mircea_popescu: asciilifeform you got a link to that hacking course thing that was crypto oriented ?
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: can remember more specific ?
mircea_popescu: i been looking for it magically can't find it. the one that had the rsa break in the last fascicle
artifexd: Book purchased.
asciilifeform: !s pollard rho
assbot: 1 results for 'pollard rho' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=pollard+rho
asciilifeform: damn, thought it might have been in that thread
mircea_popescu: nono it was a course, you were supposed to email your results
asciilifeform: hm
asciilifeform: i definitely remember that this existed.

assbot: Logged on 12-08-2014 15:50:28; artifexd: http://cryptopals.com/ <- some nice lessons teaching how crypto works, how to attack it, and how easy it is to screw it up
mircea_popescu: stupid fucking name. anyway, towards the end there's some good foundational stuff. perhaps not directly useful for the purpose at hand, but very good to get your head swiveled in the right position
mircea_popescu: re crypto vulnerability.
mircea_popescu: lol it was HIS link ?
mircea_popescu: ahjahaha
asciilifeform: bleichenbacher's oracle, in particular
artifexd: I will pause coding to read "Malicious Crypto" and finish the course. I'll report back when I'm done and made a decision re: golang's crypto libraries.

asciilifeform often wonders what happened to those people.
mircea_popescu: sounds like that much acid.
asciilifeform: evidently not too much acid, because - they ran.
mircea_popescu: ballmer's constant, but for acid.
asciilifeform: where are these kids now.
asciilifeform: can't all be dead.
mircea_popescu: sheeit!
kakobrekla: anyway, the wot has been forked into assbot and is running now
asciilifeform: kakobrekla: congrats !
mircea_popescu: yay
kakobrekla: that means we are no longer depended on gribble
kakobrekla: and some changes have been made.
asciilifeform: are these synchro-forks or fork-forks ?
kakobrekla: as ascii pointe out, session is bad so there is no more that.
kakobrekla: each auth worth command gets own otp
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the idea is to import gribble's wot but mark it as gribble's, and allow others to import assbot's wot.
kakobrekla: worthy*
mircea_popescu: i'll get on nano's case to see if he's willing to put it all into gribble.

kakobrekla: mircea_popescu what do you mean 'source' ?
kakobrekla: what is the value of source
PeterL: I did it!
kakobrekla: cool
kakobrekla: ah forgot to mention, otps can be executed out of order, but they are valid only for 15 min
kakobrekla: and you dont have to be on chan to use it.
kakobrekla: also if we downrate someone to l2=0 you should be able to !down immediately now, although i havent tested it.
mircea_popescu: kakobrekla as in, if the rating was given via here, or imported from gribble's db
kakobrekla: ah that
kakobrekla: i guess i can add tat.
kakobrekla: that
mircea_popescu: would be useful. then we have gribble-assbot talk to each other via diffs
mircea_popescu: and both can display both.
kakobrekla: ah and another detail, if you noticed there is no place to specify your 'wot' nick
kakobrekla: which means you irc nick is your wot nick

kakobrekla: you can request 10 commands, take them all at once to airgap
kakobrekla: do the jizlle and bring them back

kakobrekla: is it so hard to read off the link?
mircea_popescu: nop.

mircea_popescu: can't hurt. leave all these for a 2nd version down the road.
mircea_popescu: do as a batch

asciilifeform: the changekey thing leaves something to be desired.

artifexd: Snowden worked at the NSA until June 2013. GPG 1.4.13 was committed on 2012-12-20. GPG 1.4.14 was committed on 2013-07-25.d
artifexd: mircea_popescu: 1.4.13 is acceptable and 1.4.14 is not, correct?
kakobrekla: hows that ?

