asciilifeform: decimation: that dongle is just the thing for, e.g., pogo - but the rng is not a rs232 device...
asciilifeform: it doesn't spit out start or stop bits

asciilifeform: http://www.best-microcontroller-projects.com/image-files/how-rs232-works-tx-logic-rs232-diag.png << example
asciilifeform: (if it did, it would be perfectly usable as rs232)

decimation: did you intend to use an spi device
asciilifeform: nope
asciilifeform: it's raw rng
decimation: ah I see
asciilifeform: i.e. a pin that changes level when it wants.
decimation: so really you need a '1-bit adc'
asciilifeform: now, if you have a -very- well-behaved os, you could sample it as rs232 anyway. but then you discover (see old mircea_popescu article where we stepped on this caltrop!) that you end up losing bytes that match 'control' section of ascii table
decimation: asciilifeform: or you could use a parallel port, if your computer has one
asciilifeform: decimation: this was what i told ben_vulpes at c3
asciilifeform: to use parallel port

decimation: I would worry about potential noise in the sound card
indiancandy1: wat r y talkin bout

williamdunne: Hmm you're right, none of these examples are all that great
mircea_popescu: to bring the point home : you can only be NOT cis. because the people who use the term aren't, and to the entire would outside of that small, retarded minority the term is meaningless.

decimation: "Getting ?rocked,? as locomotive engineers call it, is so common on the Northeast Corridor that trains long had metal grills over their windshields to act as armor. These days, thick glass is specifically designed to withstand the impact of a cinder block. Amtrak officials say trains are pelted in the neighborhoods around the crash site monthly."

cazalla: BingoBoingo, figured you more for baseball anyway, then you could get juiced up on HGH
cazalla: hispanics getting homeruns
mircea_popescu: gabriel_laddel I like walking and that is about it as far as exercise goes. << im pretty much the same.
BingoBoingo: cazalla: The time it takes to learn to throw anything left handed... versus the exosud of young potential prize fighters for MMA and the NFL... I leik my odds
mircea_popescu: " You've made it to #b-a, which unlike any community I've ever encountered provides a foundation for building a sane civilization and you want to... become a boxer?

cazalla: still don't get the 11 years of training
mircea_popescu: gabriel_laddel i think that's how half the chan people are too. that's why it's such a trap for them
BingoBoingo: mircea_popescu: Honestly having been roundly rejected by the fiat economy anything I approach is as a hobby, except for the qntra. The Qntra is deadly serious.

BingoBoingo: Nah that's a tie for beating rhonda quotes
mircea_popescu: cazalla oh that's a point huh.
cazalla: it's a great story though, not the first trilema article i read but the first that stuck in my mind
cazalla: BingoBoingo, anyway we should both train and then we can put on some exhibition fights in BA in a year or 2, find some local picaninnies to go up against

BingoBoingo: If anyone didn't guess already the Qntra Bird Flu article came out of buying 2 dozen eggs and the next week buying the same two dozen eggs for a budget busting (who plans for 67% markups) price.
cazalla: BingoBoingo, buying em? what's the matter with you, can't catch a chicken?
cazalla: chicken chasing is how we use to train in the old days btw
BingoBoingo: cazalla: Turkeys here you can catch wild. Fuck, drove past a roadkill armadillo today which should only happen on the other side of the mississippi river. Chickens though... It takes three eggs to make a decent omlette. Even if you are getting an egg from each hen per day that's still a lot of birdshit.
cazalla: armadillo edible?
BingoBoingo: cazalla: Carries Leprosy
BingoBoingo: So, maybe? I'm not that brave.
cazalla: i thought road kill was like american pie
BingoBoingo: cazalla: You still got to be picky. People fight over rights to bumper deer. Less so for plague carriers like armadillo.
BingoBoingo: http://philippinefailblog.com/what-a-filipino-resume-might-look-like/
BingoBoingo would rather punch one of the local coyotes into dinner than try making an armadillo edible

BingoBoingo: Because few of them could get under heavy weight.

gabriel_laddel sputters, cannot compute
cazalla buys BingoBoingo a tapout shirt for xmas
BingoBoingo: Some things don't
BingoBoingo still works on getting reasonably fit though
BingoBoingo though doing an honest assessment finds a person who can reasonably keep up in a lot of #b-a convos but who can't program for shit. And honestly... training to trade punches seems much easier than learning to program on any level approaching asciilifeform, ben_vulpes, and mod6.

