mircea_popescu: not all tumours are operable, is the sad fact of biology.
ascii_field: aha.
mircea_popescu: anyway, there's a valid and an invalid thing that i can readily see going under the same mantle. the valid side is an outgrowth of "no, we're not putting up with any shit, because shit reproduces itself, if you're going to make a sterile environment it gotta be sterile". the invalid part is well, paranoia, basically. "world is out to get itself!!!"
mircea_popescu: gotta distinguish these cuz the second's no good.
phf: one thing that i see happening here is a subtrate problem, i.e. oh boost is crap gotta use std c++, oh c++ is crap gotta use lisp, oh lisp is hosted on unix, gotta host on bare metal, oh bare metal is crap gotta vhdl our own cpu, oh can't do our own cpu because 3 factories. i'm not sure where that leaves us exactly
phf: in this case "broken because of boost" is more like a description of an OSI layer, i.e. uknowable things are happening somewhere in the datastructures level of things

mircea_popescu: i am sure it was the coolest movie in the soviet union.
mircea_popescu: for specifically this reason : it is the direct equivalent to the set of euler's axioms.
mircea_popescu: the flesh in the west was starting to build a new socialism, and the flesh in the east wanted what flesh always wants.

mircea_popescu: i happen to think the same is true of propaganda, even though it's an ideal object. by the time it's ubiquitous, the thing's going to shit. propaganda storm is a reflection of developing propaganda resistance.

assbot: Logged on 28-11-2015 11:37:16; jurov: soo. i have managed to get MEM_LIVE to decrease by replacing mapNextTx.clear() by mapNextTx.erase(mapNextTx.begin(),mapNextTx.end())
ascii_field: (this was the purpose of my - failed - experiment)
mircea_popescu: well... "consistent" at any rate.
ascii_field: well there are a few gotchas, think about it - potentially a tx that is in the receive queue could turn bastard when pool is flushed
ascii_field: and, as mircea_popescu mentioned earlier, there is also the problem of fragging, which none of this even begins to deal with, nor is anything like a clean/simple solution to it known to me
mircea_popescu: seems if you flush, you flush the whole thing.
mircea_popescu: mempool must be replaced with ring buffer.
mircea_popescu: and i am almost persuaded by now that the notion of chained tx must be done away with.
ascii_field: ^
mircea_popescu: "no transaction may be included in mempool if it has ANY predecessors that have not been already mined"
ascii_field: ^^
mircea_popescu: i see why they wanted to pretend, but it is fundamentally contrary to design goals.
mircea_popescu: an easement we can no longer carry forward
ascii_field: this would handily cure the ailment described last night.
mircea_popescu: yea.
mircea_popescu: i've been mulling it for months now, but there's no way out.
ascii_field wanted to suggest it originally but mircea_popescu was on a long 'this is your motherfucking grandfather's pistol and hands off' kick
mircea_popescu: i still am.
mircea_popescu: notably, this would do nothing to break the protocol. how nodes handle their mempool is really their own problem.
ascii_field: didntcha always wonder why tx deletion had to be O(N) ?!
ascii_field: i always thought this was a wtf.
mircea_popescu: i never wondered, i wept.
mircea_popescu: someone would have benefited immensely from a decent class in data structures.
mircea_popescu: of course, there's a 2nd layer of problems : had the code been neatly written by someone obviously clueful as to the fundamentals of computer programming, would we have believed.
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: in what way is the rotten mess 'easier to believe' ?
mircea_popescu: seems easier to believe a lone wolf is dumb than clever.
mircea_popescu: "whenever you do a murder, you make 25 mistakes ; if you remember five of them afterwards you're lucky."
mircea_popescu: of course, back illo tempore any class on crypto necessarily begun with a "data structures" prior years earlier. ☟︎
ascii_field: this may be edging into rms&gcc territory, but the inscrutability of the turd did its part in keeping the original net from forking to death - by ensuring that all of the forks were retarded 'swap the genesis' rather than any serious improvement of the compatibility-breaking kind
mircea_popescu: aha