kakobrekla: snowden broke gpg somehow ?
artifexd: I believe the point is that Snowden didn't say gpg was compromised. However it could have been compromised since he left. Only mircea_popescu knows mircea_popescu's motivation for that spec though.
asciilifeform: there is always the option of actually studying the changelog.
asciilifeform: not a bad idea in any case

mircea_popescu: artifexd it's not a strict thing, more like a general consideration. i doubt they managed to react fast enough to do much to 4.14
mircea_popescu: anyway, the point is that gpg was widely used for the snowden leaks. this indicates that a major player trusted it, and was right in so doing ; and suggests a major target for that reason alone.
kakobrekla: meh snowden leaks could just as well be disinfo
mircea_popescu: i know for a fact the usg did not know what was in the leaks until their press agents told em
mircea_popescu: anything could be anything. but my arbitrary sez no.
kakobrekla does the sexygingers dance

asciilifeform: if that slide deck is genuine, i've a bridge to sell.
mircea_popescu: zrtp bs.
asciilifeform: incidentally, z is for zimmerman.
asciilifeform: who, by all indications, was swallowed some time ago.
mircea_popescu: myea
asciilifeform: in my diseased mind, the parsimonious hypothesis is that there is actually an nsa where that deck was genuinely crapped out by earnest monkeys who believe every word.
asciilifeform: (and that there is another one, where it wasn't. but i think we did this one before)
asciilifeform would like to see the -other- slide deck.
asciilifeform: or perhaps -those- folks don't go in for 'powerpoint.'
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: do you find it interesting that, despite the legend of snowden having used gpg, we have no signatures from him pertaining to any of the material ?
asciilifeform: he could easily, if he wished, demonstrate what the genuine material was, and what has been doctored or made up wholesale.
asciilifeform: this is assuming that we have a reasonably certain copy of his pubkey pre-dating the events. which, iirc, we do.
thestringpuller: decentralized bitbet?
thestringpuller: http://augur.link/augur.pdf
danielpbarron: such a thing is not possible; there needs to be an arbiter to decide if a bet has resolved yes or no
thestringpuller: but that's what oracles are for
asciilifeform: 'A key feature of Augur is tradeable Reputation. The total amount of Reputation is a fixed quantity, determined upon the launch of Augur. Holding Reputation entitles its owner to report on the outcomes of events, after the events occur. Reputation tokens are similar in other respects to Bitcoins: they are divisible to eight decimal places, they are accounted for by summing over unspent transaction outputs, and they can be sent
asciilifeform: between users.'

thestringpuller: danielpbarron is in party. regenerate 5 hp per turn. :D
thestringpuller: caise ypi

asciilifeform: !s sybil
assbot: 34 results for 'sybil' : http://s.b-a.link/?q=sybil
asciilifeform: there we go.
thestringpuller: how does that prevent democracy? (a sybil attack)?
asciilifeform: the basic idea is that meat puppets are not in any fundamental way different from other types of puppet.
asciilifeform: and must be dealt with through same mechanisms.
asciilifeform: the 'tradeable reputation' thing sounds disastrous.
asciilifeform: perhaps i'm just thick.
thestringpuller: ah. i understand your viewpoint tho.
thestringpuller: it all depends on volume of puppet imo.
thestringpuller: or maybe everyone is a puppet of some sort. that's a little beyond me tho
asciilifeform: in point of fact, even our system of reputation (wot) is theoretically 'tradeable', in that somebody could - in principle - sell his privkey to satan
danielpbarron: of course it's disastrous; it's like giving the -otc folk power based on their total rating score (which they build up through trivial deals)
asciilifeform: but baking tradeability in as a matter of course - is another thing
asciilifeform: lunacy, imho
thestringpuller: isn't this classic dilemma of selling soul for some benefit/value
thestringpuller: you only have one to trade.
asciilifeform: which they build up through trivial deals << aha. this is actually an age-old plague on 'ebay' and the like.
thestringpuller: tis also irreverisble in nature.
asciilifeform: sc4mz0r cultivates rating with 100,000 'a+++++ gr34t d34lz'

