mircea_popescu: meanwhile in other pantsuit lulz, the emerging convention is to call trump "drumpf". because, see, if someone does, then the repressed awkwardsuckers in the audience know it's SAFE!!!
asciilifeform: lol emerging, kako was doin' it in '16
mircea_popescu: in-group signalling, obviously someone not in-group would not say "drumpf" just like that. ☟︎
asciilifeform: ( for all i know, he devised it )
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform eh, for every eventual hot topic item there's 5k groups-of-friends who think they invented it.
asciilifeform: lolyes
asciilifeform: but funnily enuff that was the only place i ever saw it, prior to mircea_popescu's mention
mircea_popescu: i'm not saying the pantsuit's creative or anything. i'm just amused at how fucking awkward they can get, srsly, need special words for things that only other similar idiots would be using so as not to risk conversation with someone not similarly fucktarded ?
mircea_popescu: it's exactly like an imaginary situation where the math flunkies agree to call exponentiation "expies", strictly for the reason that this way, if anyone ever says "expies" they can SAFELY (!!!!! important point here !!!!) go into a "omfg how about those expies they're so incomprehensible!!!" routine.
BingoBoingo: Eh, the drumpf thing was a John Oliver cancer. The reason has been resurrected now is the NPC meme people are using it to mock the anti trumpers. It's all part of dismissing pantsuit complaints as "Orange Man Bad"
mircea_popescu: the "safety" being, of course, little expectation to run into a "wtf are you on about, you just multiply, what's to understand".
mircea_popescu: BingoBoingo right, which is the point : minority group is opressed and wanks accordingly.
BingoBoingo: Yup, cucked by their own old wank
mircea_popescu: "nobody understands us" and "our very existence is threatened, inasmuch as it entirely consists of... our inability to handle broad disinterest wrt our dysfunction".
mircea_popescu: i suppose the only moral being... "opressed groups are opressed for a fucking reason".

mod6: Ok, nevermind, they don't seem to be. But I just simply pressed the genesis and it barfed on a README file:
mod6: http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/z10un/?raw=true
mod6: Can anyone else confirm? Maybe I did something wrong or have the wrong file?
mod6: diana_coman's signature seems to match, as the genesis gets loaded into the flow just fine...
mod6: here's my sha512 of the eucrypt_genesis.vpatch: sha512sum patches/eucrypt_genesis.vpatch

mod6: no huge worries, was just getting prepped to start looking at keccak, and to see if there is a stand-alone binary for keccak
mircea_popescu: yes the current eucrypt tree uses keccak

asciilifeform: lessee if mircea_popescu or diana_coman beat me to the pill, i'ma not spoil the exact algo just yet.
phf: mod6: just fyi i was able to press eucrypt using v.pl by patching it to use vtools's `ksum' for hashing instead of sha512sum and `vpatch' for pressing instead of gnu. http://p.bvulpes.com/pastes/PZ4hX/?raw=true ☟︎
phf: the hash verification is not really necessary, since vpatch does it already, but above changes are drop in (could e.g. switch between vtools and legacy with a flag)

asciilifeform: ohai diana_coman

asciilifeform: diana_coman: serpent lulz make sense thus far ?
diana_coman: asciilifeform, I did not yet have the time to look at it in more detail, I just skimmed through the results
asciilifeform: you'll find that it's pretty simple, imho
mircea_popescu: aww poor alf!

