Trying to read this mozilla dev-security-policy email thread, and... it's absolutely terrible. (the interface.) How is anybody supposed to make heads or tails of what's going on here? The quotes are all messed, sometimes gray sometimes black sometimes hidden entirely. And then this Doug tool decides to reply inline without quote marks? How do people communicate like this? I've seen threads on Mastodon that were easier to follow than this.

Also, how the flying flapjack is this the one and only official archive for a mozilla mailing list?

Anyway, CA cabal doing CA cabal things.

Whenever I see a quote I've seen before, I wonder if it's an original quote or a requote. As in, has the person making this quote read the original source (book, paper, etc.) or are they just copying a quote they read elsewhere. I've seen some quotes 100s of times, but always exactly the same. Never the sentence before, never the sentence after, no additional context ever. Curious.

many one-shot style command-line utilities like cal or ls would be better off using sbrk() than malloc(), but alas that only works if you're willing to tie yourself to POSIX since it's not part of libc. the difference is that sbrk() just changes the size of the heap, so everything is linear, there's no fragmentation, and allocation is a very cheap call. you don't actually need to worry about freeing memory unless you're using a *whole* lot of it in unpredictable ways. calling free() when you're just going to exit the program anyway and thereby automatically return all its memory to the operating system is incredibly wasteful.

If I've read the knob attack correctly, it breaks paired devices. There have been a lot of practical attacks against Bluetooth pairing in the past, but generally a reliable countermeasure was to go out to your cabin in the woods, pair devices, then disable further pairing, and you'd be mostly safe. No more!

Reply control is coming together...

The idea is that instead of the typical thing where every rando to reply gets a spot on your microblog, only acked posts appear. This is slightly different than liking or sharing, though. It's a silent ack. Like moderated mailing lists of old. And more refined than giant banhammer outright blocking somebody because you don't feel like rehosting their posts.

What appears elsewhere is elsewhere's concern, of course.

A quick rundown of today's usenix crypto security session. With some links to the papers.

hoot: https://twitter.com/matthew_d_green/status/1162388394803994624

@matthew_d_green: Going to chair the best session of the day: “Crypto means cryptography”. But also it’s Usenix so anything could happen.

@matthew_d_green: For all we know, these papers could all turn out to be about fuzzing. Stranger things have happened.

@matthew_d_green: So the first talk is on “mobile private contact discovery at scale”. The idea is to use private set intersection to perform contact discovery for tools like WhatsApp and Signal. Tools with large userbases. https://www.usenix.org/conference/usenixsecurity19/presentation/kales

@matthew_d_green: This is a big problem. Signal has proposed to do it with Intel SGX trusted hardware. This work skips all that and does it with actual crypto. They get a huge improvement over previous works, for contact databases as big as 250 million users.

@matthew_d_green: This work really kicks the performance ball forward. But not quite enough. The authors contacted a major service to see if this could be deployed, and here are the requirements they got back vs. what this work can do. https://pic.twitter.com/dUBiwNfpS6

@matthew_d_green: Our next paper is on fuzzing.

@matthew_d_green: No, I’m kidding! Sort of. Actually it’s on generating verifiable zero-copy parsers so you *don’t* have to fuzz. https://www.usenix.org/conference/usenixsecurity19/presentation/delignat-lavaud

@matthew_d_green: The authors have a formally verified system for generating parsers that aren’t going to be exploitable. This is really hard. They give examples from TLS and Bitcoin. https://pic.twitter.com/1HIP54Is3T

@matthew_d_green: Anyway, aside from the tool: the biggest upshot of this talk for me is that apparently all the zero copy parsers out there being used are not verified. That’s surprising and a bit scary.

@matthew_d_green: This next paper is about “blind Bernoulli trials”. This is a really cool idea that I’m going to have a hard time getting across in a quick series of tweets, but screw it I’ll try anyway. https://www.usenix.org/conference/usenixsecurity19/presentation/connor

@matthew_d_green: So imagine I have a group of people and I want them each to flip a coin so it comes up heads with some chosen probability. We do this all the time with stuff like Bitcoin PoW, where everyone is doing trials and each one will win with some (small) probability.

@matthew_d_green: But in Bitcoin a big feature is that the probability (difficulty level) is known to everyone. What if you want to keep it secret? That’s what blind Bernoulli trials do.

@matthew_d_green: Unlike Bitcoin this requires trusted setup. Each user gets a key from some master authority. When I want you to flip a coin I encrypt some randomness and send it to everyone. Each user combines with their key. They get “heads” with exactly the chosen probability.

@matthew_d_green: I wasn’t able to keep up. But the next talk was extremely cool. Basically, they found a way to convert a deep neural network into a Boolean circuit, so it can be evaluated by two parties using Yao’s garbled circuits. https://www.usenix.org/conference/usenixsecurity19/presentation/riazi

@matthew_d_green: TL;DR it looks like this kind of multi-party machine learning computation is getting freakishly fast.