asciilifeform: (for anyone perplexed - we promised not to announce dud keys publicly, at least not if key's owner answers the warning - see http://nosuchlabs.com/theory )
kakobrekla doesn't resolve bets, but mods that do read bb comments so is fine.
asciilifeform: kakobrekla: i woke you up because the info necessary to resolve this bet is not public (as of yet.) hence tricky.
asciilifeform: in fact, i'm rather unclear on what will happen if key's owner wakes up and asks 'pretty please don't rape me on camera'
davout: RAEP RAEP RAEP
asciilifeform: (he isn't anyone we know. but we did promise to spare)
mats: i loled. 1.08btc on 0.02btc
asciilifeform: somebody's gonna chortle on cock
mats: too bad its the house
davout: lol
asciilifeform recused himself from the bet
kakobrekla: well, lets see what the wot is worth.
kakobrekla: anyway, the affected parties are basically (listed by alphabetical order): mp
asciilifeform: phun phuct: i never actually tested the code which displays phuctored moduli. (couldn't be bothered to craft a dud key, it's a pain) - but it worked. because was written correctly. perhaps a novel concept to some folks
kakobrekla never heard of that
asciilifeform: and the poor bugger appears to be in the strong set, no less.
davout: asciilifeform: aren't there, by definition, at least two 'buggers'?
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 38700 @ 0.00028269 = 10.9401 BTC [+] {2}
adlai: iiuc, finding the second bugger would require bruteforce checks against all the keys contributing to the modulus that phucked the first bugger
adlai: (not that much work, definitely less than the work which has already been done to find the first one)
assbot: [MPEX] [S.MPOE] 65450 @ 0.00028294 = 18.5184 BTC [+]
adlai: (phuctor now knows the factorization of a single key, and it knows which of the two prime factors is shared with the second bugger)
davout: if you know that there's another broken one in the set, might as well re-check the set to find it
asciilifeform: davout: there sure are
asciilifeform: davout: in not too long, i will learn who the 2nd one is.
asciilifeform: so here's my other observation:
asciilifeform: we haven't really discussed it, but there are interesting implications in breaking a fella's pgp key.
asciilifeform: mircea_popescu likes to speak of having 'killed' that greek derp, but in a very real sense the schmuck whose key we just broke, is dead
asciilifeform: which is to say, i could sign, with his key, 'please rape me in public with a donkey' and it will be as legit as anything he will ever say himself
asciilifeform: in the eyes of the gods
asciilifeform: to rephrase, he no longer (if ever did) have sole control of his private key
asciilifeform: and we must not neglect the third party - the fine folks who boobytrapped mr schmuck's copy of pgp.
asciilifeform: if keys are identities are people - which, for purposes of wot and dealings among folks who will never meet in the flesh, they most certainly are - that one: has died.
asciilifeform: phuctor does not send automatic emails. to anyone. so, let's see what happens when mircea_popescu writes to mr schmuck
asciilifeform: but my point above was, what are we to do with the answer? it could be coming from just about anyone!

asciilifeform: jurov: there is a second, but it will take a while to unearth it.

mircea_popescu: anyway, i do encourage everyone to try this themselves.
mxtm: now what do we do with our GPG keys and GPG in general :(
Apocalyptic: asciilifeform, isn't Π(∀n) the product of all the modulus treated by phuctor ? how do you get $schmuck-Q * $otherschmuck-Q by dividing it by (schmuck-P ^ 2) ?
mircea_popescu: mxtm we check implementations to make sure they're conformant to spec.
mircea_popescu: the spec is in no way broken by this.
mircea_popescu: oh also - if anyone has a hacker news account or w/e - put it in.
asciilifeform: Apocalyptic: you are correct, the formula is missing a step. but i will leave it as exercise.
Apocalyptic: asciilifeform, that calculation makes sense if Π(∀n) is in fact the product of only the two modulus we're interested in