ascii_field: one of the gnarliest of the req'd courses, even
mircea_popescu: anyway, my data seems to suggest that the enemy will be pushing a fork before the decade's out. whether we at that time have a counterfork ready or not is pretty much what decides the fate of the free world. ☟︎☟︎
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: enemy has pushed fork after fork, no ?
mircea_popescu: mno.
ascii_field: or we are speaking of some great wunderwaffen with actual planning & thought behind it
mircea_popescu: myeah.
ascii_field: ah.
mircea_popescu: less thought, more money.
ascii_field: taxcoin!
ascii_field: l0l
mircea_popescu: nah, just... take global warming.
ascii_field: took'em a good while to glue all the envirowhiner sects into one juggernaut, aha
mircea_popescu: so far all the efforts went more in the line of the earlierly discussed tor : nobody uses it but we keep pretending yet the propaganda machine's in place,
ascii_field: the plankton - uses.
ascii_field: in both cases.
ascii_field: and usg is, after all, mainly a plankton filter feeder
mircea_popescu: the plankton doth not matter, either.
ascii_field: to whale - matters.
mircea_popescu: notrly, even to whale. gotta appreciate : if the niche exists, the plankton also exists.
mircea_popescu: it has no option whatsoever.
ascii_field: and also i'm curious re: what is 'counterfork'
ascii_field: presumably, not classic grandfather's flintlock pistol btc ?
mircea_popescu: socialists, of which the usg is just an implementation, lose through there existing alternative. all that's needed really.
ascii_field: ^ much this
mircea_popescu: well i don't even know yet. vaguely defined, "a btc that won't give my computer hives"
mircea_popescu: but anyway, a btc with ringbuffer mempool, with the aforediscussed scoring mechanism for discounting txn, with encrypted connections and using any port is probablty good enough. hard to tell.
mircea_popescu: even "pogo-ready btc" might be good enough. definitely WOULD have been good enough, in 2015.
mircea_popescu: but we're missing this window.
ascii_field: if anyone asked me, i would answer 'a btc de-usgized from the minerals up', which means not only silicon but a non-ecc cryptosig, and a number of other refinements
mircea_popescu: this is a large part of why nobody's asking you.
ascii_field: aha
mircea_popescu: you ever played civ ?
ascii_field: sure!
ascii_field: civ1.
ascii_field began and ended with civ1
mircea_popescu: were you the derpy sort of player that never built a phalanx ?
ascii_field: mno
mircea_popescu: then threw a fit when random barbarian landed and took your wonders ?
mircea_popescu: so then why are you doing it here!
mircea_popescu: minerals my foot. ain't nobody got time for that.
ascii_field: i had the motherfucking 'play with barbarians' patch
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: the 'encrypted connection' item necessarily reduces to gossipd
ascii_field: (crypto without authentication and authentication without wot is of the heathens)
mircea_popescu: and while at it, new, pure-rsa signature scheme.
ascii_field: didn't i say?
ascii_field: l0l
mircea_popescu: anyway. whole raft of things that could go in.
ascii_field: 'non-ecc cryptosig'
mircea_popescu: for some reason i read that as ram parity check something-or-the-other.
mircea_popescu: yeah.
mircea_popescu: this will actually almost certainly be in there. gotta hurt the enemy not just in the matter at hand but across the field.
mircea_popescu: imagine, having to either a) ignore the matter or b) make a point that the evil people are not-using its beloved shitscheme!
mircea_popescu: the stuff of imperial nightmares.
mircea_popescu: but so far we don't even know if we actually want rsa (this for lack of gossipd) nor have we studied shoup etc.
mircea_popescu: !up ascii_field
ascii_field: mircea_popescu: l0l, think the thing is a hog now ? try with shoup
ascii_field: but for all i know, shoup is the only working scheme and the correct maximum of tx carrying capacity ~is~ 1% of what it is now
mircea_popescu: there's good reasons and bad reasons to be a hog.
ascii_field: aha.
mircea_popescu: as per example http://40.media.tumblr.com/2f5339ff02c6add59e46b9cd6d456319/tumblr_mg4rawQewx1ryfbpgo1_1280.jpg

mircea_popescu: (leaving to reader's discretion which of the two this exemplifies)

