Interesting words on the security of symmetric keys.

Quote
Abstract. Traditional brute force attacks designed to break a target symmetric key are slow and inefficient. In this paper we introduce two new methods to reduce the time required to break a randomly selected symmetric encryption key. The first method relies on drawing 1-n random test symmetric keys. Extensive reductions in time can be realized through use of powerful hardware and multi-threaded processing of 1-n random test keys. The second method relies on the gambler’s technique of playing the odds to win. This method determines the odds of a target symmetric key containing identical byte sequences that are equal to 0. This will further reduce the time required to break a target symmetric key.

The following assumptions have been made about readers of this paper:

    Understands binary logic
    Understands that lower bits clear when a higher bit is set
    Understands that symmetric keys are made up of random or pseudo-random bytes
    Understands that lower key bytes will clear when higher bits cross byte boundaries

Quote
5. Conclusion

The effective strength of AES was theoretically compromised when it was first evaluated, and efforts to theoretically break AES have not abated since that time. While it has not been proven that AES has been compromised, we know it is possible to greatly reduce the complexity of breaking symmetric keys. We have proven that large reductions in complexity are possible, where each bit reduction halves total complexity. Like other paradigm-altering concepts, our solutions are simple, which may indicate they are already in use today.

Network communications rely on AES to encrypt and decrypt traffic through secure web sites, banking applications, online payments, and communications between computers (14)(15). The adoption of AES has greatly accelerated since Intel incorporated AES-NI into all of their CPU's. AES-128 bit keys may be broken using the methods outlined in this paper. AES-192 and AES-256 keys may prove secure for now, but will not remain secure in the future.

Software can be developed to distribute computing load across many processor cores and computers providing an opportunity to break symmetric keys using 1-n computers with 1-n cores. Processing time can be leased on cloud servers, super computers, and quantum computers. CPU's in future will be more powerful, and will support more cores and threads per core. Video graphics cards will be more powerful, and will support more CUDA threads. Memory and storage will increase in capacity, and decrease in relative cost.

While we believe that AES-192 and AES-256 remain secure to use, the size of symmetric keys must eventually be increased. While it may prove difficult to switch technology to more secure forms of symmetric encryption, secure encryption solutions are available that will help smooth the transition.

I would call that Bukovinian attire.  They may be Russian but... you would be more likely to find that pattern in Hungary or Romania imho
I'm sure you're wrong, buddy. The colors are traditional. But I also know that Hungary and Romania have similar national costumes.

Every Thursday, we could scoot around on our jet-skis-made-up-as-mock-pirate-ships, and Nerf-Rocket the shit out of JJG's island.
............ I mean, I can dare to dream, right ?
Remember what happened to Snowball in Animal Farm?  or Piggy in Lord of the Flies?
Not looking good for JJG in this "dream".
I studied Lord Of The Flies at school for English GCSE, got a B grade lol.
As soon as dat conch got smashed shit started going down Cheesy
Ahhhh memories of being at school - What a waste of time that was.

OK. See... I have wordy-man on ignore, so I would not normally see his post, but he has a terribly bad attitude about this possible utopia.

He's not thinking of "fun-factor" for defensive purposes on his end.

Can you imagine ? Coconut trebuchets, slings, and cannons, for example, aimed with some level of skill at us scooting Nerf-Gun-Pirates ?

At worst, some dude gets knocked the fuck off his scooter, life-jacket comes into play, and "pirate-squad" immediately tends to any fallen team-mates.

At best, coconuts float on water, so we'll have a bountiful harvest upon retreat.

Perhaps we up our game, and develop jet-skis with some sort of hydrostatic-pressure based mobile cannons, capable of returning the coconuts, softly, back to JJG's island.

Do I have to plan EVERYTHING ?!??


Now I understand JJG's avatar. He is jumping all over the place trying to dodge all the coconuts shot at him from the jetskis.

It's like... a premonition of $100K. Everything makes sense all of a sudden.

