mircea_popescu: factors that are very small are trivially a vulnerability, as the 17 example shows. what is "small enough" is somewhat of an open question, but 512 BITS does conceiovably qualify.
mircea_popescu: there's no argument that informations about range of factors CAN be used. the point is minorily that a) a range of 2045 bits is sufficient and majorily that b) should this range NOT be sufficient, the correct response is to extend IT, rather than to introduce key-substitute mechanisms in the actual encryption scheme.
mircea_popescu: ie, "you have the following information about any and all factors : they're 11 led, 1 terminated, 2045 true random bits. knock yourself out."
mircea_popescu: yes, in about 6% of cases the N will come out as 111..., in which case you know that both p and q are actually 1111 1111 led, ie you'll have 2 bits of each. and in 0.001% of cases N will led by FF and have the next bit set, so you'll know both p and q have the first octet set. if you have an extension attack allowing you to parlay 8 leading bits into the prime exposure, you can thereby crack rsa in 0.001% of cases.
mircea_popescu: as far as anyone knows, something closer to 450 bits is what's actually needed.
mircea_popescu: this whole thing aside, the only objection to http://btcbase.org/log/2017-11-16#1739433 ie, "produce sets of 2048 bits, check them for primality, if they're prime multiply them and if the product is a suitable N keep them else start over" was http://btcbase.org/log/2017-11-14#1737682☝︎☝︎

mircea_popescu: it may appear beneficial to instead produce larger sets, such as of 4096 bits. the UPPER BOUND of the gain from this process is known ; the lower bound of losses from it is not known, because yes if you allow 4096 bit p, q and test, an acceptable N can be composed of the product between 17 and 2^4092 - 177 or whatever it was.
mircea_popescu: so logically if indeed the larger upper bound was deemed useful we'd move the standard to 8192 bits N with 4096 bit p/q rather than do this.

diana_coman: PeterL, did you test your permutation step functions on that keccak implementation? when I feed rho a full-zero state it seems to end up with non-zero output
asciilifeform: diana_coman: interesting, and it still passed the test vectors despite this ??
diana_coman: asciilifeform, serpent passed the test vectors!!
diana_coman: NOT keccak; serpent
diana_coman: now torturing keccak and...
asciilifeform: aaaa
mircea_popescu: did it pass any others ?
diana_coman: mircea_popescu, well, he had those step functions private so initially inaccessible; so first I've tried a full test (i.e. input is this, do full keccak round, output should be this): it failed; so then I grunted through exposing the step functions at least at this stage and testing bit by bit;
mircea_popescu: and first one failed ?
diana_coman: rho step is second,what can I say; first one passed, yes (theta)
mircea_popescu: aha.
diana_coman: rho uses that Rotate_Left function which is imported from gnat; I'd rather not have it in a reference implementation tbh
diana_coman: I guess I'll test that one now...
asciilifeform: diana_coman: how do you propose to rotate without it ? as i see it, the language standard simply has a rotate-shaped hole in it
diana_coman: asciilifeform, I don't yet know the answer to that; I'm still eating Ada so I can't decide either way; still, I don't ...like it, that's all I said; perhaps there is no solution to it, perhaps there is one
asciilifeform: afaik there isn't a proper solution.
asciilifeform: it's a single fucking cpu instruction on ~all known cpu. and yet some wrecker saw it fit to exclude it from the language standard.
asciilifeform: exactly same nonsense as the carry flag thing
asciilifeform: motherfuckers, there is not a single comp made in 40 years that doesn't have a carry flag. WHY YOU HID IT
asciilifeform: it's infuriating
asciilifeform: gcc offers a built-in rotate 'illicitly', but not a portable access to carry flag. because ALSO run by wreckers.

asciilifeform: you likewise need exactly same voltage converter for pogo , and most other small devices.