davout: hory shet
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform is this 500 line py script published anywhere ?
asciilifeform: which
asciilifeform: the ugly www frontend ?
asciilifeform: or werker
Apocalyptic: wait, the worker is a python script ?
asciilifeform: i don't recall if i posted it anywhere.
asciilifeform: Apocalyptic: v1 was. but not this one
asciilifeform: the thing that does the gruntwork is in c, uses gmp (as gpg uses)
Apocalyptic: sound choice
asciilifeform: the www front end is an ugly python hack
mircea_popescu: werker
mircea_popescu: ah ok
asciilifeform: i posted werker in #b-a a few days after phuctor went public
asciilifeform: no one commented
asciilifeform: feel free to post somewhere
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform plox put it as post on loper-os

davout: so 2 identified keys have been factored and 2 others have been factored, but not identified yet, right?
asciilifeform: aha
Apocalyptic: mircea_popescu, asciilifeform, will the second colliding prime be published ?
davout: just publish them in chan, as they come, more log readership
davout: :D
mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic nah.
mircea_popescu: just owner(s) announced.
mircea_popescu: davout two pairs of gpg keys are known, in the sense that their pubkey modulus has been factored.
kakobrekla: same p on second one?
mircea_popescu: nope. 21 this time. why bother with a full length 77 when one could just use 7.
mircea_popescu: faster.
Apocalyptic: <mircea_popescu> just owner(s) announced. // once you have the owners name you can get their keys, and at that point it's trivial to compute the common prime factor
mircea_popescu: (generally - since the gcd finally contains 3, it will be a massacre now for all the shitty keys)
mod6: 21?!
mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic announced PRIVATELY. of course.
mircea_popescu: im not tellin' you.
Apocalyptic: oh ok
davout: mod6: digits?
mircea_popescu: Apocalyptic from what i hear alf's contemplating sending them certs signed by their own key.
mircea_popescu: he has a sense of humour like that.
Apocalyptic: heh
mod6: proof in the pudding :]
davout: mircea_popescu: best proof possible

asciilifeform: ben_vulpes ^^^^
ben_vulpes reads...again
decimation: asciilifeform: so did the sks server at one point accept anvin's key and then later bitrotted it?
decimation: cause I thought there was a checksum
mircea_popescu: this seems the most ... "nothing happened, go back to sleep"-benign theory.
mircea_popescu: it seems tempting, tho there are sticking points. but in any case, as phuctor progresses we'll get a better idea.
mircea_popescu: now that it has 3, 7, 11 etc in the P it will find all these.
decimation: doesn't the sks server check before shitting public key?
decimation: 'oh I got a bad key'
mircea_popescu: more on point, would you expect they STORE bad keys ?
trinque: incidentally dieharder has been busted in gentoo for at least two months
mircea_popescu: why ? space is an issue, right ?
mircea_popescu: trinque how ?
trinque: I'm trying to figure out why it wont build
mircea_popescu: heh.
decimation: apparently because of their political stance (all gpg keys must be public and stored for all time)
ben_vulpes: trinque: so it's not me!
asciilifeform: they store them, easily enough, by never checking
mircea_popescu: !up referredbylopero
asciilifeform: l0l it cuts the nicks
mircea_popescu: decimation doesn't that stance open them to incredible ddos ?
decimation: heh yeah sure does
mircea_popescu: i mean, if the claims is accurate, what's to keep me from making anyone's sks profile 1 gb long ?
decimation: I don't think anything
mircea_popescu: full of 1mn such pubkeys ?
ben_vulpes: trinque: how does one go about walking the history of portage?
trinque: ben_vulpes: you can always build a specific version provided the ebuild is still available in portage by emerge =category-name/thing-0.1.2
trinque: this underscores the need to archive /usr/portage/distfiles
decimation: well, I guess if you want your 'roster of people' to be a combination of legal record and bathroom graffiti, they got you covered
asciilifeform: ^
trinque: and probably the portage tree itself
mircea_popescu: decimation anyway, we'll know more / anything of actual substance once the guy himself answers.
asciilifeform: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=9561305
mircea_popescu: and we'll have a pretty decent picture once phuctor's done walking the set, which looks like a coupla months
decimation: indeed. I'm off on a home improvement project, good luck with the ramblig mob that's gonna come by
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform the man has a good point.
asciilifeform: very much
asciilifeform: why not one of the guests is speaking, l0l

asciilifeform: because the 'hand of smiting' was visible
trinque: tendrils everywhere
mircea_popescu: oh right right
asciilifeform: iirc there's a full copy of it on mircea_popescu's www
mircea_popescu: was like "we have consensus and therefore will delete your reddit thread proving the contrary. because this will totally work, you being some derps who depend on the graham lulzatron"
mircea_popescu: then it... didn't work.
mircea_popescu: whether that proves the contrary, or for that matter whether the contrary needs any proof... exercise for reader.

