mircea_popescu: as fucking if, these morons trying to "write the news" as per 1980s usg.blue recipes. what are they, stuck with old magazines in an outhouse or something ?
BingoBoingo: Yes, and they try to use "poetic license" as they do it

BingoBoingo: Thankfully Uruguay is a small country and I am young. They will not like it, but because I am young I have time to spend in the pursuit of lifting them.

mircea_popescu: committed huh ?
BingoBoingo: I desperately need higher purpose in my life. Gloria the Peruana adores me so much it is ridiculous. My sex life offer no resistance in the medium. Pizarro is a struggle and I pursue that among peers.

BingoBoingo: lol, did she really just cut the family out of her international move?
mircea_popescu: i dunno, some weird drama. i guess fambly figured they owned her or soemthing.
BingoBoingo: Anyways, after spending more time here I went from seeing contrasts versus Argentines on landing, to similarities to Argentines during the time ben_vulpes was here, to now accepting the Uruguayos are weird and alien in a way that makes the Argentines look like hill billies
BingoBoingo: Do you still have the traffic stop set up at the foot a castle Popescu?
BingoBoingo: Anyways, I guess next time sell the car? Trade it for a pnoHe and then sell the pnoHe in destination?
BingoBoingo: In still other anyways, where I am today I see the endgame where Pizarro survives to Profitability; I continue Qntra and other writing/social engineering, and gardening someting other than container chives while a republican colony settles down in this Martian hellscape wouldn't be a bad play.

diana_coman: asciilifeform, http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-29#1867369 -> there's something I don't get here: if A xor D xor F xor H = 0 then this imposes F xor H = A xor D and so you'd need to substitute that everywhere else because F and H are not anymore free to be whatever or the initial a xor d xor f xor h won't hold anymore; more precisely: further down the line for instance at W(2) that F xor H is in fact A xor D so A does actually still appear,
a111: Logged on 2018-10-29 23:13 asciilifeform: if you have d,f,h, such that a == d xor f xor h ( or if you like , a xor d == f xor h , or a xor d xor f == h , it's transitive) then a term disappears from the eqn

mircea_popescu: diana_coman answered.
diana_coman: mircea_popescu, but uhm, isn't that precisely the example I give in the comment and which leads to the wrong value? this: but with the formula above it would be E(2)= P(2) xor 0*P(1) xor 1*P(2) xor 0*P(3) xor 1*P(4) = P(2) xor P(2) xor P(4) = 1 xor 1 xor 0 = 0 .
mircea_popescu: diana_coman E = 1 (because P = 1) xor 1 (because K = 1 and RB2 = 1) xor 1 (because K = 1 and RB4 = 1). thus E = 1.
asciilifeform: i gotta admit that i still dun grasp how to decipher unambiguously into 1 single orig plaintext
asciilifeform: the gaussian elimination thing would work if you had add (as in with carries) rather than xor
asciilifeform: but what you have instead is addition over , if you will , galois field
asciilifeform: perchance i can provoke mircea_popescu into writing a proggy that deciphers ?
asciilifeform: ( spoiler, btw -- if you had normal addition, yer algo reduces to 'multiply P by K', it'd then be exactly my 'egyptian' multiplier )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform fuck me, NOW i understand what you were on about yest --- E aren't THE RESULTS, but merely THE LAST BIT of a result. consequently, not actually eq system.
asciilifeform: what you got, is egyptian mul, with thrown out carries.
asciilifeform: they go to /dev/null, there is no way to get'em back deterministically.
asciilifeform: ( xor is == halfadder )
asciilifeform: ( 'egyptian div', btw, is pretty much exactly gaussian elimination , restated )
asciilifeform: the closest thing i can think of to a working variant of mircea_popescu's device, is where you keep the carries, and use primes... and we know it as.. rsa
asciilifeform: ( tho the reason why rsa is based on exponentiation, rather than straight multiplication-of-'plaintext'-prime-by-seekrit-prime is that in the latter variant you could trivially extract seekrit-prime with gcd )
asciilifeform: and yes if you had fast iron bignumtron, could use ordinary rsa and dispense with enigmas.
a111: Logged on 2018-10-29 20:56 asciilifeform: the basic boojum is that it aint a cipher of any kind, and the ubiquitous sbox derpery is simply squid ink to obscure this. maslennikov details how he pointed this out to 1980s kgb and got sacked.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i agree with you, this is a shredder not a cipher ; moreover -- if we for instance tried to add say crc into the message as padding, then therefore we'd be by the same hand introducing structure, ie weakness.
mircea_popescu: and i further agree with you -- it is a very strong commentary and ceiling upon the security of "block ciphers". because yes, literally, all otehrs are just this with magic-numbered RBs. which... is EXACTLY the same "introduce say crc", except hidden under so much smoke.
asciilifeform: reasonable cipher requires element that is at least a ~conjectured~ trap door (i.e. 'entry is a buck but exit is two'), e.g. exponentiation-with-primes
asciilifeform: in '16 i burned coupla months on the q of 'can haz', mainly on np-hard problems / turing-complete cellular automata, in place of sboxation. but got stuck on the 'guaranteed hard instance' boojum.