thestringpuller: Spend X money to build hoover dam and it explodes less than a year while runnign?
asciilifeform: seems clear that they'll pour the water on the other side.
asciilifeform: not on their own. (of the fork)
thestringpuller: But isn't this like someone trying to power a water wheel by simply running up stream with buckets of water they collect downstream?
asciilifeform: collected.
asciilifeform: or rather, robbed.
danielpbarron: there are plenty of people who are so focused on "mass adoption" as a priority that they will compromise any and all aspects of bitcoin to further that goal; what would get more mass adoption than endorsement from USG?
thestringpuller: It's still non-trivial effort tho, to run long term
thestringpuller: and wasteful. like fast explosion vs slow ember
thestringpuller: at least in my mind
asciilifeform: i'm not seeing any serious evidence of 'long-term' thinking on usg's part.
thestringpuller: i can only imagine poor peon running up stream trying to keep water wheel moving
asciilifeform: i can easily picture an 'atomic war' where every btc which usg has at some point begged, borrowed, stole, or can prevail upon a vassal to give up control of - will be placed on market in a 'last hurrah'
thestringpuller: danielpbarron: re: mass adoption << I always felt people wanted mass adoption so price raises.
thestringpuller: Which is perverted thinking at best.
thestringpuller: starving marvin in kenya buys a bitcoin with his 50000 kenyan shillings he saved up over the course of 5 years...
danielpbarron: i don't think they are so rational; i suspect it has more to do with "going viral" like a clever youtube video, and having been in on it before it was trendy
danielpbarron: although 2014 might have put an end to that
thestringpuller: i never understood when going viral became the equivalent of becoming valuable...
asciilifeform: from the standpoint of vermin - yes, valuable
asciilifeform: all vermin envy the virus.
thestringpuller: black plague for all?
thestringpuller: but in all srsns, i thought the "popularity contest" died out by the end of high school
thestringpuller: now it seems the popularity contest is "the thing"

mircea_popescu: danielpbarron: such a thing is not possible; there needs to be an arbiter to decide if a bet has resolved yes or no << easier to "invent" stuff than understand stuff. just like it's easier to write new code than understand coding.
mircea_popescu: "whenever misreporting an event is worth more to your stake than it costs to buy back the lost reputation, you misreport the event. decentralized selective scamming ftw!"
mircea_popescu: "others will not readily understand how our implementation of 3 card monte is an implementation of 3 card monte, giving us an exploitable knowledge asymmetry - which makes this exactly an altcoin, which is why it's sensible to pretend we're like bitcoin"

mircea_popescu: thestringpuller: this is how athero was able to launch ziggap << not a very good example. he had amassed trust over time, and likely at a higher cost than what he made out of it. the controlling factor there was "insane guy stopped taking his pills one day."

mircea_popescu: danielpbarron: there are plenty of people who are so focused on "mass adoption" as a priority that they will compromise any and all aspects of bitcoin to further that goal; what would get more mass adoption than endorsement from USG? << it could become a new brand of tide.
mircea_popescu: "bitcoin is now a detergent. finally a commodity !!!"
asciilifeform: they're trying to play it "anonymously". ie, not official << with pretense every bit as thin as with 'tor'.

assbot: Interview: Lennart Poettering | Linux Voice ... ( http://bit.ly/1CivD9e )
decimation: it's pretty obvious that the guy is a control freak who gets off on forcing his way
decimation: "So we started writing Systemd, and Red Hat didn’t like it at all. Red Hat management said: no, we’re going for Upstart, don’t work on that. So I said, OK, I’ll work on it in my free time. Eventually Red Hat realised that the problems we solved with Systemd were relevant, and were problems that needed to be solved, and that you couldn’t ignore them."
undata: decimation: I wasn't aware of that particular detail
undata: tragic; upstart is a much simpler alternative
decimation: "So anyway, long story short, we came to the conclusion that Upstart is conceptually wrong, and it moved at glacial speeds. It also had the problem that Canonical tried very hard to stay in control of it. They made sure, with copyright assignment, that they made it really hard to contribute, but that’s what Linux actually lives off. You get these drive-by patches, as I would call them, where people see that something is broken, or
decimation: something could be improved. They do a Git checkout, do one change, send you it and forget about it."
decimation: he tries to make a halfass technical argument against Upstart, and then whines that it's hard to make commits
decimation: later on he describes people who like systemd as "progressive" and those who reject it as 'conservative'
undata: well that lays bare the abstractions rolling around in that gourd, doesn't it
mircea_popescu: "Few pieces of software in history have been so fiercely debated as Systemd. "
mircea_popescu: really ? because why, because the author is 5 yo ?
mircea_popescu: how about you know, emacs wars ?

