mircea_popescu: why am i reading this shit anyway. /me skips it.
adlai: AIUI (and that's capitalized for a reason -- he may disagree with me, as might any other educated reader of his papers and drafts) , there could be a system wherein clients publish blocks at some frequency, wherein some of the blocks are not valid "bitcoin-according-to-satoshi" blocks, but you still get a sense of how likely is the apparance of the next "bitcoin-as-in-satoshi" block
asciilifeform: WHY
adlai: ask him!
asciilifeform: should this be a thing
asciilifeform: HE isn't here
adlai: /pm bsm117532 or whatever his nick is today :(

adlai: so you met kanzure irl?
adlai has seen him on youtube, this is roughly the same?

mircea_popescu: unrelatedly, i wonder if anyone appreciates just how much their social skills, and generally speaking mental kernel improved as a result of interaction with #trilema.
mircea_popescu: and i don't just mean the regulars. whole departments of teh usgistan got more education at work than in "college".
asciilifeform: they typically go to the uni i went to, mircea_popescu . and know what they study? 'journalism'.
mircea_popescu: aha.

asciilifeform: it was 'undocumented' but everybody knew where the leprosorium was.

asciilifeform: kmalkki: now more interestingly, hdt is simply a protocol on top of jtag, imho the main scientific interest in the smartprobe fw would be to extract the protocol.

asciilifeform: kmalkki: how did you determine the fact about the sha256 at boot ?
kmalkki: documentation only
asciilifeform: ... consider sharing ?
mircea_popescu: kmalkki> 0x40 N bytes public exponent (N = 0x100 for RSA-2048) << o seriously, e is 256 bits long ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: i just verified, indeed, they left a 2048-bit long chunk of bits for the 65537 to live in !
asciilifeform: in all of the keys.
mircea_popescu: nuts.
kmalkki: 256 bytes or 2048 bits
mircea_popescu: o right, because it's rsa 2048, so e should be 2048 bits. makes sense >.<
asciilifeform: hey, futureproof!11111
mircea_popescu: right.
kmalkki: note that RtmPubSigned.key[0x14..0x23] == AmdPubKey.bin[0x04..0x13]
asciilifeform: i did notice.
asciilifeform: they are constant for each blobset.

