asciilifeform: 1 problem is that perfect uniform distrib and perfectly independent rng bits, cannot be shown to exist physically.
asciilifeform: the use of constructed primes, potentially amplifies small/temporary imperfections in the rng, into fatal
asciilifeform: the other problem is that prime constructor proof may or may not fit-in-head. infineon's method probably seemed correct to various folx.
apeloyee: perharps running rabin-miller "amplifies small/temporary imperfections in the rng, into fatal"
apeloyee: at that point might as well give up
asciilifeform: apeloyee: propose a hypothetical how ?
apeloyee: can't. I was sarcastic, because I don't see how CRT construction can amplify, assuming not obviously broken/backdoored RNG. why won't long-range correlations kill mthe "pick random prime" method as well?
asciilifeform: let's model the ideal prime-shitter. it would be an item that takes integer N , of whatever bitness, and produce the Nth prime ( or eggog if the Nth prime is bigger than the register bitness permitted. ) ☟︎☟︎☟︎
apeloyee: ok
asciilifeform: i.e. a 1:1 pipe from random ints to large primes.
asciilifeform: to have a satisfactory constructor, it would have to be shown to reduce to this and exactly this.
apeloyee: "pick random" is obviously not this
asciilifeform: in particular, gotta show that no two inputs will produce the same prime ☟︎
asciilifeform: pick-random satisfies above.
apeloyee: you don't believe in CRT?
asciilifeform: also gotta show that no prime exists , in the given bitness width, that CANNOT be chosen. ☟︎
asciilifeform: what means believe-in-crt ?
asciilifeform: i believe in the arithmetic, yes. but how to show that the two conditions i stated, hold ? ☟︎
asciilifeform: if apeloyee knows a proof for this, i'll read
asciilifeform: but as i currently understand, my q reduces to 'find The Formula For Primes' (tm)(r), a millenium-long headache for mathematical folx , to this day unsolved. ☟︎
apeloyee: plox to qualify. you want a method to generate Nth prime, but accept the "pick random number until prime" , despite in not being the Nth prime generator, but no other methods?
asciilifeform: i want a method, as stated above, where inputs map one-to-one and onto, the primes , up to the register width.
asciilifeform: the random-rubbish followed by probabilistic test , satisfies this demand within the obvious limits of the test.
asciilifeform: i can show that no 2 inputs will produce the same prime, trivially
asciilifeform: and since i built the rng, i can also be quite certain that there is not such a prime that it will forever avoid generating.
apeloyee: aha, so you're ok with the method produces junk, so long as the primes in range are equidistributed?
asciilifeform: how is it 'junk' ?
asciilifeform: equidistributed primes are what was asked for.
apeloyee: "pick random" will usually yield a composite, which must then be filtered out.
asciilifeform: this costs time, yes.
asciilifeform: folx who are in a hurry, can parallelize.
asciilifeform: ( it parallelizes infinitely )
apeloyee: how many bits/s does your generator yield?
asciilifeform: 7-8 kB/sec, depending on room temperature.
asciilifeform: per unit.
asciilifeform: ( many folx have half a dozen, or more )
apeloyee: kilobyte?
asciilifeform: aha
asciilifeform: theoretically one can connect an unlimited # of'em to pc (in practice linux kernel starts behaving oddly when more than 7 serial devices, i found )
asciilifeform: i am probably doomed to make a pci version, because of this, at some point. but so far not urgent itch.
asciilifeform: incidentally it can probably be shown that you don't have to throw out ALL of the bits in a candidate R, when it is not found to be prime, and still not leak anything
asciilifeform: but i have not yet tried this.
asciilifeform: ( the koch method, of taking R and adding 2 to it until m-r says yes, trivially leaks )
asciilifeform: what ought to do instead, is to rngize the bottom Q bits, where Q is log2(estimated prime gap at the current bitness, times severalfold engineering margin) ☟︎
asciilifeform: until passes.
asciilifeform: ( exercise for n00bz : show that there is ALWAYS a prime between n and 2n, for n > 1. )
asciilifeform: ( exercise #2 : show how many bits of input entropy are on avg. discarded by koch generator. )
asciilifeform: unrelatedly, scihub seems to finally have broken, i get 11 'captchas' in a row, gave up

apeloyee: so to recap, http://btcbase.org/log/2017-10-07#1722402 generates numbers in range [0, primorial-1]; it may yield a composite, but all outputs are equally likely, and all primes bigger than largest_prime_in_primorial and less than the primorial.