mircea_popescu: kinda why "adoption" is meaningless. i don't care for anyone to "adopt" anything i do. i might care if they change to fit to it. but otherwise, good fucking luck, there's no value in having a bunch of pacific islanders speak english as if it were the retarded language they spoke before.

mircea_popescu: but also why a certain attitude to ineptitude, from the "affirmative action", "wopmen in tech" "don't say nigger" all the way to stupidities like the equalitarism in freenode's policies is so very important. and why linus' "fuck you" is such a major thing.

mircea_popescu: honestly, i don't see it's a president's job, that.
mircea_popescu: and it's not how you ask the president that question, either.
decimation: well, certainly it ought to be something he answers in writing, in detail
decimation: the trouble is there's no method to compel an answer
mircea_popescu: this is roughly the equivalent of a company with 10k cab fleet having famously a weak alternator, and some reporter asking the CEO "what about the spinny trick ?"
mircea_popescu: that's not what you say. you say, "as you may be aware, because this so and so weakness in this part of the engine that does that and this, some drivers are so and so.". guy needs an intro.

mircea_popescu: currently it bleeds into teh bash. dun wanna put an "echo "/n"" in there .
decimation: well, there's an issue of policy here, which is "is a us person allowed to communicate in a manner outside the possibility of usg interception?"
mircea_popescu: right. that should be the question. like that.
decimation: because the implication of both cameron's and obama's answer is "no"
mircea_popescu: because that's why we go to school : so we can present our inquiries in such a way that OTHER PEOPLE can fucking grok wtf we want to know

undata: ben_vulpes: we have a buddy with an extensible IRC bot; how's that raw tx backport coming?
undata: er archaeology and re-implementation
undata: actually, it appears it would only have to be aware that a tx has occurred, not send any
ben_vulpes: undata: if you're interested in implementing, talk to MP for the spec
ben_vulpes: i don't really know how the transmission of btc is supposed to work for the thing
undata: it'd be neat if the thing paid its own bills out of its fees on some btc vps
ben_vulpes: probably want to decouple bot from funding actions
ben_vulpes: anyways
ben_vulpes: tx backport archaeology's an interesting thing
ben_vulpes: i'm starting to see some of the rationale behind the wallet paradigm - creating transactions for signing requires being able to retrieve arbitrary transactions from the blockchain
danielpbarron: i'd say TA is more like starcraft
ben_vulpes: far easier for the people working on it at the time to make some silly assumptions about what txns a user would want to sign, and then keep those txns on hand
ben_vulpes: creating a raw transaction requires having the previous transaction in hand in full at runtime, so as to extract the pubkey from the previous transaction
ben_vulpes: while this isn't *strictly* necessary, it's how things work now.
ben_vulpes: i don't know that a bitcoind would be able to verify a transaction without access to the full inputs
danielpbarron: i thought all you need to know is the tx id of the outputs you want to use, the private keys of the coresponding addresses, a destination, and an amount
ben_vulpes: to use the modern txn api, yeah
ben_vulpes: but!
ben_vulpes: to verify that you've created a valid transaction, you have to have the entirety of the previous output on hand to examine the public key
ben_vulpes: otherwise you just sign hash of txn, index in txn, and have no way to double check that you produced a valid signature corresponding to the pubkey to which those funds were transmitted originally.
ben_vulpes: danielpbarron: make sense?
ben_vulpes: (one can sign anything at any time - that's not the problem. the problems crop up in a) knowing the sigs are valid and b) the multi-input, multi-privkey transaction generation use-case: how am i to know which privkeys are to be used to sign which inputs, and furthermore [and somewhat recursively] how do i know those signatures to be valid?)
danielpbarron: what are you signing it with?
ben_vulpes: a user-supplied privkey.
danielpbarron: the one that goes with the pubkey of the output right/
ben_vulpes: sure
ben_vulpes: how do i get the pubkey for a given output?
ben_vulpes: say i have the transaction hash (aka txid) and output index - how do i get the pubkey those coins were sent to?
danielpbarron: this is for deedbot right? don't you already know what the last pubkey was?
ben_vulpes: no no no
ben_vulpes: raw transactions
ben_vulpes: *entirely* different project
danielpbarron: oh well yeah you need to know the whole blockchain to verify a tx in that case
danielpbarron: i tried to make a raw tx once, got rejected by my own node for having too small a fee
asciilifeform: sorta the point of having blockchain, no ?
ben_vulpes: "whole blockchain" << and more specifically, a trivial lookup of txids
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: iirc, i did mention 'can pull up arbitrary tx' as part of what a 'whole bitcoin node' has to do