mircea_popescu: cosmic ray protection ? ☟︎
mircea_popescu: in entirely unrelated nonlulz, "Todos los derechos individuales reconocidos y consagrados por la Constitución Nacional están sujetos a las limitaciones o modificaciones que los derechos de la sociedad imponen, es decir, a un poder de reglamentación con fines de conveniencia social y seguridad común, como que el bienestar y prosperidad general es precisamente uno de los primordiales objetivos de todo estatuto constituciona
mircea_popescu: l, y particularmente del nuestro, según reza con toda claridad su propio preámbulo."
mircea_popescu: what is a socialist state ? why, any state that purports to hold individual rights hostage to imaginary "rights of society".
asciilifeform: ok, so,
asciilifeform: blob = open(sys.argv[1], 'rb').read()
asciilifeform: (exp_size, mod_size) = struct.unpack_from("<II", blob, 0x38)
asciilifeform: exp_size /= 8
asciilifeform: mod_size /= 8
asciilifeform: exp = blob[0x40 : 0x40 + exp_size]
asciilifeform: mod = blob[0x40 + exp_size : 0x40 + exp_size + mod_size]
asciilifeform: in python, gives (little-endian) extracts of exp and mod.
asciilifeform: kmalkki: this would suggest that the modulus is stored big-endian ?!
deedbot: http://deedbot.org/bundle-432852.txt
asciilifeform: otherwise, in the case of the 1st one seen here, http://wotpaste.cascadianhacker.com/pastes/wv3x3/?raw=true , it would be even?!
asciilifeform: http://btcbase.org/log/2016-10-04#1552874 << evidently not, they are not functions of the exponent or modulus (they stay constant across variations in both of the latter) ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2016-10-04 18:44 mircea_popescu: cosmic ray protection ?
mircea_popescu: hm.
kmalkki: where exactly do you see the even number
mircea_popescu: kmalkki he means, if it's read as little-endian, it ends with a 0 bit
asciilifeform: cc df 66 cf littleendianized
asciilifeform: 0xcc == 0b11001100 .
asciilifeform: observe that the exponents are 01 00 01 00 00 .......
asciilifeform: i.e. little-endian.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform then again the next one... 5c 7f 11 22
mircea_popescu: both 22 and 5c are even
asciilifeform: nono
asciilifeform: that next one has a selfsig
asciilifeform: as kmalkki pointed out earlier.
mircea_popescu: ah right you are it does
mircea_popescu: nm
asciilifeform: the master key, interestingly, has no self-sig.
asciilifeform: nor any checksums, it would appear.
kmalkki: but bootrom supposedly contains SHA-256 hash of master key
asciilifeform: and - unless i am hallucinating - has an even N
asciilifeform: kmalkki: this would not be a surprising way to do it - sha is easy to hardwareize, rsa - not so easy
asciilifeform: but i bet that it'd happily eat a collided turd
asciilifeform: though if it really has an even N...
mircea_popescu: there doesn't seem to be much restriction of form whatsoever ; not even of size, re that collided turd.
asciilifeform: aha.
mircea_popescu: did sha256 have an extension attack or am i confusing it
mircea_popescu: iirc it's like md5 based on merkle construction yes ?
asciilifeform: yes, but does not help in this case
asciilifeform: thing hashes a fixed-length turd, it would seem.
asciilifeform: (and if it did not, i still don't see how glomming bits onto the payload would change the outcome of the verification)
asciilifeform: kmalkki: do you know whether anyone has read out the mask rom ?
asciilifeform: where the actual verification routine lives
kmalkki: not that I know of
kmalkki: whether it is mask rom or fused hash at production is also unknown
mircea_popescu: time to bust out ye olde microscope huh. you got a chip alf ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: plenty, but no electron microscope.
asciilifeform: nor dirigible.
mircea_popescu: eh, hitachi s5000s start at what, 70k ?
mircea_popescu: anyway /me had the idea you got one in your garage, nfi why exactly.
asciilifeform: i am not a wealthy man, mircea_popescu .
asciilifeform: incidentally, the moduli in the self-signed blobs end in : d6 e1 1c ec ; 46 0a d0 9a ; be fe 39 b6 ; 2c c3 f2 a2 ; 46 0a d0 9a ; 13 7d e7 c3 .
asciilifeform: yes, the parsed-out mods.
asciilifeform: they parse.
asciilifeform: does anyone see where this is goign
asciilifeform: *going

deedbot: kmalkki voiced for 30 minutes.
ben_vulpes claps and bounces in his seat
mircea_popescu: kmalkki seriously, register your key so you don't keep being silenced.
asciilifeform: all but the last is littleendian-even.
asciilifeform: kmalkki: also interestingly, the turdlets are supposedly arm-compatible, and - to naked eye, seeing strings - plainly unciphered, but they do not appear to disassemble cleanly as either big- or little-endian arm.
mircea_popescu: trustlets! not turdlets! lmao!
asciilifeform: (conceivably the cheapest way to read out the boot rom would be to get arbitrary code execution in the stock turdlet)
kmalkki: maybe I got this all wrong, but could [0x140] contain the LSB of the entire modulus
asciilifeform: hm
asciilifeform: that would make sense
kmalkki: docs have no mention of endianness
asciilifeform: no but if it follows same pattern as the exponent
asciilifeform: ok these then all become sane-looking rsa moduli.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu et al ^ .
mircea_popescu: right.
mircea_popescu: phuctor hopper takes republican e,N,comment format for rsa yes ?
asciilifeform: only via Framedragger's script
asciilifeform: which i can't seem to find a copy of
mircea_popescu: o.O
asciilifeform: (phuctor is very deeply baked around rfc4880 and expects all db entries to parse by it, and changing this would be a titanic labour)
mircea_popescu: i dun thnk he ever actually published it
mircea_popescu: there is of course jurov's http://explo.yt/post/2016/05/20/Parsing-OpenSSH-RSA-keys-in-Python ☟︎

mircea_popescu: !~later tell asciilifeform we din' lose nuttin
jhvh1: mircea_popescu: The operation succeeded.
asciilifeform: oh huh, possibly jurov's thing will work
asciilifeform: and neato.
mircea_popescu: afaik Framedragger didn't do so much to it as to justify repub ; he just used jurov's thing. mebbe i'm wrong, but anyway.
mircea_popescu: was teh impression i got.
asciilifeform: anyway about to try jurov's.
kmalkki: gotta go. ping me in #coreboot if there's more guestions
asciilifeform: thank you for your finds, kmalkki . please come back, and make pgp key