asciilifeform: of course it is possible to come up with infinite variety of garbage ciphers that 'hey it confused me!' but imho not very useful activity
mircea_popescu: "is living of course in a state of sin"
mircea_popescu: the problem is irreducible, either you mix entropy in or you don't.
mircea_popescu: attempts to act "as if you had" will result in the above -- shredder.
asciilifeform: in '16 we trivially reduced it to symmcipher == prng == hash
mircea_popescu: and that stands.
asciilifeform: ( they're the same thing, if you had a provably working one, you get the other 2 gratis )
asciilifeform: sorta why it did not make sense to asciilifeform that people sat and 'i'ma make a hash', 'i'ma make a cipher', a good x is exactly a good y
asciilifeform: ditto prng. they're legs of triangle.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform let's try something else. suppose key = 512 bit prime and suppose cipher works as E = P ^ K | 2^512.
asciilifeform: to make life even harder, rsa also suffers from 'can haz provably hard case' problem, there's classes of 'easy' primes, and no particular reason to think that we exhaustively know all of'em..
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: multiplication with snipped off top half ?
asciilifeform: how wouldja get P back ?
asciilifeform: it's the add-without-carry thing again
asciilifeform: you got a buncha intermediate addition bits that sink to the bottom of the sea
mircea_popescu: myeah. there's just no wai outs.
asciilifeform: ( in the | 2^512 )
asciilifeform: whereas if you don't throw them out, you have a reversible thing that is just multiplication, and i can gcd(p1,p2) == K.
asciilifeform: err, e1,e2

