What Would Have Happened If Philae Were Nuclear Powered?

sverdlichenko Re: Nuclear Power has Dangers (493 comments)

Not even close to nerve gas. The most important features of weapon-grade nerve gas is that it is not a gas but fine aerosol in first place, and it works not only when inhaled, but also on contact with skin. Even under these circumstances and with proper military deployment, it is expected to be 10000 doses needed to disable one soldier.
People worked with chunks of plutonium and almost no protection for years, and even minor incidents with chemical weapons tend to leave some wounded and dead. I believe in case of launch failure unburned rocket fuel would be more dangerous than plutonium.

sverdlichenko Writing on the wall (324 comments)

So using RC4 in TLS/SSL is cryptographically suspicious and legally troubled. What else do you need to disable it on your servers?

HTTP 2.0 May Be SSL-Only

sverdlichenko Re:SSL only = no benefit (320 comments)

It DOES make you more secure. Not every attacker is capable of planting MITM attack, and current CA infrastructure works just fine against passive eavesdropping. Some security is better then no security at all.

False positives' possibility is still ignored. Let's just grab everyone and think about children.

OpenPGP Implemented In JavaScript

sverdlichenko Re:Isn't encryption in JavaScript considered harmf (167 comments)

No, it isn't. This article implicitly assumes user trusts server with everything or not at all. Not a case with GMail: in most attack models I can perfectly assume Google will deliver me correct Javascript code over SSL, but never trust it with securing my email content. Account hijacks are quite usual and replacing code on GMail servers is completely another thing.

sverdlichenko Re:Sometimes linking should be illegal ... (297 comments)

How come I should care about legality of given software in any given country? Do you really propose to put yourself under chinese or madagascarian software patent, copyright and hacking laws?

sverdlichenko Re:HTTPS (379 comments)

No they can't. HTTPS inspection works only if user installed "trusted" certificate on his computer. This can be done in corporate environment, but not for home users.

How Far Should a Job Screening Go?

sverdlichenko Re:It's a financial institution (675 comments)

So why doctors are not fingerprinted? Financial programmer can just stole some money and doctor can actually KILL people. Same for medical equipment programmer, aircraft programmers, even your car brake control programmer: they are all in control of your LIFE, not just money. And somebody, think about children, check your school bus driver and school janitor!

May be you need some other security procedures here, like code reviews, testing, etc? Looks like this fingerprinting isn't good security trade-off.