mircea_popescu: mopre like a training exercise for younguns looking to get shellshocked by "free software"
asciilifeform: iirc no extant pgptron includes this functionality
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform tbh i find the "broken in transit" explanation offered by the back to sleep camp particularly ridiculous.
mircea_popescu: seriously, some bits got changed ? and what archive still extracted , no problem ?
mircea_popescu: no checksums even, no crypto, nothing at all ?
mircea_popescu: who is this supposed to persuade, exactly ?
davout: the real thing here would be to actually find a GPG implementation that does not run the check that leads normal ones to simply discard this key
delan: something fishy going on — http://puu.sh/hQVmI/b85c9c57d0.png
delan: probably getting nuked
mircea_popescu: davout how would you know it is even publicly accessible ?
mircea_popescu: maybe this is paort of a tandem with specific userland diddling.
mircea_popescu: which would neatly explain why it HAS TO stay on sks servers.
mircea_popescu: victim gets nsa-something or the other, gets the "key", etc.
asciilifeform: aha.
asciilifeform: the choice of victim is very telling
mircea_popescu: i meant the REAL victim.
asciilifeform: i should like to get a list of -everything- he 1) signed 2) public is running
mircea_popescu: some guy trying to do something or the other with softwasre.
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform debian.
asciilifeform: then we have our corpse.
ben_vulpes: conspiraci!
mircea_popescu: i am definitely suspicious of this entire tower of mirrors made of shit.
mircea_popescu: "oh, it's not really what it seems, fart fart"
asciilifeform: the buggers' only defence
asciilifeform: is the fart cloud.
asciilifeform: expect it to thicken, thicken.
mircea_popescu: anyway, im not entirely sure we might ever see the diddled gpg that goes with this didlded key to produce anything interesting
mircea_popescu: but if we do see it, im definitely publishing the story.
davout: mircea_popescu: yup, not saying it's possible, saying that would be definitive proof
mircea_popescu: it would be, yes, if it were to somehow be found.
asciilifeform: actually the necessary diddle would be small:
asciilifeform: anything that doesn't check self-sigs.
davout: yep, not saying anything more
asciilifeform: probably includes at least one 'www-based' pgptron
mircea_popescu: asciilifeform nah, i suspect it's more subtle than that.
asciilifeform: subtle bug triggered by really terrible keys?
asciilifeform: also possible
mircea_popescu: there's a long tradition of "must fail to pass" bullshit seen in the wild, and allegedly not originated by nsa
asciilifeform: perhaps even remote exec
mircea_popescu: for all you know this is the magic packet required to X.

asciilifeform: mircea_popescu: this one's another 'invalid subkey...'
mircea_popescu: moreover, the way it presents the blob is as a single, shares pgp key blob
mircea_popescu: so can anyone get a key server, no matter which, to somehow swallow up an extra subkey for an existing key ?
asciilifeform: evidently
mircea_popescu: how ?
asciilifeform: the entire blob, notice, as per rfc2440/4880, is not in any way hashed