The wrap logic is however flawed, so if a single word in the message is itself longer than 80 bytes the buffer arithmetic calculates the remainder wrong and will end up reading behind the end of the buffer' etc
asciilifeform: unrelatedly, had thought, in re 'candidates for asicization', http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-23#1865459 mechanism prolly oughta be on the list. ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2018-10-23 17:54 asciilifeform: the idea being, that nobody lacking a copy of the pad can cause you to wind yours forward.
asciilifeform: i.e., ic that when paired with another of its kind, and rng, saves internally the pad; but won't simply disgorge it unless in a synchronous link with the item it was synced with, as described in the algo.
asciilifeform: hypothetically, it'd be safe to transport, or even mail; it is impractical to capture,saw open,dump contents,bake a substitute with the copied pad,and deliver to unsuspecting counterparty, inside the space of day or two. esp. if you make the pad live in http://btcbase.org/log/2017-05-16#1656777 sram, rather than flash . ☝︎
a111: Logged on 2017-05-16 01:51 asciilifeform: if i were drawing up such a thing, i'd even have the sram work in such a way that 10 is a 1 on odd clock cycles, 0 on even
Mocky: wouldn't that require sync'd clock cycles?
asciilifeform: nope
asciilifeform: Mocky: if you're speaking of the 'remanence-free sram' -- think of it as a 1950s-style delay line store, with 1 (on-die) delay line per bit ( and not even necessarily, each can store multiple bits )
asciilifeform: thing is powered at all times, so it knows what the relation b/w the primary clock and the phases is.
asciilifeform: but you dun get the charge accumulation that makes for successful 'freeze with ln2 and read' .
asciilifeform: ( and no, you can't buy remanence-free sram, afaik, off-the-shelf, i devised it and it is published only in the l0gz.)
asciilifeform: i suspect it's the closest thing physically possible to saw-proof sram 'safe'.
asciilifeform: cutting into the ic package, probing, etc. will change the capacitance and throw the lines out of phase.
asciilifeform: ( for bonus, sync the units after you've already cast'em into bricks of lead )
asciilifeform: will look 'great' to xray, too.
asciilifeform: ( even answering the q of just where inside the brick the thing is, without heat stress or saw, will be painful )
asciilifeform: naturally this aint exactly commercially-hotstuff, it suffers from same problem as my other items, e.g. FG, namely that there's maybe 100 thinking people alive total, i.e. folx who could reliably distinguish the real thing from 9000x-cheaper imitation liquishit.
asciilifeform: so i have nfi how one'd make it a +ev biznis-proposition.
asciilifeform: it's a (gedanken-)-faberge.
asciilifeform: the problem faced by even fella with a first-class head, when buying 'crypto iron', is a 9000x hypertrophied instance of the http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-30#1867790 boojum -- to know what he's getting, he is stuck with much ~harder~ problem than even original maker had in making the artifact to begin with ! ☝︎☟︎
a111: Logged on 2018-10-30 19:59 mircea_popescu: though it seems on some level this is a religious behaviour, "very easy to come up with ideas very hard to evaluate them". well... something's defo broken then!
asciilifeform: wot/chain-of-custody is the only known pill, and it still comes pretty shaky guarantees.
asciilifeform: for instance, i have here 2 FG units i flew ~back~ from pizarro, they had been pawed by randos when ben_vulpes had his customs debacle. in so far as i can tell , they have orig firmware still, and by erry possible test they are virginal, but even i cannot say whether they're 'still FG' or not !
asciilifeform: some variant of the 'nail polish' trick, would help, but not cure, this headache.
asciilifeform: it's an open problem, and will prolly forever remain, in some sense, open; but afaik the gold standard is still a powered, disturbance-sensitive storage on-die.
asciilifeform: currently i'm not even certain that makes sense to ~sell~ a crypto iron; possibly a truly-serious user ~must~ make 'his own' , out of standardized, exhaustively-testable, and -- most importantly -- mix&match-able, components, from a design he has read & understood.
asciilifeform: wot + hand-delivery cuts, in a way, this knot. but not practical for konsoomer/heathen iron, sadly.
asciilifeform: *that it makes sense
asciilifeform: if somehow FG were to catch on with the http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-26#1866428 crowd, the situation will not differ so much from the current : coupla 100 people will have the genuine article, and 9,999,999 sad folx will have physically-similar item made in hong kong to washington's specs. and i couldn't do a thing about it. ☝︎

