basis of rng ; rng can work with pubkey as entropy source.
mircea_popescu: ie all cryptosystems reduce to hash fucntion
asciilifeform: if you divulged the seed, you divulged the privkey
mircea_popescu: nono, look :
mircea_popescu: t1 : i make rsa key K ; don't share it with anyone. i publish hash(salt+pubkey.K)
jhvh1: stormy with a chance of packeting
mircea_popescu: t2 : rsa is destroyed
mircea_popescu: t2+epsilon : i publish key J in cryptosystem ? which was created with entropy = privkey.K
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: here's the lethal boojum: enemy knows privkey.K at t2 and if he can get to his keyboard before you get to yours, you're dead
mircea_popescu: at t2+epsilon, everyone can verify K-J continuity ; at t2 only breaker of rsa can verify.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform but he has to also break the salted hash
asciilifeform: or hm, if it's an unpublished key, he does not. but how did you link it with your actual key
mircea_popescu: which is why yours and this are equivalent (they depend on the strength of has function)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform by deedobtting hash(salt+pubkey.K)
asciilifeform: ah in this case with the usual meaning of deedbot, 'sign with wot key'
mircea_popescu: in this scheme, hash has to be epsilon-strong and that's all.
asciilifeform: anyway this is ~= earlier algo, just with one fewer step
mircea_popescu: q was for simpler neh.
asciilifeform: though i am still unclear on how mircea_popescu's verification works
asciilifeform: say he published his J. now what do i do.
mircea_popescu: i publish k, you a) verify it hash-salts to same value and b) encrypt to it
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i get that part
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: but how do i verify that J belongs to mircea_popescu
mircea_popescu: because the only one who could make j is the one who at t1 owned privkey.L
asciilifeform: gimme an algo
mircea_popescu: what do you want, like a c implementation ?
asciilifeform: i can use to determine, for some input J, whether it belongs to the fella who has priv.K.
asciilifeform: no, just pseudo
asciilifeform: recall, we don't know anything about the cryptosystem J is a pubkey for.
mircea_popescu: well how would i know, right. it'd depend on that.
asciilifeform: it is just a string of bits, for the purposes of this gedankenexperiment.
asciilifeform: and we want the algo specifically not to depend on how Jsystem works.
mircea_popescu: so if ? has a encrypt() and decrypt() which seems like a safe proposition
asciilifeform: but to permit ~any~ Jsystem and ~any~ J in advance.
mircea_popescu: and if it further has a create-key() which seems more dubious, but is it allowable ?
asciilifeform: ok, can haz algo? i found a string J, which is a public key for an asymmetric cryptosystem, that purports to belong to mircea_popescu, and published after the rsacalypse. what do i do with it.
asciilifeform: i have the deedbotted hash(salt+pubkey.K) to work with
mircea_popescu: then at t2+epsilon when i publish k you extract privkey.K from it and check that J was made by create-key(privkey.K_
asciilifeform: so you published both halves of the k keypair, correct ?
asciilifeform: public and private /
mircea_popescu: well no, i just publish the fingerprint. as per t2 = rsa broken, it then follows one can extract privkey.K from K
asciilifeform: fair'nuff, rsa died
asciilifeform: how does mircea_popescu retain sole knowledge of the private key of J ?
asciilifeform: if J is made wholesale from privkey.K
mircea_popescu: i don't. the point is to prove K-J continuity , not to retain sole control of J
mircea_popescu: can add J' in same message, signed by J for instance.
mircea_popescu: this is, again, a very epsilon affair.
asciilifeform: by WHICH J
asciilifeform: anyone can make their own J'
mircea_popescu: J = create-key(privkey.K)
asciilifeform: and they are all equally poppycock if the private key of J is publicly known
asciilifeform: which in the given algo, it is.
mircea_popescu: it's not publicly known until i publish.
mircea_popescu: ie, until t2+epsilon
asciilifeform: at which point every beggar in every street can make own J'.
asciilifeform: this'd be handy if mircea_popescu had otp set up in advance with the people he intends to give the actual J' to
asciilifeform: but otherwise quite useless.
mircea_popescu: can just go in the same message.
