mircea_popescu: it is up to your client to decide if the domain "Pwgaf,H6X/LJ8yt..OLjoNn+kyfFsOG5a?FpPbf!uxOS6" should be queried as "Pwgaf,H6X/LJ8yt..OLjoNn+kyfFsOG5a?FpPbf!uxOS6" or "OLjoNn+kyfFsOG5a?FpPbf!uxOS6" or ".." or "nasa.org" or whatnot. dns just answers queries, and nothing else.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: this implies that there's basically a single dns server, though. it does not delegate to other dns servers, like what we have now
mircea_popescu: it doesn't "delegate", it caches. you know, like in sanity land, as opposed to some bs hacked together by people who didn't go to school for cs 30 yearsd ago.
Framedragger: (i mean, there could be caching servers, but they'd have to have the same up to date map of all strings to IPs.)
Framedragger: caching != delegation in dns, afaik.
mircea_popescu: they would have to be "the same" and "up to date" in the sense of dns "give it a day".
mircea_popescu: hurr.
mircea_popescu: of course not, but this because dns is broken.
Framedragger: delegate = "i don't know about this, but this guy does. ask him"
mircea_popescu: also note that nothing in the discussed scheme prevents you from doing delegation. yiu can just decide to split on the basis of the last character ; or the last two.
mircea_popescu: it just correctly orthogonalizes the matter of delegation, which is dns internal cooking, and not the client's business.
mircea_popescu: there's no reason ~you~ should know aforehand what the dns servers will tell you to ask if you look for "string containing substring x" ; and the fact that you DO know who to ask for ".com" is just another sign of the above "some bs hacked together by people who didn't go to school for cs 30 yearsd ago"
Framedragger: hmm. i'm still not sure if your scheme does not require additional customization of dns server software (bind/unbound/whatever). i mean, if it does, so be it.
mircea_popescu: it probably does because current dns software was written by goatfuckers.
mircea_popescu: and we're not playing the "bug for bug compatible" game.
Framedragger: there is a nuance: if lotsa customization is needed, perhaps time/energy is better spent on gossipd. a logistical question i guess.
mircea_popescu: this thing and gossipd are parallel anyway.
mircea_popescu: also, the customization is the job of the client not of the server. "you wanna use this - here's the standard" suffices.
Framedragger: to an extent, i would say, no? in gossipd, user would have their own "hosts" file, mapping mircea_popescu to $fingerprint or w/e
mircea_popescu: i suppose, but that part wouldn't be the first to relate. the part that'd first to relate is that you gotta talk to these servers to admin your strings. and well... talk over... what.
mircea_popescu: moreover, how do you handle splits ? maybe "trilema.com" should be owned by mp in mp's shadow and by whoever in some other space.
mircea_popescu: there is EXACTLY ONE solution to "zooko's triangle" - and it is called gossipd. it works by crushing the socialist mind and its foul expectation of "any person is any person". not fucking so.
mircea_popescu: people aren't strings.
Framedragger: so yeah, running a republican dns root would still imply "collaborating" with current internet infrastructure. reform, not revolution. something like, in those tmsr ISP discussion, someone e.g suggesting to acquire an autonomous system number for tmsr. "is it even worth it."
mircea_popescu: i'm sorry ?
Framedragger: low on sugar, broken english
mircea_popescu: try again.
mircea_popescu: and of course we managed this situation where half the conversation is here hjalf on trilema to maximally confuse the future interested party. ALL BECAUSE YOU CAN'T HAVE THE PATIENCE TO GET ANSWER THERE!111
Framedragger: the whole "patch a DNS server and run alternative root" effort sounds interesting and useful, but, as you said, eventually the underlying layer would need to swapped for gossipd anyway. in gossipd, UDP/TCP as currently used by DNS may not even work. hence there may be a redundancy of effort;
mircea_popescu: "but that part wouldn't be the first to relate. the part that'd first to relate is that you gotta talk to these servers to admin your strings"
Framedragger: and maybe it's worth to focus on gossipd first. but i see what you're saying regarding these two things being parallel. i guess.
mircea_popescu: at first, gossipd replaces the current "talk to servers to admin your strings" which happens, essentially, over substitute-email and http-sessions.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: my excuse is, i don't feel like i have enough original content to keep spamming your comments box. what can i say. such self esteem
Framedragger: right.
mircea_popescu: it's a typical disaster of commons of the republican era - the needs and interests of people not here yet figure a lot less in the eyes of the present man than his immediate pulsion of lowest order. and in 10 years the choices so made become written in stone and the poor schmucks pay for them. it's sad but unsolvable.
Framedragger: and, i suppose, republican dns server could work in a way that already facilitates session-less communication - pgprams issuing orders to change zone files, etc.
mircea_popescu: the OTHER disaster of commons of the republican era is discussed on trilema re "you can't decide what's worth doing", if you recall that footnote.
mircea_popescu: Framedragger yes, but communicatin by sending pgpgrams is already a simplified gossipd is the point.
mircea_popescu: hand-cranked, arbitrary, etc. but still it is it.
Framedragger: yes indeed; and now i see that maybe there wouldn't be too much of a redundancy there - that is, when gossipd arrives, dns server could still accept pgprams, they'd simply come via gossipd - and the latter may even sit behind an abstracted network interface, etc.
mircea_popescu: quite exactly.
mircea_popescu: we've been amply using this "alternate leg" climbing method to build towers.
Framedragger: okay, i'm less confused now
Framedragger: rather ingenious if i may say so!
mircea_popescu: yeah, what can i tell you, as ingenious as walk. 10s of ks of years old.
Framedragger: i wonder if a simpler key-value store wouldn't work as a replacement for dns server. "flatten" the whole thing, so that, as you say, dns server wouldn't distinguish between types of substrings. the latter would be up to the client, if it willed to do so.
mircea_popescu: and here i thought i said just that
Framedragger: caching could be easily done, too
Framedragger: argh.
Framedragger: up until this point i thought that the idea would be to use an existing dns server, for sake of ease
mircea_popescu: what did you take http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-14#1567006 to mean ? (it being the 3rd or so pass at this) ☝︎