kakobrekla: keyids are evil
davout: yea, i was reading gpg's rfc yesterday and found out that they aren't supposed to be relied upon for unicity
kakobrekla has nfi why nano keeps keyid field in his db
davout: thing is, i was also reading mp's deedbot spec, the part i was wondering about was the "extract keyid from signed message, and use it in w.b-a.link URL"
kakobrekla: replace keyid with fp ?
davout: kakobrekla: "nfi why nano keeps keyid field in his db" <<< if you keep the fingerprint you're automatically keeping the key id as far as i understand since the key id is simply the second half of the fpr
kakobrekla: last 16 chars iirc
kakobrekla: out of 40
davout: "replace keyid with fp ?" <<< sure, but how do i get the fpr from a signed message? gpg -v -v will just return the key id
kakobrekla: --fingerprint ?
davout: that would work when listing keys, i can't seem to get it work when piping a clearsigned msg to "gpg -v -v --fingerprint"

davout: if i don't have the key in my own keyring it doesn't seem possible to extract the fingerprint from a signed message
undata: however thouse german articles are going to do me in
kakobrekla: davout you can search keyserver perhps, but starting the search wherever with keyid instead of fp is not best idea
Apocalyptic: davout, yeah but anyway you would have the key in your keyring since you have to validate the sig
Apocalyptic: so this is a false problem
davout: it's always possible to query gribble to get the mapping, but that seems... suboptimal
punkman: davout, there is some combination of options that will do it for sure, you can look in python-gnupg
kakobrekla: the point is MAPPING is bad
undata: davout: you're not going to write it in ruby are you?
undata: pls no
davout: Apocalyptic: "you have to validate the sig" <<< no i don't think so
kakobrekla: doesnt matter WHERE you do it
undata: I've got a friend with a decent golang bot on github
kakobrekla: lol
Apocalyptic: davout, wait, so you're going to publish the deed without checking the signature is legit ?
davout: Apocalyptic: yeah, i think mp mentioned somewhere that verifying the sig is not necessary
Apocalyptic: oh ok
undata considers the silence an affirmative...
punkman: pretty sure it has to be verified
davout: kakobrekla: i agree, it's bad if you rely on keyids to actually identify the key, but if you output the actual full fingerprints in the returned json one can make an educated choice
davout: punkman: mebbe i'm wrong here, lemme try and find a reference

Apocalyptic: davout, so you're taking the deedbot project ?
undata: to summarize what's desired, the bot accepts signed documents from wot members in good standing only, publishes them by burning a small amount of btc and uploading to a site?

davout: undata: it doesn't burn the bitcoins
davout: other than that your understanding seems correct to me

undata: seems like the parties wishing to publish should provide coin to the deedbot operator
davout: not really sure why it has to be restricted to asseteers but w/e
undata: davout: the deeds are presumably for business arrangements
undata: the wot is an excellent tool for making good decisions about establishing those
davout: oh, and it's ppl who have L1/L2 trust from assbot, a subset from the wot members sez the spec