mircea_popescu: graham, altman &co are butthurt because we regularly mock their "venture capitalism" ? i dunno
mircea_popescu: !up tcrypt
alphonse23_: HN has changed a lot in the pass few months
alphonse23_: it's a lot more heavily moderated
alphonse23_: i've been going there daily for years, and I've noticed the change
mircea_popescu: davout that bet promises to be a conundrum to resolve.
davout: no shit
alphonse23_: but this, the mod manipulating titles -- for whatever reason. There's ton of down voting too.
alphonse23_: it's like, their in league with the NSA now or something...
mircea_popescu: eh, their site, they can do whatever they please.
mircea_popescu: i don't personally use it.
davout: the bet was misworded from the beginning, had someone intentionally created a set of shitty keys and fed the to the phuctor, it would resolve as yes
davout: the title diddling on HN is documented in the comments actually
mircea_popescu: the conundrum is more along the lines of "what constitutes a key"
mircea_popescu: alphonse23_ anyway, the mistake here is for members of the public naive enough to imagine conde nast / ycombinator / etc sites represent anything but the alt-reality their owners have a financial interest in.
davout: that's the easy part i think "anything recognized as such by asset's favorite gnupg version"
trinque: this guy's making me write a test program to fix an include in glibc
mircea_popescu: they will farm said naive members of the public for free content, yes.
trinque: lol
mircea_popescu: but that's as far as it goes.
trinque: it's plainly visible looking at the header itself
mircea_popescu: davout then i suppose it's not broken yet ?
davout: mircea_popescu: well, if i craft a key whose factors are 1 and 3, theoretically it's a valid gpg key
davout: if i then submit a key whose factors are 3 and 5
davout: phuxxored they are, to yes the bet should resolve
mircea_popescu: !up joshbuddy
mircea_popescu: davout yes, had you done it afore the bet i guess.
alphonse23_: mircea_popescu: but to do it so openly, how does that not hurt them.
davout: mircea_popescu: right, the bet does specify the number of moduli to test
joshbuddy: hiya, just hanging out after reading the hilarious rsa key blog post by .. umm you
mircea_popescu: alphonse23_ whom has heardbleed hurt ?
alphonse23_: so where the hell do I get my tech news from. Reddit? they Y combinator owns them too.
mircea_popescu: joshbuddy enjoy.
mircea_popescu: alphonse23_ once gossipd is done, i guess there.

mircea_popescu: alphonse23_ an ad-interim solution is of course variety. there's qntra doing bitcoin news. there's 8chan doing all sorts of things.
mircea_popescu: the man of one book, like the man of one site, is never too close to truth
mircea_popescu: http://log.bitcoin-assets.com/?date=17-05-2015#1134618 << seeing how the factors so far have been 3, 7 and 11... i imagine all the truely bad keys will be in one of those (possibly most/all of those) groups☝︎
assbot: Logged on 17-05-2015 15:59:46; adlai: jurov: yes, at least two keys need to have a primer in common. had phuctor run over the keys in reverse order, it would've found the other chump first
alphonse23_: sure. it just a shame. hacker news was a real gem back in the day. I'm sure it's inevitable, as things become more mainstream, they get too political, and less honest. Now I have to go out a find good honest news from somewhere underground.

ben_vulpes: serenissima runs on slave labor
DreadKnight: the republic of Venice?
DreadKnight: the project gets small contributions constantly, but when it comes to bigger stuff, people tend to vanish at about 90% progress xD
ben_vulpes: that last 10% is more expensive than anyone ever expects
DreadKnight: there's sure something strange going on when it comes to the last few steps
ben_vulpes: why would people work on it for free?
DreadKnight: we have a saying around, going something like "you drawn like the gypsy near the shore", meaning overall that you failed in the last few steps
DreadKnight: well, there are quite a few reasons, crediting (name/link), experience, the joy of contributing to something bigger just to name a few
DreadKnight: the other day found out that a cg animation series done in blender by just one dude used quite a few of the creatures from my project :)
ben_vulpes: heh
decimation: there are clearly people on hacker news who are enemies of #b-a
DreadKnight: the project itself is free, so this stuff is allowed provided crediting is done

decimation: I thought ninjashogun was one of the h-n mods?
DreadKnight: gmail is free and makes money, same goes for games like league of legends, soon even world of warcraft
ben_vulpes: decimation: in his dreams
ben_vulpes: DreadKnight: every single one of those companies pays their employees.
ben_vulpes: people working for a link or publicity need to have some sort of assurance that their time so spent is going to yield a return.
ben_vulpes: (i mean, everyone does, right? for every thing that we do.)
trinque: DreadKnight: doing the ad-supported thing is a loss leader at best; you have to be able to burn money until your audience is large enough to merit being paid for the # of eyeballs
DreadKnight: ben_vulpes, a return is not always needed, some people do things for passion or practice; there are quite a few nice free open source games out there and software, most likely the browser you are making is done half by unpaid contributors
DreadKnight: trinque, the ad crap is my last option
ben_vulpes: i'm just trying to point out why you're having problems retaining horsepower is all
ben_vulpes: just because she doesn't care about her boyfriend around that other guy doesn't mean diddly when it comes to your desire to get up her skirt
DreadKnight: ben_vulpes, yeah, I'm aware, that's why it's perfectly fine to pay people to work on open source and it's why I need some funding or get better at coding
DreadKnight: anyway, I partnered up with a coder this year, will see how that goes in the long run