@matthew_d_green: I mean: the fuzzing people may be exploiting vulnerabilities in HotCRP so these papers could be anything :)

Here's a simple security privacy thing which I think should be possible, but the rockstars have not aligned.

Was setting up Uber on a new phone (for reasons). I need to enter a credit card. Every app now has a feature where I can take a picture of the card, but this requires camera access. Can be revoked, but requires digging through settings. But all the app needs is a number. Why no option for letting the app read a number through the camera?

A lot of privacy concerns could be alleviated by only providing processed data, not sensor access. Mobile OS service architecture seems built for this as well.

A little more Baltimore malware commentary. This seems like an angle that won't get much coverage. If you run up a large bill, and never receive it, you may not be liable for penalties, but you still need to pay the principal, and maybe you haven't been diligently saving for that event. Another cost pushed down.

@matthew_d_green: We’re getting our first water bill since Baltimore got ransomwared this Spring. Apparently it’s expected to be so large that people will have trouble covering it.

@matthew_d_green: The cost of this thing is just phenomenal. I understand the arguments around not paying ransoms, but if you’re going to go down that road you’d better have your IT security figured out.

@matthew_d_green: In Baltimore all the qualified devs work for the NSA or are busy writing spyware for the UAE, unfortunately.

@hypolite similar to how some forums don't show scores until after a delay, it would be an interesting experiment to have a discussion where posts don't become visible to nonparticipants for 24h. Have your argument, but know nobody will be applauding your dunks.

Or (and?) maybe one where replies must be approved. The norm would be to approve it (and community would learn not to engage with censors), but if it's unkind, it simply never appears.

humerous technology rant, xserver bullshit, :archlinux:​💯💯💯memery💯💯💯

When you get a new laptop, and install arch, but the media keys are all fucked up because they have ID's higher than 255 and X server is 8-bit for some reason...

So you have to use evdev to test the keys individually for the hardware "scancode," then xmodmap -pke to list all the software *key*codes and then you have to manually scroll through the 255-8 (for some reason) keycodes and their functions to find the right ones you want.

Then you have to use setkeycodes [scancode] [keycode] to rebind them manually HOWEVER you have to subtract 8 from the keycode number because for some reason beyond human comprehension the kernel decides to add 8 to the keycode.

Book recommendation, HTTP/2

Book recommendation, HTTP/2

In light of the recent HTTP/2 CVEs, here’s another book recommendation: if you want to learn a bit more about this protocol, Learning HTTP/2 is a decent choice.

It’s beginner-friendly enough to be accessible to people who didn’t really looked into most L7 protocols, and it’s a very easy read if you already have some HTTP/1.1 and TCP knowledge.

You can apparently get it DRM-free from ebooks.com, though there’s a mention of a “digital watermark” and I have no idea what that really is.

Mobile safari reader mode is astonishingly bad at picking content out of honk. Not even an option on most pages (fine), but when available and selected it randomly chooses about two posts and ignores all the others.

I've seen this on enough other sites to wonder, what in the world does Apple have in their testsuite for this feature? Exactly one nytimes article about the launch of the first iPhone?

@sylveon mastodon recently added a thing where even public posts require a sort of authentication (signed get request). otherwise you get an error, which kinda looks like the remote person blocked you. anybody running software from a few weeks ago is left out.

Nice... Mastodon signs fetches with the key of the individual user receiving the boost or reply. Probably a good argument not to do signed fetches by default. You are sending me excess and identifiable credentials. At least use a per instance key.

General silliness and mumbling. May contain bits of grouse.

Probably a bad idea, but (not quite seriously) considering rejecting signed fetches. There's a robustness argument to secure system design that operations with excess authority should fail. Mandatory principle of least authority. Kinda, I think I'm stretching a bit.

But this is how some systems do work. Accounts with blank passwords require a blank password. If you enter a real password, that's a failure. If it's a public object, then you should fetch it without passing any credentials.

Hopefully, with ocap, this isn't a problem because you'd know whether to obtain a cap or not. You wouldn't accidentally pass along a cap without need.

Distributing the resulting size to the children turns out to be two-step process. First it needs to know how much space is left over, and then it needs to distribute that out equally to all children so have plenty of whitespace in which to drag the window.

This is essentially the same process used by the deprecated GTKBox.

The last time we checked in with the openbsd port of alacritty, we learned it required doubling memory limits to compile. As things have progressed, we learn it calls lstat on its own config file ten times per second, cranking up CPU usage. Must be fun to have two dozen such processes running. And also takes 45 minutes to build, which in the grand scheme of things is perhaps too high a cost for regular package builds.

Sometimes people wonder why there are at least a few rust skeptics in the openbsd project. It's not entirely fair to pick one program to represent rust, but I think this is a good example of why, security aside, there's been a less than complete meeting of the minds.

@flussence call your ActivityPub vendor and tell them you want support for the Read activity. Doubt it'll ever happen, but all the protocol parts are there to stick a "mark read" button next to a message which will notify sender.