Framedragger: right.
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: you'd still want r-dns to be able to serve existing dns clients though, right? i mean, things like `nslookup`, dns resolution libraries, etc - the current dns protocol? or no?
mircea_popescu: ideally.
mircea_popescu: but if a patch is required then that's fine too.
mircea_popescu: (likely the patch will come in the shape of a dnsmasq clone, which will handle stuff like "tld" as well as things like http://btcbase.org/log/2016-11-12#1566482 via settings etc) ☝︎☟︎

Framedragger: oh god. dns is defined using a shitload of RFCs. but easiest way to learn of low-level transport nuances is, well, wireshark. so, wiresharking and eating cake. at the very least this will end up as (possibly) useful website comment for future adventurers.
Framedragger: what is nice is that the dns transport itself is quite elegant - questions/answers - one packet for query, another for answer. so transport is (in principle) compatible with session-less gossipd model, i think.
mircea_popescu: aha
mircea_popescu: is it delicious cake or just ordinary cake ?
Framedragger: mircea_popescu: i'm curious, do you currently manually add entries to your hosts file? wireshark shows so much gunk flying around. like, i've got ad blockers and everything, but still lotsa facebook dns requests all around, etc.

asciilifeform: nope, that's not how bernstein's algo worx
mircea_popescu: well it's what i meant.
asciilifeform: it does not rely on writing down the formerly found factors
asciilifeform: but operates on all moduli at once, every time it fires.
mircea_popescu: s/8ball/bernstein/
asciilifeform: this recent find is an excellent illustration, it shared the factor solely with own subkeys
asciilifeform: specifically, the one marked '2015' and '2016'.
mircea_popescu: o brother.
asciilifeform: Seclab Signing Key 2015 <seclab@airgapped.sec.t-labs.tu-berlin.de>; Seclab Signing Key 2016 <seclab@airgapped.sec.t-labs.tu-berlin.de>;
asciilifeform: aha.
asciilifeform: the resulting factor - is prime.
mircea_popescu: ic.
asciilifeform: (does not appear to be of any special form, in so far as i can presently tell, but is in fact prime by every test i've tried)
mircea_popescu: so if this is some "expert" hardware that does this stupid shit, we'll be seeing it again.
asciilifeform: so it had in fact come out of something resembling a battlefield pgptron.
asciilifeform: no flipped bits or similar.
mircea_popescu: aha.
mircea_popescu: i think ima actually write a short qntra re this, thinking about it.
asciilifeform: i will add that the thing does not appear to reside on sks, though other items advertised as 'seclab' -- are

asciilifeform: https://sks-keyservers.net/pks/lookup?op=vindex&search=sec.t-labs.tu-berlin.de << others -- yes on sks.
mircea_popescu: i suppose it'd actually be better form to not publicize it so soon huh.
mircea_popescu: though whoever put it in - knows.
asciilifeform: story might 'develop'
asciilifeform: given as the key does not appear to have publicly signed anything, at least in so far as i can see with naked eye, there is no physical way to distinguish this find from an elaborate troll
asciilifeform: i'd be curious to learn whatthefuck exactly is 'seclab', the site suggests some eldritch horror from the bowels of eu academia
asciilifeform: hm, seclab/berlin inst. of tech, quite well represented at defcon, blackhat, etc
mircea_popescu: tu berlin is the technische universitat berlin, their version of a politechnic. sec.t-labs.tu-berlin is the "institut fur softwaretechnick und theoretische informatik" (ie the cs faculty of said college)'s it security lab.
mircea_popescu: they're meeting with the head of teh bnd etc on some sort of regular basis.