asciilifeform: and if you posit the otp (or some other way, perhaps through buttsex, for him to give the True J' to the intended recipients) it turns into my algo.
mircea_popescu: nah, you just posit "one message" is possible.
asciilifeform: recall, if rsa died, mircea_popescu cannot simply pgp the J' to his current circle of friends.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: what means 'one message' ?
asciilifeform: outside of buttsex room, there is no such thing as a 'one message' that cannot be mitm'd.
mircea_popescu: J.sign("Here's the laydown : 1. rsa got fucked, this is the process to exrtract privkey from pubkey ; 2. message so-and-so on deedbot was creating by so-hashing this salt and this pubkey ; 3. this here key J was created by using cryptoisystem ? with rng = privkey.K, which guarantees i am the one that made it ; 4. please use this here J' in future")
asciilifeform: i get it, mircea_popescu reeeeeally loves the repudiability thing, but you gotta be careful not to make a cannon that shoots in ALL directions simultaneously. someone has to get privileged knowledge of the true J' or you are cryptodead.
mircea_popescu: this system presumes there's such a thing as ordering of events.
mircea_popescu: this however is a necessary assumption (seen in t1 t2 etc) and not escapable in the current paradigm.
asciilifeform: J.sign can sign anything anyone likes once J is known.
mircea_popescu: but not before. yes.
asciilifeform: you are open to mitm in the act of deedbotting.
asciilifeform: which is ~why~ i had the multiple steps.
mircea_popescu: suppose for safety of this scheme, ? is made so that create-key takes a day.
asciilifeform: this cannot actually be guaranteed physically, realized.
mircea_popescu: in general "collapsed cryptosystem" reduces one to a "either you have time-order and single-message or else you restart from scratch".
mircea_popescu: there's no way out of this, i'm affraid.
mircea_popescu: which is why we HAVE both of these.
asciilifeform: my algo from earlier requires only time-order.
asciilifeform: it is not open to mitm.
mircea_popescu: well yes, because it implements a sort of single-message kludge.
asciilifeform: aha, because single-message is not a thing in our universe.
asciilifeform: outside of buttsex room.
mircea_popescu: the correct pill to all of this being, of course, gossipd.
asciilifeform: gossipd, in all proposed variants, relies on numbertheoretical crypto
mircea_popescu: because of the whole "array of keys" thing, it'd actually allow jumping over dead rsa
asciilifeform: current thread is re parachute specifically against catastrophe that would burn down rsa, c-s, similar.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i just mean "makes mitm meaningless"
asciilifeform: likewise 'my inner circle knows what the true J' is' is not solving same problem as 'everyone who knew Kpublic can reliably learn true J' ' which in the case of serious 'for the ages' signatures, e.g., vtronics, you actually ~do~ want
mircea_popescu: this much is true.
mircea_popescu goes re-reads alf scheme
asciilifeform: btw if mircea_popescu ONLY wants to give J' to his best friends, he can do that already via the otp he has with them.
asciilifeform: no need for deedbot, etc.
asciilifeform: 'the best machine is no machine' -- altschuller
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform your scheme is actually dead in the water because between t2 and t3 enemy can deedbot in your name.
asciilifeform: i oughta not have used word 'deedbot'
asciilifeform: replace with 'publish' & reread.
mircea_popescu: at t1.5 hitler deedbots J', at t2.5 hitler deedbots S' so that hash(s'+j') = hash(s+j)
mircea_popescu: this is a much weaker standard of failure for h than "here's h(s) tell me s"
asciilifeform: so, for convenience, i'll reprint: 1) at time T, i publish Ksign(H(S)), where S is a lengthy random string; at time T1, when i wish to invoke the continuity i publish H(S+J) ; at time T2: J; at time T3, S.
mircea_popescu: also enemy has t3-t1 to fish for the pair ; as opposed to epsilon
mircea_popescu: and t3-t1 is in his control, whereas epsilon is in mine
asciilifeform: using the formulation above, describe what hitler should do
mircea_popescu: at time t1+e hitler publishes J' ; at time t2+e hitler publishes S'.
mircea_popescu: H(S'+J') = H (S+J).