ascii_field: but i will explain it when 'somebody asked'
mircea_popescu: aha.
ascii_field: (there are upsides! to 'nobody asked')
mircea_popescu: ofcoursethereare
mircea_popescu: "Although the potential development of quantum computers threatens the security of many common forms of cryptography such as RSA, "
mircea_popescu: wikipedia has knowings to dispense!
ascii_field: moar pediwik
mircea_popescu: !s shoup
assbot: 12 results for 'shoup' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=shoup
mircea_popescu: oddly, a dozen mentions, no discussion.
ascii_field: strange
mircea_popescu: let us indulge then. cramer-shoup is an asym key system, just like rsa or ecc.
ascii_field: could've sworn we worked out some of the basics here
mircea_popescu: it however was not only the first but to date the only afaik scheme that's secure against acca. provedly so.
ascii_field: iirc some of the lattice schemes likewise
mircea_popescu: (acca/cca2 = adaptive chosen cyphertext. it's an attack where you sort the cyphertexts in a tree, then send them to be decrypted
mircea_popescu: eventually managing to obtain the key through the interplay of your selection and weakness of the cryptosystem)
ascii_field: is it just me or is the very possibility of acca dependent on retardation in implementation ??
mircea_popescu: well of course.
ascii_field: which is kinda why i never saw this particular attribute of an asymmetric cipher especially interesting
ascii_field: tards can ruin anything, regardless of how mathematically structured
mircea_popescu: nobody did, until the late 90s
ascii_field: when tard stampede, aha
ascii_field: and 'ssl
ascii_field: ' et al
mircea_popescu: first time ssl broke down,
mircea_popescu: a few years after its introduction to "forever fix" the nonsensical problem of "turning a stateless protocol into a stateful connection"
ascii_field: when folks start to attempt decryption of whatever piece of shit, just for the asking - then yes, acca ☟︎
mircea_popescu: ascii_field your gossipd node is stuck doing a version of this.
ascii_field: mno
ascii_field: because - elementarily - no answer
ascii_field: enemy has no way of learning anything from the attempted decrypt
ascii_field: if node is build correctly.
mircea_popescu: "no way" is going far.
ascii_field: no way.
ascii_field: which - yes - means that time quanta are fixed
mircea_popescu: suppose you build a node. your node "doesn't answer", but it DOES publish the relayed txn somewhere.
mircea_popescu: herp.
ascii_field: then i'm a tard and please shoot me ?
ascii_field: because this is elementary
mircea_popescu: how the fuck else would you make the node ?
ascii_field: it never relays plaintext anything
ascii_field: and saturates channel
mircea_popescu: no , no look.
mircea_popescu: you operate node A.
mircea_popescu: I operate node M.
mircea_popescu: these nodes talk, as properly.
mircea_popescu: node m connects to A, sends garbage. if A manages to decrypt it, M will see it.
mircea_popescu: if A does not, M will not.
mircea_popescu: A M-m tandem works to attack A.
ascii_field: only if the relayed packet travels plaintext
ascii_field: or otherwise readable to attacker
mircea_popescu: M-m tandem.
ascii_field: otherwise he does not know if a particular packet got decrypted & relayed
ascii_field: because the channel is saturated at all times.
mircea_popescu: M and m work together!
ascii_field: if time invariants are held to, this reduces to key bruteforcing
mircea_popescu: maybe. the matter has to be properly analyzed for all other schemes
mircea_popescu: than c-s.
ascii_field: normally, acca relies on sidechannels (e.g., karatsuba mult. timing)
mircea_popescu: where we know it does reduce to key bruteforcing.
mircea_popescu: not necessarily. the original attack on ssl didn't.

mircea_popescu: i know of no decent c-s implementations anyway.

mircea_popescu: iirc lips had an advantage with cyclic groups ?
ascii_field: well if mircea_popescu can locate another me but one that doesn't work a day job, he can ask for one

mircea_popescu: log(O) :D
ascii_field: aha.
ascii_field: lulzily related, i was recently having a quiet laugh at usg's version of 'p'
mircea_popescu: anyway, none of this is even practical without mass cardanos, because iirc c-s consumes even more entropy than rsa.
ascii_field: it was 'open sores'd' not long ago
ascii_field: quite
ascii_field: do you know where usg's 'p' lives ?
mircea_popescu: which already pleads in its favour.
mircea_popescu: neh ?
ascii_field: it is made by galois inc., they call it 'cryptol'
ascii_field: read, weep.

mircea_popescu: from my admittedly limited experience with socialist states... they all eat the same shit.

