PeterL: hi everybody
PeterL: so I felt like taking a stab at gossipd, take a look?
asciilifeform: PeterL: how does this one differ from that last d00d's, with the heathen rsa ?
PeterL: I took a stab at writing my own rsa
asciilifeform: in a lang with gc?!
PeterL: and so it uses your proposed "virtual otp" straight rsa encryption
PeterL: well, this is just a prototype
asciilifeform: also running mpfhf on incoming packets is lulzy
asciilifeform: ( esp one written in gclang )
asciilifeform: how many hours does this thing eat per packet ?
PeterL: it does not run mpfhf on packets, that was just a way to hash to get a name for keys
asciilifeform: i'm doomed to actually read this, arenti
PeterL: not really vital to anything involved, that could just as well use any other hashing function
asciilifeform puts on conveyor
PeterL: criticism is welcome!
PeterL: it is not a very long program
asciilifeform: PeterL: i have to rain on the parade, but i dun see what you win from writing own rsa in this one. py arithmetic is not constanttime
asciilifeform: nor even constantspace.
PeterL: it also serves as a practice for me for understanding rsa algorithm
PeterL: like I said, prototype, if it works then can be ported to using ada (at least that is my idea)
asciilifeform: also what is that primality test supposed to be
asciilifeform: it dun look like miller-rabin
PeterL: fermat primality test
asciilifeform: PeterL: are you aware of the limitations of this test ?
PeterL: I know it has limitations, yes
asciilifeform: i'ma save log space, and invite PeterL to read what i observed re the last d00d's gossipd prototype.
asciilifeform: because unfortunately all of it applies to this one
asciilifeform: at the same time i dun wanna discourage PeterL or other folks, from their exercises.
asciilifeform: PeterL: << thread
a111: Logged on 2017-07-08 00:17 asciilifeform: sina: the reason why i am not particularly hot&bothered, is that your prototype does not contain any of the parts that comprise 99+% of the necessary work of an adult gossipd
asciilifeform: i understand what is meant by 'prototype', but an rsatron (ignoring for a moment the constant-time thing) that uses fermat's primality test as the sole probe, is analogous to a grenade with a half second fuse
asciilifeform: it will kill the user.
asciilifeform: for the thick : a large portion of keys generated by the linked code, will phuctor immediately.
PeterL: ok, so if I switch the primality algorithm, what do you think of the rest of it?
asciilifeform: still same thing as of the last one
asciilifeform: ( see thread. )
asciilifeform: i.e. PeterL put in a great deal of sweat, it shows; but the result does not make my work any easier, unfortunately
asciilifeform: ( dun mean it is useless - but it is in the class of homework imho )
PeterL not master programmer, finds homework useful

asciilifeform: given as the special square thing costs 143 lines
asciilifeform: for only 25% shave off the run time, it would not be worth it:
asciilifeform: however, the difference becomes more serious when operating with smaller words
asciilifeform: (i.e. on archs with smaller bitness)
asciilifeform: in particular msdos.
mod6: ah.
mod6: smaller word size creates more iterations eh?
asciilifeform: aha.
mod6: gotcha
asciilifeform: the O(N^2) algos cost moar then.

mircea_popescu: << you have to. we'd be the first people to move to a cheaper test algo if this was feasible, in tmsr-pgp etc. but as he correctly points out, most of the keys you make are weak. an important point to consider here is weakness propagation : one weak key can potentially expose other key exchanges, resulting in a chain of (unknowingly) lost secrecy. the design will have it ablate over t
a111: Logged on 2017-08-08 19:19 PeterL: ok, so if I switch the primality algorithm, what do you think of the rest of it?
mircea_popescu: ime, but the only guarantee the design provides is that it will die out EVENTUALLY. for all you know it can survive years through sheer chance. so weak keys are a very serious potential problem for gossipd.

a111: Logged on 2017-08-08 21:42 asciilifeform: for only 25% shave off the run time, it would not be worth it:
mircea_popescu: and in typical medium success stories,

mircea_popescu: aha.
asciilifeform: it thereby follows that i could unroll comba into explicit cases from 1 to 8 words
mircea_popescu: or at leasty 1 to 7, last one isn't so bad
asciilifeform: however this would lengthen the program, and introduce 7 new algos to prove correctness of
asciilifeform: rather than 1.
mircea_popescu: actually something like "is x unrolling of y" should be machine-provable.
asciilifeform: sadly nope
asciilifeform: veeeeery little is actually machine-provable.
asciilifeform: that anything at all is, is a marvel.
asciilifeform: hence why i went for man-provables.

mircea_popescu: i thought that's done automatically already, in formal verification
mircea_popescu: if not even this works, what is "proving" supposed to mean when they talk of it ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: very bare naked things, like bounds
mircea_popescu: it's one thing to say "carpentry is not very efificent, they need hammers", but the case here seems to be more of a "carpentry does not exist, they require gas planks, which can't exist"
asciilifeform: now wouldja believe i spent 3 wks trying to eliminate the if N mod 2 = 0 ... condition in Square_Comba
asciilifeform: N isn't a secret nor does it vary with payload, it is the digit iterator,
mircea_popescu: i recall.
asciilifeform: but the branch blows the lookahead and slows
asciilifeform: however it does not seem possible to do without it. but i have not proven this impossibility.
asciilifeform: if anybody thinks he can -- plox to write in.

mircea_popescu: elsewhere in the rotting pile, "If a function is inlined 10 times, there will be 10 copies of the function inserted into the code. Hence inlining is best for small functions that are called often."
mircea_popescu: because, you see, the "phd level" wikitards are entirely bereft of a clue to the degree of not understanding inflexions AT ALL.
asciilifeform: they also apparently never bother to actually profile
mircea_popescu: why the fuck should it be "called often", when obviously all the functions that are called ONCE are inlined by default!
asciilifeform: ( every single inline pragma in ffa is there because without it, stat. signif. uptick in run time on all of my iron )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform yes, but that takes you know, like actual tools. whereas nude reason of a kid posessed of high school maths would have allowed the correct limit be picked.
