Siri Keeps Your Data For Two Years

PartyBoy!911 So it's not actually anonymous (124 comments)

As the map you voice recordings to an id and map that id to your apple id, I find it very strange they can claim it's anonymous!

From a better article:
http://arstechnica.com/apple/2013/04/apple-remembers-where-you-wanted-to-get-drunk-for-up-to-2-years/

Muller pointed out, however, that the identifiers are deleted immediately—"along with any associated data"—when a user turns Siri off on his or her device. (You can do this by going to Settings > General > Siri on a supported iOS device.)

If you can delete the identifiers and associated data when disabling Siri, it is not anonymous.

Also voice recognition has been working fine for many years now, if they want to find your voice clips it shouldn't be much trouble.

Draft IETF Standard for SSH Key Management Released

PartyBoy!911 Maybe they should look at FreeIPA & SSSD (35 comments)

Why reinvent the wheel :-%

https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/17/html/FreeIPA_Guide/user-keys.html

5.3. Managing Public SSH Keys for Users
OpenSSH uses public-private key pairs to authenticate users. A user attempts to access some network resource and presents its key pair. The first time the user authenticates, the administrator on the target machine has to approve the request manually. The machine then stores the user's public key in an authorized_keys file. Any time that the user attempts to access the resource again, the machine simply checks its authorized_keys file and then grants access automatically to approved users.
There are a couple of problems with this system:

        SSH keys have to be distributed manually and separately to all machines in an environment.
        Administrators have to approve user keys to add them to the configuration, but it is difficult to verify either the user or key issuer properly, which can create security problems.

On Fedora, the System Security Services Daemon (SSSD) can be configured to cache and retrieve user SSH keys so that applications and services only have to look in one location for user keys. Because SSSD can use FreeIPA as one of its identity information providers, FreeIPA provides a universal and centralized repository of keys. Administrators do not need to worry about distributing, updating, or verifying user SSH keys.

Draft IETF Standard for SSH Key Management Released

PartyBoy!911 Re:ldap? (35 comments)

There is SSSD for that:

http://www.ohjeah.net/2011/06/09/linux-ssh-pam-ldap-sssd-2008-r2-ad-deployment/

The SSSD is intended to provide several key feature enhancements to Fedora. The first and most visible will be the addition of offline caching for network credentials. Authentication through the SSSD will potentially allow LDAP, NIS, and FreeIPA services to provide an offline mode, to ease the use of centrally managing laptop users.

The LDAP features will also add support for connection pooling. All communication to the ldap server will happen over a single persistent connection, reducing the overhead of opening a new socket for each request. The SSSD will also add support for multiple LDAP/NIS domains. It will be possible to connect to two or more LDAP/NIS servers acting as separate user namespaces.


It is originally a Fedora project but has been ported to most other distro's.

In combination with FreeIPA it is even better.

Controversy Over Violet Blue's Harm Reduction Talk

PartyBoy!911 Re:What? (562 comments)

So the people who talk about rape all the time (Ada initiative) can't handle some nerd speaking about how bad date rape drugs are?

If you are correct in your assumption that this talk would trigger bad stuff in rape victims, then the same should apply to this very post.
So by your own reasoning your own posts and the attention you create by pulling this talk will harm many more rape victims than would be present in the room.

And why only woman victims? Is rape only done by men??? Or do you only care about women? If you only care about women, why should men care about you?

Supreme Court Disallows FISA Challenges

PartyBoy!911 Re:Sets up the first test case nicely (306 comments)

What you need is a fallguy. Someone who will appear to be a terrorist and did nothing wrong.

Build hidden listening and video in his house, shove a gps tracker up the ass and have this person be as suspect as can get.

When they grab him, you have a case....

How Game Streaming Went From Shaky Webcams To the PS4

PartyBoy!911 Re:MultiPLAYER? (113 comments)

Most of the time we play single player games with multiple people. Just hand over the controller when you die or are stuck. And we always try to help the person playing.

PartyBoy!911 I hope they fucking drown 'em in that shit (113 comments)

Having been fan of a not internet connected PS3, I'm going to skip the PS4 and just buy myself a nice linux gaming rig.

I hope this catches on because Youtube will get stuffed with these useless video's. I wonder if google really has unlimited storage

Tax Peculiarities Mean Facebook Paid No Net Taxes For 2012

PartyBoy!911 Re:Wrong question (307 comments)

We don't need your mexicans, we have lots of immigrants of our own. Turks, Marrocans, africans, chinese, you name it.

But why are you so upset by the mexicans. As far as we in the old world see it, the US is just a buch of immigrants who kicked some primitives out of their country and claimed it as the home of the brave...

You my dear "Bing Tsher E" are the immigrant who needs to get put on a boat and let the indians roam free again.

Researchers Devise New Attack Techniques Against SSL

PartyBoy!911 Re:Could this be the NSA's secret crack? (33 comments)

Well it's not so far fetched as you think. They talk about it themselves:

http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2012/03/ff_nsadatacenter/all/

Meanwhile, over in Building 5300, the NSA succeeded in building an even faster supercomputer. “They made a big breakthrough,” says another former senior intelligence official, who helped oversee the program. The NSA’s machine was likely similar to the unclassified Jaguar, but it was much faster out of the gate, modified specifically for cryptanalysis and targeted against one or more specific algorithms, like the AES. In other words, they were moving from the research and development phase to actually attacking extremely difficult encryption systems. The code-breaking effort was up and running.

The breakthrough was enormous, says the former official, and soon afterward the agency pulled the shade down tight on the project, even within the intelligence community and Congress. “Only the chairman and vice chairman and the two staff directors of each intelligence committee were told about it,” he says. The reason? “They were thinking that this computing breakthrough was going to give them the ability to crack current public encryption.”