asciilifeform: ( the 'intuitive' cure, 'let the primes be a sequence of primes, no prime used twice' is still breakable with fermat )
asciilifeform: rsa & c-s (the latter, really a narrowed elgamal) are the only 2 oasis i know to exist in that desert.
asciilifeform: for thread-completeness, asciilifeform will mention that he does not believe that ecc, as seen in bitcoin, is necessarily strong -- if there's a break, we won't hear of it unless somebody is catastrophically stupid -- it is analogous to those old safes that included 10 pounds of thermite for erry pound of benjie, torch it and you lose whole thing
asciilifeform: imho bitcoin is a quite poor cryptological 'mine canary' for this reason.
asciilifeform: same observation arguably can be applied to errything else tho, so i'm not entirely sure it's a useful one.
diana_coman: mircea_popescu, we agree on the result but not on the formula, lol; your formula says e(2)=p(2) xor k(1)*p(1) xor k(2)*p(2) xor k(3)*p(3) xor k(4)*p(4) right?
diana_coman: and then I read the rest of the log; ofc
mircea_popescu: as best i can tell -- the only options are either keep using serpent or else use some kind of recursive hash otp
mircea_popescu: like keccak(keccak(bla+salt))
mircea_popescu: diana_coman did we end up with an ada impl of mersene twister at some juncture ?
diana_coman: mircea_popescu, yes
diana_coman: for the udp tester
mircea_popescu: i suppose that could be the backup alternative then : if we end up ditching serpent, we use a rsa packet to move ~1.4kb of entropy for initializing the mt, and then use mt generated pads for a cipher.
asciilifeform: iirc you can trivially extract next-state of mt if you get 1
asciilifeform: ( and from there, whole chain )
asciilifeform: gotta point out, serpent aint dead yet
mircea_popescu: yeah ; and it'd better not be, the floor keeps crumbling underneath.
asciilifeform: in unrelated minor lulz, discovered yet another http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-23#1865517 : 126.96.36.199
a111: Logged on 2018-10-23 22:46 asciilifeform: i suspected shitfork, when realized that the 501 blox gotta be a few kB most, ea. -- my pipe couldn't disgorge 501 human-sized blox in <2sec
asciilifeform: evidently there's a number of these.
mircea_popescu: a grosse.
asciilifeform: more interestingly, there was even 1 of 10/30/18 17:05:41 ERROR: ProcessBlock() : CheckBlock FAILED from peer 188.8.131.52
asciilifeform: i.e. it's not simply an alt
asciilifeform: but a reasonably fresh, evidently, forkism
asciilifeform: aactually strike that, CheckBlock is called prior to bastardization litmus, http://btcbase.org/patches/asciilifeform_aggressive_pushgetblocks/tree/bitcoin/src/main.cpp#L1232
asciilifeform: tests for outrageous timestamps, sad pow, mutilated tx format
asciilifeform: ( i'm not actually certain why we do this test prior to bastardism, there's 0 point running any test on a block that fails do-we-have-its-father litmus . really this is leftover logic from removal of orphanage )
asciilifeform: btw, BingoBoingo , re waaay upstack -- trb 'throws bastards' from the simple reason that it doesn't keep track of peer heights, and ~always~ retransmits any block that it gets and happily welds to longchain
asciilifeform: to errybody.
BingoBoingo: So, in local bullshit it turns out the closed Zoo still has fucking animals https://www.elobservador.com.uy/nota/murio-clorinda-la-hipopotama-del-zoologico-de-villa-dolores-20181030115114
BingoBoingo: Apparently the bum encampment that is the closed Zoo actually still has exotic animals including this recently deceased hippo
asciilifeform: i gotta wonder what else they've got; maybe also a lunapark where only the employees get to ride
asciilifeform definitely tried to go to this zoo, gate was padlocked erry single day
BingoBoingo: Linked stories at the bottom suggest back in 2016 while they were still closed, some kangaroos were stolen