davout: undata: "the wot is an excellent tool for making good decisions about establishing those" <<< sure, but i'm not sure why the notarization *tool* would enforce that, i defo don't feel strongly enough about it to argue the point either way
undata: davout: not my rationale; speculating on what it might be
Apocalyptic: davout, re "looks like this can't be verified correctly without either relying on a keyid as an actual key unique identifier OR keeping a synchronized keyring and actually verifying the signature" I suspect there actually is, playing with the source atm
Apocalyptic: grep "get_short_fingerprint" in verify.c and see the related call get_fingerprint_hexstring() which supposedly could get the full fp
davout: Apocalyptic: looking at the rfc to see the clearsigned message structure
davout: Apocalyptic: RFC 5.2.2 sez a signature packet contains "Eight-octet Key ID of signer"
Apocalyptic: then it's settled I guess
kakobrekla: basically it says you are fucked
davout: o/
davout: pretty much
davout: so basically the options are
scoopbot: New post on Qntra.net by cazalla: http://qntra.net/2015/01/british-bankers-association-bitcoin-a-threat-to-sterling-may-aid-terrorists/
davout: - alter spec and add a gribble dependency
Apocalyptic: I wonder what the behaviour is if you have two pubkeys in your keyring with the same eight bytes key id and you're trying to verify a message
davout: - maintain a full asswot keyring on deedbot's server
davout: - not give a fuck about who signed a to-be-notarized blob
punkman: Apocalyptic: you can find keys with keyid collisions here https://github.com/coruus/cooperpair
assbot: coruus/cooperpair · GitHub ... ( http://bit.ly/1udc43q )
davout: - allow unsigned blobs to be notarized
Apocalyptic: the second seems like a reasonable choice
davout: - the last option is kakobrekla getting some moar work
Apocalyptic: punkman, thanks for the link, but I mean that there should be something in the clearsigned message structures that clearly identifies the key that produced it
punkman: I think there is, but not 100% sure
davout: well, apparently not
Apocalyptic: well according to what davout said there is just the 8 bytes
Apocalyptic: which is clearly not a canonical identification
Apocalyptic: I confess that surprises me, had imagined the full fp would be somewhere

assbot: dpaste: 3PDW8YM ... ( http://bit.ly/1uddP0x )
kakobrekla: daiily db dump?
davout: punkman: well, you're requesting a public key, so of course it works :-)
undata: the dump seems like the most straightforward thing to me
undata: signed by kakobrekla of course
davout: kakobrekla: if a 24h delay between asswot registration and ability to notarize is acceptable that would work
davout: it still boils down to a fpr <-> keyid mapping tho, not that this is evil _for this particular purpose_ but still
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 26850 @ 0.00049379 = 13.2583 BTC [+] {2}
kakobrekla: the problem with signing that dump is automation and keeping the key on boxen
davout: kakobrekla: tbh if verifying the signature on notarized data is not considered necessary i don't think it's a big issue if the dump is unsigned
punkman: davout: you are right, doesn't work with clearsigned message
undata: why is it not necessary to verify signatures before notarizing?
punkman: so I guess v4 sigs don't have fingerprints either
davout: but if you'd be ok with having some API call simply return the array of fingerprints in realtime, that'd be the easiest deedbot-wise :D
undata: davout: isn't the whole point of a notary verifying the identities of the parties involved then verifying that an agreement has taken place?
undata: or have I missed something
davout: undata: i didn't spec it, ask mp for the rationale -> http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=30-08-2014#815284 ☝︎

davout: undata: the notary doesn't enforce the agreement so why bother verifying the signature at all
undata: well he's saying ask gribble
undata: that makes sense
davout: for all i care the bot could hang out in -assets, and notarize whatever is asked from whoever has voice, sounds like the simplest straight-to-the-point approach to me
undata: I don't like it

undata: the fuck is the point of even having gpg involved then?
undata: and how does one move the process to another protocol later
undata: that's dumb

undata: surely one can do better than stamping any turd that comes along
undata: anyhow do it your way
undata: I'm hacking on it as well
davout: lol
davout: the thing is that, whatever turd comes along is necessarily given by someone who has voice in assets, so by very definition, not a turd
undata: davout: because no one ever once was opped in a chan that shouldn't have been