asciilifeform: i can believe
apeloyee: well, is CRT nonwell, of cource I can't clain that CRT is obvious. But I think you're just allergic to it
apeloyee: *claim
asciilifeform: not the crt per se, but that apeloyee's algo doesn't leak-via-timing, or bias, or avoid some class of prime, is not (yet) obvious to asciilifeform .
asciilifeform: i'ma chew on it tho.
asciilifeform: and yes i am in fact allergic to any algo that i do not immediately understand, because entire objective of ffa is to be correct-via-obviousness.
asciilifeform: while at the same time usably fast. which is the engineering tension there.
apeloyee: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-11-04#1733014 << this immediately smells like a magical voodoo invisibility potion ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-11-04 18:37 asciilifeform: for same reason you an' i, have 2 eyes
asciilifeform: apeloyee: how do you modulate-by-position if you don't have more than 1 position ?
asciilifeform: conjecture was, that you can transmit below noise floor, and still receive by demodulating strictly positionally.
asciilifeform: ( i have presently nfi if it is true )
apeloyee: but you claimed "just 2", and not 3, 4...
asciilifeform: it will work with >2, but afaik you only need 2.
apeloyee: i could understand if having 2,3, 4,... transmitters progressively lowering the detection chance
apeloyee: but "1 transmitter is visible, 2 are not" i find hard to believe
asciilifeform: 1 , transmitting below noise floor, is equally invisible, but also gives no way to receive...
asciilifeform: 2 is the bare minimum for a working ( again conjectured, whether it could work ) item.
asciilifeform: naturally 22 is better. and 222 moar so.
asciilifeform: 1 type of 'positionally modulated' radio, that is already very old tech, is satellite nav.
apeloyee: didn't you describe a scheme for 1 transmitter? in each time interval, pick many cryptographically pseudo-random orthogonal waveforms, calculate a weighted sum, transmit. the weights encode information. can split into many transmitters in various places.
asciilifeform: the difference is that the transmitters there physically move; but is immaterial for our purpose
asciilifeform: apeloyee: positional mod is superset of that item
apeloyee: no reason to only encode the signal in difference then.
asciilifeform: reason is so that each station can be physically indistinguishable, from outside the door, from, e.g., a defective lift motor that arcs a bit ☟︎
asciilifeform: or similar object.
asciilifeform: theoretically a positional modulator with a long enough span, could cover entire planet, with a few watt.
asciilifeform: ( and that few watt, spread over entire 30MHz of shortwave )
apeloyee: Do you have any data as to how distinguishable defective motors are? e.g. it's probably an impulse filtered with a min-phase filter. whereas fake motor probably won't be.
apeloyee: the transmitter disguised as motor
asciilifeform: what's to stop it from being exactly same spectrally as motor, if that's what i want ?
apeloyee: and phase?
asciilifeform: and phase
asciilifeform: so long as i can force the 2 ends of the line, to differ in such a way as to carry information
apeloyee: again, I have no data, but I suspect you won't be able to encode much data into it
asciilifeform: if any -- then objective met
asciilifeform: even if it's a bit per hour
asciilifeform: submariners reportedly live with a bit or so per sec.
apeloyee: simpler to just transmit 1W over 30MHz. Or 100mW. etc.
asciilifeform: then they find you.
apeloyee: and have your transmitter move, lest it be detected by correlation attacks.
asciilifeform: then i'ma transmit 100kW, why not
asciilifeform: but different problem !
apeloyee: shannon-hartley theorem. max bit per watt is when you sit far below noise floor
apeloyee: 100kW transmit only logarithmically more, but detection easiness in proportional to power
apeloyee: *is proportional
asciilifeform: i dun get how the 2 items can be separate
asciilifeform: if easier to detect for enemy, easier to detect for intended recipient. and vice-versa. neh ?
apeloyee: yep!
asciilifeform: re 30MHz, i could even be entirely wrong, and unusable , because e.g. <7 has vastly different propagation characteristics, day/night/winter/etc vs 7..15Mhz, and in turn from 15..30
apeloyee: don't pop up above noise floor, because bit-per-chance-of-detection drops off rapidly
apeloyee: hence no 100kW
apeloyee: and where you get 100kW on a moving object ☟︎
apeloyee: anyway
asciilifeform: from diesel, lol
asciilifeform: ( iirc mircea_popescu has a 800kW diesel ) ☟︎
asciilifeform: but my whole q was whether it is possible to do better than the 100yr state-of-the-art of 'keep moving yet transmitter and be prepared to lose it' thing
apeloyee: no magical invisibility potions.
apeloyee: can just decrease the chance of detection.
asciilifeform: nope, but purely physical invisibilities are a-ok. as radio per se is invisible to savages who never heard of radio.
apeloyee: to a reasonable value, but there's probably no escape from "keep moving" ☟︎
asciilifeform: naturally enemy who gets a hold of your receiver, or whatever secret param, can detect.
asciilifeform: q is whether is is possible to turn this param into the equiv of rsa key.
asciilifeform: without which -- no detection.
apeloyee: e.g.balloon tx'ing can masquerade as thunder
asciilifeform: not even from standing across the street.
apeloyee: becasue moves
asciilifeform: hypothetically. problem is to make a balloon stay up for any reasonable length of time, and not loudly show up on radars wherever it goes
apeloyee: if stands across the street, will detect. forget about it.