mircea_popescu: if the convention can be "you'll need a serial capable machine", as it HAS to can be, then convention can also be "you'll need a cpu with ror/rol implemnented". whether it is decided to make it so has no bearing on whether it could be decided to make it so. that's a 1 : it could be.
mircea_popescu: and so back to the original, there can't "not be alternatives" to gnat. leaving aside the in principle argument, there's alternative by example : expose the cpu instruction and woe to anyone who won't/can't/doesn't.
mircea_popescu: and dang, why is this bch so totally taking over!
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: point is, that is no longer an ada proggy.
asciilifeform: you lose the guarantees.
mircea_popescu: well, the part that's ada is ada and the part that dun work or isn't wanted in ada... isn't ada.
mircea_popescu: just like irl.
mircea_popescu: gcc or w/e you use as a compiler,. for instance, also not an ada proggy. ada dun even try what lisp tried and failed to obtain, ie, a full universe.
asciilifeform: aaactually
mircea_popescu: yes yes
asciilifeform: gnat is an ada proggy.
mircea_popescu: (and provides its own inline asm too)
asciilifeform: but as we discussed in old thread, the single most serious problem of ada, is that it is quite difficult to implement an adatron. esp if you actually go for standard compliance.
asciilifeform: it isn't a straight imbecile mapping to the idjit cmachine cpu, as c is.
mircea_popescu: so then.
asciilifeform: standard compliance (we also had thread) is a massively underappreciated thing. it is why, e.g., diana_coman was able to take the serpent thing and build it, cleanly and without change, 20+yrs after its writing
asciilifeform: and why phf is able to execute 40 y.o. macsyma , ditto
mircea_popescu: history is traditionally anti-valuable to the plebs.
asciilifeform: ( and why my 1980s serial boxen still work, etc )
asciilifeform: nao this is troo

mircea_popescu: "Cloudflare Always Online allows you to read this idiotic banner on content which, unlike cloudflare, is actually valuable and no longer around."
asciilifeform: the wreckers DELIBERATELY, unabashedly wrecked bignum performance for all time on their idiot shitiron
asciilifeform: 'it ruins the pipeline'
asciilifeform: the sheer epic cixi...
mircea_popescu: i don't get it, what does carry flag ruin ?
asciilifeform: 'introduces linkage between pipeline stages'
mircea_popescu: what pipeline ? the cpu execution pipeline ?
asciilifeform: aha
mircea_popescu: ok this must be the dumbest thing i heard this week.
mircea_popescu: why specifically the carry flag as opposed to you know, any other flag ?
mircea_popescu: and for that matter any register ?
asciilifeform: it's got no flags iirc.
asciilifeform: the only way to detect overflow on risc-v is the algo i used in ffa.
asciilifeform: with the extra xor and sub etc.
mircea_popescu: "your mul was executed but we refuse to tell you what it came to because you might end up using that result somewhere" ?
asciilifeform: aaha.
asciilifeform: and, it gets 'better', risc-v is the Official(tm)(r) OpenSores cpu arch.
mircea_popescu: i thought risc had a buncha cond flags
asciilifeform: other riscs.
mircea_popescu: ah.
asciilifeform: but not the Troo RMS Linux Phoundation risc .
mircea_popescu: apparently there's a lot i don't understand.
mircea_popescu: such as... why ?
asciilifeform: why wreckers wreck ?
mircea_popescu: so there's no SWI in rms-risc ?
asciilifeform: interrupt ?
asciilifeform: it has interrupt, and jumps.
mircea_popescu: no moar BL NV/EQ either ?
asciilifeform: it's got jumps. but they blow the pipeline.
mircea_popescu: is this actually used for anything ?
asciilifeform: it is 'used' for 'being The Next Troo Libre RMStronic Cpu Arch'
asciilifeform: same as hurd is 'used' .
mircea_popescu: no but i mean concretely.
asciilifeform: moar concretely they go around propagandizing that if you build a fpga board you gotta use it, because 'mips is patented' ( in what country ? even in usa patent is 25y ) or 'risc-v is simplest' ( uh, nope ) and other idiocy.
asciilifeform: but nobody afaik sells a siliconized hard implementation of it. and i dun expect that anyone will. because wtf.
mircea_popescu: so conference fodder, a buncha slideshares. cool.
asciilifeform: they also managed to waste the time of compiler back-end people, linux kernel folx, etc. with it.
mircea_popescu: can we not talk about it anymore when discussing risc ? the concept isn't actually without merit, as such.
asciilifeform: so it's a first-class wrecking. sorta like what llvm used to be prior to apple crowning it. riscv is waiting for its apple.
asciilifeform: risc is a massively broad item
asciilifeform: i.e. 'reduced instruction set' comp
mircea_popescu: "this cisc thing is too complex,. make a simple one" "why, so there can within a decade 'exist' a thousand different simplicities ?"
asciilifeform: 'risc-v' is a well-crafted attempt to steal the name, much like gypsies tried to steal even the name of the country they lived in
mircea_popescu: ah, the whole "let's call gypsies romani now" thing ?
asciilifeform: aaha
mircea_popescu: some dudes organized a "congress" in 1971 in, of course, london.
mircea_popescu: (amusingly, no romanian gypsies participated)
mircea_popescu: they did lift a 1930s "gypsies of romania" congress flag tho.
mircea_popescu: anyway. lulzy outshot of this megalomaniacal protestant thing ("world council of churches").
asciilifeform: loldon, the go-to leprosorium for 'governments in exile' of all sorts, eh