mircea_popescu: and see the comments above re weaker standard and bad time exposure.
asciilifeform: mno, he would need an S' such that H(S') == H(S)
asciilifeform: otherwise Kverify(H(S')) will fail.
asciilifeform: and hitler's work is in vain
mircea_popescu: he posts it before you do.
asciilifeform: it still doesn't link back to K.
mircea_popescu: so nobody cares about your S anymore because afatk, S' is S
asciilifeform: but it isn't, because you signed H(S), the genuine S, with K, at time T
asciilifeform: and we posited time-ordering.
mircea_popescu: ah yeah s is fixed.
asciilifeform: and pre-agreement among the verifiers that said signature was the origin.
mircea_popescu: so he'll have to find proper salt-collision, h(s+j') = h(s+j)
mircea_popescu: this is STILL a weaker standard than "gimme s in h(s)" albeit not quite as catastrophically bad as prevbiously thought
asciilifeform: correct, so it stands on the strength of the hash solely.
asciilifeform: (and of the time-orderer.)
mircea_popescu: different notions of "strength of hash"
mircea_popescu: reversibility vs collision
mircea_popescu: and the problem of t3-t1 being an interval at enemy's discretion rather than your discretion remains.
asciilifeform: why at enemy's ?
mircea_popescu: now this said, a provably collision-resistant h might be found ; and would be amply useful.
asciilifeform: interval can be as short as 2 blocks.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform because he decides when you find out rsa was broken
asciilifeform: well, if ~he~ broke it
mircea_popescu: this is what we mean by "enemy".
asciilifeform: then he can sit on it for so long as he likes
asciilifeform: silently churchilling
mircea_popescu: well yes, but in my secret-k scheme the epsilon is my domain alone.
mircea_popescu: still, i wouldn't say these differences allow for a strict determination.
asciilifeform: didn't we just 'it doesn't solve same problem' ??
mircea_popescu: i suppose so.
asciilifeform: it solves another, also useful problem, yes, but not same..!
asciilifeform: call remains open for 'shorter algo that solves same problem'.
mircea_popescu: the one important salient point here is that what we would really like for a hash function would be a H so that it is mathematically proven that NO j' exists so that h(s+j) = h(s+j')
asciilifeform: this is provably impossible
asciilifeform: think about it for a minute.
mircea_popescu: hey, you're breaking rsa over there, do some useful stuff!
asciilifeform opens his circle-squaring tool chest.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i don't require that len(h(x)) < len(x).
trinque: deedbot back in a moment.
asciilifeform: this is probably a good time to remind readers that hash algos as we have them today (incl., yes, keccak) are pseudoscientific kit, similar to the block ciphers, rather than items where the strength is of some provable kind
asciilifeform: and that the 'do trapdoors exist' fundamental question is not only not settled, but afaik there is not the faintest clue where one might begin from to settle it, nor what the proof would look like.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform t1 you publish K.sign(hash(S)) ; time t2 you publish J.sign(hash(S+S')) ; time t3 you publish S and S' thus proving J knew before everyone else.
mircea_popescu: still simpler than your thing, and imo better collision resistance (now h(s) = h(s+s') is required which iirc is tougher than (s+x) = (s+y) )
asciilifeform: this question does not, afaik, have an answer, mircea_popescu
mircea_popescu: just vague memories from back when i knew friends with rainbow tables.
asciilifeform: not a ~general~ answer
mircea_popescu: entirely lens polisher apocripha.
asciilifeform: it had answers for some peculiarly braindead hash algos from the '90s, yes.
asciilifeform: there is no expectation that modern-day ones will fail along same fault-lines.
asciilifeform: (when's the last time you made a rainbow table.)
mircea_popescu: like last week, lol. eulora db work has a lot of similarities.
mircea_popescu: the bitch with high level cognition, be it math, fucking, programming horses, riding computers et all is that you never fucking know which the same thing you'll be doing this time
mircea_popescu: it's pretty trippy/
asciilifeform adjusts stirrups on his comp
mircea_popescu: i propose to you that if jockeys were sent to write software and code monkeys sent to ride horses, the overal results would sum to more.