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: phunphakt -- in ye olde su, radio 'hooliganism' (as it was called) was rampant, almost rite of passage for electronics experimenters, and penalty was pretty soft by current-day reich's standards (generally limited to confiscation of the gear. which was made from junkyardwars at any rate, so not particularly big deal)
BingoBoingo: My impression is generally Soviet Union penalties post Stalin were soft compared to current Obamareich
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: largely troo. with the exception of a few speshul trainflakes kept in 'психушка' , max term of imprisonment was 15y -- for instance.
asciilifeform: to merit shooting, had to be either spy, or serial killer, or at least illicit gold dealer (1 afaik case , under hruschev)
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform ok, how about this : let K being the key n bits long (say 512), and let f(x) = 2 * K * x ^ n + 3 * K * x ^ n-1 + 5 * K * x ^ n-2 + 7 * K * x ^ n-3 + 11 * K * x ^ n-4 +...+ 3643 * K[n-2] * x ^ 2 + 3659 * K[n-1] * x + 3659. f(x) will produce a pile of bits, this pile is cut in half and xored together, the result is cut in half again. one such half is returned as the prng output ; the other such half
mircea_popescu: is cut up into as many whole chunks of equal size to K as possible and the resut of their xoring together is the new K. stateful prng.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: loox, at least superficially, like a ok prng (for tetris at least). but how didja get the idea that it's fit for cipher ?
mircea_popescu: i didn't, i'm just fucking about.
mircea_popescu: to use it as a cipher i'd do a K exchange and then f(P-1) xor P = E. where P-1 is the previous message.
asciilifeform: these are very easy to make up.
asciilifeform: much moar difficult to say whether is worth anyffing.
mircea_popescu will now desist.
mircea_popescu: though it seems on some level this is a religious behaviour, "very easy to come up with ideas very hard to evaluate them". well... something's defo broken then!
diana_coman: mircea_popescu, uhm, I thought that there was at least ONE thing clear: namely that "something's defo broken"
deedbot: http://www.loper-os.org/?p=2632 << Loper OS - Terms -88 of the Serpent Ciphers Key Schedule in Algebraic Form.
asciilifeform: lol deedbot hates ellipsisen
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu, diana_coman ^ still needs the elementary reduction massage, but i went ahead an' posted, in case somebody wants.
asciilifeform: if we end up not breaking the thing, it'll go straight to generating the verilog logic for the key unroller.
mircea_popescu: pure xor form. nice.
asciilifeform: still needs alge-massager to turn all the e.g. (XOR 1 b21 e21 g21 (XOR 0 a10 d10 f10 h10)) into (XOR 1 b21 e21 g21 a10 d10 f10 h10)
diana_coman: it actually helps (with following the whole thing) to see this intermediate step too (rather than just directly the fully massaged version)
asciilifeform: really, 1) flatten the tree 2) group the constants together 3) xor the constants into one 4) eliminate duplicate terms
asciilifeform: diana_coman: is wai i posted
diana_coman: aha, thank you!
asciilifeform: lemme know if any part of it dunmakesense.
diana_coman: will do
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform not like xor is associative, is it ?
mircea_popescu: [bit:31] = (a18 x a28 x a30 x a8 x a9 x b19 x b29 x b7 x c18 x c30 x c8 x d18 x d19 x d28 x d29 x d30 x d8 x d9 x e19 x e29 x e30 x e7 x e8 x f18 x f19 x f28 x f30 x f8 x f9 x g19 x g29 x g30 x g7 x g9 x h18 x h28 x h30 x h8 x h9) ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: it is, try it
asciilifeform: entirely associative, and transitive.
mircea_popescu: ah yes, obviously.
asciilifeform: an' commutative.
mircea_popescu: ok, i need to go get some sleep, this is getting ridoinculous.
diana_coman: asciilifeform, fwiw this code is actually so nice to read; and no, I don't see any trouble with it nor anything that doesn't make sense (I did have to search for some of the lisp routines but that's just my lack of lisp-fu and it was easy enough to find out what they do more clearly)
asciilifeform: diana_coman: yay
asciilifeform: diana_coman: later tonight i'ma post the version with reduction
asciilifeform: ... at the end of which, we will know if all of the key bits actually appear in the expansion.
asciilifeform: which will answer the orig puzzler.
asciilifeform: we will also know if some appear more times than others, i.e. producing a nonflat keyspace.
asciilifeform: (contrary to author's claim of entirely-flat keyspace)