asciilifeform: davout: the version 4 signature subpacket spec << what do you want to know about it ?
asciilifeform: davout: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4880
assbot: RFC 4880 - OpenPGP Message Format ... ( http://bit.ly/1CAOiOa )
davout: asciilifeform: yeah, that's what i was reading, it mentions user ids in the subpackets spec, but i'm unsure whether that includes an actual key fingerprint, i tend to understand that it doesn't
davout: (pretty interesting read btw)
asciilifeform: davout: nope. key id.
kakobrekla: any good reason for this ?
asciilifeform: kakobrekla: none afaik. the standard simply sucks.
kakobrekla: i was afraid you gonna say that.
davout: lol
asciilifeform: 'it saves a few bytes' probably sounded like 'good reason' to the authors.
kakobrekla: nsa only has so much disk space.
asciilifeform: or, alternatively, like the choice of 'aes' over the stronger but 'slower' 'serpent' cipher, it was merely orders from lizardhitler.
davout: "Implementations SHOULD NOT assume that Key IDs are unique", so let's just include that in the signature packet. derp
asciilifeform: davout: a little subtler than that. the original assumption was that you would only ever verify sigs from folks you had a proper key party with
asciilifeform: and hence have a reasonably confident idea of genuine key for.
davout: which makes sense
asciilifeform: hence the 'key id' was meant as merely a soft handle to quickly pick out the right pubkey.
kakobrekla: fuckin key party and assumption of socialization
asciilifeform: rather than something to resist attack of any kind
asciilifeform: original pgp was not an apparatus for one-off deals with strangers, but something to use between friends, as i understand.
davout: and i guess even in the case of a keyid collision that has no impact on actual signature verification
asciilifeform: davout: correct
asciilifeform: davout: assuming it was an accidental collision, and that you have not entered a properly, maliciously crafted pubkey into your keychain that it -will- verify with
asciilifeform: if that makes sense
asciilifeform: the keychain thing nicely parallels ben_vulpes's discussion re: bitcoind wallets
asciilifeform: if it seems asinine, it is because it was designed for a certain pattern of use, which does not apply now.
davout: that doesn't make much sense to me, how would a maliciously crafted pubkey even verify the signature?
asciilifeform: davout: only if the signature was in fact made with evilkey
asciilifeform: davout: picture if you were trying to pass a document off as having been signed by X. you generate a key with the correct name, etc. and colliding keyid, then try to pass it off as the genuine article; then, when chumps swallow it, sign with it
asciilifeform: and naturally the sigs will verify
asciilifeform: this is considerably harder (in practice, likely impossible) with fp instead of id
asciilifeform: but rfc4880 does not specify that fp ought to be embedded in sigs.
asciilifeform: and so they weren't.
asciilifeform: hence this thread.
davout: the signature verification would in this case (assuming both keys are in the keyring) yield both a pass and a fail, right?
davout: ;;calc 2^64
gribble: Error: Something in there wasn't a valid number.
davout: ;;calc 2**64

Apocalyptic: just take the bitcoin network, it performs 2**64 hashes in 60 seconds at current hashrate if I'm not mistaken
davout: i see
Apocalyptic: and that's just for a preimage, if you want a collision the birthday paradox will tell you that you need much less than that
ben_vulpes: <kakobrekla> [] fuckin key party and assumption of socialization << another kakobrekla line worth reposting
davout: well, if you want to pull off an attack on someone you'll want to get a collision with a specific key id
punkman: davout, see cooper-pair link, has various PoCs

asciilifeform: Apocalyptic: 'key escrow' crapolade went out with the first clinton presidency, will probably return with the second.
asciilifeform: (third)
Apocalyptic: can't wait
davout: "sure you can escrow my key, wanna make sure it's mine? just check the keyid"
undata: asciilifeform: after the next attack they'll ram all kind of laws through around weakining crypto
undata: *ening
undata: because terrorists can't find an old copy of gpg?
asciilifeform: undata: at some point it will be forbidden in usa to sell or even own a computer which can meaningfully run classic gpg
asciilifeform: this is a considerably less-fantastic scenario than it would have appeared to be in the '90s, because of the 'nintendoization' of computing. gpg simply won't appear in the apple and microshit 'app stores' and thereby vanish
nanotube: kakobrekla: i have no idea why i keep keyid as a separate column in db either. probably something grandfathered in...
kakobrekla: :)
