#cryptography

Certain Infineon TPMs use RSA key generation code that produces weak private keys which can be relatively easily factorized from the kown public key. (This vulnerability is the source of the Oct 10 TPM advisory by several companies.)
Obviously, it's possible to test public keys to find out if the key pair has been generated on affected devices.

#infosec #cryptography

This just came along over on G++: badbytes.blogspot.de/2015/10/t

I wasn't aware that the RSA algorithm allows for multiple private keys that can be used to decrypt a message (is that kind of a "key collision" then?)...

#Interview:

How to pique your #curiosity in #cryptography ...

We talked to the cryptographer David Wong about crypto-related blogs worth reading and exploring in an interview. We also asked him about the changing landscape of the crypto-world and the awareness of IT security issues.

#Australia cannot ban working #cryptography unless it bans #freesw and even then, a ban would create a "black market" of code

#introductions re-doing my introduction because my first one was awful. :P

I'm #nonbinary #autgender, I use they/them pronouns, I'm #actuallyautistic.

I'm here because of @cassolotl (who you should totally follow if you haven't already).

I like #programming #electronics #infosec and #DIY, among other things. I also like playing with #cryptography even tho I find it really hard. :P

I think #stimming is an #art and I really appreciate it.