jurov: for decades?
mircea_popescu: ascii_field you misunderstand the "play with pebbles". it's doing stuff like playing angry birds on iphone. ☟︎
jurov: re: ring buffer - does not solve the fragmentation the moment you want to reorder txs by fee. i see it as either using slab allocator or periodically dumping whole mempool to disk and reread it
mircea_popescu: jurov you don't reorder them physically. you just keep the ring's index up to date.
mircea_popescu: actually, i suppose i should go into detail as we have no good reason to suspect we actually agree on anything but the words. so :
jurov: and then a medium txfee transaction comes you, to throw one free tx out to make space.. but it won§t fit
jurov: throw out two, end up with wasted mem
mircea_popescu: n bytes are allocated to "ring buffer", from offset k to offset k+n. the convention of reading this is that structures started at k+n-m that are m+p bytes long continue from k+n to k and all the way to k+p
mircea_popescu: you separately keep an index of what structures you have in there (offset, length).
mircea_popescu: whenever you want to add something, you put it in the available hole. if you don't have a hole you kill something until you do.
mircea_popescu: how to do either of these is a problem of optimization outside the scope of this discussion.
jurov: lol
mircea_popescu: but a firm guarantee can be offered that for as long as you allocate structs smaller than n, you wioll be able to fit them.
mircea_popescu: which is the problem we are trying to solve.
jurov: n is how much? 200kB
mircea_popescu: !up ascii_field
mircea_popescu: n is 500mb
jurov: you want 500M transactions?
mircea_popescu: or w/e memory space one wants to allocatge to the "mempool"
ascii_field: mircea_popescu just described traditional malloc
ascii_field: or rather, fixed heap size variant thereof
mircea_popescu: well yes.
mircea_popescu: fixed size malloc is what it is neh ?
ascii_field: which happens to be what i'm implementing right at this very moment
ascii_field: whole reason i'm at the console to begin with...
mircea_popescu: heh. aite.
jurov: ascii_field: what do you think about slab allocator? i know it adds a layer of complication, but may be worth it
mircea_popescu: anyway, re the <jurov> lol part : there's a very obvious optimization where you go a) i want to fit this struct ; b) is there space ? if yes fit it if no c) kill the lowest per-byte value struct in there go back to a
mircea_popescu: there's a lot of work can be done to minimize wastage in this, but the fundamental problem is solved.
ascii_field: aha this was described in agonizing detail in the original mempool thread
mircea_popescu: was it ?
mircea_popescu: i thought we never actually detailed the matter.
mircea_popescu: anyway.
jurov: also, unless whole thing is rewritten, itx consists of 2 vectors (inputs, outputs) with several objects and you want to remove all or none
mircea_popescu: it's still a chunk of bytes.
jurov: several chunks
mircea_popescu: not as far as this mechanism is concerned.
ascii_field: the way the existing turd stores tx is untenable
ascii_field: (interdependent shitweb of links to 'inputs' and 'outputs')
mircea_popescu: and for that matter haphazard.
ascii_field: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=28-11-2015#1333095 << but recently mircea_popescu opened my eyes and i learned that my desire to spend life investigating crypto and proving mathematical facts is entirely same as wanting to play 'birds' ? ☝︎

mircea_popescu: the whole txn memory mapping could be a soac thing, and you just plug memory sticks into it which each becomes a ring.
ascii_field worked this out in some detail, if anybody 'ever asks'
mircea_popescu: the motherboard has some memory on-board for the indexing and internal kitchening, and otherwise you maximize the strengths of ddr while escaping all drawbacks
ascii_field: aha it runs in 'bursts'
ascii_field: (one rung of the ring ought to be the size of the r/w burst for the dram)
mircea_popescu: soac = soc = system on a chip
mircea_popescu: ascii_field precisely.

mircea_popescu knows that he's supposed to be doing management for the thing and has no product whatsoever to show the investors THREE years later! this is the 3rd xmas.
mircea_popescu: i gotta do something, lest i get fired.
ascii_field: undercapitalized cat is undercapitalized ? afaik s.nsa can't afford even 1/3rd of a whole engineer
mircea_popescu: anyway, in the even keeled view of the matter, a person can only be participating in one death march at a time. since you're working with some other company, and it doesn't seem to be wanting to list itself, we need an engineer actually working for s.nsa ?
ascii_field: well i won't be working with $othercompany for much longer...
mircea_popescu: s.nsa can afford an infitnity of engineers.
mircea_popescu: unlike any other concern, s.nsa pays everyone ~100% of what theyr work is worth
mircea_popescu: as judged by the open market.
mircea_popescu: consequently, it could hire 10 million, today.

phf: i'm not sure what's to be done about DoS attacks though. body size caps? we have a handful of protections allowed by the carrier (only accepting messages from certain ips, etc), but ultimately can get a spoofed 4gb bundle and will not know that the data is spoofed until have the whole thing, and try and verify/decrypt it
ben_vulpes: i was under the impression that a first gossip packet was a signed nonce so that the implementation could drop all subsequent packets at its convenience.

jurov: well, the fact that packets have source and destination address is not avoidable
jurov: my proposition is that if packets signed by key in WoT come from an address, it's unlikely DoS will come from there too. ☟︎☟︎

mod6: maybe we can take these things, quarter at a time.
mod6: depends on what makes sense. i'll need all the help I can get. either we put in the work that needs doing and you have a republic, or you don't. ☟︎
jurov: well, if you want the fixed mempool in 054, gotta start now. it's not possible without rewrite.
mod6: I'm thinking that we cap further changes on v054.
mod6: Perhaps these additional major changes will go in one release at a time. And, we've been here before, but I'd like to keep the changes per release down to something manageable.
mod6: I'll try my best to steer us there.
mod6: Not a lot really remains left for v054. I'm in the process of getting all of the 3rd party deps, listed and then will sign and find a place for them on the website. Then I need to update my build script so it pulls and verifies all of that stuff from our own host. Beyond that, I just need to publish the v054-RELEASE patch I've been sitting on. Then Mr. Vulpes & I will need to sign all the vpatches and post 'em to the mailing list.
mod6: This is a clean break point to start working on the rest of these large pieces such as the mempool. ☟︎
