"total ripoff and mostly worthless"

Bingo. PKI is such bullshit.

Bye, bye, IPv4. It was nice knowing you.

ARIN is down to 1 /8 of v4. In other words, it's effectively gone.

It was a typo; I was on my phone. Should be "content."

The issue is that it's often (and increasingly so) faster and cheaper to reach content over v6 than v4, even for dual-stacked clients. With v4 you'll have to NAT at the client end and possibly again at the ISP end. With v6, you go straight out to the server.

ISPs are already running low on v4, and none of them really want to deploy CGN. It's expensive, fragile, and slow.

OpenBSD's fork of OpenSSL has a name. I recommend you donate to them, and not to OpenSSL.

OpenSSH isn't "ten years out of date", in fact it's a leading brand. There's no reason to suppose that LibreSSL would be out of date either. And look at tmux, another application written for OpenBSD as a replacement for GNU screen. It's lighter than screen, written to be maintainable, and is gaining market share on the virtually unmaintainable GNU product.

This may be the most ridiculous book I've ever seen.  I have to wonder if the author is trolling the reader.

Really good thoughts from Poul-Henning Kamp about security and the important of code auditing in the open-source community. It's amazing how much we shoot ourselves in the foot. I'm surprised we aren't compromised more (at least that we know of).

Fine grain Cross-VM Attacks on Xen and VMware are possible

Oh joy -- cross-VM timing attacks in the most popular crypto libraries run inside the most popular VMs. Looks like AES-NI and 256-bit keys can mitigate this, though.

Cross-VM cache attacks in Xen and VMware VMs targeting AES running in the victim VM.... Here we show that AES in a number popular cryptographic libraries including OpenSSL, PolarSSL and Libgcrypt are vulnerable to Bernstein’s correlation attack when run in Xen and VMware (bare metal version).... We also show that the vulnerability persists even if the VMs are placed on different cores in the same machine.

The story of the two women, and dozens of Samsung workers with leukemia and other rare cancers, is now a very public one in South Korea.

I wonder if same people who were so upset about Apple and Foxconn will get upset about unsafe working conditions at Samsung Electronics' factories.

The Chromium folks are (were?) talking about migrating from NSS to OpenSSL. I wonder if they're rethinking that in light of OpenSSL Valhalla's audit.

I was wondering how long it would take Danny Dilger to chest thump about how superior Apple is for avoid Heartbleed. Which is pretty ballsy in light of goto fail. Also, his critiques of open source ring pretty hollow. I wish I could say I was surprised, but, sadly, I'm not.

Great trails and rocks to climb. Stopped here with my dog, and he loved it.

Very limit vegetarian selections. Service is quick, though. Overall, there are better restaurants in the area.

It's reasonably good and quick for lunch takeout. They have a buffet with several Americanized dishes, and always have a few vegetarian selections.