asciilifeform: mega-argument
apeloyee: srsly you're asking for invis potion.
asciilifeform: go and detect the static spark i just generated. from across the room, much less street.
apeloyee: you have managed thus to transmit how much?
apeloyee: in bits
asciilifeform: 1. if you knew exactly when and where to look.
asciilifeform: single-photon per bit has been demoed, in ideal conditions.
asciilifeform: at any rate, i'm not convinced that the problem is solvable, apeloyee may well be right. but i also remain unconvinced that it is unsolvable.
apeloyee: an' if you keep sparking next to detector across the street, you will Have Problems. because have to transmit enough to rsa.
asciilifeform: that there's the whole noise floor thing, neh.
apeloyee: you stipulated detector's across the street. can do direction finding.
asciilifeform: also i suspect that 'avoid gestapo' is a very small superset of the much harder 'physically undetectable'. for example, if you pirate on an already unusably-polluted band, you would probably never Have Problems for so long as you are not distinguishable from the usual polluters ( e.g. led light bulbs and other filth )
asciilifeform: *subset
asciilifeform: a block of flats, full of led bulbs, quite possible is the electrical equiv of a 10watt sw station
apeloyee: but also hard to hear you over all that noise. hence my "there's a fixed number of bits you can transmit before detection, assuming given ratio of intended recipient capabilities to enemy capabilities"
apeloyee: and assuming you stay put of course
apeloyee: so don't
apeloyee: move. preferably unpredictably.
apeloyee: (to the enemy)
asciilifeform: ideally said movement would consist of large number of geographically-dispersed stations, taking turns in a sequence not known to the enemy.
asciilifeform: this is where i started in the gedankenexperiment. from there went 'why not to have the sequence per se be the information carrier'.
apeloyee: if they're sleeper stations.
asciilifeform: well yes, in the sense that they spend the vast majority of time, silent ☟︎
asciilifeform: (receiving. and without leaking oscillator or whatever 20th century idiocy)
apeloyee: why not all of 'em, at 1/N power
asciilifeform: because then you're back to the 'if they're standing next to you, you're found' item.
apeloyee: the enemy doesn't realistically have resource to stand next to everyone. see bitcoin: can't make rewriting history impossible, lets make it unprofitable. ☟︎
asciilifeform: everyone - no. the few thou known-вредители -- totally
apeloyee: and to detect you, has to stand next ot you during transmission of significant number of bits
apeloyee: be a true вредитель and sabotage the spy device's uplink. they need a phat one.
asciilifeform: not clear that it does
asciilifeform: most of the processing is local
apeloyee: if the enemy is besieging you and watching you all the time, not much you can do
apeloyee: if you can't even plant a relay somewhere nearby
asciilifeform: if the enemy, on account of some internal psychosis, refrains from simply breaking in and shooting, there is plenty to do
asciilifeform: a serious sw relay is not physically small, cannot hide in a tree or similar.
apeloyee: serious is...?
asciilifeform: can be heard across atlantic.
asciilifeform: anything short of that, is a waste of time.
asciilifeform: i.e. 3-4 ionospheric reflections.
apeloyee: sieges are generally followed by an assault, unless th3e besieged surrender; to hope otherwise is simply suicide
asciilifeform: asciilifeform has nfi why he's been standing in line for years, to be gassed. evidently it is a scarce and rationed thing, like everything else in usa.
asciilifeform: and those who want to be gassed faster, gotta work harder, earn it..
asciilifeform: upstack : a 1w transmitter , under right conditions, can be heard across atlantic. tricky bit is how to extend this to belownoisefloor; and how to make in 'wrong' conditions.
apeloyee: most of the processing is local << if a known вредитель, that means siege. otherwise they need to exchange ~approx as much data as can be fit in spectrum. obv can't reuse the very same spectrum. hence lasers/sound/cables. can be sabotaged. them low noise receiver must cost quite some $$$.
asciilifeform: if apeloyee or whoever wants to get past the tank column, mine field, etc. and demolish the receiver -- i'll clap, what.
asciilifeform: but it is quite different problem from the original thread's.
asciilifeform: otoh if it is in the house next to mine, i have no way of knowing it
asciilifeform: what, gotta break into every single neighbour and see if they have one, lol
apeloyee: understand, they can't keep sieges on 10,000 вредителей. will go bankrupt.
asciilifeform: they're already bankrupt.
asciilifeform: yet folx keep showing up to work. ☟︎
asciilifeform: because per orlov 'collapse never happens for everyone, it only happens for a particular you, one at a time'
asciilifeform: existing gestapo aside, consider also future enemy. because even when the empires of today are forgotten, hogging sw spectrum will be a simple way to make new enemy.
asciilifeform: it's a limited resource and whatever crowned idiots sit on whatever thrones, will claim it
asciilifeform: incidentally the problem as originally stated, 'communicate across planet with a few watt, reliably, unjammably, and as close to undetectably as possible' was obsession of usg in 1940s-50s; and was declared 'solved enough' when satellite was built.
asciilifeform: asciilifeform's original q could be restated as 'how to achieve same thing as satellite, but without any'
apeloyee: an' they have 30000 SDRs to keep the siege? physical objects?
asciilifeform: it's what, 10bux.