Have you ever seen any Ukrainian women?  Roll Eyes
Look, look at them someday (better personally), I guarantee you won't regret it! Cool


I was in Boryspil & Kiev in May for the Champions League Final. I saw many hot Ukranian girls. If I didn’t have a gf I would seek out a girl from Eastern Europe, they are VERY sexy.

re: infofronts "fuckyoucoiner" poll

my answer is based on todays value of ~$4k USD.

voted 200-499

reason is less than 200 btc is currently worth less than 1 mil USD (800k) max. now, combined with my other assets that possibly could meet minimum "set for life" money (although i would have to be careful) baring catastrophic collapse of fiat or other large scale unforeseen collapse of local civilization. although it could survive some fairly major "shit hits the fan things." largely because i already have a lot of what i need and all is paid off, in good repair, common failure mode spare parts, plus a decent amount of common maintenance stuff like tools, fuel, oil, filters are already purchased. stuff is well taken care of, and i have gone through a LOT of more or less worst case scenarios in my head, test my infrastructure and backup systems regularly, and modify things as real world testing indicates. a couple real world tests have validated my setups (tornado, week long power outage).

but to me thats not really "fuckyoucoiner" level. as you really have to e careful who you say "fuck you" to (aside from JJG on "fuckyou thursday" of course Grin).

so, at todays ~4k price i voted 200 - 499. so 800k-2 mil. split the difference, say 1.5 mil. combined with what i have that translates into being pretty comfortable. should allow a good sized cushion against much unforeseen stuff, still allow a pretty good lifestyle with the option of discretionary buying of toys and such. provides a decent amount of "fuck you" to things.

keep in mind that im older. younger people would need more as it needs to last longer. and if btc moons, well infofront will need a new poll.

I just did a "firecalc" for 1.5 million. Spending level of $58k. 95.8% success rate with at least 100k left over after 30 years, based on 118 total cycles, of which 5 failed. That's 3.91% of the starting portfolio.

I think that's pretty much fuckyou money, in addition to any other income you may have. Again, depends on your level of expenses. I voted a little higher, just in case.

So let me get this straight: you're saying they deserved to be massacred? And being a victim of a massacre isn't an appropriate time to "play victim"?

Yes. And their little children too, they are all part of the same group.

But not their dogs.

And no, I am not joking. The dogs did nothing wrong.

I wonder how someone could be intelligent enough to open an account on this forum but then retarded enough to condone a massacre of innocent people.
Thank you for your emotional ourburst. It was exactly what I expected. As a wise person once said, NPCs are gonna NPC.

Can you explain, with facts and numbers and cause and effect, why I am wrong? Your personal emotions in this moment are not evidence of anything.

Best movie quote ever :

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJgib2DBS2s

"Every being in the Universe knows right from wrong."
You're an idiot. No argument needed.
Hope this helps.
How about what? They rape our children, both girls and boys, and they do everything they can to kill us. So we kill them. Are you with us or against us? Are you a traitor?



Muslims are literally the second worst problem in the world.

Don't flatter yourself. You're a problem, you're not the first one though.
You're on ignore now like these other 2 digits IQ fucks roach and rebal.


EDIT : just read the last 20 pages and just saw that stupid discussion ended two or three pages ago. Good ! I hope my post doesn't bring it back.

It's prolly much more extreme than that. rich people hide their wealth. i'd guess Putin's richest in dollar terms with 2 or 3x Bezos' little pile.
on the other side, most westerners are in 'debt' up the wazoo, poorer than a third-world subsistence farmer, and probably not counted here because oh they have 'jobs'.

Just wanted to share some hopium:

"End of this week we could have for the first time since this bear market 6 green candles in a row for total crypto Marketcap.
This kind of configuration with short but increasing candles in most cases end with an acceleration with bigger candles, IF 140 B is breached"

I believe this to be a fundamental truth as I have alluded to in the past though I think many a ego trys to deny it. One of my favorite movies of all time with two of my favorite actors. Its rare for me to laugh and shed a tear over a movie yet at the end feel better about humanity. The scene where he is eating the whole bananas is epic.
