RE: bitcoin-security mailing list:  bottom line is I don't trust you. I think you have made irresponsible decisions in the past, and I don't trust that you would handle sensitive security issues responsibly.  Happily there have been approximately zero cross-implementation security issues in the last six months, so it is more of a theoretical issue that you're not on the list....
 I don't trust Amir Taaki either! We all know him as a shady guy, and I dont want to invest my money in vaporware.

Can someone explain to me what the fear is here? That he would disclose some information to the public?

Read his description of what happened with Bitcoinica that he linked to earlier in this thread. It doesn't seem like he realizes what a huge mistake he made with the security breach, and he doesn't seem to really own up to it. It's more like "oops, oh well.. moving on...". People who take security seriously tend to have a certain mindset (listen to some interviews with the guy who created Armory), and from what I've seen that mindset is lacking in Amir.

Btw, it looks like this is the thread where Amir notified everyone of the breach (or a similar one, hard to tell because I think Bitcoinica was hacked 3 times): https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=93074

It doesn't explain why someone with such a mindset you describe shouldn't be allowed on that list.

I still feel that this project lacks a concrete plan. However, I strongly share similar views and have decided to support the project.
As everyone else has stated, please don't disappoint the community. Don't let this turn into another Bitcoinica.

Just a project to grab some coins together...thats it. Like he said above me, there is no significant plan and also not really a point. BUT, i will be the first who gives his excuse when it comes to a great project.

Need BadAss Bulletproof VPS or Bulletproof VPN or why not just mail safe with Safe-Mail. We care about your privacy.

Regarding bloom filtering you say:


So they take a giant dump on Bloom filtering - which I proposed and partly designed to solve this very problem - then it turns out that their "Obelisk server" doesn't have any alternative solution. It has a cool name but no solutions to difficult privacy problems. So in fact your privacy is much better protected by using the regular P2P protocol, talking to the regular P2P network and uploading a noisy Bloom filter (or sharded set of noisy filters). Too bad Amir regards that scheme as impure, rushed and a "debasement", otherwise he could just use it in Dark Wallet.


We don't discard bloom filtering altogether.

We have discussed about it, but are unsure about using it and would like to investigate other solutions. The zmq encryption is only so good to protect communications with the servers or other clients, but I'm not sure we can use bloom filters in all situations, also I'm not sure they really provide so much privacy unless used with other deniability or  practices to make sure information is not leaked because of for example how you use the program or other patterns that could be traced to de-bloom your transactions.

Anyways that kind of privacy is very important for us, and will make a client taking these things into account. We're making a client (and architecture) that will *care* about your privacy, but want to have some leads open for exploration, like darknet or onion routing... we're making a client here so can think a bit out of the box.

We're making a wallet that knows big brother is out there looking for you, we won't be so dummy as to think the only enemy is the user or the server, you know what happens when you don't make those assumptions.

Also mind that this is not just Amir working here, we have a lot more minds that thanks to this crowdfunding will be focusing on those problems.

I'm curious, what's wrong with luke-jr?

Dark Wallet Certification proposal:

Ref: Let There Be Dark!

Greetings from Bitcoin Singapore!

Hive will be attending unSYSTEM's DarkWallet meeting in Milan on the week of the 24th. We propose that the outcome of this meeting be, at minimum, the establishment of a v1 "Dark Wallet Certification", a set of best-practice guidelines for wallets focused on decentralization and anonymity.

This topic is has been opened in order to get the community thinking about what exactly a "Dark Wallet" should be: We assume the use of Tor, CoinJoin, CoinSwap and other such developments. We assume the lack of centralized services wherever possible. We presume that we can evolve ideas about authentication (see the work of John Light, Joe Casico etc)... Still, our ignorance is vast and we would like to come armed at this meeting, with your feedback.

What ideas or thoughts do you all have?

If anyone wants to come participate in development, you're more than welcome.

https://wiki.unsystem.net/index.php/DarkWallet/Meeting_Nov2013

This is the event for starting everything. We have more public talks in the first week of December, and spaces if people need a place to sleep (although it will be quite busy). If you have a proposal for a talk or need a bed then send me a PM. Feel free to visit if you're around.

can someone explain to me what would be the purpose of incorporating tor? what benefits would that offer that wouldn't already be achieved by coinjoin?

If one can not confer upon another a right which he does not himself first possess, by what means does the state derive the right to engage in behaviors from which the public is prohibited?