diana_coman: asciilifeform, yes, you win!
diana_coman: "Over the next few days I started to meet people and collect the items I’d need to survive. " - ahahaha, that guide to Doha-zone was nice to read; how's that quest going?
diana_coman: Mocky, ^
asciilifeform: diana_coman: the caveat re my method, is that i do not presently know how to ~portably~ 'lock' the thing ( so >1 process dun eat from it )
Mocky: I have more blog posts churning thru the pipeline atm, mostly written for some days now. photo handling jammed up my process ☟︎
asciilifeform: ( it goes straight to the /tmp files horrors )
asciilifeform: the q, i mean.
diana_coman: asciilifeform, myeah; part of the reason why I did not just nuke the C thing but rather kept them both in there at least for now
asciilifeform: 'The "No Implicit Conditionals" restriction for the whole smg comms had to be discarded because of the Keccak...' << this is odd; is there an array concatenation in keccak ?
asciilifeform: cuz that's typically why
diana_coman: lemme find the line, 1 sec
asciilifeform: ( using the ada ampersand notation )
diana_coman: asciilifeform, this line: http://www.dianacoman.com/2018/01/18/eucrypt-chapter-6-keccak-transformations/#selection-159.735-159.812
asciilifeform: ahahaha it's the implicit div0 check
asciilifeform: can Z_Length be 0 ever, legitimately ?
asciilifeform: if it can't, you can narrow the type and be rid of the implicit 'is-div0?' check ☟︎
asciilifeform: (at least on my old gnat, this worked reliably)
asciilifeform: loox like it's a naked modular type right nao
asciilifeform: Keccak_L: constant := 6; Z_Length: constant := 2**Keccak_L; << so it's 64
diana_coman: myeah, type is modular; z_length is a constant though and ugh, not 0 because then you have no state to talk of
diana_coman: it's literally the depth of the "cube" that is the state of bits for keccak
asciilifeform: diana_coman: so you aint gotta mod; an integer mod 64 is simply same as & 63 .
asciilifeform: bang, nomoar div0 check.
diana_coman: myeah, but not as clear wtf goes on in there
asciilifeform: and you dun have to hardcoad it; simply replace Output(X, Y) := Rotate_Left(Input(X,Y), ( (T+1)*(T+2)/2) mod Z_Length); with Output(X, Y) := Rotate_Left(Input(X,Y), ( (T+1)*(T+2)/2) and (2**Keccak_L - 1));
asciilifeform: arithmetically same, and nomoar div.
asciilifeform: can define as an inlined op, for clarity, also.
asciilifeform: ada treats any statement that divides by anything other than an immediate constant ( incl. / or mod by a named constant ) as potentially div0-barfing
asciilifeform: and inserts the check
asciilifeform: 'No Implicit Conditionals' bans this, with the result of banning such forms
diana_coman: makes sense; I'm adding the note there and the ref for now
asciilifeform: ( the only other operation i know to do this, is array concatenation ; hence my earlier suspicion )
diana_coman: I don't have any array concatenation, no
asciilifeform: implicit conditionals aint evil per se , tho ; i banned them in ffa specifically as they get in the way of constanttimeism, is all ☟︎
asciilifeform: there is no particular reason why ~erry~ proggy has to have the same pragma fascism as ffa ( and in fact i've written several that cannot function under that set of constraints, e.g. the mmap thing requires System.Address )
asciilifeform: it is one of the reasons why i section my routines into staticlinkable libs , rather than 'take this and cut&paste'
diana_coman: asciilifeform, certainly; my approach so far though was simply "start with the fascist restrictions since they are available and then - if and when needed, explicitly relax them"
asciilifeform: that way it is possible to write a piece under 1 set of constraints, and then permit it to run in a larger proggy with looser ones
asciilifeform: diana_coman: aha, i use same method
diana_coman: there is some benefit to even knowing what you need to relax and why
asciilifeform: diana_coman: there's a gnat flag that actually gives you all permissible constraints, whether you knew about them or not, that can be then thrown straight into restrict.adc
asciilifeform: but i dun recall from my head; it is in the logs somewhere
diana_coman: I missed that somehow; I'll dig it up
asciilifeform: ( keep in mind that it will give you all the ones that your ~particular~ gnat supports; but nao that we have the makings of a cemented gnat, this is less of a concern )

asciilifeform: diana_coman: re: ToOctets / ToBitstream / etc -- do you know that ada has 'variant records' (similar to ye olde C 'unions' , but with typechecking ) , you could in principle use'em and avoid the conversions, for slightly cleaner proggy
asciilifeform: ( not necessarily worth sweating over given as you already wrote it , but for next time )
diana_coman: I know of variant records but I did not think of them for the conversion really
asciilifeform: not critical imho
asciilifeform: but pointing out for the l0gz, that there's a 'ecologically clean' variant for those.
asciilifeform: ( c 'unions' are sad cuz c dun give you any portable knob for cementing where the bits actually go; ada's records are sane, you can specify the exact location of erry element, paddings, endianisms, bit orders )
asciilifeform: anyway -- minor nitpick.
diana_coman: I think I do suffer from a bit of C-induced anti-unions bias
asciilifeform: diana_coman: rng.adb / Get_Octets -- you'll prolly want a timeout there
asciilifeform: otherwise the result of a dead/unplugged FG is simply halted box
diana_coman: asciilifeform, so far I'd rather have halted box than continuing
asciilifeform: diana_coman: metoo, i had to breathe ada for yrs before working all the c sad out of my follicles
asciilifeform: diana_coman: ideally you want to at least know why halted.
asciilifeform: ( and if because fg -- which? fg )
diana_coman: true; this will have to be addressed at some point with some sane way of handling, yes

asciilifeform: last col. is the constant term of the row.