asciilifeform: and, if we feel like it, can apply the sboxes of http://ossasepia.com/2018/02/22/eucrypt-chapter-11-serpent/#selection-87.13307-87.14692 and produce a 100%-algebraic statement of the entire key inflater.
diana_coman will certainly read
asciilifeform: if all (a0..a31, b0..b31, ...) appear in the expansion, then serpent aint actually braindamaged in the sense originally contemplated by asciilifeform .
diana_coman: aha; let's see
asciilifeform: ( then we can say it is only brainamaged in the sense all sboxisms are )
mod6: Alright folks, my node is back up. And have re-added my list to the advertised republican nodes.
mod6: *my node to the list of
asciilifeform: congrats mod6
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in other pantsuit lulz, the emerging convention is to call trump "drumpf". because, see, if someone does, then the repressed awkwardsuckers in the audience know it's SAFE!!!
asciilifeform: lol emerging, kako was doin' it in '16
mircea_popescu: in-group signalling, obviously someone not in-group would not say "drumpf" just like that.
asciilifeform: ( for all i know, he devised it )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform eh, for every eventual hot topic item there's 5k groups-of-friends who think they invented it.
asciilifeform: but funnily enuff that was the only place i ever saw it, prior to mircea_popescu's mention
mircea_popescu: i'm not saying the pantsuit's creative or anything. i'm just amused at how fucking awkward they can get, srsly, need special words for things that only other similar idiots would be using so as not to risk conversation with someone not similarly fucktarded ?
mircea_popescu: it's exactly like an imaginary situation where the math flunkies agree to call exponentiation "expies", strictly for the reason that this way, if anyone ever says "expies" they can SAFELY (!!!!! important point here !!!!) go into a "omfg how about those expies they're so incomprehensible!!!" routine.
BingoBoingo: Eh, the drumpf thing was a John Oliver cancer. The reason has been resurrected now is the NPC meme people are using it to mock the anti trumpers. It's all part of dismissing pantsuit complaints as "Orange Man Bad"
mircea_popescu: the "safety" being, of course, little expectation to run into a "wtf are you on about, you just multiply, what's to understand".
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo right, which is the point : minority group is opressed and wanks accordingly.
BingoBoingo: Yup, cucked by their own old wank
mircea_popescu: "nobody understands us" and "our very existence is threatened, inasmuch as it entirely consists of... our inability to handle broad disinterest wrt our dysfunction".
mircea_popescu: i suppose the only moral being... "opressed groups are opressed for a fucking reason".
mod6: Can anyone confirm that 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 nodes are down?
asciilifeform: mod6: confirmed dead
mod6: Thanks. Removed from list.
asciilifeform: meanwhile, asciilifeform has sumthing vehehehery speshul, but aint gonna pons&fleischmann it...
asciilifeform: errybody luvvs surprised tho.
mod6: not all of us XD
mod6: Does anyone know if the current eucrypt tree uses keccak hashes in its vpatches?
mod6: Ok, nevermind, they don't seem to be. But I just simply pressed the genesis and it barfed on a README file:
mod6: Can anyone else confirm? Maybe I did something wrong or have the wrong file?
mod6: diana_coman's signature seems to match, as the genesis gets loaded into the flow just fine...
mod6: here's my sha512 of the eucrypt_genesis.vpatch: sha512sum patches/eucrypt_genesis.vpatch
mod6: 671a59e988d62f0c262ff9a1851b44c243d60cb7ee21b8c6f8c64338461eb9b654f002bebed0e162a5631ce5482d584e8bd5964405204258bcb9347345c66f5c patches/eucrypt_genesis.vpatch
mod6: no huge worries, was just getting prepped to start looking at keccak, and to see if there is a stand-alone binary for keccak
mircea_popescu: yes the current eucrypt tree uses keccak

asciilifeform: folx with their 3rd eye open, can prolly see where this is going.
mod6: mircea_popescu: ah, thanks. interesting that the pressed READMEs before it didn't choke.
mod6: oh, that's right, the patch is pressed, ~then~ each of the files touched is hashed & verified. makes sense now.

asciilifeform: lessee if mircea_popescu or diana_coman beat me to the pill, i'ma not spoil the exact algo just yet.
phf: mod6: just fyi i was able to press eucrypt using v.pl by patching it to use vtools's `ksum' for hashing instead of sha512sum and `vpatch' for pressing instead of gnu. http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/PZ4hX/?raw=true
phf: the hash verification is not really necessary, since vpatch does it already, but above changes are drop in (could e.g. switch between vtools and legacy with a flag)
mod6: phf: heeey, thanks!