asciilifeform: quite likely 1 on 3 sides, each a few km from house, suffices.
apeloyee: gotta exchange among them all traffic.

apeloyee: via a phat pipe.

asciilifeform: what happens is that 5-6 pensioners notice 'noise' and get in their trucks and df for usg for free, for a month, if it takes a month
apeloyee: hogging sw spectrum will be a simple way to make new enemy. << can reach a mutially beneficial agreement. the more transmitters, the more channel capacity, until the distortion is above noise.

apeloyee: df for usg for free << correlation attacks work but are neither easy nor cheap. if they only exchange 10% of the traffic, will take 10x as long to find you, unless they know the key
asciilifeform: was still speaking of the scenario with 1 station

asciilifeform: personally i'd be satisfied with a 'it costs all the king's horses and all the king's men' item.
apeloyee: yes, involves capturing and comparing traffic from multiple points, because each individual bit gives very little confidence
apeloyee: if you miss some time period, got to capture moar.
asciilifeform: could restate problem as 'maximize # of bits that can be sent before you gotta move'
apeloyee: transmit slowly enough. enemy's cost to proportional to time

asciilifeform: q is, wat do for people who dun have a pyongyang.
asciilifeform: e.g. ru horizon radar , eats what, half a MHz of sw, and betcha they have a massive garbage bin to put the complaints from 50 years into.
asciilifeform: orig thread is most properly concerning small radios, deep in enemy territory.
asciilifeform: the empires solved this with satellite.
asciilifeform: ( which will last maybe 40 min. when actual war, but nobody seems to give a shit. ) ☟︎

apeloyee: more: set up a site, bemoaning "radio intruders" on $band, stream from several nearby radios on it. the recipient can then improve SNR by subtracting whatever interference (from your POV), or estimate atmospheric conditions
apeloyee: re above, at least have a hidden relay in Flyshit Forest
apeloyee: better several
asciilifeform: with very very long mains cable, lol
apeloyee: if 1W is enough...
asciilifeform: 1w on empty band, with just-so sunspot cycle, etc. was on at least 1 occasion picked up across atlantic.
asciilifeform: this is separate item from 'can do on demand' tho.
apeloyee: see above re execrable efficiency of classic modes.
asciilifeform: year-round, day/night on crowded band prolly wants multi-kw.
asciilifeform: but yes.
asciilifeform: also must note that if the relay is controlled via radio, you've re-created orig problem in miniature.
apeloyee: if you needed 1W before, add a relay half-way, need 0.25W for you and relay nao. generally private relay should be a lot closer to sender. needless to say relay must re-modulate.
apeloyee: and preferably store-and-forward at opportune atmospheric conditions.
asciilifeform: sorta how i got to the positional modulator thing -- can you take advantage of the fact of having 2+ dispersed stations.
asciilifeform: for the tx process per se.
asciilifeform: as for atmospheric conditions, station has no way of knowing them ☟︎
asciilifeform: it can only send (or not), is all it can do
asciilifeform: ( the british-style 'can i hear bbc?' nonsense, i will dismiss out of hand, no externals plox )
apeloyee: can add a phase offset so that they are in-phase at receiver. N stations, more than N times SNR increase, but opens to attacks based on partial knowledge
apeloyee: no externals plox << opportunistic use is a thing
asciilifeform: it's a thing until it isn't
asciilifeform: otherwise i'd have started the thread with unsecured satellite relays ( which do currently exist )
asciilifeform: or, more elementarily, 'wardriving' ( 802.11 crypto was broken to death quite recently, note )
asciilifeform: but these rely on existing infrastructure, like flea relies on dog. asciilifeform's q was specifically re self-contained structure.
apeloyee: consider that the enemy will certainly take advantage of your willful ignorance of atmospheric conditions (as known from bbc,etc), as you will up the power
asciilifeform: just as he will take advantage of having airplane, and satellite, and armies, etc.
asciilifeform: q is what is the best that can be done with simply a radio.
asciilifeform: once hypothetical net has multiple stations on various continents, it will have its own idea of atmospheric conditions. but not before.