Framedragger: organic sugar water ftw
Framedragger: when i was hitch hiking in albania a few years back, i ate lotsa watermelons. because 1) they were awesome there, and 2) it was middle of summer, hot, so lower food intake overall
Framedragger: it was great.
mircea_popescu: yeah that entire strip, from dalmatian coast to black sea, epic watermelons. ~where danube flows
Framedragger: word

Framedragger: mircea_popescu: you said you generally like dns transport, but just fyi it afaik limits udp packets to 512 bytes (which iirc you hate). but i guess the term is something more like "tolerate", not "like"...

ben_vulpes: mircea_popescu: lol, did a double-take on the dood in the back
ben_vulpes: Framedragger: happy to hand mine over, but vvande has deeper logs and will share them with you for the asking
ben_vulpes: anyways, opennic project is ~dead, with remaining maggots deeply allergic to republican notions.
ben_vulpes: i suspect that i knocked their local usg rep into 'tilt mode' last night
Framedragger: thanks much ben_vulpes. guess i'm good for now
Framedragger: heh. :)
ben_vulpes: "gossipd? what dat. have you ever heard of i2p? what's an ethernet frame? shortwave?"
Framedragger: well you cant fault them for not having heard of gossipd. (cue everyone: YES YOU CAN). re. i2p, well its an interesting project. but - doomed.
Framedragger: bbl

mircea_popescu: and, of course, 2000s vintage imperial lulz https://archive.is/g9O6H ☟︎
mircea_popescu: (note that they quite exactly identify the exact reason gossipd makes empire impossible : "In the case of a public communications system this condition of a common symbol set with a common semantic interpretation must be further strengthened to that of a unique symbol set with a unique semantic interpretation. This condition of uniqueness allows any party to initiate a communication that can be received and understood by any
mircea_popescu: other party. Such a condition rules out the ability to define a symbol within some bounded context. In such a case, once the communication moves out of the context of interpretation in which it was defined, the meaning of the symbol becomes lost."
mircea_popescu: they built usg in not for any reason than because they WERE usg. postel's "oh noes - otherwise CHAOS" is exactly symptomatic. just like the arab mind can't quite comprehend how one who doesn't give a shit about allah may manage to drink from a cup, just so usgtards can't comprehend how one who isn't a socialist can at all live.
mircea_popescu: "but without our stupid bigotry there'd be CHAOS!!11". yeah, i'm sure there would be. for you.
mircea_popescu: "this is a technical requirement, not a policy choice" - fancy that wonder. what else is "not a policy choice" ?
mircea_popescu: and of course, the capper : "This memo does not introduce any new security issues, but it does attempt to identify some of the problems inherent in a family of recurring technically naive proposals."
mircea_popescu: because what the fuck else would crown the retard more than the pretense that he's some sort of misunderstood genius, and his betters "naive" ?

asciilifeform: BingoBoingo, mircea_popescu : consider slipping in, below sigblock, a link to the key on phuctor

asciilifeform: he said (11*10)/2 neh ?
asciilifeform: i.e. 55.

So as the story goes, a secret key that exists and is regularily updated since 2006 suddenly — but deliberately! — gets a shared factor in 2016, as part of a didactic exercise which consists of doing euclids and other calisthenics.

It happens again and again, but as most people only have a 50-100 year historical perspective they don’t see that it’s happening again. As the events that led to the First World War unfolded, there were a few brilliant minds who started to warn that something big was wrong, that the web of treaties across Europe could lea
mircea_popescu: d to a war, but they were dismissed as hysterical, mad, or fools, as is always the way, and as people who worry about Putin, Brexit and Trump are dismissed now. A little thing leads to an unstoppable destruction that could have been prevented if you’d listened and thought a bit."
mircea_popescu: yes, motherfucker. this is exactly it : your continued existence is offensive. either you desist, forget this "social justice" nonsense ever existed, and EVERYTHING to do with it - or else YOU will have started a war, with YOUR idiocy.
mircea_popescu: so yes - is your own tail and the avoidance of your own fucking holocaust worth stopping and thinking a bit ?
asciilifeform: they learned 0 from the last one.
mircea_popescu: maybe it's time to apologize for making up bullshit and calling it "global warming" ? maybe its time to cut off your balls and cut off your keyboard fingers ? maybe ?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform all the better then. honestly i prefer bloodshed to contrite tears.
asciilifeform: they learned 0, because 'thief is never sorry, only sorry that he was caught'
mircea_popescu: quite so, apparently the humanist's notion that he speaks for humanity is the sweetest delusion of all.
asciilifeform: one unfortunate bit is that afaik the gambit they used to stay alive last time, will work again -- a kilometre-thick ablative coating of nobodies to catch the gas