mircea_popescu: asciilifeform so what do i get from divide by 0 ? rng ?
asciilifeform: 'undefined' i bet.
mircea_popescu: yes but experimentally.
asciilifeform not tried
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: https://archive.is/8mp39 << from horse's mouth
asciilifeform: '-1 was value seen in other simple implementations and drops out of simple hardware implementations.'
mircea_popescu: so they use the register as an error flagh
asciilifeform: that's not an error flag -- negative 1 is a legitimate result of dividing, e.g., 100 by -100
asciilifeform: to say 'error flag' is not in line with reality of the situation -- the only correct answer to div-by-0 is eggog. and eggog != 'returns a value just like actual non-by-0 division might'
mircea_popescu: what i mean is : the fact that div by 0 produces a non-uniform distribution of bits in the register suggests to me that it is NOT as flagless as it aims to pretend.
asciilifeform: it isn't distinguishable from a conceivable legit division.
mircea_popescu: gotta keep up to our representations, neh.
asciilifeform: fwiw i know why it's -1
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform i think i do too
asciilifeform: if you remove the div0 trap from ffa, you end up likewise with a reg full of 1s. it's what knuth division produces when given a 0 divisor.
mircea_popescu: ~not honestly trying to divide.
asciilifeform: well it 'tries' and tries...
mircea_popescu: ah, produces all-bits-set huh
asciilifeform: aha.

BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> im getting at least 4, so. proceed. << Ok, Math/Communication continues
gabriel_laddel: Speaking of which, am going to be performing self-amputation of right foot as it is in the way + I don't trust or want US doctors.
asciilifeform: ugh
gabriel_laddel: Anyone who gives me good resources (pubmed refs etc) can have the video whenever I get around to it
BingoBoingo: <mircea_popescu> ah sorry my bad, week/month nm << Number is strictly what the spot on the rack costs. Prototype "Basic Box" (AMD A8 5545 machine) should be arriving today for evaluation.
BingoBoingo: gabriel_laddel: What's going on with the foot?
BingoBoingo: Why not strap it into boot and let heal as it may
mircea_popescu: you can't do self-amputation.
gabriel_laddel: BingoBoingo right heel is totally shattered and collapsed into my upper foot.
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: iirc ( but for some reason can't find in log ) d00d fell off a roof
gabriel_laddel: mircea_popescu why not?
trinque: what the fuck.
mircea_popescu: the medieval standard is "saw the bone and sink the stump in hot oil". this works, but you'll pass out. has to be a third person.
mircea_popescu: moreover, the ~ only good thing to come out of the us is trauma medicine.
mircea_popescu: makes 0 sense to eschew THAT part of it
BingoBoingo: Also if amputaing taking off only the foot leaves small selection of expensive annoying prostheses. Knee offers more options
mircea_popescu: trinque tbh i was expecting self-hacking is in the pipeline since about a year ago.
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo well, half tibia. what knee.
trinque: some form of self-harm was never in question
mircea_popescu: anyway. stupid idea, try something else.

trinque goes to perform constructive self harm at the gym
gabriel_laddel: Fed me too much fluid prior to anaesthetic, which flooded lungs when knocked out. Ended up in ICU for 4 days.

gabriel_laddel: ben_vulpes I jumped from one roof to the other with electricity.
gabriel_laddel: ben_vulpes grabbed edge but couldn't pull myself up.
BingoBoingo: gabriel_laddel: You are going to get a lawyer. Your lawyer is going to probe the surgeon's colon with his suing member over that lung fluid thing. You will have money. Might as well rent some rackspace and grow your small business.
BingoBoingo: <gabriel_laddel> ben_vulpes grabbed edge but couldn't pull myself up. << Most other Americans can't do pull ups either.
ben_vulpes: that's a pretty novice anaesthesia mistake
gabriel_laddel: ben_vulpes Stanford hospital is a scary place. They lied to me MANY times about how many xrays I'd get, that they'd let me get copies...
BingoBoingo: Well, you get copies from copy office

ben_vulpes: i wonder if there's some "we're a learning hospital, might kill ya, gonna bill ya" going on
ben_vulpes: scuse me, "teaching hospital"
gabriel_laddel: ben_vulpes yep.

asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: iirc originally taken from colours of old usa electoral map
asciilifeform: here applies to the 'soft power' species of usgcrat ( in contrast with 'red' , 'weapons of mass destruction!' species )
asciilifeform: think 'tor', 'voice of america', 'internationalkomyooniti' people.
ben_vulpes: hm
ben_vulpes: is there some 'color revolution' subtext to it as well?
asciilifeform: folx in question are the orig authors of the concept, yes
asciilifeform: https://archive.is/FpOIq << in other 'red' lulz.
mircea_popescu: ben_vulpes there's this theory whereby usg oligarchy (ie, the pile of fundamentally corrupt underpinnings of the state, as all state ever is based on corruption nad naught else, which is why colonizers attempt to "root out corruption" in colonial posessions) is split into red section (raytheon and friends) and blue section (stanford and friends)

a111: Logged on 2017-11-16 13:15 mircea_popescu: im getting at least 4, so. proceed.
mircea_popescu: there's a great southpark episode explaining how this false dychotomy is intended to work in practice (i'm a bit couintry & im a bit rock and roll item)
mircea_popescu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8jvEJngh4M << item
ben_vulpes: neato BingoBoingo
mircea_popescu: i r get notice this exists in proper text format, so let's put it in teh archive then http://southpark.wikia.com/wiki/I%27m_a_Little_Bit_Country/Script
BingoBoingo: ben_vulpes: How many RU are you interested in?
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo learned teh hard sell at the school of hard knocks.
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: lol gotta get the rack full to make the math work
BingoBoingo: Also selling grass seed at the BingoBoingo store
BingoBoingo sells grass seed like so: Are you starting over or overseeding? How big of an area of your covering? These two products are the only things regionally appropriate here. You will buy X bags of A or Y bags of B. Which do you want?
mircea_popescu: does it work ?
BingoBoingo: Always.
BingoBoingo: Protests are met with explanations of their idea's inadequacies.
mircea_popescu: men and women equally well ?
BingoBoingo: Works smoothest with women under 40. Old women and old men protest most before surrendering.
mircea_popescu: the supply store, like a snowball!
BingoBoingo: Occasional fool goes for "Kentucky 31" tall fescue instead and wonders why their yard looks like a weedy lime green wheat field later
BingoBoingo: Weed control sales interactions are even more hard ball.
BingoBoingo: But smoother except for black men who have trouble understanding the mechanics of poisoning and aren't afraid to hide their ignorace through protest.

diana_coman: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-11-16#1739830 <- PeterL you are right in that problem with your rho was more subtle: it *should* set all lanes but it didn't because of how new coordinates were calculated; basically you lose old x in the process and end up calculating newY as 5*oldY instead of 2*oldX+3*oldY☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-11-16 19:18 PeterL: rho starts with setting Ar(0,0) to A(0,0), then loops over the rest of the Ar(0,1) to Ar(4,4) so the function does set all 25 lanes

asciilifeform: always ask 'what happens if the output and input are same memory'
asciilifeform: or, worse yet, overlap partially.
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Have datacenter, working on details that surround that
asciilifeform: !~later tell ben_vulpes https://github.com/threonorm/simulisp/blob/master/SCHEME-79/SCHEME-79%20Lisp%20on%20a%20chip.pdf << ( yes, pdf, it's an ancient scan, 1981 ) very spiffy review article by sussman re the famous scheme79 chip; also pertinent to anyone writing simple lisptrons of whatever kind
jhvh1: asciilifeform: The operation succeeded.

a111: Logged on 2017-11-14 20:45 phf: it's funny that 36xx series is basically an improved cadr. ivory on the other hand? literally scheme86: they poached both the main guy who worked on the cpu ~and the entire toolset~. ivory was still designed on CADR (rather than smbx), because that's where scheme team designed theirs
asciilifeform: BingoBoingo: neato
asciilifeform: for some reason asciilifeform immediately pictured BingoBoingo living inside a 42u cabinet, diogenes-style
BingoBoingo: asciilifeform: Well, after whatever hotel comes with flight may be living in hostel dorm for first few months.
BingoBoingo: Which will of course cost ~100-150 more than fiscal address will
PeterL: http://btcbase.org/log/2017-11-16#1739930 << damn, kindergarten level mistake there. I am used to thinking like in python you can do x,y = y, x+y or whatever☝︎
