Just a little WIP from my messy workshop (should see the other half of the table). Got the idea for pride month, but will probably have them in a shop earlier. Now.. what flag to create next? :blobfoxhyper:

Coming soon: remote control of analog repeaters through #Hamnet. cc @Fred F4EED/KI7QQP
Control plane uses MQTT, either in fire and forget mode, or with reliable delivery and explicit command acknowledgement. #hamr #hamradio
in reply to isithran

Version 1 will include reboot, disconnect, change module, ping and RF kill/restore commands, version 2 will allow remote config provisioning. #hamr #hamradio #hamnet

Fox chirality!

Do foxes obey Bose-Einstein statistics, in which case their spin quantum numbers would be +1 and -1, or do they obey Fermi-Dirac Statistics, +1/2 and -1/2?

If the latter, it is possible that the fox is a Majorana fermion, in which case a fox of the opposite spin would be its antiparticle.

HKDF is commonly used to derive key material just in time for its application. However, as a cryptography tool, HKDF is severely under documented and lacks prescriptive examples for intended use.

A large-tech blog shared their HKDF application and I identify several issues with its implementation. Inside is an anonymized version with critiques and improvements.

Petite astuce si vous souhaitez faire basculer votre TIC en mode standard sur votre compteur Linky en étant client.e EDF:

Contacter le 09 69 32 15 15 puis choix 1, 2 puis 4.
Si le conseiller ne connait pas la procédure, dites lui de faire une F185 sur le site SGE en choisissant le mode standard. Préciser que la procédure a été confirmée précédemment avec le groupe TD.

Appeler de préférence en période creuse (temps de midi par ex). Normalement, le changement devrait être effectif la nuit suivante.

A DICOM image.

DICOM is the medical image format, very TIFF-like.
Its preamble makes many polyglots possible, including TIFF-DICOM sharing the same image data.
It doesn't tolerate appended data - but just append a "private" tag if needed.

Every company saying that their data is encrypted at rest with "strong encryption" is saying nothing. It's a free, effortless and shameless statement to boost the org's false security posture to the untrained masses. It's even worse when they say it to justify that their security was sufficient after a breach.

Encrypted data at rest just means they use the cloud. It's standard cloud practise. They give it basically for free at a button toggle. "Using military grade encryption" yes I know it's AES. That shouldn't make you feel any safer. Optus even said their unauthenticated API was protected by double layers of encryption! (TLS in transit and AES at rest!). That meant nothing, and did nothing to protect their breach. Why?

Because the threat models that encryption at rest protects against is someone walking into some data center and grabbing hard drives. And no one does that. Every piece of encrypted information stored by your business is constantly decrypted at some point for use - especially customer and production data. Any attacker who compromises your employees with access to cloud resources, or an application/system with access to those cloud resources will have credentials and permission to decrypt the data. Because at the end of the day encrypted data is just as useless to you as it is to the attacker.

when we, 1Password, talk about our layers of encryption we don’t even mention the encryption that comes free with AWS. What matters is data encrypted with available only to our users.
in reply to Jeffrey Goldberg

yea no, I get that, and SRP is not in the typical encryption bullshit list that I meant. 1password being a password manager obviously needs to have its encryption described on the tin, in technical detail, which it does quite well.

@h4sh, thank you. I wasn't taking your post as being about us. I, too, get very irritated when services call "encryption at rest" is a defense against an exceedingly narrow threat. (Someone walks away with the hard drives.)

I get even more irritated when auditors and the like conflate that with what we do.

Hum, that's not really an incitation to share...
in reply to isithran

tbf I share 99% of my library being online daily. But I still keep a few exclusive recordings which I know are either very rare to come by or shit I recorded from livesets from when I used to work as a sound engineer.

The rare records no one would actually be interested in, the live sets could easily be tied to me if they happend to leak on yt or something.

Note this is a choice some IT person made years ago and nobody realizes is optional, or something is actually broken and people just got used to it. Re-Auth could be entirely seamless if they wanted, or only enforced for certain apps. This is not intrinsic.

Something I see a lot is people accepting bad IT experiences as mandatory. Like this is life, get on with it. But this isn't remotely true.
It's a choice, sometimes just not a choice an organization realizes it has. I have to be the person calling bullshit on stuff because I know. Because I understand what's normal outside the org, or I have literally done their job before as an IT Generalist.

The business malaise in accepting deteriorated user experiences is frankly shocking.
You're being led like a dog by people who aren't being challenged to do better. Who often are not stupid and can do better, but have no mandate to venture it.

Honestly, one good thing for 2023 would be to set back up a blog, importing my old articles, doing old links management and posting at least once per month.