asciilifeform: diana_coman: loox pretty grim, imho

asciilifeform: but simply from the pic you can already see, with naked eye , 'floor tiles'
diana_coman: myeah, I was just admiring them
asciilifeform: these , in a hash output, is.. i lack the words

diana_coman: well, we'll have at least serpent-tiles for interior design
asciilifeform: lol
diana_coman: it could be an euloran item, what!
diana_coman: lol
asciilifeform: i'm reminded of the chessboards they used to print in sov newspapers. after a good rain.
asciilifeform: it's funny, if only to me -- if author wanted to make the keyspace == 2**256, all he would have had to do is to drop a copy of the 256bit key into the expansion. but i can already picture the fatlogic, 'oh noez, that wouldn't do, will leak key via plaintext cuz not whitened'
asciilifeform: btw if it aint obvious -- the denser the horiz. path across the pic, the ~easier~ it is to find alt-solutions to that line of the expansion (i.e. rearrangements of the input key that yield the same mod-2 summation when multiplied with that row of the matrix )
asciilifeform: so for bit 0 of w, h21 ^ f21 ^ d21 ^ a21 ^ 1 == w0, and if you want that w0 they gotta sum to same thing mod-2 , no matter what. but for the ~last~ bit of W, you have 79 whole slots ! that still only gotta add up to same thing mod-2 ! many more variants .

mircea_popescu: speaking of mocky, 11-19-20-?
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform pretty sad item.
asciilifeform: noshit
asciilifeform: sad, but better to learn this nao than after gluing it in eulora, or baking asics, etc
mircea_popescu: http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-31#1867924 << ikr, multi-upload has been on the wishlist for mp-wp ever since... hey hanbot how long's it been now ? ☝︎☟︎☟︎
a111: Logged on 2018-10-31 17:41 Mocky: I have more blog posts churning thru the pipeline atm, mostly written for some days now. photo handling jammed up my process
mircea_popescu: certainly before baking anything.
mircea_popescu: diana_coman http://btcbase.org/log/2018-10-31#1867935 << he;'s got a solid point there. ☝︎☟︎
a111: Logged on 2018-10-31 17:46 asciilifeform: if it can't, you can narrow the type and be rid of the implicit 'is-div0?' check
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: the bigger saddity, is that i dun have anything to offer to plug-in replace 'serpent', nao just as in '16 when mircea_popescu was offering prizes
asciilifeform: ( the prng stuff is even easier to demolish, imho it's not worth anyffing )
mircea_popescu: this is pretty fucking sad.
asciilifeform: i had an automata thing, but found that i could not in good conscience play it for the prize, i never found any approach to a proof that it dun have ( as mircea_popescu called ) 'kek state'
asciilifeform: ( in general asciilifeform eschews wasting folx's time with questionable algos for which there is no approach to fix )
asciilifeform: the fundamental problem with 'i'ma use turing-complete automaton as hash!' is that ~specifically~ the aspect that makes it seem appealing to begin with, is the very same thing that kills you, it is impossible to prove non-cyclicity
asciilifeform: ( reduces to halting problem )
asciilifeform: there's a quite tall pile of pointlessly murdered trees behind ' asciilifeform never brought us a nice symm cipher ! '
mircea_popescu: in other news, this rapidly deteriorating day (it fucking rained on me at the beach, on TOP of serpent being as tight as hilary's ass) was saved by my ... 404 mn ecu pop in Eulora. very high % valuyable shit, too!
asciilifeform: hey, it remains theoretically possible that asciilifeform somehow is mistaken and the gauss-reduced matrix has unique solution...
asciilifeform: at least until i actually do it and it spews forth the pill eqn.
asciilifeform: ( i.e. transformator for 256b K that produces K1,...Kn that go to equiv. end states )
asciilifeform: only then, imho, can properly pour cement, put the cross on the tomb.
mod6: Lords and Ladies of The Most Serene Republic, The Bitcoin Foundation's STATE OF BITCOIN ADDRESS: http://therealbitcoin.org/ml/btc-dev/2018-October/000317.html
asciilifeform: ohai mod6
mod6: I should have waited 4 more minutes to send -- no big deal, but the statement ended up in the October bin, instead of November.
mod6: hai asciilifeform
asciilifeform: '0x012: pete_dushenski's [R.07] nodes were found to be dead, and thus removed from the list of Advertised Republican Nodes' << ha
asciilifeform: seems like there's a roughly 6 mo. lifetime for folx who fall into 'man alone', sorta how there is 6 mo. ramp-up for n00bz
asciilifeform: iirc shinohai also started prb approx 6mo after his 'what am i doing here' monologue
